    Holy ahhhh I want to write a list of curse words to describe my level of disbelief but I’ll censor myself OH MY GOD THESE ARE UNREAL!!!

    I am very interested in this kind of work right now, but I can’t help but think… can’t he celebrate the beauty of nature by going and and photographing the real thing. I understand it is an art and that he is very talented, it is just ironic.

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      if he did, i wouldn’t be as excited about it!

      • http://okgoods.wordpress.com/ AmyK

        True, and I probably wouldn’t have come across his work at all. I’m just saying.

        Ha, it kind of reminds me of food styling. Looks so good, but don’t eat it! Can’t run through his field though I know we all want to. But that proves his point, he constructs these worlds we want to be apart of (or in the case of the tornado, think are so beautiful).

        this is why i want the Fantastic Mr Fox (making of movie) book. this kind of stuff is so amazing

    @jeffhamada that’s funny I was about to say how this reminds me of a Wes Anderson film, so much detail.

  • http://www.kimgilldesign.com Kim

    I LOVE this!!
    It reminds me of what some folks used to do for movie backgrounds. I kind of wish we wouldn’t depend upon computers so much and use our hands to create with. Sometimes technology is not always the best way to go.
