Jason LaFerrera’s Wildlife Map Collages

Jason LaFerrera: Osprey

Jason LaFerrera makes images of wildlife out of collages out of old maps. From Jason’s artist statement: “The textures and contours of old maps are fascinating, even the tattered and stained parts. In this series, I digitally manipulate cartographic materials to create fauna, mostly birds, in poses reminiscent of field guides from a similarly early era of publication. The patterns of forests and shores often become an animal’s feathers or fur, while the rings of topography often trace out wings or antlers.” Via Boing Boing.
