  • lapetitefaon

    Holy ahhhh I want to write a list of curse words to describe my level of disbelief but I’ll censor myself OH MY GOD THESE ARE UNREAL!!!

  • I am very interested in this kind of work right now, but I can’t help but think… can’t he celebrate the beauty of nature by going and and photographing the real thing. I understand it is an art and that he is very talented, it is just ironic.

    • if he did, i wouldn’t be as excited about it!

      • True, and I probably wouldn’t have come across his work at all. I’m just saying.

        Ha, it kind of reminds me of food styling. Looks so good, but don’t eat it! Can’t run through his field though I know we all want to. But that proves his point, he constructs these worlds we want to be apart of (or in the case of the tornado, think are so beautiful).

      • this is why i want the Fantastic Mr Fox (making of movie) book. this kind of stuff is so amazing

  • @jeffhamada that’s funny I was about to say how this reminds me of a Wes Anderson film, so much detail.

  • Kim

    I LOVE this!!
    It reminds me of what some folks used to do for movie backgrounds. I kind of wish we wouldn’t depend upon computers so much and use our hands to create with. Sometimes technology is not always the best way to go.

  • Fascinating work. Love the behind-the-scenes glimpse into his studio.

  • Amazing!
    I loooove it.

“15/20” by Photographer Neta Dror

 

In 2011, Tel Aviv-based photographer Neta Dror photographed 6 Israeli teens, returning 5 years later to photograph them each again. Now in their 20s, Dror notes that the biggest change isn’t physical but emotional:

“It was incredible to see how differently they presented themselves to me and to the camera: all grew more confident and were less willing to expose themselves. It was clear they were now more aware of who they are and what part of themselves they wanted to show.”

Click here to see our previous post of Dror’s work. More images from “15/20” below.

“Copy Kitty” by Illustrator Kyung Me

Illustrator Kyung Me explores the various ways we construct false identities in romantic relationships with a series of drawings surrounding a character named Copy Kitty. Going to great lengths to be accepted and adored, Copy Kitty gradually descends into a vortex of fantasy and paranoia. Check out more images from Me’s elaborate narrative series below.
