Pictures From Wonderland - Tim Walker (12 Photos)

Pictures From Wonderland - Tim Walker (12 Photos) | Backstage Rituals | Scoop.it

I've fallen in love with my next favorite photographer. Much like the dreamscapes Annie Leibovitz creates, Tim Walker is one of those people who can create fairytale worlds and make them come alive. As a fashion photographer for Vogue, he's entranced readers with his romantic characters and his extravagant staging. Here he takes us on a walk through his whimsical and often times weird wonderland.

Hyperborea: Amazing Photos by Dan Holdsworth

Hyperborea: Amazing Photos by Dan Holdsworth | Backstage Rituals | Scoop.it

Hyperborea” is an awe-inspiring series shot in Iceland by British photographer Dan Holdsworth.

“The series unfolds like an elaborate set from a science fiction film. Picturing the landscape at night, the eerie lighting effects are not the result of computer manipulation, but rather the natural occurrence of the Northern Lights bathing the barren, volcanic countryside. Photographed with long exposures, Holdsworth’s landscapes develop a supernatural glow, making the mountains and rivers appear alien and atomic; the recognisable features of distant buildings, cars, and passing aeroplanes lend a disturbing familiarity to the apocalyptic scenes.

Self-Portraits Explore Fragmented Distortions of Reality

Self-Portraits Explore Fragmented Distortions of Reality | Backstage Rituals | Scoop.it
Created by photographer Cornelia Hediger, Doppelgänger (which means "double walker" in German) and Doppelgänger II are a beautiful exploration of the self in relation to the world around us. Inspired by the many fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm, the Switzerland-based artist pieces together multiple images into a grid to create slightly misaligned realities and distortions.
The oddly sized and exaggerated components produce compelling narratives about body image, self-worth, and our conscious versus our unconscious thoughts. Hediger steps in front of the camera to perform as her own subject. To build the backgrounds, she often transforms her apartment with fresh paint or wallpaper, new lighting, and intriguing accessories. She can spend anywhere from eight hours to three days shooting a project, and then she non-digitally assembles the fragmented pieces together. In doing so, Hediger creates visually-split personalities set within uncomfortable scenarios.
"The work depicts a…
