Some people get a thrill by riding on a roller coaster or driving a fast car. People like 19 year old Russian photographer Vitaly Raskalov get their thrill by skywalking, which consists of scaling tall structures without safety equipment and uploading pictures to social media sites. The only way to get such breathtaking photos is to climb the structures yourself, or look at them on the internet. I will gladly do the latter and let the thrill-seekers provide us with spectacular views. My palms are sweaty just from looking at them.
An absolutely amazing set of photos by Bruno Dayan. Each photo has a dreamlike quality to it that embraces a world of fashion, nature, and everyday settings. I like the unique use of bokeh elements that also helps to create the illusion of a watery atmosphere. Don't forget to check the rest of his photos.
A lot of the light art you see consists of creating fun shapes or patterns. Julien Breton's light art, however, consists of very intricately drawn calligraphy. Julien draws the fantastic calligraphy pieces, and they are captured with the help of G.J. Plisson, who takes the photos.
Philipp Klinger has an eye for beautiful lines, shapes and patterns. In this series, he captures one of the most iconic cities in the world: Paris, France, and does it great justice. Instead of taking conventional shots of the city, Philipp goes out and captures the things you might never notice.
I absolutely love these collages by Stephen Wilkes. Wilkes masterfully blends thirty to fifty photos of each location, going from day to night, into one fluid image. You can check them out in person at the Clamp Art Gallery in New York City from September 8th to October 29th.
A wonderful set of vintage postcards of Paris.There's something different about vintage postcards that make them feel more authentic than modern day postcards.
Craig Cramer's Bloom Day Scans are a thing of beauty. Almost every month, Craig scans flowers in bloom. His scans produce a wonderful look at which flowers bloom throughout the year. I love how the colorful flowers are offset by a black background, creating amazing contrast. If you like these photos, feel free to buy his Bloom Day Scans 2012 calendar on Zazzle.
There's something strangely fascinating about these Renaissance costume photographs by Christian Tagliavini. They are odd, intriguing and beautiful all at the same time. I think the abnormally long necks and interesting hats both make the costumes seem odd, but also help draw your attention. If you like these, I also recommend checking out his Dame di Cartone series.
These night photography shots by Justin Carrasquillo are absolutely amazing. Each one captures the wonder and beauty of nature. I especially love the colors in the sky and the abundance of stars illuminating the night.
