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…
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.

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.

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.
