Akif Hakan’s photography portfolio is full of both personal and commercial fashion photography. He’s got many beautiful images on his site but the image above captured my eye. I love the optical effect of the hand disappearing behind the hair. Akif also has great series on glamour goths, urban fairies, and other bizarre fashionistas from around the world.
Frode Bolhuis’ sculptures are elegant, beautiful, and quietly poetic.
Jordan Sondler’s drawings and illustrations are full of quirky fun. Check out the geometric noses on all the figures.
Madeline Maser’s portfolio of photography has some great portraits.
I’ve always hated zoos. They are so cold, artificial, and sad. I personally only support animal sanctuaries as they actually take care of the animals instead of treating them like cheap objects on display. Daniel kukla’s Captive Landscapes documents 8 different zoos in the US, capturing the artifiicial spaces that we create for these poor animals so that we can look and point at them.
Looks like I’m on a nature kick today since George Boorujy’s insanely detailed ink drawings are the 3rd nature related post of the day!
Delicate wood carvings by Satoru Koizumi.
Interesting series of photographs by Anthony Lepore of visitor centers, rest stops, and information centers found at the edge of wilderness.
