Paper Brings This Fictional Exploration Society to Life

The 100-year-old Discoverer’s Alliance has stepped into realms alien to man. It has gone to the farthest corners of space and the deepest chasms of the ocean. The Alliance’s bold explorers have gathered rare minerals and treasures from unknown worlds. That ticked your imagination a bit, didn’t it? You can thank Paper artist Owen Gildersleeve and photographer Benedict Morgan for bringing this fictional society to life. After gathering inspiration from various museums in London, the two originally had more than twenty image ideas for the series. They were able to trim it down to nine after much deliberation. This collection of paper art is amazing by itself, but what truly makes it special is that the creators even came up with a truly imaginative backstory.
