Photographer: Andrea Galvani

In her series Death of an Image, photographer Andrea Galvani attempts to cross a boundary. Through each image there is a desperate need to cancel something out in order to rebuild it. Objects are cleverly placed within the shot to create a precise perspective, thus cloaking and transforming the subjects. In the image below, the stark black balloons are carefully placed with accurately calculated string lengths to create a visible center point that the dots radiate from. Beyond the conceptual explanation, these images are just stunning. The final image is separate from the collection, but how could I resist an image of cats.
