Hey Crew,

Angelo Musco's work is world renowned.

I stumbled on a behind the scenes video of how he made his underwater masterpiece

The video is here To get an idea of the size of the final piece, check out the second video on the blog.

Here's his website

Personally, this guy is easily one of my favorite artists

I like the imagery although is not really what I like most. I understand is more of a mixed "art" with all the postprocessing involved etc... than specifically photography. What really impresses me are the resources, printing, mounting, craftmanship etc... (not much to do with art but with management).

I love Bosch; his work is fascinating. Can stare at some of his pieces forever. Back in 77 I went to the Prada in Spain to see first hand. They wouldn't allow picture taking. Musco's work is a real craft that goes far beyond simple technical skill.

I have worked as an unpaid reviewer for the editing websites since 2002. Most all hardware and software is sent to me free of charge, however, in no way am I obligated to provide either positive or negative evaluations. Any suggestions I make regarding products are a result of my own, completely, personal opinions and experiences with said products.
