Nope, this isn't a photograph: it's a paper collage by British artist Lucy Williams. A book of her work, published by Roads, came out in March.

Williams renders everything from famous works by Mies van der Rohe to less notable spaces, like a dining hall, with her intricate layers. She creates a blueprint of the space from a photo, and then working from back to front, layers paper, wool, gravel, and cotton until the space reveals itself.
