Drawing with knives, the very interesting portfolio of Jayne Helliwell

I recently saw Zana Briski’s amazing documentary Born into Brothels, which won the 2005 Academy Award for best documentary. Pictured above is a photo of one of the amazingly talented students Zana taught to in Calcutta’s red light district. After this documentary, Zana went on to found Kids with Cameras, whose purpose is to give hope to under-priviledged children through art. I think this amazing movie and this fantastic project deserve all the exposure it can get, hence why I’m posting this today.

Toko started in The Netherlands and is now based out of Sydney. These shots are from an annual report they designed. Here’s the description – [Client]: we don’t want an ordinary report! Can you make it more arty? So we did, literally. We turned the graphs into works of art. Every page displays a visual which can be read as a graph or seen as a work of art. Some of the graphs were also presented on actual canvas.
