Photographer Massimo Margagnoni explores aspects of nature and climate change through his stark black and white landscape photography. Of my favorites are his long exposure images of waterfalls in Norway and Iceland, many more of which you can see on Flickr. The award-winning Italian photographer has been published in National Geographic and recently published a book of his work, Fotografia dell’essere.
New York-based photographer Sean Lynch was in Nepal in September and captured these surreal, infrared photographs of Nepal. The photos were taken in the Annapurna Himalayan Range but their unique, reddish quality makes them look like something out of a Dr. Seuss book. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Cat in the Hat fall out of the sky with a loud “Bump.” You can see the entire set over on his tumblr site dorialusium.
As part of his latest project NHDK, photographer Víctor Enrich challenged himself to digitally reconfigure the same building in Munich, Germany in 88 different configurations. The Barcelona-based artist is known for his warped and skewed interpretations of architecture in locations around the world including an extensive series of images shot in Tel Aviv back in 2010. All of the photos are avilable as prints which you can pickup on his website. (thnx, Nacho!)
Photographer Christoffer Relander (previously here and here) returns with the third installment of his beautifully executed multiple exposure photographs that blend aspects of nature with portraits of people. Titled We Are Nature Vol. III, the series continues the Finnish photog’s experimentation with layering images in-camera using his Nikon D800, without the use of Photoshop. Prints available on request.
It’s fascinating to know while looking at these desaturated images of the Czech Bohemian Forest that the person who shot them, Cologne-based photographer Kilian Schönberger, is color blind. One can’t help but wonder if the condition leads to a greater appreciation for light and composition present in these mysterious, fog-soaked landscapes. That said, these particular monochromatic photos from Schönberger’s Cloud Forest series are more of an exception, as he generally shoots in full color, but the results are equally as magical. You can see much more of his work over on Facebook and Behance. (via Faith is Torment)
While exploring Antarctica aboard the M/S Expedition, the folks over at G Adventures snapped this wild perspective of a Gentoo penguin attacking their GoPro camera. The photo was shared on the M/S Expedition Twitter account where they regularly document the sights of ongoing adventure cruises. Related: an eagle steals a GoPro camera.
Last week on November 29th the Grand Canyon experienced a rare temperature inversion where cool air began to rise from the bottom of the canyon and met warm air above creating low level clouds. Apparently this type of thing happens once or twice a year, but almost never with clear skies which provided an unprecedented once-in-a-decade view of the canyon filled to the rim with fog. Several photographers were on hand including Ben Mayberry who captured some amazing panoramic shots, and Paul Lettieri managed to shoot a timelapse of the event. (via My Modern Met)
Recently completed for display at Dylan’s Candy Bar during Art Basel Miami, these towering architectural creations of the world’s most famous art museums and galleries were created with gingerbread and candy by food artists Caitlin Levin and Henry Hargreaves. An array of hard candy windows forms the iconic pyramid extension at the Louvre, while icing and gingerbread form the smooth curves of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Some of the iconic structures are so immaculately detailed that once photographed in black and white they almost look like the real thing. You can see more behind the scenes photos here.
