Charming Illustrated Cinemagraphs Reflect The Idyllic Mood Of Lazy Summer Days
by Rebecca Mock
When French illustrator Thomas Lamadieu looks up at the patches of blue sky between city buildings, he imagines fanciful characters existing in the geometric gaps formed by the neighboring buildings. Lamadieu shoots photos of those patches of sky and illustrates them for an ongoing series entitled Sky Art. Thus far he has drawn pictures on the skies over streets and enclosed courtyards in France, Germany, Belgium and Canada.
Shut your eyes and think of somewhere
Somewhere cold and caked in snow
Whitefish Dunes State Park.
This week I decided to give notebook-making a break and instead extend my previous photo documentation of bookbinding and everyday essentials into a ‘serlf-portrait’ series. The photos look at items and accessories I naturally find myself pairing together in day-to-day use. And draws attention to similarities between items in materials, colours, and moods.
I’m thinking of further exploring these series of photos by including things like.. meals I usually cook for myself for breakfast, lunch, dinner. Or items I associate with work juxtaposing with items I associate with play.
