The Beauty of Flooded Architecture

Thursday 03.01.2012 , Posted by

Imagine the sea rising above the worlds most breathtaking architecture: our cathedrals, our museums that hold our masterpieces from centuries ago, being destroyed with the rage of crashing waves. Imagine the ocean flooding an entire opera house or a swamped ballroom with delicate Swarvoski chandeliers dangling above the water. Spanish artist Pablo Genovés uses a collage style mixed with digital photography to give us a different perspective on an apocalyptic future. It makes one consider the fact that our art and our architecture is fragile – regardless of our intentions and actions to preserve the past. You can view more of Genovés creations on his website and in exhibitions around Europe and the U.S. [Read more...]

Have you ever wondered what parent you look more like? Whose eyes do you have, what about your nose, or your chin? Maybe you think you and your siblings look nothing alike.

The Past in Color: Bringing Old Photographs to Life

Wednesday 01.18.2012 , Posted by

Did you ever stop to think that the black and white photographed world of the past actually occurred in color just like today? Sanna Dullaway, an artist from Sweden, gave us a glimpse of what this colorful world looked like. Dullaway took old, iconic pictures and colorized them using Photoshop. She cleaned up the photos and converted them from black and white to her own interpretation of what the colors may have looked like. “I did not want to ‘improve’ nor ‘replace’ the photos I DID colourize as some of you may think. I just wanted to show you a new perspective of the black & white old world, it used to be in colour, too. I thought famous photos would touch most hearts,” Dullaway said on her deviantArt profile, Mygrapefruit. [Read more...]

Tuesday 12.20.2011 , Posted by

Wait… he probably invented vinyl! [Read more...]

Classic Photos: The Warped Reality of Robert Funk

Thursday 11.17.2011 , Posted by

Long before the present day, when every image seems to be Photoshopped, Robert Funk was creating surreal images that bent reality without even leaving it. The previously New York based photographer captured images around the world in the 70′s, juxtaposing real life with toys, miniatures, paintings, cutouts & “plastic thingies.” He pioneered the photography of toys, an unusual subject for the time, and was featured in many magazines of the day including Popular Photography. Often his images used large flat cut-outs of magazines or even his own art, interacting with the environment around them while their shiny surfaces reflected the surrounding light. His work took him around the world, sometimes seeing him haul large cut-outs in his luggage or creating new ones on location. [Read more...]
