Thank You Ophelia!

A couple packages showed up at my door step the other day and I was delighted to see that they were both from Ophelia Chong. I was pretty excited! I tore open carefully unsealed the envelope, and inside was this little box with a familiar shape on it.

Along with one of her trademark collage pieces she also included some very cool prints. Thank you very much Ophelia! I dedicate this song to you – Tommy Evans – Ophelia:

I doubt there are many people reading this that have even heard of Tommy Evans, let alone this song – but if you have, then you better swing by my house so we can high five each other.

Sneak Peek of Timothy Saccenti and Sam Rolfes’ New Book

saccenti9

saccenti6
 

Visionary director and photographer Timothy Saccenti has a beautiful print project coming out! Made in collaboration with 3D illustrator Sam Rolfes and heavily inspired by model/actor Sui Nakashima (who Saccenti met on a project for Depeche Mode’s last album), SUI: A Journey in Self-Realization explores identity formation and transformation through a series of computer-generated manipulations.

The cinematic feel of the project is testament to Saccenti and Rolfes process, shooting thousands of frames in studio with Rolfes live scanning and manipulating on set/in real time. SUI consists of 35 unbound images that allow the reader to go through them in whatever way they choose. It also comes packaged in a reflective polychrome box encased in a vellum sheet, a deliberate decision on the part of CYMK Books to enhance the unique, material aspect of the project. Check out more images of SUI below!
