Snow Monkeys at the Jigokudani Monkey Park

March 16, 2012

Christopher Jobson

One of my favorite recent additions to the 200 or so photographers I keep up with on Flickr is the work of Kyoto-based Kiyoshi Ookawa who has been capturing these wonderfully intimate portraits of snow monkeys. The monkeys live in a sanctuary at the Jigokudani Monkey Park which is at an elevation of 850 meters (2,788 feet) meaning that the ground is covered in snow for a third of the year. The monkeys congregate at a hot springs in the facility and if you’re lucky you might even catch them on their live webcam (no monkeys at press time).

Underwater Ink Photographs by Alberto Seveso

March 13, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Over the past two years or so there’s been no shortage of photography and short films featuring the sensuous curls of ink plumes dispersing underwater. Yet nobody comes close to the master, Italian photographer Alberto Seveso (previously here and here) who creates impressive underwater landscapes so rich in detail and color it makes me want to swim through my monitor. See more from his new series, a due Colori.

Analog Double Exposure Photographs by Florian Imgrund

March 13, 2012

Christopher Jobson

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.

Inside Instruments

March 8, 2012

Christopher Jobson

This print campaign for the Berlin Philharmonic orchestra uses macro photographs taken inside the cramped spaces of instruments making the inner workings of a violin, cello, flute, and pipe organ appear vast and spacious, almost as if you could walk around inside them. So wonderfully done. Art directed by photographer Bjorn Ewers, you can see more over on Behance.

Update: The photography is by Mierswa Kluska and the original concept came from Mona Sibai and Björn Ewers.
