Have you ever said ‘hi’ to a person on the street and realized to your horror that they only look like someone you know? Canadian photographer François Brunelle is fascinated by this worldwide phenomena of look-alike that he created an entire series of portraits featuring strangers with uncanny resemblance to each other. He calls his series “I’m not a look-alike!“. The subjects, who are unrelated to each other, posed as one would when having a family portrait taken. The similarities of his subjects were further enhanced by their identical clothes and expressions.

half 12 The Other Half – Portraits by Roman Sakovich

Roman Sakovich is the London-based photographer who conceived, produced, and shot the series “Half” while still a photography student at the Arts University College in Bournemouth. Roman wanted to show the devastating effects of drug abuse and provide a vivid contrast with a clean-cut version of the same person. He had the right side of his models dressed in corporate attire, and the left side dressed as a junkie in dire need of a fix. The difference is startling, to say the least. Kudos to his make-up artist for making the bruises, bags, wrinkles, and needle marks look realistic. His other portraits, while not as dramatic as “Half” are just as thought-provoking.

4 the line 01 Drawing the Line – Photographs by Palíndromo Mészaros

Looking at the trees above, one might think that the trees are simply part of an outdoor art installation, but it’s not. On October 5, 2010, a toxic flood of sludge tore wreaked havoc in western Hungary, leaving nine people dead and more than 200 injured. Two years after the devastation, Spanish photographer Palíndromo Mészaros created a series he called “The Line”. It focuses not on the people affected but on the noxious byproduct scarring the town’s landscape.

burning matches art8 Hot Stuff – Match Art by Stanislav Aristov

Stanislav Aristov’s match art was born when he was unable to come up with an idea for a photo competition. He lit a match (out of boredom, I assume, since he doesn’t smoke) and observed the patterns formed by the flame. He found out that the burned wood also had artistic potential. He has had no professional exhibitions yet, but his work is slowly getting international attention over the internet.

Dave Engledow is the “World’s Best Father”, at least according to his coffee mug. But if his photographs are to be believed, he’s due for a visit from the authorities. According to him, his wacky photos were simply a way for him to deal with his personal fears and neuroses as a new father. Ever since the birth of his daughter, Alice Bee in 2010, he has been creatively inspired to document the memorable moments of her life in their family. His wife Jen also had a hand in setting up the shots behind his “World’s Best Father” series.

peacock spider 136 A Blaze of Color – A Closer Look at Peacock Spiders by Dr. Jurgen Otto

At four millimeters in length, the Peacock Spider is hard to find. Once found, dedicated searchers will be rewarded with what is perhaps one of the most colorful, if not, the most colorful of all the arachnids.It is not just the brilliant coloration that earned the spiders their name. The male’s elaborate mating dance starts with a little leg-waving, segues into some abdominal gyrations coupled with displays of bristled back legs. The finale is the raising of the two magnificently colored flaps done with a little jig. It’s the final act that justified adding “peacock” to their common name. Dr. Jurgen Otto, an arachnologist, delights in capturing the Peacock Spider’s antics with his camera.

A Giraffe, A Chopper, and You – Animal Photography by Andre Villeneuve

minimalist photography 110 A Giraffe, A Chopper, and You – Animal Photography by Andre Villeneuve

Minimalist isn’t very popular with a lot of photographers nowadays. Each shot is crammed with as much detail as it could hold. The result, while not altogether unpleasant, isn’t very relaxing to the eye. Animal photographer Andre Villeneuve has taken a different approach. Often, his shots contain nothing but the animal itself and its reflection. Andre is, by nature, an intuitive and spontaneous person who does his best to convey emotions through his photographs.
