Fifty shades of grey

This is one of the recurring themes in my photography: taking a picture from a piece of art and turning it into something that is different, yet somehow artistic in itself. This is a close up of a huge paper sculpture by Machteld Wijlacker, exhibited at the Zwolle Museum. The shapes and the various shades of grey make the shot look like a modern painting.
