we control all and
we are all controlled
this is life
We only realize the true value of the things in the moment of losing them, though they were always there.
In Tomohide Ikeya's spectacular BREATH series, he puts on display something we take for granted every day of our lives: breathing. By putting people under water, he creates the bubbles on display in many of these photos, which can be seen as a representation of our need to breath.
This series of underwater photography by Nadia Moro is highlighted by extravagantly flowing dresses and graceful poses by the women in the photos. If you take a glance at the other photos series' in her portfolio, you can see she has a knack for capturing beauty in people.
Some pretty cool black and white abstract shape photos from Brandon Mike. I love the simple minimalist patterns in his photos. They make for some interesting subjects.
Up until fairly recently, even Eugene de Salignac's own family did not know much about him. The family received a call from the Municipal Archives of the City of New York and discovered Eugene was the photographer of thousands of images. While he worked for the Department of Bridges, De Salignac shot the construction of the Manhattan and Queensboro Bridges among other things. This is just a small record of some of his magnificent photos. If you like these, you can get a book of his photos on Amazon.
A beautiful photo by Edward Weston as part of his Nude series.
Interestingly enough, while uploading this photo to Facebook, this description was automatically inserted:
"The documentary, called Eloquent Nude, which chronicles the relationship of Edward Weston and Charis Wilson is done. Charis is now 92, and she was a big part of Edward's most productive years. She is perhaps one of the most famous nudes in modern photography. Her recollections, caught on film by McCluskey -- and recreated by McCluskey -- form the heart of the film. It will premiere on March 8th at Portland Art Museum."
You might remember Matt Mawson from his great Coney Island series. This time he captures the Queensboro Bridge in New York City and its surroundings. I think the high contrast in these photos really helps make these rainy day photos come to life and gives them a gritty look.
This is a wonderful series of black and white photos of the Taj Mahal by Thamer Al-Tassan. I love how all the photos were taken from a different perspective which gives you a much deeper and in depth look at the the surroundings of the world renowned building.
These are some breathtaking black and white underwater photos by Hengki Koentjoro. These photos give you just a small but incredibly interesting look at what life is like in the deep blue. It just goes to show what a large, interesting and amazing place the Earth can be.
