Reconstructed Works

Pep Ventosa‘s style of deconstructing and reconstructing photographic images to create new mosaic-like works is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. His process involves taking as many as 101 photographs of a single subject and then piecing them together like a jigsaw puzzle, creating an entirely new visual experience. I am in love with the image of La Pedrera in Barcelona – I think Antoni Gaudí would be proud.

  6. So gorgeous. It gives the feeling that the images are made of pixels.

    These are so beautiful! I love deconstructed they are while still seemingly put together. There’s an interesting dynamic in each of these photographs between dark and light.

    These are lovely images. David Hockney was doing this stuff in the old days, you should check them out if you like this, i’m sure he was an inspiration Ventosa… X

  13. They look beautiful! In any other setting this would count as imperfect, but somehow imperfect is more interesting 🙂 Also nice way to illustrate how fleeting a moment is, when even buildings look different from one minute to another.

    And I was sure I recognised the second photo, turns out it was taken in San Sebastian which I visited briefly a few years ago!

    These are quite beautiful. Not to take anything away from them but David Hockney did this with photographs in the 80s. (search David Hockney photographs).
