NYC The Way Ludwig Farve Sees It.


Ludwig Favre, Born in France in 1976, in north of Paris. Ludwig Favre is a Photographer specializing in major cities and landscapes of America, raised in Paris, he has created visuals on a variety of media platforms from advertising campaigns to magazine editorials, books, gallerys over the world.  Ludwig Favre is without doubt a man with skills and a keen sensibility for aesthetics and composition.  Favre travels the world documenting its wonders in a way that elevates their look, creating an almost surreal, paint-like quality to the very landmarks we probably take for granted. From the front-facing wall of a building, to national parks, the designs of universities, pristine beaches and cityscapes around the world, click on any of Favre’s projects on his official online portfolio and you’ll be inspired by every shot, each representing a stunning scene of the world like you’ve probably not appreciated as much before.  Here’s his take on the one-and-only New York City.

‘The Diamond Boutique’. By “Creneau International”.


A diamond exhibition has been designed in Maasmechelen Village by Creneau International, and “It is a BEAUT”.  When they were assigned to create a design for a ‘Love the Diamond boutique’, this INCREDIBLE interior instructor gave life to one of the most artistic, colorful, and visually pleasing exhibitions we here at djstormsblog.com have seen to date. 

They started their design with the origin of the diamond: (crystallized) carbon.  Diamonds consist entirely of crystallized carbon. Carbon can only crystallize at extremely high temperatures and pressure; circumstances found 150 kilometers below ground. Crystallized carbon rises to the surface through volcano eruptions, sealed in volcanic rock.

The black rough stone that emerges from the heart of the earth has, after lots of grinding and polishing, a shiny core with many facets and colors. This is exactly what they see in the interior design. The walls are painted black and look like they’ve plastered them with carbon. At the center of the exposition an iridescent volume is shining in an array of colors and facets.  This can not be exemplified by photos.  This is TRULY a sight to behold.

The ‘Generational Gap’.


Seeing as how my birthday was recently, I’ve been hearing many a story from my childhood today.  But listening to this has brought back memories that only people in my age range would associate with.  Once again, the amazing photographer Mike Campau has captured these images perfectly.

Generation gap.

Images of my childhood, when we…
had to get up to change the channel, collected enough stickers to fill a photo album
(oh, and we had photo albums), video games were for rainy days, used film to capture images, cranked up our boom boxes with homemade mixed tapes, ran around with toy guns that looked like the real thing, and had to “dial” a number.

Amazing Mushrooms


Rhodotus Palmatus

Rhodotus Palmatus

Most of my friends are well aware of the fact that I am allergic to mushrooms and that I am therefore somewhat bias towards them. However, there is a surprisingly beautiful and wonderful world waiting to be explored. Most people consider mushrooms to be the small, ugly cousins of the plant kingdom, but these beautiful mushrooms, captured by enthusiastic nature photographers, are a far cry from the ones you find in the woods or your local grocery store.

Most mushrooms, as we know them, are actually just the reproductive structure of the fungus they belong to – their fungal networks expand far further underground, and some fungi don’t even sprout the sort of mushrooms that we’re used to seeing. In fact, depending on your definition of “organism,” the largest living organism in the world is a fungus – there’s a honey mushroom colony in Oregon that occupies about 2,000 acres of land!

Son Doong, The World’s Largest Cave.


 

The Son Doong Cave in Vietnam is the biggest cave in the world. It’s over 5.5 miles long, has a jungle and river, and could fit a 40-story skyscraper within its walls.  But nobody knew any of that until about six years ago.  The recently discovered cave has been touted as the largest in the world, although other caves vie for the title of longest (Mammoth Cave in Brownsville, Kentucky nabs that title with about 400 miles of passageways) and deepest (Krubera Cave in the nation of Georgia).  A local man discovered the cave entrance in 1991, but British cavers were the first to explore it in 2009. Tour company Oxalis has been running trial tours of the cave since two summers ago.  The lucky people who have entered Son Doong so far, like photographer John Spies, have emerged with some amazing photos.

The pearls form over hundreds of years as water drips down, dries up and leaves layers of calcite crystals on grains of sand.

Scientists have discovered never-before-seen plant species around Son Doong’s waterfalls. Oh, and there’s a whole river in there, too.

Reflected Sunsets Through Shattered Mirrors


https://i2.wp.com/interrete.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/sunsets-through-shattered-mirrors-bing-wright.jpeg
New York-based photographer Bing Wright has created a stunning series of images that capture the reflections of beautiful sunsets in broken mirrors.

The method behind his Broken Mirror/Evening Sky series is brilliant in its simplicity. The black lines in the shattered mirrors distort the sunset while retaining all of its splendorous color, making them seem like stained glass windows from a cathedral built by an alien race. According to Bing, the images were created in his studio by projecting his sunset photos at broken mirrors that were angled towards the projection. That way, when he captured the shot, it made it look like he had snapped the photograph through broken glass.
Apparently Wright isn’t aware of the whole bad luck aspect of breaking mirrors, because he broke “a lot” in order to get 16 break patterns good enough to use for the final images. Here are the remaining images from the collection:

Foods In All Their Colors.


kitchen-5 kitchen-4

Photographer and food enthusiast Brittany Wright sets up intricate culinary still lifes that focus primarily on the differentiation of fruits’ and vegetables’ coloration. Wright captures a rainbow of colors in foods ranging from heaps of apples to carrots plucked freshly from the earth. Each photograph focuses on the produce against a stark white background, a way to display the food’s vibrant shades without distraction.

The Seattle-based photographer is fascinated by capturing the aging process of vegetable and fruits, displaying the variety of forms each piece takes during ripening and decay. Wright even includes fruit harvested from her own backyard, photographing raspberries both plump and shriveled.  Wright’s client list is diverse, including brands Dry Soda and Samsung as well as (appropriately) several farms. You can see more colorful gradients and food-based imagery on Wright’s Instagram.

Everyday is Hump Day for Fedor Shmidt


Stylist – 80’s


Sandrine Dulermo & Michael Labica are London based fashion & beauty photographers. The SM duo favours the phantasms which a camera can summon under full light, or in shadows. For about ten years, they have been experimenting to reach  a certain perspective, to show a deep appreciation and concern for what is or could be beautiful. Even more, they strive to make each feeling palpable. Some artists keep placing their trust in them, even though the SM duo fancies changing the looks, using not-so-natural expressions… Avoiding mundane positions in the middle of setting deliberately made wobbly.
