*HELP FUND THIS KICKSTARTER PROJECT* (ends 4/10)
I’ve always had a fascination with architectural lines and how they interact with one another. In April of 2012, I visited Manhattan for the first time. I was immediately struck with the way that the modern metropolis skyline interacts and connects with everything around it.
I would like the opportunity to shoot in New York City once again capturing its stunning urban landscapes. Using these images, I will create a book that will explore the reality and unreality of how those lines intersect.
My book will feature my unique composite images that I create using a variety of photo editing software tools. I use multiple exposure images that fold onto themselves, transcend reality and find beauty within complexity.
To make this book a reality, I will need financial backing for travel, the expenses incurred while exploring the city and book publishing costs. My goal is for $5000. Anything above that goal will be put toward equipment upgrades which would enhance future pictures.
Has Venice’s famous Grand Canal completely frozen over? Not quite. Though it may appear so in these photos, they’re actually the clever work of art director Robert Jahns (@nois7 on Instagram). He’s taken photos shot by others, like Venice’s Piazza San Marco by Luis Manuel Osorio Fernando, and Russia’s Lake Bakail taken by Daniel Kordan, and spliced them together to create a surreal composite that looks almost believable. Though Venice’s famous canals have frozen in the past, as they did most recently in 2012, they’ve never turned completely solid like this.

Fine, detailed and subtle animated artwork created by New York illustrator Rebecca Mock. Apparently the animated gif back to stay, gradually more and more people are exploring this old format and customers asking for shouting. Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.
