A beautiful blend of cartography and portraiture if I ever saw one, from My Modern Met.
Paper maps aren’t as common as they used to be, since the advent of various apps and GPS systems we find ourselves relying on more and more during our travels. While this may be the case, artist Ed Fairburn appreciates the craft of cartography and is working to repurpose physical maps as he expands his portfolio. Fairburn combines landscapes with the human figure by expressively exercising his eye for detail and appreciation for natural beauty. “The idea of harmonizing a portrait with a map suggests that we are a product of the landscape,” the creative explains.
