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.

If your iPhone were a human (which it nearly is), he’d be a free-diving, BMX-stunting, elite parkour champ.
Every thrill-seeker needs a safety net, and his? It’s the Glif+.
It’s just like the Glif, an iPhone tripod mount that doubles as a stand, but it comes with an extra vertical support and a loop for hanging on your keychain.
Your iPhone will stay secure to your tripod in more extreme angles, like up in a tree or on a bike. Champ status, indeed!

Every year, a strange and wonderful phenomenon takes place. *Every* object around you transforms into a camera.
No kidding. One time, we saw a refrigerator take a picture of an egg. Then the egg snapped a picture of a bell pepper. Before the bell pepper could take a picture, someone ate it!
Let Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day redefine your idea of what a camera can be. It’s happening this year on April 29th!
From your own fist to a saltine cracker, we’ve rounded up astounding pinhole cameras with tips for your own camera creations.
You’ve tried prisms, sprinklers, eating *lots* of Skittles, but harnessing the sheer beauty of a rainbow has proven to be a challenge.

Friends get worried when they don’t see you with a camera in tow.
That never happens though because you can always be found with *at least* two. The perfect justification: Instaxgrams.
Kyle Steed’s Instaxgrams are portraits shot half on Instax and half on Instagram.
He starts by taking a photo with his Instax and then holding that print up in front of the same subject and shooting it with his phone.
You can try your own portraits, but don’t stop yourself there. Landscapes and still-lifes make excellent subjects, too.
The analog and digital sides of you will never have a tiff again!
TIP: This project works with *any* kind of camera. Just get a photo printed, and go back to the same spot.
p.s. Work with us! If you love photography, you’ll fit riiiiight in. Photojojo’s hiring a treasure hunter, a wordsmith and customer BFFs in San Francisco and afar.
