Two Awesome & Creative Ways to Turn Your Photos into Sculpture

Paint and clay are some artist’s medium of choice. Yours? Photos!

Artists Nerhol and Michael Mapes collaged photos into sculptural masterpieces that’ll inspire you to try something similar with your own photos!

Nerhol (duo Ryuta and Yoshihisa) makes 3D paper-cut portraits. They start by shooting lots of portraits of one person in three minutes.

After printing and piling the photos into a stack, they cut through the stack to reveal all of the layers of photos below for a three-dimensional image.

Michael Mapes’ take on photo sculptures involves cutting up a single image and putting it back together like a mosaic.

The twist is that each piece of the photo is different — some are cut into circles, squares, put into bottles or under magnifiers. The final image looks like a rad display that you might see at a museum.

Get inspired by checking out these two projects below.
