The Photo-Composites of Jim Kazanjian


I discovered that artist and thought I would share some of his work here. I found his universe of ramshackle buildings, crumbling labyrinths and claustrophobic spaces very inspiring. I’m not sure how he works but these are recomposed photographs rather than shots. This means that all those landscapes are entirely fictitious constructions.
Someone wrote: “None of the images qualify as photographs, yet each piece is entirely photographic” which cannot be put any better. Hope you like him, that’s the links for more information:

J'ai découvert cet artiste et ai pensé que je pourrais partager certains de ses travaux ici. Je trouve son univers de bâtiments délabré, de labyrinthes effondrés et d’espaces claustrophobes très inspirant. Je ne suis pas certain de savoir comment il fonctionne mais ce sont des photos recomposés plutôt que des endroits photographiés. Cela signifie que tous ces paysages sont entièrement fictifs.
Quelqu'un a écrit: "Aucune de ses images ne peut être qualifiée de photographie, pourtant, chaque pièce est entièrement photographique" ce qui ne peut pas être mieux dit.

  1. They're very strange but quite appealing shots.

  2. I love this sort of composite photo. Its like a cross between Ansel Adams and Salvadore Dali. Thanks for sharing the link.
