    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’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?

    • http://www.katemccgwire.com Kate MccGwire

      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

Kagaya1

Japanese photographer and digital artist Yutaka Kagaya happened to be in the right place at the right time, capturing what looks like a rainbow-blasting airplane flying above Oshino-Mura, Yamanashi Prefecture. While the effect can be explained as a form of cloud iridescence, that’s still pretty amazing! Check out a spectacular close up shot below!
