Pawel Bajew5 Abberant – Images by The Paweł Bajew

Paweł Bajew is an awesome self-taught photographer from Poland whose work relies on ideas and not on the number of megapixels or fancy digital enhancement. Most of the time, he poses for his own shots with home made costumes and paraphernalia. His abstract images entice errant thoughts to flit through the viewer’s mind. Oddly enough, the longer you look at his work makes you want to look at more of his work, just to find out what other wacky ideas he came up with.

childrens surreal nightmare photos dream collector arthur tress 12 Nightmares Revisited – Photography by Arthur Tress

Why Arthur Tress would ever want to revisit childhood nightmares is anyone’s guess but that is exactly what he did in the late 1960s and 70s. He called his series Dream Collector and since CGI wasn’t a thing back then, all the effects in his photos were created the old-fashioned way. Thatfact that theseimages were gathered by interviewing children in playgrounds what make them a little more creepy than pictures out to be. He said: “Dreams or nightmares were collected by conversations with children in schools, streets, or neighborhood playgrounds. The children would be asked means of acting out their visions or to suggest ways of making them into visual actualities… These inventions often reflect the child’s inner life, his hopes and fears, as well as his symbolic transmutation of the external environment, his home or school, into manageable forms.

Evelyn Bencicova11 640x700 600x656 Faceless – Photography by Evelyn Bencicova

Evelyn Bencicova is a Berlin-based artist famous for her somber-hued photographs. She uses the human figure as a sculptural tool instead of an individual. Most of her images present flat, grey-tinged lighting that enhances the subject instead of retracting from it. According to one website: “The way Bencicova hides the faces of her models from the camera’s eye can be seen as a reference to the indiscriminate nature of death, as the increasing destruction of the private self found in modern culture, and the dehumanization of women within the political struggle over the control of their bodies.

7 days of garbage 116 A Week’s Worth – Environmental Photography by Gregg Segal

Wasteful is a god adjective as any to describe the habits of the average America. According to studies the average Joe generates around four pounds of garbage a day. Gregg Segal is a Californian photographer who wanted to put things in perspective with his series “7 Days of Garbage”. The series features shots of families, friends, and neighbors wallowing in a weeks worth of trash they’ve created. Most of his models were volunteers who believed in the idea behind the shoot, while few had to be compensated. Gregg wanted to enforce the idea that garbage is everywhere and that no environment is left untouched by it. He said: “7 Days of Garbage is a series of portraits of friends, neighbors, and other acquaintances with the garbage they accumulate in the course of a week. Subjects are photographed surrounded by their trash in a setting that is part nest, part archeological record. We’ve made our bed and in it we lie.

American Asylum Jeremy Harris 07 Asylum – Photography by Jeremy Harris

American Asylums is a series by photographer Jeremy Harris which delves into the heart of abandoned mental institutions across the East Coast and New England. The asylums are in a state of decay, having been closed, abandoned, and forgotten a long time ago. Some images are a little creepy and I can’t help but think of Arkham Asylum, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, and horror movies set in hospitals. Maybe these facilities were more cheerful when they were in their prime, but any institution with bars in the windows can’t possibly be a happy place to spend most of your adult life.

4 Russian Salt Mines – Daring Photography by Mikhail Mishainik

When you stare too long at the walls of Russian salt mines, after a while, they start to stare right back at you. Daredevil photographer Mikhail Mishainikfound this out the hard way when he went to an abandoned salt mine 650-feet below the city of Yekaterinburg in Russia. He has spent over twenty hours exploring the place and found colorfully hypnotic patterns of carnallite on the floors, walls, and ceilings of the mine. Carnallite is a rich source of magnesium and is mainly used to make crop fertilizers. He said: “It is hard to describe how it feels being so far down, you lose all track of time and the air is very dry, you always feel thirsty. There is the possibility of a gas leak from chemicals such as methane, hydrogen sulphide carbon dioxide as well the risk of a landslide. The danger element is part of the fun and it’s a special feeling being somewhere very few people have seen.”

Martin’s ideas are wacky and his execution is perfect. He is one up-and-coming artist we should all watch out for.

A rather significant number of them also feature his direwolf, er, dog Malu. Guillermo loves taking shots of foggy forests with his trusty Olympus E-M5. The fog should’ve made his shots spooky, but it doesn’t. Instead, it lends the image a tranquil atmosphere. At least until winter comes.
