Crayon photography: Christian Faur

On my last visit to New York city I visited Kim Foster Gallery and saw this Christian Faur exhibition that I found playful, beautiful and full of craftmanship. 
Faur explores the power of the pixel in photography by substituting them by crayons. The result are photographies that end up being sculptures, perhaps giving a step back from the so desired super HD quality photography. I'd love to grab a piece of paper and just rub it in front of one of these and see what happens. For your beautiful trained-to-complete-the-image brain: The art of Christian Faur.
