Photographer Rune Guneriussen from Norway combines Landscapes with household objects.  The description from “Cool Hunting” is way better then anything i could write:

“The scenes capture a peculiarly Nordic combination of otherworldliness and dark humor. A herd of desk lamps turn their lighted heads downwards to graze in the twilight of a lonely Savannah. Two chairs battle for supremacy on a lonely beach amidst a group of helpless bystanders. A line of telephones negotiates a stony mountain pass.
While Guneriussen offers no interpretations of her work, the surreal juxtaposition of man-made objects with distinctly wild settings evokes the fragility and ultimately the ridiculousness of man’s efforts to subdue nature. The clean, sterile lines of the objects stand in defiant contrast to the ragged edges of the stones, waves and trees around them. “

I really like this contrast, the colors and lights of nordic landscapes. Some could be mimicking animals,  others are just completely misplaced..i think “Telefon” is my favourite.
And there´s lots of other great work on her website. I specially like “Evolution” and “Kraft”.
