Artist Ian Ingram explores the art of the self-portrait, working with charcoal, pastel, ink, watercolour, as well as less conventional things like beeswax, string, and butterfly wings. A graduate of the University of Chicago, Ingram now lives and works in Sayulita, Mexico. Check out more of his incredible work below.
In his series Landscapes (the first 4 images), Levi van Veluw de-contextualizes various landscapes, digitally compositing them onto photographs of himself. In Material Transfers (the last 3 images), he does the same thing using random materials and without any digital manipulation. Interesting work.
Do you remember the guy who took a photo of himself everyday for 6 years and turned it into a video on Youtube? That guy was Noah Kalina and his video now has over 10 million views. For whatever reason I never looked into who he was and only discovered recently that he is actually an amazing photographer and not just some “youtube guy”.
