3-D Photo Sculpture by Gwong Osang
GWONG OSANG IS A KOREAN SCULPTOR WHO IS MAKING WAVES IN THE PHOTOGRAPHY WORLD. Yep, in photography. His recent sculptures involve the act of actually building the object he is photographing from hundreds of photographs he has taken of the subject. Osang’s original intent was to make light sculpture, as opposed to the traditonal methods of sculpture which often creates objects that are heavy. While Osang maintains that he is a sculptor first, it was the photography world who showed interest in these new and compelling works.
