Absolutely beautiful. I bought this as a gift for a friend earlier this year. I loved it so much, I bought another for myself. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous art!

I love it. So happy with my prints. Wish my husband would let me buy more of them
A little world made of paper
I make miniature worlds out of paper. I ink up a paper called Yupo paper, cut it into layers and set inside a miniature theater. I play with the lighting, and adjust the elements and then photograph the scenes. I often take 50 or more photos to get the one I am looking for.
I discovered working in this way through making tunnel books. They are a Victorian invention that a member of the Movable Book Society introduced me to as a teen. I made dozens, and began making dioramas too with cams, levers and light.
After the birth of my daughter I thought it would be fun to make some again and explained my idea to my husband. He surprised me with a miniature theater for Christmas! It was perfect. I have been making the photographs I sell here at Theater Clouds now for the last 3 years in this way. I have also made some into permanent pieces, some into illustrations for books, and some into installations. And... soon I hope some very rudimentary animations.
To see works in progress, keep in touch through my blog, website and Facebook page - Theater Clouds.
Keep an eye open for my books too! www.ellymackay.ca
