Stephen Emerson was born in Northern Ireland. I suppose it helps that he can point his camera pretty much anywhere and get a great shot. Nevertheless, a lousy photographer still won’t be able to capture these landscapes with the same brilliance. Stephen likes to “experiment with different ways of creating an image to give it a air of mystery”. His loves shooting at dusk and at night to create a dramatic mood.
Rob Kesseler merged art and science when he took these amazingly detailed photographs of microscopic flora. The technique in capturing these amazing shots is a bit more complicated than just pointing the lens and pressing the shutter button. First, the plant material was given a fine coating of gold and photographed with a scanning electron microscope. Next, the images were treated with washes and layers of color to bring out the each detail. The results looked a lot like a viruses but they’re actually just pollen, seed, and fruit.
Photographer Nelleke Pieters has a thing for the mystery of the deep, dark woods. Most, if not all, of her shots are of seldom used paths amidst the trees. Tracks surrounded by so much greenery on both sides it’s basically a tunnel. Twilight, dusk, and dawn are her favorite time of the day to take pictures, capturing the mystic mood of the forest.
Some artists can take expressive art to an almost surreal level. Adam Martinakis is one of them. With 3d digital renders of sculptures with a somewhat disturbing yet subtle feel. Each piece definitely creates a mysterious story that is left to the viewer’s level of creativity in imagination. There is such an odd force of attraction and wonder that doesn’t leave right after one looks away from the artwork.
