Canadian artist Myriam Dion transforms dailies into beautiful pieces of paper art!
You can recycle old newspapers, create origami with them, or even use them as wrapping papers of some sort. But for Dion, newspapers can be manipulated to look like lace! Using only an X-Acto knife, a stack of newspapers, keen eyesight, and a creative mind, Dion painstakingly cuts patterns through the papers and transforms an otherwise serious page into a beautiful work of art. At first glance, you might even think that what you’re looking at are fine embroidered materials!
Currently, Dion is taking up her Masters Degree in Visual and Media Arts at the University of Quebec.
It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.
Vincent Chan doesn’t like constraints. He is passionate about natural and quiet environments. He launched Compose The Story, which provides photography and cinematography services, recently as a means for him and his colleagues to document the beauty of their surroundings. He brings the the Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Lens into the country, and shares glimpses of its beauty in pictures.
For what's beautiful to one, may not be the same to some. When one talks of art and beauty, women are immediately involved in the conversation, long being muses of countless of artists. Photographer Amir Kuckovic shoots portraits of women at their rawest -- against the natural glow.
To build an entire reality out of pieces and fragments which used to belong to another world is a new mode of art in expressing and creating. Belgian artist Sammy Slabbinck fuses random elements of old and new images and techniques to compose a middle earth of the then and now.
In an age where digital cameras provide more room for trial-and-error, practicality, and perfection, the revival of analogue cameras among photographers, artists, and hobbyists marks a shift of the standards of beauty in the art world.
We're thrilled to present our new Kickstarter project—the New Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens! Inspired by the bold brass design of the world's first photographic optic, the Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens is a versatile tool seeking the great return of dreamy imagery.
Janne Parviainen is a 35-year-old artist from Helsinki, Finland. He is both a painter and a photographer but sometimes, he swaps his painting tools for light and creates illuminated pieces of art. Abandoned places are his favorite places for shoots because, according to him, "there's so much lived life and stories in abandoned places, they are the lost diaries and photos turned to dust of lives that once bloomed."
Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.
