Vesa Lehtimäki, aka Avanaut on Flickr, has created some pretty fabulous works of art out of his childrens' Star Wars toys. He has created some creative and very well thought out shots from the toys. He even has a book coming out, Lego on Hoth, which imagines what everyday life on the planet Hoth.
Lauren Peralta has a wonderful set of self portraits throughout her Flickr account. She just has a way of beautifully capturing herself on camera. I highly recommend viewing her most viewed and most interesting photographs or just wandering through her photo stream. Below are just some of the photos she tagged as self portraits.
Kim Burke masterfully mixes two of my favorite things: food and design. Her miniature food sculptures are absolutely incredible. She realistically creates everything from apple pie, to sushi, to cheese wedges. The amazing part is, they all look completely realistic and would be hard to distinguish from real food if it weren't for the giant fingers in the photos. You can find more of her work on Etsy, Deviant Art or Flickr.
Liz Brizzi is an artist from France who grew up in Los Angeles. She pulls inspiration from the raw and desolate aspects of cities.
"Her unique mixed media technique begins with the manipulation of her original photography collaged onto acrylic painted wood panels, finally blended within layers of colorful acrylic washes."
It's not every day you get to see such a refreshing set of engagement photos. This wonderful set was shot by Olivia Graham in Central Park. There is a nice vintage feel to the photos, from the outfits, to the makeup and lighting, everything gives you that old-fashioned feel. Let's hope some more photographers can take a page from this book.
