At its core the basic premise of this photo series by Italian photographer and designer Francesco Brunotti isn’t something tremendously new, that is the digital removal of objects from images, for instance Seats by Jens Sage. But in its art direction and execution something wonderful emerges and I found myself smiling hugely. See his first series, and the second.
Inner Space is a lovely series of photos by London-based Owen Silverwood that depicts miniaturized spacecraft blasting through confined aquatic landscapes. Thanks Owen for sharing your work with Colossal! (via notcot)
Though the trend of desaturated photographs of people floating has reached a fever pitch, this unique take on the idea by Jens Sage caught my attention. More of his work here.
A few shots from a great project by photographer Christian Gideon who asked the question, what if you lived at IKEA? … and answered it by taking some hilarious photos of he and his friends living it up in IKEA mock rooms furnished with all matter of low-cost Swedish design.
Italian photographer Mario Zanaria has some striking contact sheets (nsfw) of his models. Amazing.
Maybe I’m late to the table on this one, but I just encountered Shauna Richardson‘s taxidermy crochet for the first time. I don’t think they require a terrible amount of explanation, but I will say that the photography of her taxidermy “in the wild” is really pretty striking. Also via her website: “For two years she has been creating the largest single-handed crochet sculpture in the world. The finished piece will be housed in a mobile glass taxidermy style case and tour throughout 2012.” What! Can’t wait to see the unveiling of this crochet behemoth. (via who killed bambi)
