These are so great. Photographer Derrick Lin has turned the every day into the fantastic and captured them on his iPhone.
“Working only with his iPhone, desk lighting, and a broad array of miniatures, Lin creates visual commentary on office life as well as recreations of popular artworks or scenes of escape,” writes Christopher Jobson on Colossal.
How about a shepherd and his flock trudging up a stack of journals? Or a mountaineer surveying the landscape from the rim of a coffee mug? The detail and imagination in these scenes is remarkable.
And lucky for us, the artist is capturing them permanently in print. His book, “Work, Figuratively Speaking: The Big Setbacks and Little Victories of Office Life” launches in October, published by Universe. This will make a perfect addition to any designer’s bookshelf, and a great gift for the office dwellers in your world.
