Drifting Away: Erik Johansson [BTS]

His concepts are consistently interesting and his technical skills are absolutely superb. In this wonderful behind the scenes video, we get to see the making of Drifting Away, a 100-plus layer composite image that features a sunlit farm floating inside a bottle on […]

We have all seen different series of photographs with toys or small figures inserted into our larger world.

Pixxxels: JeanYves Lemoigne

The first photographs we saw from JeanYves Lemoigne were part of a feature in Amusement Magazine on porn and censorship. Lemoigne’s photos play on the pixelation technique used to mask or obscure “questionable” content.

Unique 1/2 Portraits

I am absolutely loving these simple yet unusual portraits by Venezuelan artist Jesus Gonzalez Rodriguez. He has seamlessly combined the side profile of a face with the front profile, creating these wonderful optical illusions. The portraits almost appear normal when you first look at them, with parts of them simply cut away, until you look […]

The Fantastic World Of Fredrik Ödman

It’s hard to describe the fantastical world that Fredrik Ödman seems to inhabit. The Swedish artist and photographer creates work that wanders effortlessly between editorial photography to nature and wildlife to surrealistic composites filled with a cast of characters born of Ödman’s own wild imagination. His brilliantly executed Composed Animals series, for example, contains aardvarks […]
