Post-It Notes Captured On a Macro Scale to Create Stunning Abstract Photographs

Post-It Notes Captured On a Macro Scale to Create Stunning Abstract Photographs

Canadian graphic designer and award-winning photographer Marianna Armata recently decided to create an interesting challenge for herself: create a series of abstract images using nothing but an all time favorite in stationery, the famed Post-It note and a dash of macro photography.

As you can see, these absolutely stunning compositions, whether abstract or dreamlike landscapes, are clever transformations of a quite simple product. She states on Bored Panda, "I spent a few weeks shooting yellow Post-It Notes on a macro scale. Trying very hard not to fall into the origami genre, I created compositions to highlight the paper itself rather than to use the pages to make something else." Her works have taken a simple medium along with a simple lighting setup and a mound of creativity to produce incredible results.
