These strangely captivating images are the photomontage project of Paris based photographer Seb Janiak. Named Minessis, which is a Greek word for imitation. To create each artwork Janiak scours antique stores and taxidermist shops to find examples of wings which he then photographs at extremely high resolution. The pieces are digitally edited and pieced together into flower-like forms (a sort of meta mimic of a mimic) which are then output as chromogenic prints measuring nearly 6 feet square. The Patternbank team are loving the beautiful irregular textures and colour patterns created in these amazing art pieces. See more of Seb Janiak’s inspirational work here.
