LA based photographer Siri Kaur‘s project Half of the Whole is a beautiful set that includes images of distant stars and galaxies. She calls the project “a photographic exploration of time and light.” She started with the project in 2007, visiting Kitt Peak in Arizona to photograph outer space. She got help of planetary scientists to capture photographs of distant galaxies through a digital sensor attached to a Meade solar telescope. Once the photographs are available, she processes them through traditional color darkroom printing, using films of cyan, magenta, and yellow filter to give this rather unique appearance to the images.
Photographer Beth Galton specializes in capturing food through the camera lens. In the conceptual series “Cut Food” the photographs show a cross-section of popular food items, including the packaged goodies. Since we have never quite seen food from that angle, it’s almost a brand new look at food items themselves!
Tippi Degré was born in Namibia, Africa while her parents French wildlife photographers Alain Degré and Sylvie Robert were there in the Kalahari. Considering the place she grew up in, there weren’t really many children around so the infant Tippi became friends with the vast variety of wildlife who were her neighbors. These photographs, taken by her parents, serve to document the childhood of the now 20 year old girl.
Putting his love for photography and travel together, New York-based photographer Richard Silver not just visits various spots around the world, he brings back delicious visual goodies of his travels. The photographer makes use of several techniques to capture images, though for the moment our primary interest would be dictated by his project Tilt Shift.
New York city and London are both huge cities and centers for culture with an influence that spreads not just to their respective regions, but can be very global in approach. This series of photographs explores how similar both the cities would be in appearance, the age-old yet modern London, and the comparatively new city of New York. Photographer Daniella Zalcman recently moved from New York to London, and this move prompted the series we see here.
High speed photography has brought us the goodness of things we saw everyday, but never actually noticed. Belgium-based photographer Manon Wethly created her project Flying Stuff. To strip it to the crude details, the project involves throwing liquids, and photographing the effect. Of course, that is easier said than done, but the photographing patterns the liquids form would be rewarding enough by way of satisfaction.
Photographer Jakob Wagner for his series Sightseeing Tunnel shows light is not just at the end of the tunnel, but very much a brilliant part of the tunnel itself. Lights and effects that the tunnel sports are quite enthralling, and to us, gives an appearance of what would be similar to moving through a well lit tunnel at a very high speed.
Singapore based photographer Jared Lim photographs urban architecture and landscapes to present them in part that make them appear in very interesting patterns. We’ve been seeing a few examples of urban architecture recently, and this one just shows how colorful and patterned it all is, even though we see similar things everyday and never notice.
Zev is a fourteen year old with an imagination and photography skills that are quite impressive. In the surreal photographs, Zev plays with perspective to often shrink himself to the size of little objects as he journeys though what looks like a magical landscape.
