Artist Spotlight: Brenda Biondo

biondo7

A wonderful series of abstract compositions by photographer Brenda Biondo. Inspired by art theories of colour and perception, Biondo creates aesthetics akin to abstract paintings by folding and cutting printed images of the sky, and then re-photographing these images against the actual sky.

Taking advantage of natural light and atmospheric colour, the result is a kind of optical illusion created entirely without post-production manipulation. See more images from “Paper Skies” below.

A beautiful series of photographs featuring the street vendors of Hanoi by photographer Loes Heerink. In order to get the desired shots (all captured from above) Heerink got up at 4am and positioned herself atop various bridges throughout the city, sometimes waiting for hours for vendors to pass by. By the looks of Heerink’s Kickstarter the project will soon be expanded into a book! See more portraits below.

burton1

In “Skin Deep” photographer Steven Burton digitally removes the tattoos of ex-gang members, creating dramatic before-and-after style portraits that offer many subjects a glimpse of themselves they haven’t seen for decades. Not only do the images elicit strong emotional responses and personal reflections, the transformative series raises broader questions about social stigma and how we perceive others.

Burton has launched a Kickstarter to turn the photographs into a book. Check out more incredible portraits below.
