street 2 640x640 Fun and Interactive Street Art by Ernest Zacharevic

Ernest Zacharevic is a street artist whose photo-based murals have been cropping up all over Europe, Malaysia, and Singapore. Most, if not all, of his work is site-specific. The first thing he does when making a new piece is to take lots of photographs of the place before choosing the angles with which to paint his subject. He said: “Working with children allows more anonymity, I don’t consider my artworks to be portraits of a specific person, rather a universal experience.” His subjects can be seen interacting with real objects like bikes, motorcycles, chairs, shopping carts, and even roofs.

Macro Ice Photography 10 Each One Unique – Snowflake Macrophotography by Andrew Osokin

Andrew Osokin is a Russian photographer who loves capturing close-up shots of snowflakes. With all that snow in Moscow, it’s easy enough for him to pick and choose a subject. His camera of choice is a Nikon D80 and a Nikon D90 DSLR fitted with a 60mm or 90mm macro lens. Some of the snowflakes he’s captured are in the process of melting which gives them even weirder shapes. Each of Andrew’s shots are so amazingly detailed one might almost mistake them for computer generated images.

Justin Hofman is an underwater photographer, videographer, and naturalist who loves to document the fast-vanishing landscapes of Antartica. He said: “The planet’s polar regions are warming at incredible rates. Who knows what these areas will look like in 50-100 years? Abstract shapes. Brilliant blues. Who doesn’t like getting lost in a chaos of crystals?” His incredible half-submerged underwater shots of whales, penguins on ice floes, and icebergs set him apart form other nature photographers. If you ever want to give him words of wisdom or encouragement, suggestions, or a million-dollar donation, please feel free to contact him on his site linked at the bottom of the page.

light rorschach 05 Light Paintings – Photographs by Nicolas Rivals

While other artists use pigments to paint, Nicolas Rivals uses light. His work isn’t exactly a painting as it is an photo captured through long exposure then flipped to create a sort of Rorschach image made of light. Nicolas has another series of light paintings featuring a bright circle of light floating in the middle of an urban setting. He said: “There is always hope that even in the depths of night a glimmer will appear. Light is never as reassuring as the anguish of the shadow. A little light, a little sense, would for a moment, make the chaos disappear”. Nicolas lives and works in Paris, France.

Torgeir Berge is the devoted human of an uber friendly German shepherd named Tinni. As the two were taking their accustomed afternoon walk in the woods, they met an abandoned baby fox. Surprisingly, instead of having the baby fox for an afternoon snack, Tinni made friends with it. The incident inspired Torgeir to support the banning of hunting foxes for their fur. He is now working on a book together with writer Berit Helberg which will be called The Fox And The Dog. Torgeir, Tinni, and Sniffer all live in Norway where they continue to have afternoon walks in the woods.

Martin Tremblay is a Canadian photographer who was recently commissioned by the fashion magazine Schön! to create a rather unusual series. The series entitled “Fortune Cookies” feature nattily dressed models in posing in Chinatown. What makes the whole series unusual is that these models are on their heads. I sure hope it’s simply a trick of photography, otherwise those models are in for a killer headache.

animal earth photo 01 600x854 Unusual Underwater Sea Creatures – Photography by Alexander Semenov

Animal Earth is a book which explores the diverse life forms that can be found all over Earth. This coffee table treat makes it clear that each species is an essential part of the ecosystem and protecting animal diversity is protecting the delicate cycle of life that supports us all. Alexander Semenov is the man behind the glorious underwater shots in Animal Earth. He is the Head of the Scientific Divers team stationed at the White Sea Biological Station in Russia. As such, he has free reign to take as many shots as he wants of these shy underwater creatures. I’m glad he did, as I personally don’t want to get close to something with that many legs, no matter how rare or colorful it is.

joseph ford aerial fashion 1 Cut and Fold – Aerial and Fashion Photography Mash up by Joseph Ford

Joseph Ford is the artist behind these creative mash-ups that seamlessly combines aerial photography with textiles. The series was inspired by Joseph’s recent trip to Mauritius, Morocco, and Sicily where he spent his time flying around in a helicopter taking aerial shots of the terrain below. According to one website: “The combination of images creates a fascinating interaction, highlighting the appeal of each image, which would have been less remarkable on their own.” Joseph has a degree in French and Italian at the University of Cambridge. He got his first break as a photographer in 2004 with an advertising campaign for TBWA Paris. When not abroad for photo shoots, he lives in Brighton, UK.
