    Really? That’s out of control.

  • WOW. This is so beautifully awesome. I want to see the process behind these so bad. I’d pay cash moneys to behold the wizardy. You hear me, Ruud?!?! CASH MONEYS

  • Thanks to Kate (http://www.twitter.com/katetropa) for pointing me to the artist!

  • Jimmy

    technique- and style-wise, this work is identical to some other photo-collage-grapher vaguely lodged in the back of my mind…. content-wise it’s different enough I suppose, and if I remember correctly I prefer Van Empel’s work to hers. I’ll have to hit the books when I get home to confirm.

    nice. some pierre & gilles influences

  • lisanne

    Jimmy, you mean Loretta Lux?

  • Yes, it is exactly like the missing link between loretta lux and pierre et gilles

  • JCD

    Stunning, I am totally taken in by these, excellent!
