Rodney Smith is a well known and celebrated American photographer who has won over 75 awards and participated in numerous exhibitions worldwide.

His ability to capture memorable, iconic shots has certainly played a vital role in his artistic evolution. I particularly love the monochromatic palette he uses for his more surreal and conceptual work.

Mindo Cikanavicius contacted me in order to introduce me to his work and I proudly present him to you. I’m very excited to find out that talented people like Mindo follow the blog!

There is a soft, ethereal essence hidden in Mindo’s visuals. The colors and atmosphere of his image collection are very inspiring & fresh!

A very interesting conceptual photography collection by Finnish photographer Susanna Majuri who captures mysterious water scenes where emotion and color are released and thus a further visual communication with the viewer is provoked.

Every shot looks like a frozen moment from a story, almost like film stills!

Lost America is the name of Troy Paiva’s photographic project in which he has explored and captured the abandoned urban side of America by the light of full moon.

His lighting techniques are simply amazing and the atmosphere of his work makes me search for words! As I read in his site: In addition to countless contributory appearances in print and on the web, Troy’s surrealist night photography has been published in two monographs: "Lost America" in 2003 and the award winning "Night Vision" in 2008. Both books examine the evolution and eventual abandonment of the communities, structures and social iconography spawned during 20th century America's western expansion--and the modern Urban Exploration culture that finds strange comfort in dancing through its ruins.”

Have you ever imagined how would it be if you had 20 or 30 room mates? Well, talented Tim MacPherson embraced this concept and visualized it in an amazing photoshoot.

Enjoy!

A very interesting conceptual photo gallery by Ina Photography where it seems that all of her subjects are captured in unusual poses, thus experimenting a different level of interaction with the environment they find themselves into.

It seems to me that stillness of the moment is what the photographer is attempting to capture. As I read in the intro of her site: “It is a world in which every word spoken speaks just to that moment, every glance given has only one meaning, each touch has no past or no future, each kiss is a kiss of immediacy”.

Breathtaking stylized photography by Erwin Olaf a photographer who lives and works in Amsterdam since the early 80’s and has gained international recognition.
 

His Dawn and Dusk sets are a wonderful example of his atmospheric work and almost magical approach where the viewer is invited to witness 2 different worlds which are conveyed through whiteness and blackness. I absolutely love the baroque settings.

Sensual images that travel your imagination to a different epoch, captured by photographer Tamer Yilmaz.

Warm, earthy tones with a strong dose of luxury and eroticism create a captivating atmosphere.
