Dirk Dzimirsky is one talented guy. People are often surprised that his hyperrealistic drawings are not actual photographs. Although Dirk references photographs for his drawings, he uses the photos very loosely once the proportions have been determined. Each of his drawings make you want to stop and ponder what the person is thinking, as the emotion on their faces makes you forget that these are indeed drawings. You can see much more of Dirk’s work on his website or Facebook page.
While artist Eric Staller’s light drawings are beautiful in and of themselves, take into account that they were created in New York back in the 1970s using just a Nikon 35mm film camera, 4th of July sparklers and Christmas lights and you can’t help but be blown away. By day, Staller would walk around New York, studying the locations he felt would “articulate the particular choreography or architecture of light” that he wanted to express. At night, he would carefully position his camera on a tripod and, with the lens open for several minutes, he would purposefully move about urban spaces; outlining cars, streets and stairways and even forming magical-looking tunnels brought to life through his imagination.

Irving Penn (1917 – 2009) was an American photographer known for his portraiture and fashion photography. He was among the first photographers to pose subjects against a simple grey or white backdrop. Expanding his austere studio surroundings, Penn constructed a set of upright angled backdrops, to form a stark, acute corner.’ Wikipedia
