The Moon Sways Through Its Phases in an Incredible Timelapse Made from Over 2 Million Images

April 1, 2022

Kate Mothes

In lunar astronomy, a phenomenon known as libration is the perception that the moon is wavering or swaying in the sky when viewed from Earth. Astrophotographer Andrew McCarthy (previously) wanted to record this fascinating occurrence in high resolution to emphasize the changes in light and contrast across the vast and cratered lunar surface. For nearly a month, he traveled around the state of Arizona in search of clear skies, dodging bad weather and a dust storm to capture clear images of the moon as it reached its zenith every night. In total, more than two million individual photographs comprise the…

In the Frigid Morning Air, a Singing Red-Wing Blackbird Blows Impressive Rings

March 28, 2022

Grace Ebert

Photographer Kathrin Swoboda frequents Huntley Meadows Park in Alexandria in search of red-wing blackbirds as they sing. On a cold morning back in 2019, she captured the conspicuous avians mid-tune, an activity that produced what appears to be smoke rings emanating from their beaks. The frigid temperatures make the hazy formations of condensation visible, and the serendipitous shot won the top prize in that year's Audubon Photography Awards. Prints of the breathy birds, in addition to more of Swoboda's wildlife images, are available on her site, and she…

A Melting Polar Bear and Surreal Wildlife Sculptures Burn in the Annual Falles Spectacle

March 23, 2022

Grace Ebert

After a COVID-related hiatus, the annual Falles festival in Valencia, Spain, returned this year with an extravagant celebration full of flames and sparks. The five-day pyrotechnic event draws thousands of people into the streets each March to witness fireworks, explosions, and a variety of sculptures burn to the ground, and at the heart of this year's production was a 23-foot polar bear by artist Antonio Segura, aka Dulk (previously). Following works by PichiAvo, Okuda San Miguel, and Escif in previous iterations, Dulk's fantastical and surreal "Protect What…

Rich Linework in Black Ink Composes Meditative Mounds and Ridges in Lee Hyun-Joung’s Paintings

March 4, 2022

Grace Ebert

Artist Lee Hyun-Joung likens her meditative renderings to pathways that prompt the eye to travel along each line. Working with Korean ink and traditional pigments on handmade Hanji paper, Lee's practice is as contemplative as the resulting pieces, which portray heaving mounds and supple ridges reminiscent of mountains and other land formations. "My universe is poetic," she tells Colossal, "like an inner journey. I invite you to take a walk, to follow me in these aerial views. They were born…

Shantell Martin Discusses the Power of a Single Line and Why Positivity Is Her Biggest Inspiration

February 16, 2022

Grace Ebert

Shantell Martin has been exploring the magic in a single line since childhood, and it's that seemingly minimal marking that defines her practice still today. She works primarily in black-and-white, inscribing walls, canvases, and other objects with abstracted faces and affirmational text. Inviting, accessible, and universally relevant, her monochromatic drawings are prompts for the viewer: Who are you? Are you you? She continually asks for introspection, for better articulating our positions in the world, and for questioning the structures around us, a practice she mirrors in her own life and work. An artist, philosopher, designer, and wholly creative person, Martin…

I’m Not a Look-Alike: Hundreds of Unrelated Doppelgängers Sit for François Brunelle’s Uncanny Portraits

February 9, 2022

Grace Ebert

Do we all have a double? Montréal-based photographer François Brunelle has been intrigued by that question since he began his I'm Not a Look-Alike series back in 1999, which brings together two unrelated people who resemble each other so much that they could be twins. He's uncovered hundreds of doppelgängers around the world since and taken minimal, black-and-white portraits of approximately 250 pairs in 32 cities. Brunelle's now-massive collection is a testament to the mysterious and strange phenomenon that's captivated humans for centuries, which has roots in paranormal lore and continues to be the subject matter of a number of…
