We've all played around with paper when we were young. We folded them, colored them and even glued them together. Some people even take it to the next level and make origami. But Benja Harney has taken paper art into an even higher level. He is someone we can call a paper engineer.
Based in Sydney, Benja Harney taught himself anything and everything about the paper world. His artworks are so beautiful and complex that you wouldn’t think it was made of plain paper. He has engineered a number of high-end pop-up books and paper constructions for the past six years. His latest masterpiece is currently on display at the Queen Victoria Building.
Harney decorated the central dome of the building with colorful paper sculptures of flowers, butterflies, dragonflies and bees. Check it out!

Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.
