Photos by Ariel Schlesinger. This is, without question, some of the best work I’ve seen on Flickr. Small victories galore!
I like the simple contrast there is used. Also the systematic way the pictures are shot in.
yeh really brilliant, lots of small victories!
Takes my breath away!
These are all great finds!
These are wonderful. Ghost bike makes me sad though.
so good! some of the better stuff i’ve seen on this site in a while, which is saying something
like this guys sense of humour.
I love the one with the tree growing through the fence. Nature is more powerful than metal. haha
All brilliant though the ghost bike is by far my favorite so beautiful and eerie, even if I had not known what it was I get the feeling I would have found the photo very special no matter. It just has something about it.
The Ghost Bike is not this artists invention The Ghost Bike is a widely known and used emblem all arund NYC and oher cities to commemorate cyclists that died in traffic accidents the Bikes are usually located at the site where the death occurred
for most, if not all, of these photos, i feel like she’s poking quiet and gentle fun at how we don’t quite have full control over the things around us.
and the mocking (not a great word to use in this case) is so easy and non-judgmental, it feels as though it’s coming from our mother or an old friend.
i find the experience pleasing, to say the least.
i can tell so much about Ariel’s sense of humour from just a few images
awesomeness! they all are fun and cool, nicely done.
they seem to get better as they go along
this is inspiring!!!
