For the December 2009 table of contents pages in Esquire, I created two paper dioramas. Each object is hand-cut from cardstock, folded and glued to a larger white board and photographed. The cloud and bird in the first image were dangling from clear string at the shoot.
I thought it'd make sense to treat the table of contents in this way because the December magazine was our Augmented-Reality issue. I wanted the diorama to represent a very simplified version of what A/R does, in the sense that the images essentially pop out from the magazine page.
