The world in Infrared by Italian photographer

Humans tend to believe in what they are able to conceive, to see, to hear. Though truth is wider than what our eyes are able to focus on. this is why
Italian photographer Paolo Pettigiani  chose to curate the world around him in infrared photography: to make the invisible evident. With his recent installation #InfraScapes , Paolo aims to show something that is broadly recognizable to the human eye, under a new and unexpected point of view.

 The intalian photographer spent three years in Arts and Design courses at Politecnico in Turin, specializing in how to use colour to distort reality. Majority of his works are shot  with a Nikon D750, converting Full-Spectrum, to explore the light’s spectrum emanated by plants. A spark that lies just beyond the beam visible to the naked eyes.

Iconic space exploration relics in pink photoshots

When the first man-made satellite, Sputnik, was launched by the Soviet Union over 60 years ago, it’s hard to imagine its designers and engineers, in their pursuit of technological achievement, were ever considerate of the beauty of what they were creating. This pioneering, beeping metal sphere would change the course of history, initiating the Space Race and prompting the creation of a host of extraordinary technological objects, such as the almost mouse-like Sputnik 3 satellite and the ‘saucepan-on-wheels’, Lunokhod lunar rover.

This series documents many of those objects, in celebration both of the achievements of the Soviet space program are Injected with a shock of hot pink for the installation cosmic Pop, all of which are iconic objects of that era, a vivid memorial to the conquerors of space ; featured in charming but brutal designs.

It is particularly notable how the designs of the Soviet program progressed: from the ‘bolt-on’ aesthetic of early Space Race technology to the increasingly homogeneous look of later years, many designs began to mirror, and copy those of their US counterparts.

Menu project is an artistic impression with Food.

Eating at a restaurant isn’t about the sustenance —It’s about the experience. A good menu is a story, with its own narrative arc. Tension is built and released, emotions are evoked and questions are raised. With Several photos of grotesque human faces spread across a canvas,  covered with distinct food materials, this is a project by two Netherlanders ;  photographer and journalist  Robert Harrison and  chef Robbie Postma  attempting to create a visual exploration of that experience .  and keep it personal they collaborated on a visual photographic experiment  they called MENU .
In their series of portraits, Robbie Postma (chef) and Robert Harrison (photographer) take the viewer back to the origin of a menu. Through visual imagination and culinary flair, they evoke every step of a fine dining experience, but rather than focusing of the final, finessed dishes, MENU makes the raw, unprocessed ingredients the heroes. Served on the closest place you can get to a chef’s mind: on his face.
we decided to use a very personal canvas. This is why our menu is not served on a plate, but on a face. And to capture the love and attention that goes into creating a good menu, we avoided any digital intervention.Every ingredient has been attached manually, no photoshop,
handcrafted with every attention to detail. Just like in a good kitchen.”  Robbie say.

 

When creating these images, Postma and Harrison stuck to the same principles and values a chef would when creating a menu: paying a lot of attention to the details, the composition, the preparation and of course the ingredients. From cutlery to coffee bean, every component is painstakingly prepared to produce the ultimate effect. And every grain of rice was added by hand, without the aid of digital manipulation. MENU is hand crafted. Just like the best food.
 The whole project took a year to complete from start to finish ; and each image is the result of a lengthy process of research, testing of materials, preparation, art direction, planning and of course experimenting – most shots taking sometimes up to nine hours to prepare.

I wanted a recurring subject in my photos and with so many photographers visiting the country, I figured that I needed to do something to set me apart!” he said. “I was watching the LOTR for the 5th time when I figured New Zealand is famous for 2 things: its landscapes and the LOTR + Hobbit Trilogies. So why not combine the two by having Gandalf in the landscapes?

At first, he tried self-portraits: “I tried the camera on a tripod with a timer shot, didn’t work for me,” Suhas said. “So, I started asking the people I met along the way if they wanted to put on the outfit.” Surprisingly, people agreed, and Suhas created an amazing small-person-big-landscape photo tour of New Zealand.

Anita Jambor exhibits a cache of Intricately patterned Atria.

 

the unique feature of the atrium is the wide open space it engender, broad. Atriums or Atria are a popular design feature as they  engender  the “feeling of space and light.”

Atria are popular with building users, building designers and building developers. Users like atria because they create a dynamic and stimulating interior that provides shelter from the external environment while maintaining a visual link  with the external environment. As part of her recent travel project, Anita jambor of Vellumlife photography shows off a collection of the captured atriums all around Europe. Her collection boast a wild array of colourful designs and unique patterns.
