"The work of D.M. Cook is grounded in a sort of intricate mystery; a fundamental surrealism that seems to lurk at the edges of everyday existence. These images capture an essence that is completely his own, charged with urban tension and bound by the lyricism of nature. At turns hallucinatory and majestic, Cook's work remains eerily calm, strangely composed, like a final frame glimpsed before waking. [...] And if this is a dream, it is a dream our world sorely needs right now."
