tusks:

silhouettes made with multi-colored layers by Dan Tobin Smith & Rachel Thomas

London-based photographer Dan Tobin Smith, in collaboration with set designer and art director Rachel Thomas, captures the silhouetted profile of a woman in multicolored layers. The creatively dreamy works in this series titled Paper Profiles appear both illustrative and sculptural. While some may speculate that the image is digitally rendered, it is in fact made entirely by hand, as it is the creative duo’s signature style to fully construct the scene and simply photograph it.
By combining their areas of expertise and their variations in the way they work, the two artists are able to produce beautifully lit still life portraits. While Thomas prefers to work with a precisely calculated plan for her sets, Smith’s photography is driven by the spontaneity of light. It is especially impressive that Thomas has maintained the sharp profile of the woman without shadows creeping our of the contours of the figure. Even in the white profiles, there is a distinction between each layer. The careful placement of each sheet of layering is equally note-worthy.

This is just beautiful
