Young photographer Evan James Atwood‘s series ‘Rain Water’ shows off his budding talents with his portraits of young men floating or perhaps drowning in water. There’s been a lot of this underwater, or half in and half out of the water photography lately and Atwood’s contribution is inspiring.

Artist Benedetto Demaio likes to keep it simple in this series where simple juxtapositions and color arrangement rule the day.

He states: “Whenever I find shelter in the colors I feel protected. I feel safe inside colors. Colors are my protection against everything bad. Let the colors live together, be quiet and listen to their voices… It’s a simple and wonderful choir. This is the music I love!” You can see much more of his works over here.

Italian artist Paola Bazz has resurrected the ancient art of the mosaic using only recycled magazines to create these three-dimensional collages.

“The use of printed paper recycled from magazines, newspapers, and catalogues characterises much of my artistic production and is the central theme of my work. Printed paper, with its enormous power of communication, is reinterpreted, re-used and transformed into new works, questioning both the past lives and future possibilities of this material.”

21 Days Later

May 26, 2015 § Leave a comment

Photographer Anand Varma teamed up with the bee lab at UC Davis to create a 60-second clip that shows the entire gestation period from egg to a young bee emerging from the honey-comb.

“The primary goal in photographing the bees was to learn how they interact with an invasive parasitic mite that has quickly become the greatest threat to bee colonies. Scientists have learned to breed mite-resistant bees which they are now trying to introduce into the wild.”
