Life at work in the office can seem like groundhog day as the same old routine bores you to death, but Derrick Lin has played around with everyday resources to capture a minutiae world of events. Using just his ordinary iPhone camera, the photographer sets his scenes up across notebooks, paper clips and coffee mugs featuring miniature figures. Either recreations of famous artworks or scenes of escape, Lin’s creative designs all feature something extraordinary from the seemingly mundane office setting.
Many of these photos are part of a collection in Work, Figuratively Speaking: The Big Setbacks and Little Victories of Office Life. Due to be published this autumn, Lin’s works can also be seen via his Instagram page.
