SPONSORED: Portraiture by Gary Card Presented by Canon EOS M

We love this behind the scenes window into the work process of portrait sculptor, Gary Card. It’s a fascinating first-person perspective into how he uses multi-coloured plasticine to create his hauntingly surreal objects. Card has always been fascinated by the beauty, physicality and immediacy of plasticine. He also has a great love for classical sculpture, and has a long-held ambition to bring these two seemingly unrelated subjects together. For this project, Card has reinterpreted conventional portrait photography, creating vibrant, multi-coloured plasticine sculptures.

Creativity requires a constant search for inspiration; from the every day to the abstract. To mark the launch of the EOS M, Canon asked five unique talents – for their modern take on a traditional photographic style. Embarking on a creative journey to bring their ideas to life, each contributor produces an original piece of work, using their camera to capture the essence of the final creation. You can watch other videos capturing the work of Andy Torres, Gary Card, Clemens Poloczek and Sophie Beresiner here. For more information on the new Canon EOS M click here.
