Magdalena Bors

A friend from work just showed me these amazing images, which are by Belgian-born photographer Magdalena Bors, who lives and work in Melbourne. 

These are from her 2008 Homelands series, which depicts household objects transformed into landscapes.  Apparently she does it all by hand, which is rather amazing!

 Her latest series, called The Seventh Day, is in a similar vein, with rooms transformed into Australian scenery, such as the Bungle Bungles and the Apostles.  This amazing one above, called Reef, is all made up of jigsaw puzzle pieces!  I love the colours, you really have to click and see it bigger to see the detail.

 Crocheters out there will appreciate Bungle Bungles, which depicts the iconic Australian Bungle Bungle Ranges in the Purnululu National Park, all in crochet. The Seventh Day will be exhibited from 21 May to 31 July at the Gippsland Art Gallery, Sale.
