A new project from photographer Alexander Khokhlov is prompting double takes and pushing portraiture in a new direction. The Moscow-based artist’s latest series, dubbed “2D or not 2D,” uses heavy makeup and post-production techniques to transform human faces into seemingly two-dimensional images. “We tried to make ‘alive posters,’” said Alexander Khokhlov. “It’s challenging to make people look like a poster while at the same time not very digitized.” He was working with makeup artist Valeriya Kutsan, and his wife, Veronica, whom he also describes as his muse.

Bence Bakonyi took some amazing pictures with the help of Kira Koroknai for the eerie Floating.  Pushing these limits of photography helped them to create a certain tension between the actual space (the set), and the subject photographed (people).

Graphic design is Golden and this artist really showed us that. Its just not ‘slapping text and an image together’ in order to make any print material or online graphics. Its just no sitting in front of a screen, but a blend of research hard work and creativity with lots of time spent.

While many photo innovators cease developing outside their fait accompli, Bertil Nilsson clearly illustrates with his phosphorescent images that is evidently not the case. As the intense lens aficionado propels brilliantly beyond mere accomplishments to bloom into a fearless, funky, and futuristic artesian who demands all eyes on his work with a click of the shutter. Many mouths are left agape as viewers are often transfixed at the magnitude of Nilsson’s talents as it washes deliciously and ever so coolly across our spirits.

Portraits Of People.


The Paper People.


Celebrity and historical figures find a second life in these paper miniatures by ‘People Too’, the collaborative efforts of Russian designers Alexei Lyapunov and Lena Ehrlich.  Using a range of knives, scissors, tweezers, and other tools on wire and a combination of construction and specialty papers, the team creates not only miniature furniture and figures but also entire sets for the pieces.  Their ‘star’ series represents famous musicians, from Michael Jackson to Queen to Elton John.  Check it out.

Dancing People.


My primary job consists of making people dance.  So obviously seeing people dance is something I thoroughly enjoy.  But this collection I stumbled across by multiple photographers of the most popular styles of dancing, totally blows my mind, check the method of these photos of dancers doing what they do best.

20 Miraculous Photos.


Ever since I posted the spot about National Geographic and some of their most amazing photos, I’ve had people emailing me asking for more photos from that collection.  unfortunately a top 10 doesn’t really go past 10.  So what I did was search the net to find 21 more photos from all around the world that truly astounded me.  The photo above may just seem like 2 simple turtles, but a distinct depiction a pseudo-inspirational underwater scene is something most photographers have never shot before, which is why it stuck out to me.  So check the method below to see what other photos I thought stood out over the web, and let me know what you think.

Attack of the Shadow People


I recently got the chance to peep some insane artwork from the very talented Japanese artist Kumi Yamashita.  Kumi uses small metal objects and the percise positioning of light to create her pieces.

 “Since I was a child I had always been drawn to the beauty in nature. It is complete yet ephemeral and does not require an explanation. Like a warm yellow afternoon light or magnolia flowers glowing under the moonlight. I drew and painted light and shadow that I saw in nature until one day I realized that I could use a real light instead.”

“In my work I find shadow to be the essence of human being and of everything else in the world that most of us don’t recognize. Once at my exhibition an old man stood in front of one of the artwork for a long time. Suddenly he jumped back in shock as he recognized the silhouette of a woman that he didn’t see until now. It made me laugh but at same time I realized how oblivious we all can be. How much we are missing in our lives because of that. In my work object and shadow are equally important. They reveal many faces of reality. Separated objects can be connected in shadow. It shows me that we all are connected and share the same essence. But mostly, I’m drawn to its ephemeral beauty.”Kumi Yamashita
