Paper can be used to create anything and everything depending on how creative you are willing to get. Artist Jo Chorny, also known as peaceofpaper1 on Instagram, hand cuts paper animals using a scalpel.
Chorny’s work is extraordinarily detailed and precise, making you forget you are looking at paper at all! Once finished with a particular hand cut paper animal Chorny has a preferred method of photographing it.
Chorny writes, “My favourite way of photographing my papercuts is to hold them against the sky; I love the dramatic effect this gives, and the variation of colours and textures in the sky as a backdrop. Plus this way you can see my intricate cutting more clearly.”
Chorny adds, “I also like the shadows that my pieces cast. I normally set them in a box frame, so the shadow appears on the back giving the papercut a great 3-D effect.”
