  • 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

    Its art.

  • wow!! these are absolutely stunning

  • yummy yummy yum yum yum

  • Definitely art, they remind me of Pollock’s paintings with a twist.

  • emily

    its photography.

    nope, just being difficult. its art, its fresh and i love it!
    im also wondering how the made them explode with out charring them…?

    • Caroline

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

  • Charlie

    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.
    thanks

  • Ana

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

Director Jordan Peele’s Alternate Ending to “Get Out” (Leaked Video Clip)

Spoiler Alert: Do not click below if you haven’t seen “Get Out” yet! I wasn’t completely mind-blown by this movie but I really enjoyed it and I’m excited to see what director Jordan Peele makes next (apparently his next “social thriller” is slated for 2019). I don’t want to say too much but I thought the end of the film was unexpected and satisfying. Now an alternate version has leaked and it’s interesting because it’s also not what I thought was going to happen. Watch the full clip below.
