Mark Schatz was my first photography professor at San Jacinto college in Houston. When I took his class I remember he was into photographing sculptural work. The work shown below is his recent work. He has been making these environments out of cardboard, wood, polystyrene foam and different mixed media.
It is really interesting the way he manipulates the cardboard using layers and layers to create an environment. I like how he used recycled cardboard for the cityscape it gives it a new element. When I first saw these it made me think of our surroundings and how small we are in comparison to the world. http://www.markschatz.com/perscart.html
