Street artists like Banksy and Space Invader have been playing with city dwellers for years, placing their work strategically for maximum impact. In fact, artists around the globe are constantly integrating their artwork into the landscape in unexpected ways. Working in large and small scale, the techniques and scope of work differ, but one thing they all have in common is their clever use of space.
These tiny little feet are so cute! In the series Stone Footprints, Scottish photographer Iain Blake places these cheerful stones in fun footprint patterns and paths across his compositions. By adding just five tiny stone "toes" to a larger stone, the inanimate objects become alive with emotion and personality. The playful collection evokes a sense of family and community, sparking a desire to know more about those feet that Blake photographs–about where they have been and where they are going.
Whether the footprints create a moving pathway or form a motionless circle, Blake is able to convey a unique narrative with each strong composition. The next time I'm walking along the beach, I hope I come across a collection of these adorable little feet!
