Elle Hoverkamp in the magazines

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.

Sonja is playing with dolls

Sonja Beskin-Mesher is our new member on the scannography site. Sonja is a complete artist : painting, drawing, writing. She proposes 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.” 2013-08-01-14-29-24.jpg

Her images are strong and yet pleasant to look at. I hope you'll enjoy as much as I did. bound.jpg

A new artist on scannography.org: Emily Bree Richards

Emily Bree Richards is a young british artist who plays with faces, flower and emotions…
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…

Chad Kleitsch is amongst us since 4 years and his work is getting forward as a photographer and as a scannographer. In this video interview he explains what creating an image means for him. A really interesting interview, profound, sensitive and full of beauty…

Still life by Christine Page

Christine 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 time.
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.

Werner Abel's book

It's a superb object with a perfect layout and wonderful images.

Finally the book has passed frontiers. And it's worth having it in hand. Werner did a great job trying to explain what scannography is and how to practice it. Well the book is in german but it's worth having it in hand because it shows on paper what we all knew: the quality of the images.

Umschlag.indd

The publisher added a few artists (jeff Mihalyo, Patri Feher, Jaime Ruas, Hercilia Lopes and more) at the end of the book to give a larger view and opening to the world of Scan-Art. For those interested you can order the book here. It's really worth the price. And it needs support.

papers… by Izalia Roncallo

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 imagination…

The animated Lil Ashton

Our new artist from London is a young lady who will surprise you…
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 those images.

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

The first book about scannography

Nardelli Verlag publishes the first book completely devoted to the technic of scannography. And to the Art of Werner Abel.

You discovered Werner's work two months ago on scannography.org. You can now discover it in this book. It's in german but the images are universal !
Umschlag.indd

Really, this book ist not to flip, but to swing open - like a scanner or laptop. Read this book and you never will see the nature as before. You will explore the nature in a completely new way. Enjoy it! While walking with his dog through the nature, the author, the German artist, Werner Abel, reflected on itself by collecting all what he found in fauna and flora: flowers, blossoms, leaves, grains, fruits, vegetables. Arrived at home, he scanned the found pieces with a customary flatbed-scanner.

The results have been very surprisingly and fascinating. Abel was deeply impressed. He suddenly could see details which he never have seen before and which the human eye commonly does not register. Depth of focus, quasi 3-D, from the middle to the edge. No Digicam can do this…

Reading this book, regarding the wonderful subjects captured by the scanner you can explore the beauty of the nature in a wondersome matter. Enjoy totally new insights into the nature, look inside the flowers, leaves and things. Explore details as close-up which you just have let uncared heretofore. This book facilitates a new way of looking closely. Hints to arrange your found pieces on the scanner included. Extra-Service: Scanartists from all over the world are presenting their most beautiful, impressive and stunning subjects. What a book – surprisingly, precious, different.

Marsha Tudor's workflow

[Marsha|http://www.scannography.org/artists/Tudor-Marsha.html is participating on our site since a long time (well not that long as I created the site in april 2008).

She is now proposing a page where she explains her way of working. She gives lots of details, so this is an interesting page for newcomers to our media. It is also interesting as it allows to compare our own technics with hers. Don't miss it…

How many amongst us have managed to find a publisher ?

After a chat with Patri, I was just wondering if publishers, somewhere in this amazing world have had the courage to publish a book about scannography. I see that sometimes books use scannography for their image content (more and more when flowers or plants are concerned). I also see that sometimes books about new technics of capturing images or processing images, have a chapter that gives a place to our technic. But how many books are now devoted to scannography.
Being in France, I may miss lots of things that happen in the rest of the world, so if you can share your knowledge.
By the way, we have a page called "bibliography" on the site and it may need an update.

So please send me whatever book you know that is a real scannography book…

Robert Fleming: scannography like fairy tales

Our new artist is someone who must like fairy tales…


…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 own site
