Talk the Talk and Walk the Walk

So I usually dis more then praise so here are some photos I have collected, unfortunately I don't always get the artist, that I think are beautiful and successful. 

the simplistic and calmness is offset by the stairs that disrupts the white, making a great composition. 

a play with real vs. not real images, aka the back ground vs. the tree. this has great color communication. something that I find to be very very important in photography.

breaking the idea of traditional square flat image, and using the image its self as a way to dictate the shape. 

great composition and color. 

the lines of the swing become lines of a drawing, and turn this image into a abstract drawing. 

playing on real life color and pattern that occurs in the world. there are many strange occurrences like this that happen in the world that we look over. 


playing with what our eyes tell us we are seeing and what we are really seeing. we trust the image and the photographer can use that to fool us. 


I saw this show and although the photos where much like this one, not disney, this one was the best. it plays off of our ideas of marriage, life, women's rolls, and how we think our fantasy characters are perfect and everything we are not. 

time laps of people walking. disturbing and stunning 


beautiful play of traditional portraits. 

notice the green chairs, they make this image work! that green offsets this red and turns this image from just a normal photo of a decapitated theater into a stunning and haunting photograph.

image inside an image which one is real and which one is placed? is it a time laps or two places that look alike? 

can't love this photo any more then I do! 
the feet are the best part!

  1. My favorites are the crucifix lost in the mouth of a belly storm. It talks to me because the sky can mean so many wonderful things like God punishing us for pollution or the strength of Jesus in an evil story. It has so many important ways to read it and thats what makes it good for us to use. This i can imagine printed huge in a gallery and will delight the artist in me.
