Matthew Albanese’s low-tech hyper-realism
“Incredible landscapes and amazing views in a beautifully designed book”.
There is more than meets the eye in Matthew Albanese’s captivating photographs: using everyday items such as spices, herbs and feathers, he creates hyper-realistic landscapes of the world.
This beautifully designed book brings together for the first time all the photographs in the Strange World series, including new work made especially for the publication. The book features an engaging essay by David Revere McFadden, behind-the-scenes images of the miniature worlds, and insightful text by the artist on his working process. In an age when digital technology reigns supreme, Matthew Albanese’s work is surprisingly handmade and low-tech — it is a paean to going back to basics and “making things”.
