Bedu - a Photography Series by Jim Mangan

Bedu - a Photography Series by Jim Mangan

The mixing of bodies and nature is a very familiar theme in Jim Mangan’s photography, and something he explores in many wonderful ways throughout his portfolio. Bedu   takes us away from the previously snowy and foresty landscapes and literally into the  desert sands. Each one of Jim’s photos frames the sand movement in a different relation to the bodies – sometimes empowering them, adding gracefulness, or even giving the impression of decomposition.

Fluorescent Clay Sculptures by Jordy van den Nieuwendijk

Fluorescent Clay Sculptures by Jordy van den Nieuwendijk

These sculptures by Jordy van den Nieuwendijk stand out for their wonderfully striking colors and shapes, but also in regards to the rest of Jordy’s work which is mostly two dimensional (with several exceptions). Yet however dimensionally these sculptures stand out, they are not in discordance with the direct, bold and strikingly colourful nature of Jordy’s drawings.

Graphic designer and illustrator Bryce Wilner has a versatile and incredibly imaginative portfolio. Alongside creating such beautiful abstractions as seen here (and building a GIF-based website to complement the series), he also publishes books full of fascinating visuals. His publications interrogate such improbabilities as what earth would look like when human beings abandon their bodies or living in a post-human era.

Collodion Photography by Kristen Hatgi

 

Collodion Photography by Kristen Hatgi

Stunning portraits and nude photography made by  Kristen Hatgi using the collodion photographic process. The divine surroundings in which Kristen captures her photos combined with her models’ sensual and theatrical poses really breath life back into this century old process of making images.

Saint Petersburg photographer Ilona Olkonen captures sensual and vibrant portraits throughout her portfolio. I love the particular tendency she has to focus on her models’ beautiful hands, so I chose my favorites.

Graphic designer, illustrator and photographer Ruben Accou (who is academically certified in all three disciplines) captures bewildering, sharply textured photos. His portraits have a slightly awkward vibe which I find great – they make you look twice and wonder whether there is meaning in the seemingly chaotic arrangement of things surrounding the models.
