    fantastic use of both light and background. that’s some next-level portraiture shit!

  • Phil

    These are beautiful, rare talent indeed.

  • Jen

    I LOVE these portrait/photo journalistic photos. Oh the stories behind each one.. they get me asking questions , lots of them, and that to me marks a FAB photo! I would love to know what city /area these were taken if possible. Thanks! Great work!!!

  • JEN, These are from Paul’s series “We Shall” shot around the Cabrini-Green area of Chicago. Paul currently teaches at Columbia in Chicago. http://www.pauldamato.com/work/

  • Rivard

    Hey old man. Nice work. Shoot me an email.

  • Incredible work, fantastic rich lighting, superb play of contrasts (girl with a pillow, boy by the pool!!!!), more than the awesome composition balance and finally what a mood, maestro! What to say, handling street people on such level of concentration is beyond real.

    beautiful, normally I don’t love staged photos but these somehow still seem so natural, I don’t know, something about them

Inflatable Geometric Dome Explores the Transformative Nature of Colour

Pneuhaus1

“Fabric Prism” by art collective Pneuhaus (aka Matt Muller, Augie Lehrecke and Levi Bedall) is an interactive installation made from an inflatable, light-sensitive membrane of their own design. Constructed earlier this month as part of PVDFest 2016 in Providence, Rhode Island, the boldly coloured fabrics on the exterior of the geometric dome translate into more subtle shades inside, depending on the time and brightness of the day. More images below.
