Much better than I expected, Christo should sue.

Those are lovely. I particularly like the organic shapes that bamboo scaffolding allows. To my American eyes those look incredibly unsafe; I mean look, it's twisting into collapse already! But in fact a lot of the world uses bamboo scaffolding and it works pretty well.

These are great. The patterns are mesmerizing.

I subscribed to their RSS a long time ago. Sadly, it hasn't been updated since December 2015, which is really too bad because the images are fantastic.

Yay grids, I love grids. I would climb on these even though I am not a climby person.

I bought a zine last year that was all photos of bamboo scaffolding and had a great conversation with the person who made it that was basically like, "Grids! Grids are great. I love grids. Let's be friends."

I love this tumblr, thanks.

Is the Crimson Permanent Assurance in there?

This is mine! Glad you're enjoying it. The blog stalled due to other commitments but I'm in the very early stages of producing a beautiful Scaffoldage book that will be filled with images like these. Incredibly excited.

A book, neat! How do you clear copyright on images like this? I imagine it's a laborious process of contacting every single photographer? How do you even find them?
