  • very simple images yet astounding!

  • they’re all very quiet

  • agree.. you can almost feel the atmospehere on these photos.

  • These really remind me of the film Let the Right One In. Nice atmosphere!

    • Rose

      That was my first thought too! Loved the movie, love these photographs.

    • Gosh, I thought that too. Chilling pictures..

      • i still have to see that movie, my sister recommended it!

    • rachillin

      I haven’t seen this one… but I caught the movie vibe before reading these comments.

  • love the quietness of these photographs.

  • Anny

    The first thing that came to mind when I saw the first photo was a scene from The Memory Keeper’s Daughter, if anyone’s read that.

  • this makes me think of Let the right one in.

  • rachillin

    It reminds me of a movie at first and I expect someone or an animal to walk into the picture.. I really love these for how much it made me think. Maybe I’m just getting greedy with the pipe though, haha!

    They appear kind of lonely after a second look.
    Beautiful

Photographer Daniel Ranalli Spends Two Decades Capturing Snail Trails

“Spiral #9” (1996)

 

Massachusetts-based photographer Daniel Ranalli has spent more than 20 years on his “Snail Drawings,” a series which consists of one image of neatly configured snails and a second image of the unique patterns made when the snails were left to their own devices.

While a simple enough concept, Ranalli sees the project as a reflection of the inherent randomness of life and our inability to control the results or elements of a situation no matter how hard we might try! See more of Ranalli’s work below or on display at Classic Photographs Los Angeles January 21-22.
