  • His work is overwhelmingly beautiful…

  • Even though there’s something eerie about these there’s also something very peaceful…

    Wow, I really adore these, especially the second, they look like lovely ghosts!

  • As far as I’m concerned, Borremans is The King.
    His works show such a sense of loss. Painting’s strength is its ability to play with time and memory. Borremans has it cold.

  • that’s stunning! I love the original perspective he uses, and the atmosphere is so unique…

  • Eery and stunning. It has that in my opinion a perfect blend of realism and expressionism.

  • I like very much Borremans, thanks

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!
