Lovely Graphite Sketches Show What Lies Outside The Frames Of Vintage Photos

Artist Lauren King brings a new sense of life into the landscapes featured in vintage photos by imagining the scenery that extends beyond its white frames.

King, whose style is similar to this piece of work we featured earlier, extends the landscape beyond the frame by sketching scenes in graphite, presumably to match the black and white tones in the vintage photos.

Her work blends with the photos rather seamlessly—she matches the rocks, trees and buildings in the original photos in her drawings, making it seem like her graphite drawings were part of the original photos all along.

Take a look at King’s impressive work below.
