Chinese photographer Yang Yongliang is mostly known for his photographic recreation of Chinese Shanshui paintings, however it was this installation entitled Cigarette Ash Landscape that really got my attention. (via the very fine 500 Photographers)

Josh Sommers: Stereographic Projections

January 13, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Generally when I encounter stereographic photos they all tend to look the same to me, or it seems like an overused effect applied at will to any image simply to make it “cool”. I genuinely feel that way about tilt-shift photos lately. However when I saw Josh Sommer‘s work today I knew immediately this was something different, something better. There’s a crispness and intensity to these photos, in that they appear to have been planned from the beginning instead of having an effect slapped on afterward. Much, much more over on his Flickr, including some stereographic animations and equirectangular panoramas. (via design boom)

The Japan Series by German photographer Andreas Gefeller is surprisingly beautiful. Much like Yojiro Imasaka, Gefeller makes extraordinary pictures from things that pass unnoticed above us every day. (via triangulation)

Ireland in Circles by Marco Suarez

January 5, 2011

Christopher Jobson

While on a trip to Ireland last year, South Carolina-based artist Marco Suarez snapped some impressive photos and turned them into these circular prints. The tight cropping gives these images a stark focus that’s pretty unique. The first image, Lock Ness, is definitely my favorite. Available here. (via svpply)

Andrew Hefter

Splendid shots from photographer Andrew Hefter based out of Savannah, Georgia. From his site:

With a wide range of photographic interests, the idea of a photo about mystery (in the manner of Magritte) remains a core component of Andrew’s portrait and conceptual work; the content is meaningless save for its creation. His landscapes are additionally diverse, analyzing both the Romantic and contemporary landscape in modernist terms.

Five photos hardly scratches the surface of a rather deep portfolio of work.
