Using the crumpled up pieces of paper we would throw away to make art, photographer Brendan Austin creates a stunning paper artwork series that will blow your mind. Able to make something so realistic and beautifully crafted out of the most ordinary and mundane material, the paper artwork series blurs the lines between photography and nature to create a breathtaking final product.

The 'Paper Mountains' series is a set of printed images of the peaks and shadows of different mountains in the American West Coast, New Zealand and Iceland that have been worked and crumpled to achieve this unique effect. The stark imagery in the series looks like it is devoid of life to portray the photographer's message of how human nature has reached such bleak peaks.
