Brooklyn photographer Stephane Missier AKA Charles le Brigand, came across an interesting site when taking photos of beach houses in Queens. When coming across the parking lot at Jacob Riis Park, the photographer came across an eerie landscape of pyramids.

Brigand explains:

“I knew the city was using the parking lot as a debris transfer site but I wasn’t expecting such an eerie landscape. Also, there were all kinds of construction and hauling trucks on the site as well as generators, watch towers, and pole lights, so I really had the impression of being on another planet — on some kind of spatial station.”

The artist felt like he was on some sort of lunar landscape. This is from the photographer’s official website:

“The dunes are made out of sifted sand from the surrounding area, by workers who shoveled the sand from the streets after Hurricane Sandy’s passage. Polished by the cold winter wind, these artificial cones formed an eerie lunar landscape.”
