The Arrival of Spring: iPad Drawings by David Hockney









The Arrival of Spring: iPad Drawings by David Hockney

Beautiful iPad drawings of the woods in Woldgate, East Yorkshire by internationally renowned artist David Hockney.
The color prints are from the iPad. These were drawn in 2011 and first shown at the Royal Academy in 2012, and so I have made just small editions of them. Some took two or three days to draw, and they were all drawn knowing they would be printed bigger. They were deliberately made for printing.
The prints can be seen at Annely Juda Fine Art.

Landspace: Photos by Lisa Wood

Landscape photos with some photo manipulation involved to create rural and unexpected panoramas.
What is our relationship with the natural world in an age when the digital one is available to us anytime, anywhere? I see simplicity, stillness and silence in a wide open space…and no distractions. 
Working only with panoramas in this series, I blend together landscape and abstract photography techniques which allows me to shift between a pure representation and something completely fictional. I start by finding the abstract in a landscape and use software to stitch, edit and otherwise alter the final image.

Silent Storms: Time-lapse by Ole Salomonsen



Silent Storms: Time-lapse by Ole Salomonsen

Beautiful time-lapse of the aurora borealis shot in Tromso, Norway.
Silent Storms is my fourth consecutive aurora/astro film. In a way Silent Storms shows how the night skies can be during the three seasons we have darkness here in northern arctic Scandinavia; autumn, winter and spring. It was filmed in Norway, Finland and Sweden, primarily around the Tromsø area, Norway. 
The "storms" referred to, are the geomagnetic storms which takes place in the atmosphere when a strong solar wind hits earth, often followed by a CME. When a geomagnetic storms takes place, it can last for days, with several substorms causing auroras to appear. Although there has been reports of audible auroras, this has yet to be proven scientifically.

Visually haunting photos of prisons at night bathed only by the eerie glow of electrical lights.
The rural location of many of these prisons keeps them on the periphery of our consciousness. Newly opened prisons utilize modern high technology to control their population in contrast to the stone castles that preceded them. The rapid constructions of new prisons (a result of overcrowding caused by tough mandatory sentencing laws,) are then sold as economic development programs for depressed communities vying to host them.

Invisible Vietnam: Time-lapse by Dmitry Pisanko



Invisible Vietnam: Time-lapse by Dmitry Pisanko

Shot with a camera using an infrared filter, the landscape of Vietnam looks otherworldly. Dmitry was a little bored of the normal time-lapses so he decided to try something different while on vacation in Mui Ne, a coastal resort in the southeast region of Vietnam.

Destruction/Creation: Photos by Chris Slabber










Destruction/Creation: Photos by Chris Slabber

A series of paint and water sculptures with some photo manipulation that were inspired by the works of Alberto Seveso.
The idea behind this series was to show that from Destruction comes Creation. As the paint falls there is a constant point of creation, but at the same time it destroys itself.

Beautiful photos of sunsets taken in California by Michael Shainblum, who is known for his astrophotography.
I seek to capture the extraordinary and the unique. I find beauty in everything from the scale of our Galaxy to the way sunlight hits a glass of water from behind. In filmmaking and photography possibilities are endless. I strive with every project and photography to push the boundaries of what we think is achievable in these mediums.

Paintings of the interior of second-rate motel rooms in muted tones that echoes a bygone era but also evokes feeling of silence and isolation—where time slows to a standstill and you're left alone with your thoughts.
