Some beautiful shots of bridges and cities by New York City based photographer Andrew Mace. He sure has a way of making everything seem beautiful and interesting. Make sure to check out his website to see some cool information about his photos and things he's learned along the way.
There's something intriguing about these beauty shots by German born freelance photographer Daniela Glunz. It's probably the fact that the makeup is so overdone that it is more like expressionist art than true makeup. Bright colors, glitter, paint, and powder are all used to create these interesting shots. If you like these, make sure to check out some more of her work here.
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.
Christina of Sweden - The Androgynous Queen (1626 – 1689)
This is an absolutely incredible digital art series by Alexia Sinclair. Here's an excerpt from her site explaining the series:
"Alexia Sinclair’s The Regal Twelve is a series that combines hundreds of photographic elements and illustrations to form complex digitally montaged artworks. The series portrays twelve European monarchs who have ruled supreme and whose lives span over two millennia. Through the study of history and portraiture, a series of contrasting regals formed, whose stories are revealed within each artwork. Travelling to Europe to photograph a host of regal backdrops, Sinclair returned to Australia to photograph models and props in the studio. Like pieces from a jigsaw puzzle, she meticulously stitched together each element, along with a myriad of delicious symbols and motifs relating to each monarch."
