Depression era photographs recreated using thousands of upturned crayons

We’ve all seen the crayon art made from melting wax into different shapes. It’s a fun DIY project that almost anyone can do, regardless of your artistic skills (of course, there are some beautifully artistic examples, as well).

But Christian Faur takes crayon art to a whole new level, creating art that resembles pointillism. His ‘The Land Surveyors’ collection and his portrait series are based on photographs from the Great Depression, serving as a reference to the current economic and social crisis.

Each image is created using hundreds of different colored crayons to breathe new life into these once black and white photographs of the powerful and powerless in empty, bleak landscapes.
