It's always good news to see scannography in the medias.
Elle Hoverkamp is not (until now) participating on our site, but she is
practicing scannography since the early years.
Recently magazines took interest in her work and some even took some to
create fabulous covers.
Take a look on
Ellen's website, it's always interesting.

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.

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 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…

leaves. I hope you like the quality of her images and the abstract movements

… a weird combination made great by Debb
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…
So please take a look at the complete page on the site and don't forget to
visit her own website

But not too heavily, otherwise she would crash all the deicate
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,
it's worth the few minutes. Thank you Janet for your fidelity.

A scannography contest on a Gardening site. A bit late to
present this but I wasn't aware of it earlier. Anyway, it's nice to see that
scannography becomes used by everyone. This contest is a good example of
"Gardening Gone Wild" is a blog
about gardens (did I figure that out by myself ?). They organize photo contests
regularly. October theme was scannography.
The contest results are presented here, and you will see
it's classical flower scanns but some very nice pictures amongst them.
Let's hope other scanography contests wil take place everywhere…

"When the market traders had left, there were discarded flowers left on the
road squashed into the ground, but still beautiful. I wanted to capture this
beauty and scanning was the best way to create such movement and action with a
This is how Richard Dawson
started scannography. This photographer and artist has since developped lots of
styles by using his scanner. I let you discover them on the site. Here a few
images to give you a first approach :

Our new artist on scannography.org,
Algis kemezys, is well-known photographer who creates scannographies since
years now.He explain his work :
"I called them PreRaphaelite because they follow the "rules" of those
mid-nineteenth century poets and painters. They have unconventional
compositions (unlike any flower arrangements I have ever seen in photos or
paintings); there are pyramidal groupings (stacking); there is of necessity
more light on one side of the image than the other, causing an unnatural
depiction of the subjects; and there is absolutely a great emphasis on shadow
and tone to let the colours fend for themselves and work within the structure
of the image."
His images are colored in a very special way, like no other. The strange
emanations coming out and slipping through the images, give a sense of
weirdness and a strength to Algis's creations. If you want to know more about
this artist, he gives a lot of informations on his own blog.

Yes I know, flowers, flowers, when it comes to scannography it
always comes to flowers.
But Roberta Bailey (she has her own
website here), brings the subject to a new level. At least to my eyes. She
plays with colors, transparencies, and lights without crashing the simplicity
of the elements she presents. Her creations are just perfect. The essence of
her body of work seems to be beauty, something that gets more and more lost in
Contemporary Art. That's maybe why we are not looked at as artists, but as some
bunch of amateurs playing with scanners !!!
Go and see
these images (on scannography.org) , I think you'll be amazed too
(especially if you like flowers as much as Modern Art, which I personnaly do,
being open minded is important these times).
I hope she will touch a large public and so help scannography get it's way

His passion for gardening and photography has lead him to scannography. This
seems to be a very common way amongst us, scannographers ! Al Gabor plays with
colors and forms but also with humor and sensuality !
A classic scannographer but his images are beautiful and a pleasure for the
eyes ! You can discover more of these on his
