    Heroes, monsters and titans, awright… these illustrations make me think of the old bible-school books we used to have to thumb through on Sundays… although these make me think way more Old Testament than King Jimmy’s version (the sequel).

    Love this, rather excellent.

    The Wyrms are probably my favourites here. Any information on what these monsters are from? I thought I saw a bit of Grendal/Beowulf in some of them at first glance, but I am pretty sure that’s not it now.

    Haha, these selection seems to be about my monsters, some of them are coming from Lewis Caroll, some others coming from the matchbox labels !
    Anyway thanks for the post, I love that blog, have you had a look on our expérimental publishing project ICINORI.com with Mayumi Otero? Could interest some people, most of that pictures are coming from books made for icinori…

    Thanks for your interest !

Colourful Yet Catastrophic Photographs by Japanese Artist Yoshimitsu Umekawa


Equal parts mesmerizing and unsettling, Yoshimitsu Umekawa’s photographs are positively (and negatively) nuclear, drawing on the issues and anxieties that surround modern day Japan. See more images below.
