I came across these beautiful photographs by Romanian artist Ion Zupcu, now living in Hopewell Junction, NY. This series titled Works on Paper was initially inspired by his daughter’s paper models for her architecture studies. Zupcu started photographing very small, folded and bent pieces of paper, most barely extending one inch across, using a Hasselblad camera. He enlarges the square-format prints to 15 inches squared, playing with the light and shadows, as well as exposure, creating a dramatic abstract effect. Lovely.
More of Ion Zupcu’s work can be seen on his site, and more of his Works on Paper series can be seen at Drooel and Gallery 339.
