Lithuanian photographer and artist Tadao Cern has been working on a series of hilarious portraits entitled, ahem, Blow Job, that depicts individuals enduring gale-force winds directly to the face. Say goodbye to the next 15 minutes, he’s taken 100 portraits so far. And if you liked these, here’s a similar series by Jonathan Robert Willis from last year. (via behance)

Here we are at the 20th issue of Flickr Finds, where I cover my favorite photos seen over the past two weeks. Because of my deep love for photography this has been the longest running feature on Colossal, and while I don’t plan on stopping it, I’ve also been spending lots of time on photo sites like 500px and Instagram. There is a wealth of fantastic imagery on all of sites and I might start including photos from all of them in a more general ‘week in photography’ type series starting in future weeks. We’ll see!

New York artist Michael Mapes creates elaborate specimen boxes by dissecting photographs and then compartmentalizing individual fragments within plastic bags, glass vials, magnifiers, in gelatin capsules and on insect pins. The boxes exist in an uncanny area between photography and sculpture, functioning both as portraits and as fascinating scientific canvases that make you question the the logic behind the organization of each piece. See more of his work over at Parlor Gallery, and if you liked this also check out the work of David Adey. (via lost at e minor)

Photographer Lee Eunyeol constructs elaborate light installations that appear as if the night sky was flipped upside down with glowing stars and planets nested inside tall grass or between deep earthen cracks. Though Lee does not have a website I can quote his artist statement I received via email:

Starry night expresses private spaces given by night and various emotions that are not able to be defined and described in the space. I’ve chosen analogue type for the expression which attempts to install electric bulbs in an objet to be expressed using back space of night by taking advantage of huge studio. There are two spaces in photographs. One is a space before electric bulbs of familiar landscape are installed and the other is a space after electric bulbs expressed by dispersing personal emotion are installed. Unified light from these two spaces generates a mysterious landscape.

Eunyeol will be showing this series of photos at the Gana Art Space in Seoul starting this week. I want to thank @jealouqity for helping get in touch with the gallery for this post, and if you liked this, also check out the work of Barry Underwood.

Jon Duenas is a fashion, editorial, and fine art photographer out of Portland, Oregon. Mixed into his extensive portfolio are a number of stunning double exposure photographs that, as Bobby Solomon puts it, seem to show the “details of nature blooming through portraits of young women”. You can see a few more over at the Fox is Black, and on Duenas’ website. If you like these also check out the work of Florian Imgrund and Matt Wisniewski.
