another artist i just found,
21 year old Phil Defer.
He doesn't necesarily consider himself an "artist," as he is just trying to finish studying refined cabinet-making in paris.
he does, as a hobby, make these reliefs, a 2D photo but cut-out 50-60 layers creating an optic into the depth of magazine pages.
it says it takes him at least 15 hours, and the most difficult part isn't the minute cutting details but choosing the picture itself.
