‘Doublefaced’ is an ongoing series of experimental portraits by Berlin-based artist Sebastian Bieniek where a second face is painted with make-up on the side of the model’s face. While the idea seems ridiculously simple, the actual result is a super bizarre, off-kilter series of photos that will give you the heebie jeebies.
Ben Zank is not your average 22 year-old photographer. This New York youngster will do anything for the perfect shot. And we mean anything! Zank captures the most amazing series of conceptual photographs with himself as the subject, creating strange, melancholic and sometimes surreal images that capture the viewer’s imagination.
Artist and photographer Zeren Badar has an intriguing way of creating compelling art. He does it by accident. Ok, so that may not be completely accurate, but as you see in this series of photos titled “Accident Series”, Badar explores a peculiar combination of photography, painting and collage to create new and unexpected images. In this photography project, he puts together unlikely combinations to generate a 3D feel with found objects, food and cheap old paintings to generate a completely new type of image.
Today’s unusual post features Japanese artist Baku Maeda and his killer moustache. Based in Sapporo, an illustrator by trade, Baku Maeda expresses tremendous energy and power with his work, showing us what’s possible to achieve with humble, unassuming materials like ice and ribbon. Maeda is a classic doodler – but be sure to look between the lines here so you don’t miss a thing.
Christopher Rimmer is a Melbourne-based fine art photographer who’s forthcoming exhibition, Sign of Life, is a visual examination of the tragedy of two abandoned towns slowly being buried by the sands. The images were shot on location in the diamond mining towns of Elizabeth Bay and Kolmanskop in South Western Namibia. Local institutions such as the hospital, ballroom, power station, theatre, casino, ice factory and the first x-ray-station in the Western Hemisphere are all shown in a surreal and almost unrecognisable state.
I’ve always had a genuine fascination with the concept of turning trash into treasure, so today’s post really hits the spot for me. San Francisco based photographer Laurie Frankel teamed up with Diane Gatterdam to create a fascinating series of still life images titled ‘Recycled Beauty’. The final result is nothing short of spectacular, capturing the mood resembling the paintings by Dutch masters.
