Pop-Up Book Brings Personal Photos To Life [Pics]
Award-winning artist Colette Fu uses a unique medium to document life in China’s Yunnan Province.
Colette Fu makes pop-up books. But not the kind that perhaps most people are used to.
A trained photographer who was raised by a mechanical engineer, Fu has a somewhat unique background that has inspired her to add pop-up effects to her photo books, which document life in China. She likens the construction of her three dimensional books to assembling a puzzle, with extra care given to backgrounds and outstretched limbs for just the right sense of perspective.
Fu’s most recent collection, “We Are Tiger Dragon People,” features shots taken during her three years in China’s Yunnan Province. Interestingly, each set was taken over the course of a single day and tells a unique story of local culture.
