Philip Karlberg: Pin Art

Swedish photographer Philip Karlberg used clever lighting and carefully arranged wooden pins to create a series of unique celebrity portraits for Plaza Magazine.  "A couple of months ago I came up with an idea I have had in mind for years" he says, "I just didn't know what I could use it for. But then I did a test with sunglasses, and it really turned out great. So I sent an image with the test to Plaza Magazine, and a week later I started shooting. It was a real challenge to recreate the famous faces with their iconic sunglasses. It took me 6 days to shoot the 6 faces, and around 1200 sticks were used.
