You will love these photos. Take a closer look. These are hands transformed into art. These pictures are shot by the renowned photographer Ray Massey. His long time collaborator is the British artist Annie Ralli. She helps him to create this optical illusion. It takes hours to prepare the model’s hands, sometimes a lot more than 3 hours, just preparing for the photo-shoot. The photo-shoots are housed at Massey’s studio at a former church in the north of Camden Park, Road London.
Find out what Massey says about this project:
‘We are trying to reproduce emotions with a hand. If we talk about a person, we could always make this person look happy, sad or smile or even grumpy.. But is a much harder to get some feeling or story from just a hand.’
Daniel Agdag is the man behind the unbelievably beautiful cardboard sculptures. The Australian artist uses primarily box board and glue to put together his astonishing creations. By working with cardboard he is pushing constantly the limits of the medium, giving a new life from discarded materials. Agdag hardly ever sketches anything, most of his artwork is done without any detailed plans. Miraculously the level of detail is mind blowing. Daniel is also an award-winning creator of stop-motion films series for his work “Sets for a Film I’ll Never Make”. You can check his latest creations at Off the Kerb Gallery.
