Garland of Names

February 28th, 2011

These photographs by Maria Ikonomopoulou are absolutely breathtaking! Originally for an exhibit in 2006, the shapes are actually names cut from paper. I adore the simulated waterfall effect and the concept of being clothed in names of loved ones is brilliant.

This idea would make for a beautiful backdrop for an alter at a wedding or even a photo booth at a birthday party!
