Vic Muniz is a Cool Guy

A few months ago I was photographing the interiors of a home that contained some wonderful pieces of art. The one piece that really struck me though was a HUGE 5' x 7' photograph by Vic Muniz. At first glance I thought the piece was a painting...

But a closer inspection reveals that the work is actually a photograph and the scene is made entirely of junk...

In addition to checking out Vic's other fabulous work on his website, you absolutely must see WASTE LAND - the 2010 Oscar nominated documentary about the making of his "Pictures of Garbage" series (but it's about so much more than that)...
