Levi Mandel

Levi Mandel photographs unsuspecting subjects, and then crumples and re-photographs the printed images. These instantly reminded me of works by Christiane Feser.

    I like that you aren’t afraid to point out similarities or rip offs between artists. Thanks for being real Jeff.

  • i just want to make it clear i wasn’t suggesting anyone ripped anyone off – these just reminded me of the work Feser and it is likely there are other artists exploring this simple idea.

  • Oye

     Similarities and rip offs are two VERY different ideas, Colbyedwards. These photographs are yes, similar to those of Feser, but far from a rip off. Stylistically, the only thing that the two works actually have in common is the idea of crumpled portraits.
    Feser’s images are pulled from magazines, Mandel’s are his own. Feser
    folds her portraits in an organic manner, Mandel folds his
    realistically.

    • yea i dont think colby was suggesting they were rip-offs but i just wanted to make sure it was clear i wasn’t – im not in the habit of doing that sort of thing

      thanks for the comments, although there are similarities they are definitely exploring different ideas

      • Colbyedwards

        Yeah I wasn’t suggesting a ripoff or saying that you were, I just really dig that you can call it out when necessary, Or give another artist credit as well. Everyone deserves credit weather its new or re-explored. By the way i really dig both artists work. And I think they are both being original in their own way.

35mm Camera Made Entirely with 3D Printing

slo2

SLO is a 35mm camera created by 3D designer Amos Dudley, every part of which is 3D printed, including the lenses (although those took about 5 – 6 hours to be sanded down by hand). Designed with a modular lens and shutter system, the lenses can be swapped in/out and longer exposure photos achieved using the shutter buttons along the top. More images of SLO below! You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
