  • I can sense an “is it art” debate coming…

    • pop’d

      but the photos are great, nonetheless.

  • I love this type of work it reminds me of volatile values one of the images in a series I created (Feelings of Empathy) at dapedesigns.co.uk where I deconstruct the human head and leave the essence of feelings. Thanks for bringing these images to (light) they blow traditional stills into the decade they belong…,booooooommmm Art4Aart or ART4ARTsSAke respond.

  • Dave

    • Caroline

      The flowers were frozen in liquid nitrogen before he exploded them.

    Art! So much so. They remind me more of paintings than photographs.

  • Audrey

    Does anyone know if these images are published in a book? do you have the name of the book? i love his work and am not sure where these are published.

    There is no debate. This is basically Neo-Surrealism at its best, It’s beautiful.

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”
