Steve Mills Illustrates Newspapers as Accurately as Photographs

Steve Mills once again produces photoreal images that make people question why digital SLRs were even invented. In this particular series, Mills uses newspapers in its various forms as muses. He’s rendered them still bound with string, on book shelves and wrapped inside plastic bags, and each one of these stunning masterpieces never betrays the illusion of real-life. It’s almost ridiculous to think that Mills wrote out all the fine print found within articles for this hyperreal collection, but it’s this level of dedication that makes Mills an artist truly without peers.

Steve Mills’ periodical of choice for this series was The Wall Street Journal. I can say without hesitation that I never thought I’d see still life paintings of business newspapers and be completely blown away by its artistic brilliance.
