Miniature Liquid Worlds by Markus Reugels

January 5, 2012

Christopher Jobson

I’m loving these liquid planets by German photographer Markus Reugels. Using large satellite photos as a backdrop and a high speed camera he captures the background’s refraction through water drops. The perfectly timed shots result in these spherical representations of the Earth, Moon and Jupiter. See much more of his work here and also here. Thanks Markus for sharing your work with Colossal!

17 Countries, 343 Days, 6,237 Photographs: A Five Minute Trip Around the World

January 4, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Last year artist and photographer Kien Lam quit his job and bought a one-way plane ticket to London. Camera in hand he embarked on an epic backpacking journey around the world shooting over 6,000 photographs that he compiled in this lovely short video set to music by William Lam. Resisting… urge… to buy… plane tickets. Beautiful work. (via stellar, gizmodo)

Animae Dementia: Mystical Paper Beasts Devour Unsuspecting Street Artists

January 3, 2012

Christopher Jobson

I’m loving this ongoing paste-up series by street artists Ro and l’Homme Pendu. Entitled Animae Dementia (roughly “soul madness” or “animal madness”) the project features the duo installing these giant paste-ups of crazy mythical beings who seem to turn on their unwitting creators. So far works have appeared in Berlin and near Notre Dame in Paris. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Stunning Long Exposure Photographs of Gold Fireflies in Japan

December 30, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Taken in various locations around Maniwa and Okayama Prefecture in Japan between 2008-2011 this brilliant series of photographs captures the wild frenzy of gold fireflies as they mate after thunderstorms during the June to July rainy season. Shot using a slow shutter speed, the neon green and yellow contrails seem almost digitally imposed on the scenic landscapes, but I assure you these are real. See them a bit larger here.

While going through the personal work of photographer Ross Gilmore, this image really stuck out. Hilariously creepy.
