French artist Jean-Francois Rauzier invented and takes advantage of an interesting and intricate time-consuming process to produce his pieces. Despite their initial appearance of a detailed painting or drawing, each one of these pieces is a photograph of a sort. Or rather a collection of between 700 and 3,000+ photos, all captured, flattened, and stitched together by Jean-Francois. The detail of the artist’s work is immense. You can zoom in extremely close to find minuscule details in each section (make sure to do so on Rauzier’s website, it’s amazing.), sometimes finding surprising intricacies. Jean-Francois Rauzier states that no photograph comes close to capturing reality because it can only display one frame of reference and that his photographs come much closer to capturing a realistic image of what the subject actually appears to be from the perspective of human eyes. What do you think of his work? Does it achieve what he boldly states? Check it out below!
