    Fantastic take on the renaissance rendering without being mundane. Original and haunting! Love it.

  • yes very haunting

  • I love these, especially the 3rd from the top.

  • Give me a feeling anxiety.

  • Lucy

  • damn… very cool.

  • sr

    geez… these are amazing

  • classical trash

  • amazing. really nails it.

  • Gene

    These feel very strange and dark. It has a Bacon-esque style to it. And the ‘peeling’ effect is what makes it pop out!

    • ALEX IKHIDE

      OMG!!!! that’s exactly what i thought as well as soon as i saw these!! its sort of a re-imagining of francis bacon’s style and form of work

  • They are all amazing but I really love the fourth one.

  • Eerie and beautiful.

  • heather

    YES

  • Vuk

    Inspiring..It reminds me of Adrain Ghenie, another great artist seen here on booooom

  • Hanna

  • Alec

    I can’t find any extensive writing on this guy in English, has anyone else?

    Also, does anyone know if the peeling effects are 3d or painted?

  • Wow!!

A Camera Made from 32,000 Drinking Straws

Photographer Michael (Mick) Farrell and Cliff Haynes perfected a way of capturing images using a wooden box filled with 32,000 drinking straws. Started in 2007, and undergoing several different versions, the Straw Camera basically works by processing the light collected through each straw (as opposed to a pinhole camera which creates an image from a single point).

Due to the multitude of perspectives the resulting image looks a bit like a pointillist painting made up of many, tiny dots. See more images below or click here to check out the book recently released about the project!
