Abnormal Beauty - Fotoscans by Steve Poxon

Young British artist and photographer Steve Poxon has created a genius body of work in experimental fashion which emulates the early photogram process. The images you see below are highly detailed scans of “objects of interest”. The results are visually intriguing, achieving both a patternistic and graphic composite.

The objects are scanned at a high resolution preserving a density of detail that is beyond the limits of the human eye. This places them almost into a hyper reality where the viewer feels like they can almost reach out and touch them. The verisimilitude of the images coupled with the choice of objects creates a confusing situation for the viewer; do they really want to examine these objects up close or do they want to relish in the detail of the disgusting and grotesque? - says Steve.
