My Haunting Series Captures Self-exploitation And The Capitalist World We Live In

My Haunting Series Captures Self-exploitation And The Capitalist World We Live In | ART  | Conceptual Photography & Fine Art | Scoop.it
I made this series because I wanted to focus on society's obsession with overworking and how it is actually eroding the essence of living and reducing our quality of life.

Most people no longer work because they love to or because it is fulfilling but because it is a necessity. This series depicts the nature of such thought process and lifestyle.

Dramatic Portraits of Ethereal Women Captured with Natural Light

Dramatic Portraits of Ethereal Women Captured with Natural Light | ART  | Conceptual Photography & Fine Art | Scoop.it
Photographer Alessio Albi has continued to capture images of women that feature an incredible use of their surrounding environment. Rather than taking an ordinary portrait, the photographer utilizes the quirks and distinguishing features of each unique setting to add an interesting aesthetic within the frame. Before viewers' eyes, an ordinary fence becomes a vital piece of his visual puzzle, casting a distinct shadow across his model's face.
To incorporate additional drama in his photographs, the artist uses various elements of nature—grass, plants, trees, and wildflowers—to create an improvised shadow, silhouette, or frame. While his model's faces are partly obscured by any given element in each respective shot, Albi makes it so each shot offers a unique way of hiding and revealing his beautiful subject. This impressive technique is the cameraman's way of adding an additional creative dimension to his work.
Albi also believes that a woman's long, colorful hair can work as an extra…

New Cinematic Photos by Vincent Bourilhon Depict Enchantingly Surreal Worlds

New Cinematic Photos by Vincent Bourilhon Depict Enchantingly Surreal Worlds | ART  | Conceptual Photography & Fine Art | Scoop.it
Fine art photographer Vincent Bourilhon expresses his dreams of a dynamic, vibrant world through enchantingly whimsical images. The Paris-based creative, who first first picked up a camera at the age of 16, combines photography and digital manipulation for stunningly surreal results that invite viewers to get lost in otherworldly scenes and visual narratives.
Since we last shared Bourilhon's work in 2013, the photographer has continued to surprise and stun with fresh, imaginative concepts. Some familiar motifs, such as airplanes, rainclouds, and magical jars, are reinterpreted in different ways, while other images explore new ideas and worlds. As always, Bourilhon's work is beautifully cinematic, with each shot resembling a still from a film filled with magic, adventure, and self-discovery.
To purchase prints of Bourilhon's fantasy-inspired work, head on over to My Modern Shop.

Just what goes into taking glamorously surreal photos? If you don't think there's that much planning that goes into taking a shot or two like this, you'd be absolutely wrong. Miss Aniela recently took a trip to Iceland to capture these images. She and her crew had to brave cold and icey conditions in order to get these spectacularly surreal shots. In her own words, here she is explaining the idea for the shoot, her set of challenges, and how she feels about the end result.

The Idea for the Shoot
"We first visited Iceland in April 2014 where we saw some amazing places. We run the Fashion Shoot Experience where a group of photographers from around the world join us on adventures, and this time it was an expedition in Iceland, traveling together in a big 'monster truck', staying at different hotels on a road trip around the southern part of Iceland, visiting black sands, waterfalls, landmarks and amazing scenery along with a crew of models and…

Montreal, just like any big city, is full of homeless people. And just like in every other city, there's a vast majority of people who do everything they can to NOT see the homeless. You know exactly what I mean: you've spotted one from a few meters away, so you speed up your pace, take your phone out or look the other way, making sure to avoid this uncomfortable moment when you just know they're going to ask for some spare change and you'll say no.

100 Years Project: I Captured Portraits And Dreams Of People From 1 To 100 Years Of Age

100 Years Project: I Captured Portraits And Dreams Of People From 1 To 100 Years Of Age | ART  | Conceptual Photography & Fine Art | Scoop.it
This was my dream...

After having lived for some time in Russia, I began to dream about showing the world the beauty of Russia and especially the Russian people that I get to see in my every day life.

I wanted to share the diversity and beauty I am experiencing and I wanted to share the wonderful stories that Russian people think and dream about. I wanted to tell the stories that are not told when you are just passing by people on the street or sitting next to them at a cafe.

The stories are so magnificent and complex that it would not have been right to express them only in words which is why I have tried to capture them in pictures. So it tolk me over two years, and I met over 230 people and shoot their portraits which resulted in 100 pictures capturing people between the ages of one and one hundred. And they all shared there dreams with me.
