20 year-old Hungarian student David Nemcsik emailed me with some of his work and I liked these the most, but don't let that detract from some of his other projects, like the Levitation Project, apparently featured by Samsung, Discovery Channel, and more (is he really only 20?).
I like these a lot. They remind me of the first time I saw an image printed onto something unusual; I think it was Adrian Boot's portrait of the Eurythmics, printed on a large stone, and it sat in the office of the agency in London where I worked, back in 1990.
"I take portraits on 35mm film then develop them. After that I 'paint' black and white photo emulsion on the skateboard. After it dries it works just like a single photo paper. Then I put the film and the deck to the enlarger and develop the deck as a black white photo. After I dry them and pour some chemical on it to be sure to fix it; it is finished." - David Nemcsik.
