The Extraordinary Life of Nails (15 pics)


Who knew nails could be so dramatic? Using very ordinary objects from his toolbox, photographer Andrei Nikolaev of Russia manipulates nails to create highly imaginative scenes.

Nikolaev's pieces remind us of Czech photographer Vlad Artazov's work which we featured, here at theMET, about a year ago.
