A number of extraordinary images by Poland-based photographer Lukasz Wierzbowski (previously). Check out his shop for a few limited edition prints, but you can also request prints of his other images as well via his website. (via illusion)
The world of Spanish artist Dara Scully is filled with childlike fantasy, her photos blending the lines between fact and fiction, each loaded with rich narrative potential. Acting frequently as the protagonist, Scully places herself in a world where bicycles are strapped to hot air balloons, where she parties with miniature elephants, and has adventures rivaling those of Alice in Wonderland. I can only hope an enterprising children’s book publisher will reach out to her soon. Follow along via Flickr. (thnx, dara!)
Ever since photographer Noah Kalina began his Everyday portrait project 11 years ago (I had no idea he was still actively photographing himself, talk about commitment) there have been hundreds of inspired photogs snapping daily self-portraits. Flickr user clickflashwhir is one of these people, taking hundreds of portraits over the past several years. Tiemen Rapati downloaded 500 of her photos and created this beautiful composite image by finding an average RGB value for each pixel and dividing it by the total number of portraits. I have no idea how this is done, but I bet it involves computers. It’s amazing how surgically accurate she must sit, I assume using her eyes to align each shot. Really stunning. Just a note, though it says Tiemen used 400 photos on Flickr, he averaged in another 100 for this post. (via feltron)
Turkey-based artist Kerem Ozan Bayraktar works with digital image, video and object installations. His most recent series of digital c-prints, Stasis, involves delicately aged model planes, helicopters, bicycles, trains and other forms of transportation in various states of physical suspension. See much more here.
Great photo by Portland-based designer Jed Heuer.
First off: yes, these are photographs, no Photoshop at work here. This set of five panoramic photographs by artist Rosemary Laing shows the framework of an inverted, partially-completed building (though at times the photographs themselves are inverted) embedded in the Australian landscape around Cooma, New South Wales. The series, entitled Leak, examines ‘the encroachment of suburban development and the socio-economic and environmental pressures on the Australian landscape’ and each photograph is named after characters in Patrick White’s novel The Twyborn Affair (ie. Jim, or Prowse). Read more over on Art Blat. Aside from my love for skewed and dramatic perspectives in photography, these images are tickling many wonderful parts of my brain right now. I can only imagine the larger impact of seeing these as they’re meant to be seen as enormous prints, framed in white on a gallery wall.
A great capture from Moscow-based photographer Vika Palatova.
