This is how Richard Learoyd works: "Utilizing a distinct photographic method he creates life sized images inside a specifically built camera. This construction captures the image without any interposing film negative, transparency or intermediate material. Instead the apparatus of light is directly focussed by the camera and translated onto a sheet of positive photographic paper. With no means of reproduction, once created, ultimately every image is entirely unique in its existence." From Union Gallery.
Agnes Montgomery's record cover for Panda Bear was featured at Sleevage. She's actually done a number of covers, all of which thrive on visual complexity and the handmade aesthetic of pre-Photoshop collage.
