The photo series succinctly titled Origamis by Marc Fichou, a photographer based in Santa Monica, California, revolves around (surprise, surprise) origami papercrafts. Yet this isn't just a portrait project of the complex folding art form. Instead, it is about the images themselves.

Origamis by Marc Fichou is comprised of images that look as crumbled as the art medium can often be. Each figure is just shy of blending into its backdrop. As It's Nice That observes, it "plays in the dialogue between artist and viewer and how our own perceptions of surface, depth and space manifest themselves in our understanding of an artwork." What is not perceivable at first is that each origami figure is superimposed on the sheet of paper it is made from.
