Earthglance

Taking shots with Google Earth and putting them online has been done multiple times. Earthglance takes the prize though. The execution in this compilation of earth screenshots is beyond belief. With some pictures it’s hard to say what you’re looking at. You’re staring down at airports, icy mountains and salt fields from a perpective where some context can be missed. Take your time to scroll through 30+ pages of high-res jaw droppers via the link. Earth is beautiful.

The Third Day

Henrik Kohler went on a quest to the sources of our food. The german photographer visited areas in Spain, Holland, Germany and the United States where standardized products flourish under industrial conditions. With solely (cost)efficiency in mind, one of the involved parties will always be the victim. Whether that be the animal, plant or human. Someone has to pay for this way of production. Can we still call these products of nature when we control so many factors in the process?

Ecce Homo

In the photo series Ecce Homo Berlin-based photographer Evelyn Bencicova shot naked bodies in a quite artistic way. Ecce Homo, Latin for “behold the man”, is a common artistic motif with Biblical origins that has since been expanded to include depictions of violence and war.

Coal Mining

Bernhard Lang is a German photographer who uses various techniques. One of the most astounding must be the aerial photography he does. His most recent series is one on coal mining. Lang tries to show us how mankind knowingly reshapes earth to improve their lives. On a more positive note: it’s wonderful to see the layering of our soil in one shot. The crane installations act as main characters in this silent series.

Salt

Emma Phillips’ photographs of a salt mine in the Nullarbor Plain of Western Australia make the familiar look otherworldly. The landscapes, featuring towering pyramids of white in muted tones, are studies in simplicity and abstraction. She likes pictures with not much in them and not too many distractions. Phillips came across the salt mine by chance but immediately saw an opportunity for a series.

Relics of Technology

The seed for the Relics of Technology project started when Jim found a brick cell phone at a thrift store. Since finding it, similar bits and pieces of old technology and media kept grabbing his attention. Most of the technology have now been downsized to fit in the palm of our hand. These photos are reminders that progress had a price and our efforts have an expiration date.

Intolerable Beauty

Exploring the darker sides of his home country, Chris Jordan found a strange form of beauty in the drain of mass consumption. Guilty as everyone, he is grasped by these reflections of modern society. “Collectively we are committing a vast and unsustainable act of taking, but we each are anonymous and no one is in charge or accountable for the consequences.”

Skymetric

The word skymetric is a construction composed by: sky and -metric (geometric). The subject highlights the decontextualization of places and architectural spaces in order to alter the natural structure. These places considered have in common the fact to be all completely square, regular and schematic, so achieving geometric shots in a minimalist context, where the simplicity and cleanliness reign supreme.

Places

Mark Bramley’s pictures raise a feeling of desolation. In each picture there are obvious clues that indicate mankind was here someday, but they seem long gone. The places where Bramley (UK) takes his photos seem to concentrate in the USA. His style is peculiar. Although people could always be around the corner, he never tends to focus on them. Instead, empty landscapes or objects tell the story humans don’t.

Norilsk

These photographs were taken along the outskirts of the city Norilsk. Life here collides with urban sprawl, and the fragility of nature. Within the constancy of human presence, Gronsky photographs recreational moments deep in forested areas or open beaches, in secluded niches or general gathering places.

Transformation

Roman Sakovich is a UK based Photographer. His work investigates the development of an evolving post-Soviet society and the attendant cultural changes in a progressive world. It awakened our interest due to its extravagant clean style and his stunning sceneries. Although they show virtually ‘normal’ urban places, they mediate a special atmosphere and dramatic unique.

A Van in the Sea

In 2011 Alessandro decided to buy an old (but super well constructed) motorhome, Hymer 1983 and move it along the south coast of Portugal in some of his favorite places along the european coast. He did that to be able to realise his personal photography project. This is a small series of images Alessandro took when going to bed over the course of 2013.
