Get ready to be inspired and in awe. These four artists sure know how take a photo (and a short film). I urge you to click through to see more of their work.
From top left to right:
1. As part of her ‘Enjoy Your Stay’ photographic documentation of the Australian landscape, Sydney photographer Lisa Sorgini immersed blooms in bubbles of water for great effect. See more at Lisa’s website. First seen on Fubiz.
2. Italian artist and filmmaker Yuri Ancarani has produced a simple but evocative film of what goes on in a marble quarry in the Apuan Alps in Northwest Italy, with ‘Il Capo‘, the chief, in the leading role. Even the sound effects (sans soundtrack) are amazing. Watch it at Nowness.
3. Using her three photogenic dogs, Rocco, Ralph and Simon, in starring roles New Zealand-born award-winning photographer Serenah captures the essence of dog and a large dose of humour in her animal series of photographs. She also photographs cats and people. I defy anyone who doesn’t love them (or at least, have a giggle).
4. Berlin-based Swede, Erik Johansson, is a photographer and retoucher who creates the most amazing surreal photographs where worlds are turned upside down and reality is just a little mixed up. You can see more of his work and watch behind-the-scenes videos on how he does it on Design Boom.
Which one do you love the best?
