  1. Photographer: Henrik Isaksson Garnell

    February 13, 2013 by Erin Fletcher


    Photographer Henrik Isaksson Garnell captures the bedrock in a mysterious and abstract light, as if documenting a foreign planetary landscape. No matter the location, these images are incredibly striking.

  2. Photographer: Daniel Kukla

    February 6, 2013 by Erin Fletcher


    Photographer Daniel Kukla carried a large mirror and painter’s easel into the wilderness of southern California’s Joshua Tree National Park to capture the elements of the environment. Inspiration came as Daniel hiked through the desert capturing glimpses of where the Sonoran meets the Mojave; at the border of these two deserts emerges a distinct opposition of ecosystems known as the Edge Effect. Through his appropriately titled series The Edge Effect, Daniel creates a single portrait which unifies the two landscapes.

  3. Photographer: PoL Úbeda Hervàs

    I’m Not There is an ongoing series from Barcelona based photographer PoL Úbeda Hervàs. These photographs are absolutely brilliant and haunting at the same time. An excerpt about the piece in the artist’s words: “I am changing at this very moment of my life. I do not react in the same ways I used to. I am surprised. Is that me? These pictures are the way I see myself now.”

  4. Photographer: Alma Haser

    January 23, 2013 by Erin Fletcher


    I’m amazed as to how artists continually reinvent the Portrait. In the series Cosmic Surgery, photographer Alma Haser captures confounding imagery. After the initial portrait is taken, the image is reprinted several times and folded into a complicated origami structure. This modular structure is then strategically placed over the face and the portrait is rephotographed leaving the subject feeling more alien than familiar.

    During an artist’s residency on board a sailboat near the Arctic Circle, Canadian artist Sarah Anne Johnson captures these alluring images of the surrounding landscape. In the series Arctic Wonderland, the landscapes are transformed further into surrealism through the subtle application of pigment by using techniques ranging from painting with acrylics and india ink to photoshop and screen-printing.

    treestarbird2_mattshallenbergerIn a recent series titled Trees, Stars and Birds photographer Matt Shallenberger uses light to isolate tree forms through highlights and silhouette in the blackness of night. These eerie images are quite lovely, evoking bleak feelings of loneliness.

  9. Photographer: Louis Lander-Deacon

    December 12, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    At the young age of 19, Louis Lander-Deacon, brings a fresh eye to photography. In the series Dreamer, Lander-Deacon captures the unconscious in a moment of pure release. Under Lander-Deacon’s Surrealism gallery, explosions of color are seized mid-air, filling the frame with dense, colorful clouds, blocking our view of the human figure (similar to Brice Bischoff’s exploration of the movement of color on film.)

    Just a couple more beautiful images:

  10. Photographer: Ina Jang

    Fashion photographer Ina Jang captures some wild and awkward shots for Jalouse magazine. Her portfolio seems playful with it’s candy-coated palette, yet Jang consistently removes her subjects identities through overlapping imagery.
