It's been a while since I last wrote here !
A shame because I presented Giang Nguyen Hoang
on the main scannography site last month. And he is an exceptionnel
scannographer. Dark, strange, intriguing, theses images are really appealing. I
invite you to visit his page where he mixes radiographies with scannographies.
And I implore you (!!) to scroll down his page till the bottom, you have a
little surprise at the end that will show another side of the possibilities of
this medium and of Giang's skills.

Jan O'Highway seems to be almost a classic scannographer…
…but the way she lays her compositions on the flatbed scanner is rather
original. In a way, she is telling us stories. She uses frames to show images
within the main frame.
Like in comics she plays with the juxtaposition between things to create
emotions. Blur, harsh colors, nice compositions do the rest. Take a look on her

It's been a while since my last post. I'm sorry about this.
Our new artist on the site is an english photographer called Clare West. Her
images can seem very classic but in the same time there is a very special
flavour in them. A kind of nostalgia, something we find in the early
photographies of the 19th century. Textures, colors, mood, everything seems to
be diluted by the time machine !
I'm glad to count her amongst us !
Enjoy and leave some comments please…

The last artist of the year is young artist scanning paper pieces to
create some kind of abstract patterns.
You have to discover her works on our page devoted to
her. It's real all about composing, playing with colors, transparency and
light. It's perfectly mastered and a pleasure for the eyes. Her creations are
as close to abstract paintings (like Klee or Mondrian) as to scannography. But
that's what makes our art so interesting : it has no limits except

Our new artist from London is a young lady who will surprise
Animating her scanns and playing with her painted portraits, that's what Lil
Ashton is dealing with.
And the results are surprising. Not only are this portraits intriguing but
they also move you as they move themselves. These are like cries from outside
world or inner feelings. In the same time there is a lot of humor and fun in

Our september artist is a french painter, photographer, musician AND
scannographer : Jean-Louis
His work is full of spirit, mood and strange ambiances. This artist is a
complete talented one, managing various medias, he mixes his talents as well as
The scanns he presentes us areof two kinds: raw scanns where he shows some
natural and weird beauties, and, on the other hand, worked out montages he does
from the initial raw scanns. It's strange how some of them don't look as scanns
anymore. Jean-Louis has pushed the possibilities a bit further and this is one
more good thing… You can also see more of his works on his own site.

I had not much time in the last weeks but here we go again… I have to
present you 2 new artists : one for july and one for august. A great summer in
for july, is a german artist who is fascinated by the possibilities of the
flatbed scanner. He is presently publishing the first german book about
scannography at Nardelli publishing.
Castelo, for august, is a spanish artist who teaches photography at the
Fine Arts University in Madrid. His images are like nothing comparable, between
scientific views and graphic design.
Please leave comments about these two interesting guys…

Our new artist is someone who must like fairy
…and nature of course like most of us do, I'm pretty sure. Robert Fleming
works out backgrounds for his scanns and gives them a very special mood. One
can just imagine trolls or elfes appearing in some part of the images. Superb
color arrangements, great depth of fields and wonderfull compositions make of
his images, something classical in a way, yet very unique.
And looking at his images, I can also imagine (easily) that he must like
fishing, but that may be another story…
And you may discover it on his

A strange name for a strange artist. Don't miss her, she
shows dark images, a complete different mood in scanner Art. Evilsabeth
Schmitz-Garcia tries to express her sentiments, feelings through with the
scanner and the way this device captures faces, ambiances and colors. Yes it's
dark and uncomfortable but isn't life like this sometimes (I hope not too often
Here is what she says herself about her work : "I tried to represent
Borderline Personality Disorder symptoms with photographies. I decides to use
scannographies instead of photographies because the pictures I took with my
scanner gave me the look I wanted, like "someone trapped inside a dark place",
a dark place wich could be a Borderline's mind."
And if you want to see more of her work she shows great photos on her Flick'r page…

Beautifull scanns to discover on our site. Debb is mixing fragile elements into
powerfull and appealing images. Debb plays with the feelings she provokes and
with the magic of interference between opposites symbols. The end and beginning
of life mixed in a strange vision… And she sure knows how to play with light
and colors with a scanner…

things she scanns !!
Janet is a long time member of our site. She sent me beautiful images that I
recently added to her page. I've not much more to say that : go and take a look,

next two weeks you certainly will get an answer.
In the mean time, enjoy the wonderfull images she shares on her page. The paintings
seem alive and liquid, it's a very organic sensation, and her colors are just
bursting to our eyes. You can also take a look on her personal website.

The artist for this month is finally on the site.
His name : Stewart Nelson. His work is mainly based on leaves and fronds and
bright colors. Stewart doesn't hesitate to alter the natural colors to arrive
at the result he wants. His images are strong, simple and appealing. Hs
compositions focus mostly on one main element and that gives strength to the

Take a look at his
page to see his Art is such a personal one and it has some magic in it. His
personal universe grows with his practice of scanner painting, his mixes of
types, colors, forms produces a very graphical result.

Tamara Stoneburner is a
calligrapher and illustrator, she discovered the magic of scannography
recently. Tamara's work isn't the most astonishing but her pictures
show what scannography can be for many amongst us : the perfect media to
"pick up on intricate details of objects that are not noticed by the naked
eye" Her pictures are perfect in light, sharpness and colors. She seems to
see her work more like a testimony for what she sees around her, then as an
artistic form of imaging. She is also one of the rare persons that scans
insects and other little creatures, and, I must admit, this makes me feel less
