Photographer Creates Fungus and Destroys Photos with Beautiful Results

Korean photographer Seung-Hwan Oh began experimenting with mold and film after reading a BBC article about it. He takes photos and stores the film in a warm and wet environment to encourage fungi to grow. Apparently only one out of ever 500 frames of medium format color reversal film turns out properly so it’s a rather expensive creative process. Take a look at more images from his series “Impermanence” below.

“My Chemical Romance

 

These images by Korean artist Jee Young Lee win the award for most elaborate self-portraits created without any digital manipulation. The artist spends several weeks at a time transforming her studio space into these incredible sets inspired by events from her life or Korean fables.

Jee Young Lee is the designer, performer, and photographer. She does everything! I do find it a bit sad though, that after all her hard work we can only experience these as flat images.

See lots more images of her work below!

Steve Kim

I quite like these bizarre paintings by Steve Kim. Very interesting style, lots of negative space – kinda like seeing the early stages of an Ian Francis painting.
