April 3rd, 2012

Ian Ruhter has always been a photographer that I look up to. His work is super unique in both style & concept. His newest project Silver & Light, takes you on a journey where not very many photographers get to go.

Words from Ian’s project:

We can’t do this without you. We want to tell your story and show your city or town through photographs of you, and people you know.

Join us in our journey by liking our facebook to get yourself photographed by us.

Cut Paper Sculptures look like 3D Stained Glass

March 4th, 2012

Artist Eric Standley created these mind blowing 3D-like sculptures out of paper. Each appear to have been cut using a laser cutter. Much like Guy Laramee’s paper landscapes, these sculptures are extremely intricate. Pieces of paper bridge out over others while appearing deceivingly strong. In Standley’s bio it says he sleeps on rare occasions; judging by his work it’s hard to believe. His work is a testament to the great things people can create.
