Brooke Shaden is a fine art photographer living and working in the Los Angeles area. Her passion lies in creating new worlds through photographs. Her vision extends beyond the realm of the camera, creating images that resemble paintings and speak of an era that is not our own. Each image is a story.
Graphic designer Catrin Welz-Stein draws inspiration from fantasy, children stories, medieval, jugendstil, folklore and surrealism. She collects old images and illustrations and put them together in Photoshop to create her digital collages. The working process is based on combining and the division of photographs, with removing, filling and retouch.
Canada-based photographer Matt Molloy brings sky photography to a new level. By stacking hundreds of separate sky shots he is able to achieve an incredible brush-like effect. Each final picture in his “Smeared Sky” series is a result of combining from 100 to 200 photographs. The number of pictures he uses depends on various factors, such as weather conditions, cloudiness, or whether the object in the picture is moving or static. “Sometimes the clouds are moving quick and there’s lots of them. If I stack too many photos from a timelapse like that, it can get a little messy,” says Matt, adding that it’s usually mid day timelapses that cause more problems.
Four years ago, french photographer Christophe Kiciak did not even thought about the work of photographer. According to Kiciak, inside of him lives a lover of science and a creative person. So, for not to be bored and not to waste any time, Christophe decided to make photography his hobby. And eventually this hobby grew into a main profession. He takes inspiration from the surrounding world and he is not afraid to create completely unrealistic works, because important for him is to achieve his goal. The images here have, surprisingly, involved little use of Photoshop, which was used only in post-production.
In this series, French photographer Laurent Chehere invites us to dream and imagine what it would be like if houses were flying. “Flying Houses” represents a mix of Chehere shooting various structures and creating them in Photoshop.
“Technically, I drew the buildings and afterward, I shot each element such as the roof, walls, windows, graffiti, and even the people—it’s a montage,” explained Chehere. “The series is a tribute to the old Paris and the movies including The Red Balloon, and directors such as Hayao Miyazaki, Wim Wenders, and Federico Fellini”.
