    pretty. modest. i like the forest, and the folded lawn chairs on the roof.

    • yea i like the chairs on the roof and the first photo looks even better seen larger on her site

  • P

    made me smile.

  • Love all of these but the first one is particularly gorgeous

  • the picture with the chairs on the roof – amazing!

  • Ian McAllister

    I must say, this first image took me by quite a surprise. Why? Because that walking ramp is right outside my bedroom window. Here in Reno, NV we don’t have art. It’s more like aren’t than art. And as I curl up in my cube every morning and throw another blog on the fire, it is quite a rarity that the pretty pictures don’t come from culture catastrophe’s like NYC. Thank you Megan, I did not know my old school library, where the youngdumb once festered wild hormonal possibilities, had turned into such a depressing piece of shit.

    • i think that photo of the ramp is beautiful

  • emily

    you have to look for a while befor you notice all the little small things – ian you sound a wee bit like a complete philistine.

  • Laura

    It’s a photo of a RAMP. And a photo of a window a 6 year old could have taken, with minimal thought put into composition or even subject mattter. It’s photographers like this that make the art world a joke.

    • sceneitall

      It is what you make of it Laura, as is LIFE.

  • Kelci McIntosh

    Dear Laura,

    if you are going to criticize photography by plainly saying that anyone can compose that image is completely irrelanvent. i want to see your work and as a photographer i want to maturely discuss viewpoints rather than just give a negative critique cause in reality you aren’t showing anything better or bringing any new feedback to what could evolve her work or good points you see.

    dont be bitchy cause your jealous.

    Laura, instead of jumping to some rude conclusion and using the cliché phrase that child could’ve taken that photo, why don’t you make an educated critique as to why you don’t like the image. We’re all respected and respectful artists here (for the most part) and it’s out of context to give such a useless critigue. Take your sassy, unhelpful remarks elsewhere, it’s people like you we need less of in the “art world”.

  • Emily

    These have proved a pretty controversial set of photographs
    I know this is a cliché, but beauty really is in the eye of the beholder, so the way you interpret these is, in the end, up to you. But normally a photographer dose not create what they photograph but translates the mood and aesthetics of a place into an image, something that Megan Matthers has done very well. Even if you don’t like the subjects/scenery to which she has chosen to apply her talent, maybe you could see it as a dry comment about life… maybe… or something like that

    Emily,

    Beautifullyand perfectly said.

One of the things that makes Booooooom unique is the encouraging comments people send back and forth on these monthly submission posts. If you’re going to share your work please take an extra second to leave a nice comment on someone else’s work!

Voting up work is like high-fiving that person, and it also helps us see what work you guys like! Remember, even if your work isn’t featured on the main site these posts can send some decent traffic to your portfolio! The link below the guidelines at the bottom will open up this full post, simply scroll down and use our commenting system to submit your work.

 

Submission guidelines:

 1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.

Brilliant Pixelated Wood Sculptures by Artist Hsu Tung Han

Taiwanese artist Hsu Tung Han creates incredible figurative sculptures that appear to be dissolving into a field of pixels. Approaching each piece like a puzzle, Han carefully plans through sketches and clay models before the final wood segments are carved. See more images below.
