Definitely check out his portfolio. I l-o-v-e the scratched drawings on his photographs like WHOA! Maybe I’ll just have to try doing some myself. This concept could also be utilized as a more creative way to deface old pictures of ex-boyfriends then your standard face scribble…just sayin’.

August’s Photojojo possible. (Really)
We love Josh Poehlein’s photography portfolios, “Unstill Lives,” and “Ghosts” because they don’t show us everything.
Wait, what? Sure, photography’s all about revelation. But sometimes the best photographs are of the things you can’t see.
Poehlein takes this one step further by taking one step back. Let us explain: he scratches off the emulsion from his prints in order to add another image, often of what you’d imagine would be in the photo but isn’t. A stream of water from a dry showerhead, birds in an empty nest, a giant boat in the distance of a still lake.
The results are even more awesome if you can draw. Which we can’t. Still, we had fun making our own scratch-n-see works of art. And they turned out pretty great, if a little amateur next to Poehlein’s genius. (That’s our monster on Coit Tower, in case you couldn’t tell by the, ahem, difference in skill.)
