Henning Klasén is an unusual kind of photographer for these days, his work mainly focuses on wet plate photography which requires an enormous amount of determination, especially now. Given the work produced, I’m guessing it’s worth it. Henning explains on his website that these are wet plate images set on dark stained wood, which on a white background would look like negatives. Personally I find that this use of the frame as an essential element to the piece is fantastic, the images blend beautifully into the wood.

Check out these portraits by Paul Octavious. The project is entitled “Matty On the Moon” which explains the nice vignetting on these, creating a feeling of deserted foreign planet.
I’ve also added a video Paul created from a series of pictures he took at “Look Between” an event where photographers camp out and showcase their work. Sounds sweeeet

These illustrations by Maaike form a series entitled “Dreams”. Maaike inserts disturbing elements in a manner that isn’t always so obvious. I really like how she builds worlds with either outright, or subtle, chaos. I see this as a reflection of some contradictions we live with, and not necessarily only in our dreams.
Reuben’s photographs have fantastic tones, which give a great psychedelic intensity to his work. I’ve selected a few beautiful portraits he’s done, but most of his photography seems to be taken during travels. It’s also awesome because he keeps this cross-processed look to most of his photography, and it feels like they were all taken on an acid trip.
Hannah captures surreal colors in her landscapes, having people standing and staring at the horizon in her pictures adds to the “edge of the world” effect as well. Fantastic work.
On a side note: Hannah also runs the great Imaginary Zine
I like the feel to Berta’s pictures, it’s candid and spontaneous.
Beautiful pictures by Charlotte Boeyden. These shots are from her project called “Dreams” which seems like a natural title for such over-exposed and hazy photography. She also composes her captures in an elusive way, mainly focusing on the magical elements of people and creatures. Divine.
Jon’s creations blend beautiful abstract shapes and patterns with striking colors. I really like this first one, the way the picture is split into different areas each filled completely different colors and patterns, makes me think of colliding galaxies.
