    amazing

  • tobi~

    so realistic, that’s amazing

    • haha! i thought these are all photos until i read your comment.. i thougt so, kind of worried by the way because some of the locations are not the best to make an open fire :D

  • lapetitefaon

    93heb9rb32!!! what on earth?!!!!! these are INSANE!!! I love them so much. Gorgeous work.

  • sofia

    these are amazing, yet i always wonder with this kind of work – why painting, and not photography? these are obviously painted FROM photographs…how does the paint itself work towards the piece in terms of its subject matter? Is the artist just showing off and paintings make more than photographs?

  • OMAR.

    I think that, the artist is able to capture with paint, something the camera wont be able to, Besides his admiration of the photograph itself?

    pretty insane stuff either way.

  • zanez

    it’s not perfect realism, but that fire just has something..

  • ooh awesome. there’s definitely a quality that won’t carry over in a photograph. love #’s 1 & 5 and the orange creeping up into the sky on the last one.

  • GHAd

    These are really well done. I love the colours. I will get flamed for this (uh-oh..no pun intended)but I can’t help think Lord Of The Rings…I know!! I’m sorry…

    Great work and what devotion to spend that much time rendering them so much.

  • Klay

    These are amazing. Burning furniture is a major part of my life and this captures the beauty of it perfectly. I would love to see some night ones though.

  • The fact that these are paintings and not photographs is unbelievable. They look to realistic. Amazing!

  • I agree with Sofia. These are amazingly realistic, for sure, but I think I would really love them even if they were “just” photographs. I’m sure the artist has his reasons for painting as opposed to photographing, but I already find the concept and composition both quirky and melancholic.

    I feel like the painted quality makes it look “cheap” in a retro billboard/advertisement kinda way. Maybe it’s intended?

  • i wonder if he is a pyro. amazing stuff though.

  • the artist really captured the heat! i thought it was a photograph at first too. excellent.

  • cannot believe these are paintings ! wow

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.
