Oakland-based artist Milena Korolczuk is generally known for her work in film and photography but she recently set her sights on a more maleable medium: Wonder Bread. Using blobs of compressed bread the artist created surprisingly faithful interpretations of historical figures, artists, and pop culture icons which she then carefully photographed. According to Raster gallery the series was born from Korolczuk’s hands needing something to do while eating breakfast in the morning. Apparently eating wasn’t enough. See more from the series over at Raster. (via artsy)

Retired P.E. Teacher Wears Same Outfit for 40 Years of Yearbook Portraits

Retired gym teacher Dale Irby posed for his first yearbook photo back in 1973 at Prestonwood Elementary school. The next year, completely by accident, Irby wore the exact same outfit. At first he was horrified to discover the faux pas, but then his wife made a dare: do it again the next year. Before you knew it a 40-year tradition was born; from 1973 to 2012 the teacher, now 63, wore an identical sweater vest and collared shirt for every single yearbook portrait. You can see a slideshow of the photos over at the Dallas Morning News. (via peta pixel)

Photographer Silvia Grav (slightly nsfw) lives and works in Madrid, Spain where she creates some beautifully original conceptual photographs. Her work can be dreamy and occasionally terrifying, as translucent layers of stars, clouds, and waves mingle with stark portraits, skeletons and shadowy figures. Several of her pieces are available as prints through various galleries, feel free to get in touch.

Untitled #20

Fine art photographer Harold Ross uses delicate light painting techniques to create surreal landscapes photographed late at night. The photographer, who has been perfecting his methods for over 25 years, uses an LED flashlight and other lights to selectively illuminate various areas in each photograph, a process he refers to as “light sculpting”. The results are scenes that look almost like digitally rendered illustrations, with numerous light sources that seem to come from every direction. The photos you see here really don’t do his work justice, see them much larger on his website. Ross also teaches about light painting over on his blog. (via faith is torment)
