Thomas Herbrich is an amazing photographer. This is one of my favourites from his gallery:
On his website, he describes how he put together each photo. For this picture, he photographed a thousand printed pages, reduced them to 6 cm in height and photocopied them. These pictures were then stuck on styrofoam sheets, and laid out as shown. He shot the wave and the person separately.
Isn't it lovely? The rest of his work is definitely worth checking out as well.
