Against Wind and Tide: Photos by Nicolas Evariste








Against Wind and Tide: Photos by Nicolas Evariste

Beautiful long-exposures of Normandy, located in the northwest of France.
Photography is my means of expression and escapement. Through my pictures, I don't necessarily try to show things as they are, but to share a personal and artistic vision of what surrounds us. The nature theme is recurrent in most of my series, but I like to explore new horizons.

Incredibly detailed drawings of a spread for an upcoming book that reminds me of 13th century illuminated manuscripts but with a modern take using cartoon characters populating a forest.

Beautiful photos of snails in captivating poses taken by amateur photographer Vyacheslav Mischenko in a forest near his home city of Berdychiv, Ukraine.
I spent a lot of my childhood out and about in forests as my family are big wildlife lovers so I'm always on the lookout for unusual animal shots which I can capture. I don't like taking just simple macro shots as you can find them everywhere so I always try to create pictures which I hope people will love.

Americana: Photos by Joel Seaman









Americana: Photos by Joel Seaman

A series of photographs created over a three year period which shows animals coexisting with the detritus around them. The series explores the complex relationship between man and nature but is also deeply rooted by different genres.
These pictures are rooted in a gestalt of memory of traditional landscapes, still lifes, sporting illustration, and advertising imagery. They are informed by years of wandering in and being absorbed by museums, images, artifacts, history, and the expression of understandings of our relationship with the natural world.
You can see more of Joel's work here.

Approach to Manhattan: Paintings by Enrique Santana








Approach to Manhattan: Paintings by Enrique Santana

Paintings of urban landscapes depicting views of Manhattan as seen from the water, a divergence from the traditional representation of the city in art.
This focus provides not only an esthetic counterpoint, but also the dynamic relationship between the fluidity and energy of water against the silent power of shoreline buildings.

Paintings of vegetables inspired by illustrated books from childhood.
Ever since I was a small child, I liked two things: to paint, and to flip through the pages of illustrated books of insects, plants, and animals. Until I learned that, centuries ago, scholars took painters with them on their research trips around the world, I never thought of connecting the two. I immediately thought, “How wonderful it would be if I could spend my days traveling around the world drawing plants and insects. ” Instead of going out for adventures and finding exciting new species, I found beauty in ordinary vegetables and trees on a street. A common butterfly in my backyard became much more valuable than a rare undiscovered species.
