I am absolutely in love with Stacey Page’s recent body of work. She uses found vintage photographs and sews in beautifully stitched details. A few of these pieces are up for sale on her etsy store. I hope she makes a small portfolio book or brochures of these beauties, I’d love to purchase one for my collection of artist books.
Working with stylist Davy Pittoors and flowers supplied by The Willow Shoreditch, photographer Alexander James has created an incredibly beautiful series, Drowning in Brands. This collection features 10 recreations of some of the most recognizable brand symbols within the commercial world. I think what I enjoyed most about this series is the process of creation, and the fact that these did not undergo post production work either traditional or digital. Alexander required only rose formations and effectively clever lighting for this dark underwater photography. To view more of his work, make sure to visit his blog and stock library.
Markus Hofer creates sculptures that which holds plenty of narrative energy. I would believe it if you told me even his business cards held concept behind them. Markus intervenes on the structure of basic objects, and transform them to become the representations of an idea. Though they wouldn’t look too different from their original form, they are tweaked just enough to get the point across.
Freelance illustrator Maria Imaginario creates interactive illustrations infused with personality and humor. I particularly love her illustration with the dancing poo man! Really awesome stuff.
