Travel to the Arctic and back just from kitchen table

The Forge, series of photographer Luke Evans looks like Nordic landscapes or Arctic weather phenomenon, but they were shot on his kitchen table.

Creativity knows no boundary. Luke Evans, a three-year course in graphic design and photography at London’s University of Westminster, shot abstract landscapes in miniature from common household materials. On his kitchen table Luke Evans creates with salt, glycerine smoke, brick, shaving foam, paint, cling film and paper arctic and moon like landscapes. Amazing!
 
“This one (right) was actually made from a miniature fragment of brick while another image of a wave crashing against a different rock was formed using salt, a brick and shaving foam,” says Luke.

“I was holding a cup of salt in my right hand to throw at the rock and, at the same time, waving fog over the set with my left hand so it was very difficult to do both and press the camera shutter all in sync,” Luke said. “It took weeks to get it just right and I must have taken 600 frames but I am delighted with the result because it is always fools people.” Scroll to see more
