Great Talks about Photo Realism: The Book That Brings Communities Together
Great Talks about Photo Realism by Bogdan Sasu is a book that promises to unveil the stories of some of the best international visualization artists in the industry. If you’ve ever wondered about the secrets behind creating photo-realistic images, you now have a chance to peek inside the great minds who have already captured the attention in the field.
Bogdan Sasu is an artist, 3D generalist and author living in Romania who has more than two decades experience in the creative arts. His interests range from drawing to chip carving, from paintings to mosaics and stained glass. In 2006, he started exploring the possibilities of replicating the reality inside a computer, so he found the challenges he needed in the realm of 3D.
Year after year, he would strive to improve his skills and expand his knowledge in the field, so, naturally, he wanted to learn from the best artists in the industry. One of the aims was to find the secret behind creating photo-realistic images.
This was the spark that ignited the conversations that followed with artists all over the world. And this was what marked the beginning of a most exhilarating and fortunate adventure into book publishing.
Essentially, Great Talks about Photo Realism is more than a book. It is a community of dedicated artists who can bend reality with their craft. It is about coming together so they can realize their full potential as artists and see where creativity can take them.
It’s a vibrant visual experience which exhibits some of the most famous and award-winning 3D artworks as much as it is an invitation inside the lives of these people (so, it’s scenes and behind-the-scenes, if you will).
