The photographs that make up the Form exhibition stand at 1600mm × 1000mm and are, essentially, back-lit transparent images, mounted on very thin electric paper. A dark sheet of glass then frames the image creating, in effect, a very thin lightbox. The visual effects were all created in-camera and are down to a range of “lights and filtration”, says Tomlinson.

Form (produced with support from Swarovski and @radical media) will run in Paris until April 12

Bulldog clips: the new fingers?

On the left, last year’s preferred design photo style (by Michalt Slawek) looks as though it may have been ousted by a new preference for the bull dog clip
Just over a year ago we posted on the trend for designers to shoot their work as if held up in front of their faces – or at least their friends’ faces. Now, it seems, those familiar fingers are being replaced by the humble bulldog clip as design’s photography style du jour…
