The Arcimboldo Series / by artist & photographer Klaus Enrique.      Words from the author: I had been working on a photography series in which I surround an isolated human body part with a large quantity of a certain object, when I was struck by the idea for this project. While I was photographing a human eye that was peeking out amongst hundreds of leaves, it occurred to me that I could actually utilize leaves to construct portraits or masks. I researched what other artists had created along these lines and discovered that, as usual, someone somewhere had already done something similar. In this case it was the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who made paintings with this concept in mind over 400 years ago. The Arcimboldo Series / by artist & photographer Klaus Enrique.

From the series ‘Just the Two of Us’ –  Portraits of Cosplay Enthusiasts in their Homes, photographed by Klaus Pichler

In his ongoing series of portraits titled Just the Two of Us, photographer Klaus Pitchler gained access to the homes of Austrain costume play (cosplay) enthusiasts where he photographed the elaborately costumed individuals against the backdrops of their everyday life. Via his artist statement:

Who hasn’t had the desire just to be someone else for awhile? Dressing up is a way of creating an alter ego and a second skin which one’s behaviour can be adjusted to. Regardless of the motivating factors which cause somebody to acquire a costume, the main principle remains the same: the civilian steps behind the mask and turns into somebody else. ’Just the Two of Us’ deals with both: the costumes and the people behind them.

While the costumes are incredible, terrifying, and laughable, it’s the strange juxtaposition of ordinary home life and the unknown identities of each individual that create such great images.

Cool and innnovative set of photographs from the series 'I'm not here' in which photographer Pol Ubeda Hervas captures the human absence from its surroundings. The concept behind the series is deeply metaphorical, visual food for though reflecting the situations where the change is irreversible and we cannot even recognize ourselves.

Beautiful photographs from his series 'The Promised Land' by Stephen Tamiesie /  about the series:      'Promised Land (2007-2011)      Promised Land examines the once held American belief of Manifest Destiny – the 19th Century mantra that the United States was predestined to spread over the entire continent, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific.  Motivated by President Jefferson and the Lewis & Clark Expedition, Westward settlers quickly achieved this goal when in 1912 Arizona joined as the final state in the continental U.S. forming an uninterrupted nation stretching from coast to coast.       At its conception, Manifest Destiny confronted a territory that was unknown to most Americans.  Today it is apparent to anyone headed out on the interstate that the West – once a great frontier – has become accessible in nearly every corner on its surface.       The photographs in this series are appraisals of the American thumbprint on the West, at points where population and a wild landscape intersect.  Through these images Promise Land surveys the idea of Manifest Destiny over 150 years since its origin and reveals the results of a once monumental belief now evidenced in the West.'

about the series:

‘Promised Land (2007-2011)

Promised Land examines the once held American belief of Manifest Destiny – the 19th Century mantra that the United States was predestined to spread over the entire continent, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific.  Motivated by President Jefferson and the Lewis & Clark Expedition, Westward settlers quickly achieved this goal when in 1912 Arizona joined as the final state in the continental U.S. forming an uninterrupted nation stretching from coast to coast.

 At its conception, Manifest Destiny confronted a territory that was unknown to most Americans.  Today it is apparent to anyone headed out on the interstate that the West – once a great frontier – has become accessible in nearly every corner on its surface.

 The photographs in this series are appraisals of the American thumbprint on the West, at points where population and a wild landscape intersect.  Through these images Promise Land surveys the idea of Manifest Destiny over 150 years since its origin and reveals the results of a once monumental belief now evidenced in the West.’
