I am such a sucker for multiple exposure photography, it simply never, ever gets old for me, especially when composed as wonderfully as these recent shots by self-taught photographer Christoffer Relander who lives and works in Finland. You can see many more shots on his website and prints are available over on Behance. If you like these, also check out the work of Jon Duenas. (via the curious brain)
For the past few weeks photographer Gavin Hammond has been capturing the beauty of London’s architecture and people as reflected in puddles. You can see much more over on My Modern Met and Flickr.
German photographer Florian Imgrund acquired his first film camera in the summer of 2010 and has made incredibly good use of it since. All of his double exposure work is done completely in camera without the use of photoshop, and often merges human forms with the natural landscape. I don’t think I’ve been this impressed with double exposure work since first discovering Dan Mountford. You can see much more of Florian’s work on Flickr and you can follow him on Facebook.
A number of decidedly unsettling portraits from Hamburg-based photographer Carsten Witte from his series Intuition (nsfw). Of the series he says: “One main idea behind my work is the belief that everything is constantly changing but photography can preserve the moment. Beauty is almost nothing without the knowledge of how fast it will fade…” (via behance)
I love this pair of photos by London-based photographer Grant Simon Rogers who only recently picked up his camera after a nearly 20 year hiatus. Weren’t we lucky. And what on earth?
Photographer Jonathan Rosser shoots wonderfully gritty portraits that at times appear like stills from centuries-old silent films, and yet at other times so real and life-like, it’s as if the individuals are peering at you from the other side of your monitor. Rosser has only been shooting for three years and finds his subjects in cities around the U.S. from the streets of Skid Row in L.A. to New York, Baltimore and his home in Washington D.C. The portraits are even more striking when shown against black, so I’ve taken the liberty to link the selections above to lightboxes. Thank you Jonathan for sharing your work with Colossal.
While going through the personal work of photographer Ross Gilmore, this image really stuck out. Hilariously creepy.
The Australasian Antarctic Expedition team explored Antarctica from 1911 through 1914, studying geology, meteorology, and mapping unknown lands. Here, a photograph by Frank Hurley shows the team meteorologist C.T. Madigan with an incredibly thick ice mask after a day of weathering the elements. Here’s another more extreme example. The photo is from the National Library of Australia Commons which recently made several hundred historical images available online.
