Last year Luke Evans was only in hist first year studying photography at Kingston University when he and his partner-in-crime Josh Lake confounded the internet with their haunting microscopic images of partially digested photographic film. They’d swallowed small pieces of 35mm and let their digestive systems go to work before scanning the egested strip with an electron microscope and recording the results, which looked incredible. Needless to say, Luke’s got a taste for unorthodox photographic processes and generally doing things the hard way.
One year on Luke’s produced this stunning new series of images that play with perspective in mind-bending, eye-deceiving ways. Though your eyes tell you you’re looking at vast landscapes and rocky outcrops of coastline, what you’re in fact seeing are miniature sets created on Luke’s kitchen table, constructed from sand, smoke, excellent timing and visual trickery. Though we’re desperate to know how he does it, we also think it might ruin the magic, so for now let Luke’s images captivate you with their mystery and charm you with their deception.
