Again months have past. So if you go to this blog you
always see the same news, sorry. Now I have lots of things to say about
scannography but don't give myself enough time to do so. But first I want to
present you two new artists I added on our main site.
Cosgrove has been added in july. Her scanns are dark but very poetic in the
same time. She is a student in graphic design and her art reflects a sensible
view of things and nature.
Shumakova, has been added in september. She is a russian photographer and
teaches theory and history of Art at the Chelyabinsk State University. Her
images play with abstraction, textures, colors and movements due to the
scanner. The result is original and strong and motivating.
I must admit I'm proud to present such talented people on my website and
that's what keeps me going on. This and the success of the site where more and
more visitors get infos…
I'll try to give some other news here next week. Keep in touch

I'm sorry I didn't post anything here since a few months. In the mean time
two new artists have appeared on the main site.
I just give you their names here. Please go the site and take a look, there are
some great images there.
The first was Kelly Keltos who
plays with fragmented images and movement while scanning :
The second is Robert Haspel, who
uses transparency in a very subtle manner.
I hope to give news more often in the future.

Sonja Beskin-Mesher is our new member on the scannography
site. Sonja is a complete artist : painting, drawing, writing. She
a serie of scanns with dolls for theme. She says : “Dolls have been used in
role play in childhood and in the adult world for centuries. Research has
proved that inanimate objects still provoke feeling and reaction.”
Her images are strong and yet pleasant to look at. I hope you'll enjoy as
much as I did.

Our new fellow artist on our main site presents very strange composition.
She seems to like subtle moods that gives a kind of thrill to the viewer.
Playing with toys and plastic objects, she composes pictures that seem to be
innocent, but what is behind all this ? Take a look and make your own opinion

Richards is a young british artist who plays with faces, flower and
Emily, in a style that comes close to Liz Atkins (another british
scannographer), is creating superb portraits with strong color moods and she
also uses the movements in her creations.
A kind of sweet and sometimes dark nostalgia emanates from her images, and she
is touching directly our feelings.
Strange and beautiful in the same time, her works have to be seen…

Furquim is a scannographer playing with object and
In a similar way to his fellow countrywoman, Hercilia Lopes, Ronis creates
superb images on basse of strange objects and things he founds around him.
He is very active and seems to search new ways to express himself. The world
around him is like an open book in which he picks and rearrange. Take a look at
his page and discover his fine arts.

Page is offering us beautiful colors and harmonies in her still life
captures. Beauty seems to be the main purpose here, added to a great sense of
color harmonies and textures. It's classical and original in the same
Her flowers are completed with symbolic elements that give a special charm and
romantic mood to her creations. Take a look, it's really superb.

Our new artist, Danilo
D'Alessio, didn't propose much pictures but his method is a wonderfull one
This method, as he says, a tribute to Tristan Tzara (the Dada movement), is
interesting because you know surprises will emerge. Take a look on his page to
see it explained there. Some of the images (we would like to see a few more in
fact) are just strange and superb.
Have fun and don't forget to spread the word.

Beautiful new pictures on the site.
Yanikova proposes beautiful scannography compositions. There is something
fresh and original in her works. She touches a few domains and themes, mixing
objects, flowers, and all sorts of elements to create her own vision of things.
There is a very poetic mood in her creations and I hope you will like them as I

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

We are still alive ! I was much too busy in the last months but
scannography;org is stll alive (and kicking ?!) Today I present you Marie-Jo Fulton. She

As I'm very busy these days I would appreciate if any amongst the readers of

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
The best way to understand what I mean is to check on her page…

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

click and much more.

is playing with very simple yet attractive compositions with marbles and
leaves. I hope you like the quality of her images and the abstract movements
