Photographer Uses Plastic Forks, Water Bottles, to Dress Models

By Hanssie on November 4th 2013

As creatives, we often look at the world around us for inspiration. Everyday, ordinary objects can be transformed into something beautiful and interesting in the hands of an artist.

In his “Plastic Fantastic” photo series, artist and photographer, TOMAAS wraps his models in everyday items such as bubble wrap, plastic forks, water bottle and trash bags to create visually stunning and creative images.

TOMAAS bought his first camera because he was fascinated with the sounds of the Hasselblad. As many photographers do, TOMAAS began practicing on his friends. After ma trip to Vietnam, where TOMAAS photographed the unique people and lands there in a way he had never produced before, he began thinking about becoming a full time photographer. He attended the International Center of Photography in New York and soon garnered attention for his work and began working for some of the most elite modeling agencies in New York.

The series below was inspired from another shoot he did called, “Eco-beauty,” using materials used in everyday life. The team had so much fun that they decided to do this project using only plastic objects. You can see more of TOMAAS’ recent work on his website and his online portfolio on Behance.
