  • These photographs are quite beautiful and hypnotic at first. Then they are intense and troubling when I think about the mangled cars they are referencing. Quite a dynamic experience in each photograph. Thanks for sharing.

  • Ruth

    Genius!

  • These are simply beautiful. At first, I thought they were paintings.

  • Alongside Per Bak Jensen, Nicolai Howart is my favourite danish photographer. Both “Dying Birds” and “How to Hunt” has been on display near where I live this spring, and I am constantly amazed by his works. His website is definitely worth checking out – http://www.nicolaihowalt.com/

  • These photos are quite beautiful and intriguing. I almost wish I didn’t know before hand that these were called “car crash studies” and then learned afterwards. It takes away some of the abstractness of the photos when you already have a solid concrete physical thing you can link them too.

“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.”

“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.
