  • This is quite impressive – as feathers often are. Does Kate MccGwire make feather sculptures that she later photographs or does she create all of this digitally?

  • Hi Davidkus
    Yes they are site-specific sculptures made from feathers that I then photograph. ( not digital)

  • i’m such a huge fan of Kate’s work… it really blows me away.

  • These are really fantastic. I thought they were snake scales at first.

  • Hanna

  • lapetitefaon

    gorgeous!

  • NAMBO

    For some reason I get the slightest feeling as if it’s part of some kind of scary movie! haha

  • Congrats! but i also like the stigma series: sophisticated in color and composition.

  • Feather boa, plume (plumage) of smoke… nice.

  • Rain

    Definitely have a nightmarish aura to them, but very cool.

  • I’ve been a fan of her and seeing her new works, gives me the same feeling when I discovered her works for the first time. Stunning.

  • How to you go about collecting such large quantities of feathers?

    • I collect the feathers in many different ways – you may want to check out a short film about my work which explains some of the processes. Kate

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.
