  • The first is awesome, and the landscape these are placed in is killer.

  • Very interesting concept!

  • Are these photos of paintings or this some kind of Photoshop voodoo?

    • with the image within image works, he shoots the area (eastern washington), returns home to make large prints, returns to the same scene and constructs the new piece to be photographed. other works involve merely moving parts of the scene, like this pile of dirt which was carefully rotated and rebuilt in place… http://chrisengman.com/index.php?p=dust-to-dust&w=dust-to-dust stellar work!

      • Ok, now it makes more sense. Thanks!

  • I am always inspired by the creativity show on this blog!
    Have a great day.
    Take care,

    rené magritte?

  • Nambo

    BADASS!!!!!! :D

  • These photos are great and your blog is pure inspiration :)

  • These are really captivating, trying to understand them, I love how it looks like the canvases have been painted, it took me a while to see the second board in the first photo. I love that you have to figure the images out, you can perceive them in your own way, as to how they work. My favourites are the first and last simply for the way they make you think about them a bit longer than the other two to understand them. I really like the setting chosen too.

  • munch

    is anybody else thinking Storm Thorgerson?

  • he kinda rules right now in these parts of the NW, hard to fault that, he rocks it

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”

See the rest of the series below.
