The vibrant and eye-catching paper artworks by a Paris-based designer combine two of my great loves: paper and colors!
No matter how high-tech the photography and art world gets, I think these advancements just won’t replace paper. I’m sure many will agree with me that aside from physical books, print magazines, and printed photos, sketchbooks and various types of specialty paper will always be around and never go out of use, especially since creative minds are always thinking of ways to play around them!
Case in point? Artworks like the ones made by Maud Vantours, a Paris-based designer who makes amazing patterns and 3D sculptures in various eye-catching colors. I particularly love how she cuts through layers upon layers of paper in different colors, creating patterns and sculptures that draw your eyes through clever use of colors and textures.
While I have no doubts that something like it can be done digitally, I just find it even more impressive that Maud does it painstakingly by hand, and using something as simple as paper — which is also her favorite medium, I later found out!

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential photography books ever, "Ballet" by the photographer, art director, and graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch.

For this article, I took a series of photos at the Swing Crash Festival in my city, Como, held in June 2015.
