A couple of months ago I told you about a senior citizen bus travel provider who didn’t seem too aware of the impression it might leave to typographically abstract the two diacritic dots in his family name to create a company logo.

With his rock star dalliances and a desire to marry high-art style and low-brow subjects, Cubitt sits at the photographic edge.

(Eyemazing Journal)

“Shock photographer” Clayton Cubitt, a.k.a. Siege, is known for his radical visual concepts that travel between fashion and porn.

Together with generative artist Tom Carden, he created an eye-popping black and white series using an interesting technical approach: they wrote a sofware that generates particle simulations with gravitational restraints and merged the results into the fashion shots. Interesting: They first created the “particle paintings”, then the portraits.

The powerful visuals were published in MetroPop Magazine.
