360° Visual Stories Cut into Paper Books by Yusuke Oono

January 8, 2014

Christopher Jobson

This fun set of paper books was created by Japanese graphic designer and architect Yusuke Oono who conceived the idea as a clever way to illustrate scenes from individual stories in three dimensions. The 40-panel books are laser cut from paper and assembled into a booklet that can be viewed page by page or fanned out as a sort of layered diorama of silhouettes. You can see dozens of additional views from each book right here.

Photography student Guy Cohen lives and studies in Jerusalem, and travels to locations around Israel and elsewhere in the world to capture some of these great images that toy with aspects of light, shadow, and perspective. Although just 24 years old the emerging talent has been shooting for over 8 years and is currently working on a large project involving the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. You can follow his work on Facebook or 500px and prints are available upon request.

Street artist and illustrator Daan Botlek is based in Rotterdam, Netherlands and is known for his strange form of character-driven street art. His generally simplistic, site-specific figures often interact with the space around them, passing in and out of unseen dimensions, shedding skin in the process. Kind of like morbid Keith Haring, no? You can see much more of his work over on Flickr. (via Lustik)

Spanish artist Nacho Ormaechea who lives and works in Paris creates beautiful digital collages by filling silhouettes of people photographed on the street with visually contradicting images. Because of the these strange juxtapositions of color, place and subject we’re left wondering what the meaning is. Are these memories or desires of these anonymous people, or are they portals to another place and time? Head over to his website to see more.

Just spotted this great series of hands and feet photographed through milk glass by Czech creative director and photographer Marek Chaloupka. The vertical perspective coupled with the ghostly silhouettes makes these really special. See more of Chaloupka’s work over on Behance. (via it’s complicated)
