There are some amazing and unusual landscapes on the walls of our cities… They are skies and seas of paper. We can see them in macro photographs of disfigured advertising posters. In this photogallery I have gathered some of the macro images I took walking along the streets of different cities, from outdoor billboards. The pictures are part of LaceR/Actions”, a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks, crevices, scratches and urban and industrial signs and tokens (I’ve collected so far more than 100.000 photos…).
Transferred on canvases, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles, re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the images of torn and disfigured posters and natural cracks, corrosions and scratches give new meanings and expressions to paper lacerations and matters decompositions. They’re not paintings…They’re Lacer/actions!

They are all great shots but of the three I really like the first. At first it appears to be the simplest image but it actually has a lot to absorb. Cheers, best wishes, Mr C 🙂
Thank you so much Mr C! Yes, I like it me too. And you’re right. Its structure is quite particular (and all is gathered in a few centimeters).
