Sneak Peek of Timothy Saccenti and Sam Rolfes’ New Book

saccenti9

saccenti6
Visionary director and photographer Timothy Saccenti has a beautiful print project coming out! Made in collaboration with 3D illustrator Sam Rolfes and heavily inspired by model/actor Sui Nakashima (who Saccenti met on a project for Depeche Mode’s last album), SUI: A Journey in Self-Realization explores identity formation and transformation through a series of computer-generated manipulations.

The cinematic feel of the project is testament to Saccenti and Rolfes process, shooting thousands of frames in studio with Rolfes live scanning and manipulating on set/in real time. SUI consists of 35 unbound images that allow the reader to go through them in whatever way they choose. It also comes packaged in a reflective polychrome box encased in a vellum sheet, a deliberate decision on the part of CYMK Books to enhance the unique, material aspect of the project. Check out more images of SUI below!

We’ve featured Micah Ganske on the site a couple times (see here and here). Check out this video portrait, directed by Alex Amoling as part of Distinct’s doc series, to see why. In addition to offering a great introduction to his work (which combines elements of 3D printing/sci-fi/virtual reality with sculpture/painting), Ganske shares wonderful insight into his creative process and how his drive toward experimentation staves off creative blocks and cultivates the kind of inspiration that evolves gradually over time. Watch below!
