    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

    wooowwwwww, i love these!

  • 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!!

  • Ll

  • Tete Solitaire

    Don’t Wanna Know How You Did It: You Did It!

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!
