I was very happy to receive Joseph’s email some time ago.

He communicated with me in order to give me his positive feedback on the blog and also share the work of 2 artists. Thank God he included his own link in his signature as well – I must admit that I am completely enamored of his work! Conceptual & original but most importantly expressive and emotive.

Joseph Newsome is still very young yet the images he captures through his lens have an unexpected maturity.

“Pet Cloud” has gained wide recognition in the online inspiration blogs and there is no mystery why! Playful, original and so fresh, Michael Casker inspires us with his imaginative and dreamy visuals.

The photographer has attended Brooks Institute of Photography and currently lives and creates in New York.

I discovered Black X List Photography just today and I was fascinated with the High Peak College urban exploration! A very large abandoned site where the current dark and trashed spaces used to be livable and full with young people. The controversy between the past and present makes this project even more interesting and conceptual, along with the sharp eye of the photographer who captures these images, giving them a dreamy, nostalgic essence. Furthermore, the crisp depiction of textures and playful light effects are a pure visual pleasure!

Marcio Napoli’s travel and street photography is a magnificent example of how engaging and powerful real life images can be.

Just look at these photographs and notice that it seems like the photographer is peeking on his subjects. Check out his full portfolio for an overview of his inspiring work.

The Mannequins Series is a personal project of photographer Jerome Abramovich from Montreal, which I sincerely loved at first sight!

Underground, striking conceptual shots that reflect the eccentricity of his characters / objects. You definitely have to explore his portfolio closer!

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.”

Kyle Spears is a fine art photographer with a growing interest in urban shots. An inspiring balance between deep tones and lighting is apparent in his cityscapes.

From my point of view, his collection reflects a somehow dramatic and intense atmosphere and thus, an interesting visual communication takes place.

 
 
In Argijale’s photography one can very clearly distinguish the artist’s attempt to experiment with space and movement. Open space plays a vital role in his frames. His subjects often appear blurred or distorted.

As a viewer, I see the photographer “flirting” with various existential and philosophic ideas which he strives to capture through his lens. An intriguing visual collection should always carry a concept and this is why I like Argijale’s work in the first place!


Take a look at his full collection on flickr.

A lomography enthusiast, Jean Christophe Sartoris and his Holga present the Metropolis photoseries. Breathtaking shots buildings and very interesting textures are captured in these awe striking urban visuals in black and white.

 
I particularly like the variety in perspective and the way the artist uses empty space.

Recognized as one of the most talented artists in the field of humanist photography, Willy Ronis is known by his ability to convey waves of nostalgia for the urban community of 40’s and 50’s through his black and white images.

" Dividing my time between assignments and playing truant by image-hunting was difficult, but in the last account it protected me from routine, and I have experienced by turns periods of anguish and moments of extraordinary happiness. Je ne regrette rien" [as quoted by the artist]
