Most famous for his ethereal, black and white landscape photography, Michael Kenna has the gift of making everything look super poetic. Mind you..these aren't quick snap shots. Some of his photographs have taken up to 10 hours of exposure for which Kenna mainly uses Hasselblad medium formats, which in turn explains the square sized photographs.
I've chosen to post just some of the images from the… Continue

Captured on different days and time of the day, this hill tells a new story every time. Which is one of photographers Paul Octavious' strongest assets, the talent of telling a story with images.
This became so evident while I was browsing his website. With every project he was able to make me curious enough to see the next photo and the next, making me feel a little sad every time I reached the end of one set of photographs. Just like… Continue

She took a bath when suddenly it occurred to her how she could photograph the bath bubbles in an interesting way. So she took out her new camera and discovered that this new camera was perfect for macro photography. Different coloring and the right lighting help to make the most interesting compositions, making some of the shots seem like we're looking at living cells or…

I repainted my walls. And for some time now...I've been pondering about what else to do with them. While looking for options I stubled upon these. I quite like them. The Pong one is cool. Might go for something like that, just to test it out. Still thinking about it.
It's not a completely new idea, But... these leave no marks when it's removed. So whether you leave it on or take it down..there will be regrets. And it enables you to… Continue

Sizzling hot PULP images. Pulp used to be magazines printed on cheap paper which would easily turn yellow even before the magazines hit the news stands. The cover illustrations were often fantastical images of with damsels in distress and hero's and villains. Nowadays of course woman don't flail about helplessly. They take matters into their own hands, tough as nails, which is all the more sexy. With these Krug and Harbeck really capture the… Continue

What happens when you take immaculate traditional Japan and mash it up with violence, vulgarity and all things spawned from hell? You get a badass combo that seems lethal just looking at it. Using only black white and the occasional splash of red Shohei Otomo
creates a bold and gripping effect.
Every single image he presents to us is like a punchline in a black comedy. If you don't have a… Continue

Lurking behind closed doors are people in situations most are hesitant to see. When you would walk by one of those doors, what would your reaction be? Different to all of us, but it's sure to leave a haunting impression.
Art like this would be virtually impossible to have on display in an art gallery. You could give a try, but it would take away most of the viewers experience. On the streets it would catch you by surprise when at a glance… Continue

I said "WOW" when I saw this picture. Then I saw more and remembered that this was the same guy that did those great Carhartt ads a few years ago. Pablo now goes by the name of Sozyone Gonzalez
He started out forging money. He went to a couple of art schools, co-created De Puta Madre and has now created a… Continue

The body is a vessel for the soul. You could also say that it's just a bunch of cells holding a lot of water. It can be arousing, repulsing, inspiring. Our bodies express our emotions. Sometimes it's even intentionally used to show lack of emotion. So, what if the body is shown as a composition does it mean its just an object? Does it express less? What do you… Continue

The picture above looks like the brave young man has fallen down from inferno straight through a fiery bellowing cloud. He's actually swimming in the sea, going underneath a rolling wave. These photographs have a vintage look to them. They make me feel somewhat nostalgic about something I've never even done before...like free diving for example.
While most would choose colour photographs to document the underwater world, not surprising…
