Scanography is one of our favourite photo techniques because of its simplicity and ability to tap into creativity. If you don’t know what scanography is, scanography is a technique where you can take photos using a scanner or a photocopy machine. All you have to do is get access to a scanner, plug it into a computer, arrange your photo subjects creatively and scan away.
Fine art scanography dates to 1968 and it is just as relevant today. We’ve gathered great scanography photos from 500px which we hope will inspire you to experiment with this process. Please share your results with us, upload photos to profile and post links in the comments below. Thanks!
