Jumping Off the Pages

I just love artist Thomas Allen’s photographs of cut up old pulp fiction books with scenes of intrigue and mystery. Inspired by a love of pop-up books, Allen delights in taking on different roles in creating his scenarios: “In addition to being a photographer, I play talent scout, casting director, stage manager, lighting supervisor, and film editor.”  Check out his book Uncovered at the Aperture Foundation.
