Delaney Allen Photographs Nature in Odd and Abstract Ways

Delaney Allen Photograph

Delaney Allen has a special eye for photography. In particular, it’s his ability to photograph nature that really stands out to me. Instead of photographing, I dunno, leaves or a random sunset, he captures unnatural looking natural phenomenons. The image above is a great example, seeing clouds that have been transformed by a ring of light and colors.

What else makes his work special is the sheer breadth of his work. I culled together all of these images and there are about 50 more on his website of equal merit. He’s always finding beautiful scenes and photographing them, wherever he goes.

Beauty and Destruction in Heather Rasmussen’s ‘Untitled (after the fire)’

Untitled (after the fire) by Heather Rasmussen

I find the image above to be hugely arresting. Taken from a series by photographer Heather Rasmussen called Untitled (after the fire), the image depicts what remains of a doorway after a house fire. As a viewer, I feel somewhat removed from the incident; initially simply drawn to the formal qualities of the work, and yet I’m also struck by the destruction it depicts and haunted by the reflective quality that shines through it.

For Rasmussen the photographs obviously take on a much deeper meaning. She says that the fire caused her to take a look at her life and her possessions. For her, the fire was a moment to step back and decide what was important in her life and to also re-evaluate what comfort and home meant to her. “Through photographing the damaged areas” she says, “I have allowed myself to see what was there before the flames”.

It’s quite a touching and reflective series and I feel it should act as a prompt for others to take a little moment to appreciate the things that they do have in life and to appreciate what home and comfort means to them.

More images from this series and other works can be viewed on Rasmussen’s website.

Magical Fashion Photography by Oleg Oprisco

Oleg Oprisco

I can’t say that I know much about Oleg Oprisco other then that facts that he works in Kiev and that his photos blow my mind. To me his work seem like a really beautiful blend of fashion and conceptual photography. There’s an obvious beauty to each of them but there’s also a ton of work that went into each image to make it happen. Whether it’s an immense crown of flowers adorning a woman’s head or a woman lighting a box of oversized matches, each of these scenarios must have taken a lot of time and effort to create.

Ken Hermann’s ‘Flower Man’ Photo Series

Ken Hermann's 'Flower Man' Photo Series

Copenhagen based photographer Ken Hermann recently completed a photo series titled Flower Man that showcases the merchants from the Mallick Ghat flower market. I love these portraits because they’re able to capture the range of people that sell at the market, much like the numerous blossoms sold there. I think the technique of fading out the background to bring the subject more into focus is a nice touch as well.

Check out the whole series of photos by clicking here.

Fat & Furious Burger Elevates Hamburgers Into Works of Art

Fat & Furious Burger

It’s a matter of fact that my favorite meal is the hamburger. There’s something so perfect about the combination of beef, cheese, and produce all wrapped up in a pair of fresh buns. Thankfully the folks at Fat & Furious Burger feels the same way, turning hamburgers into these fantastic works of food art. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many different kinds of burgers ever, and you’ve probably seen nothing quite like these. These burgers are themed around all sorts of pop culture topics like soccer, outer space, birthdays, James Bond, all sorts of crazy stuff.

A lot of the time they even include the ingredients to their burgers, like the Burger Blanc sur Fond Blanc below, which includes a chicken breast filet, roasted camembert, honey, white onions marinated in vinegar, endive, and mushrooms. It might be a little intimidating looking but I’d certainly be up for the challenge.

Tom Blachford’s Tranquil Aerial Photos of the Ocean

Aerial Photos by Tom Blachford

Summer is in full swing here in the northern hemisphere and Melbourne based photographer Tom Blachford has captured the spirit perfectly. These aerial photos were taken earlier this year while Melbourne was having their summer. The shots show a tranquil vision of the sea, made of dark water that’s pierced only by boats and the occasional wake. There’s something nice about the contrast of these photos and the subtle blues and greens of the ocean. You don’t often see the ocean like this which is a shame, it’s quite beautiful

Tranquil shots of Nature in Miren Pastor’s ‘Bidean’

Bidean Miren

Sometimes it’s nice to encounter work where you don’t know the full story. This is the case with Bidean; a beautiful series of images from Madrid-based photographer Miren Pastor. Pastor’s work explores open fields and deep recesses. Her images are bathed in a beautiful light where nature seems to either be dawning a new or where the sun is slowly taking its final crawl across our planet. Whatever state these images are captured in, it’s hard not to get swept up in their lush beauty.

More images from the series can be found on Pastor’s website with a series of words in Spanish.
