B/D Best of 2010 – Sara Cwynar

sara cwynar paranoiaFeel free to blame Canada for the fun artwork of Toronto-based photographer Sara Cwynar.  The above image is a ‘fictional manifestation of paranoia’.  The cluttered composition and mischievous raccoon makes me a bit paranoid, even though I enjoy it.  Sara was even featured in The New York Times magazine, and she’s still in school!  You can also see Sara’s work on her Tumblr page.

Kids Play Hard. Adults Play Harder.

The following series of photos are apart of an ad-campaign for Italian Based shoe firm, Luciano Carvari. Using these playfully surrealistic images, the photographer feeds off the wacky, bold, and daring styles of the shoes to create an intense visual. When viewing the photographs for the first time there is an obvious juxtaposition between child’s play and adult situations. The role reversal captures your attention and never lets it go.

Jorge Miguel’s “Dark People”

Jorges Miguel - Photography

I wear a lot of black and am frequently lumped into a certain black wearing subculture that will remain nameless (hint: it isn’t “dark people”); so I was understandably delighted when I saw these exquisitely polished portraits by Spanish photographer Jorge Miguel.

Bobby Neel Adams Halfsies and Wholes

Most of Bobby Neel Adams‘s whole shpiel is taking two seperate images and composing them as if they were one.  Old and young, man and woman, comparing and contrasting two different relationships and how they work together.

Nadav Kander Photography

Nadav Kander has some really great portrait photography of selected celebrities and political figures.  I especially like his series ” Obama’s People” just because of how awkward government employees tend to be when photographed.

Caleb Charland Lights Up Your Life

I can’t get enough of Caleb Charland‘s photography.  He uses any source of light including but not limited to fire, flashlights, and even the glow from point and shoot camera displays and the result is just beautiful.

Bernadinism Will Melt Your Brain.

Bernadinism
These are some shots from Bernadinism, the most insane, awesome, mind blowing, infuriating flash website I have ever seen. It is the portfolio of artist Alva Bernadine and features photographs, film, writing, and some of the most intense flash action I’ve ever seen.
