Washington-based photographer Angela Kelly had the brilliant idea of blowing bubbles during the polar vortex that was freezing most of America. With the help of her 7 year old son they took these incredible images of the bubbles freezing and then melting!

“Are we ever too old to play with bubbles?” Kelly asks rhetoricaly. “I really think that this is the most fun, unique and beautiful series I’ve done yet!”

Temporary Sculptures by Environmental Artist

Ephemeral Environmental Sculptures Evoke Cycles of Nature nature land art

These temporary sculptures were created by environmental artist and photographer duo, Martin Hill and his partner Philippa Jones.

Hill speaking about the use of circles:

The use of the circle refers to nature’s cyclical system which is now being used as a model for industrial ecology. Sustainability will be achieved by redesigning products and industrial processes as closed loops—materials that can’t safely be returned to nature will be continually turned into new products. Of course this is only one part of the redesign process. We need to use renewable energy, eliminate all poisonous chemicals, use fair trade and create social equity.

Surreal Portraits of a Powerless and Lost Young Man

New York-based photographer Ben Zank creates intriguing portraits rich with surreal elements. The Bronx native’s portfolio boasts countless images, each with its own narrative. The fine art photographer produces scenes filled with mystery and oddities that allow the viewer to form their own context for the respective images, giving some sort of backstory that has led up to this point.

Zank’s subjects are often himself in dapper attire, oddly lost and playfully searching through his environment for an undisclosed something. The young photographer, whose work clearly takes inspiration from Rodney Smith and husband-wife duo Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison, tells us, “This set of photographs represents my current and past emotions. Being in control, being powerless, stuck, being free again, etc. Think of it like a power struggle.”

Invisible Mother of the 1800’s

‘This was a practice where the mother, often disguised or hiding, often under a spread, holds her baby tightly for the photographer to insure a sharply focused image.’

I am so happy this creepy trend stopped!
