Album and Postcards from Nowhere

These two images above, New Kitten and Shanghai are a sneak peak of Vik Muniz's new series, titled "Album and Postcards from Nowhere," of shredded collage work for his show from January 16 to March 4 in Hong Kong. The album consists of cityscapes or some cheerful postcard imagery where, similar to his work at the junkyard, the pictures are a collage of unusual materials (in this case, shredded vintage photographs and postcards).
These two images were my favorite that he did from the album; I love the attention to detail he uses to recreate the city skyline, and the cat in the other collage. He did a marvelous and impressive job creating something as beautiful as these two pieces with just old pieces of postcards.
