    …whoa! just whoa!

  • xander

    I really like the 10th pic where its just her hair and eyes done, looks like a finished piece already

  • Pink Elefant Designs

    Amazing work! I’ve always admired photorealism.

  • Samuel

    Spectacular!

  • Very realistic. Skills!

  • heather

    i like how he demystifies the process. it’s more interesting than the content of the drawing, or the final result

  • ya i think so too – i enjoy most of the unfinished images more than the finished work.

  • jon

    technically amazing, but i honestly think what would have been a more interesting drawing is if stopped after the eyes

  • rye

    the hair is a trip! how the hair pops out of the page like that.. magic.

  • El

    Wow. Beautiful.

    He makes it look like it’s easy to follow the steps. But I will definitely end up with something way off.

    Such great skill.

  • Wow, human 10Mpx camera. Respect.

  • koston

    what kind of pencil he use? I mean the white one, used to draw on pastels.

  • tais

    I think it’s a tiny eraser–look at his website and scroll down for a bunch of more photos of the process. He also lists his materials and there’s no mention of a white pencil.

  • alberto

    ¡BEAUTIFUL!

    • olumide

      pls can you tell me the na of the material that you are useing

  • FF222

    So where is art in doing a job of a photocopier with a pen and tracing lines and shades of an original photograph obviously projected onto a sheet of paper?

  • Paul E N Okafor

    Well done Son. I’m very proud of what you’ve become. Your perseverance and full dedications with your daily practice is now paying you the dividends of hard work. The sky will be your limit of success in your field of Art. God bless you.

Photographer Daniel Ranalli Spends Two Decades Capturing Snail Trails

“Spiral #9” (1996)

 

Massachusetts-based photographer Daniel Ranalli has spent more than 20 years on his “Snail Drawings,” a series which consists of one image of neatly configured snails and a second image of the unique patterns made when the snails were left to their own devices.

While a simple enough concept, Ranalli sees the project as a reflection of the inherent randomness of life and our inability to control the results or elements of a situation no matter how hard we might try! See more of Ranalli’s work below or on display at Classic Photographs Los Angeles January 21-22.
