    The Badlands of the American West are typically a harsh, dry place with little to no vegetation. But when any amount of water finally arrives, the landscape changes remarkably. 

    In his latest book, More Than a Rock, photographer Guy Tal captures the rare blooms of wildflowers that arrive after a rare storm.

    You’re photos are so cool, they’ve got to wear shades!

    Pop the lenses out of a pair of old sunglasses and turn them into a summer-y frame.

    Whoa, this is awesome! Maybe I should make something like this for S, since a lot of our dates have been spent at the beach!

    French photographer Laurent Lavender has a delightful ongoing series that uses the moon as a subject in a unique way. 

    By playing with perspective, Lavender is able to create the illusion of the moon being nothing more than a simple prop.

    Bing Wright (b.1958, USA) - Broken Mirror/Evening Sky (2012)

    Broken Mirror/Evening Sky is a new series of striking landscape photographs by New York based artist Bing Wright. Departing from his usual pared down images in grey palettes, Wright offers us moving skyscape photographs of richly colored sunsets reflected onto broken mirrors. This new body of work marks his first return to color photography in almost a decade.

    The images are meticulously constructed through a combination of traditional documentary landscape photographs and the subtle manipulations of an image in the studio. Wright photographs sunsets, then projects the images onto mirrors he has broken in the studio. The mirrors are small, measuring just 14 x 11 inches. The artist re-photographs the reflection and then enlarges the image into a large scale format. This beautiful series incorporates Wright’s recurring themes of abstraction and representation – a contrast he masterfully balances by grounding these shards of images into a bold structure. While more abstract than some of his earlier works, the composition carries a narrative that enables the viewer to collectively experience the beauty of the sunsets the artist has captured, while facilitating an individual interpretation of the emotion they imbue. We are presented with pictorial images, fragmented and in disrepair – a reminder that everything beautiful is flawed and imperfect. Bing’s signature large format lends these images symmetry and exact composition, giving them a majestic quality. (src. James Harris Gallery)

    Photographer Austin Tott pairs the small with the grandiose in his series Tiny Tattoos. The delightful images feature hand-drawn body art that’s positioned against a background from which they visually reference.
