Based in Brooklyn, New York, graphic designer Scott Reinhard combines vintage maps with elevation data to create stunning pieces of art. Reinhard uses a chromogenic process to create each print, which takes traditional color photography development and integrates 3-dimensional data with paper maps for a result that is so visually appealing, you'll be tempted to reach out and feel what looks like 3D texture. The process brings the maps to life, creating a 2D print that is vibrant and detailed giving you a unique work of art that blends history and modern technology. In addition to the topographic maps, Reinhard creates compelling digitally rendered maps and has even adopted his technique to the surface of the moon.
