Plog â World, National Photos, Photography and Reportage â The Denver Post Posted Oct 21, 2009 Share This Gallery inShare58 The photographs of Russian chemist and photographer, Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii, show Russia on the eve of World War I and the coming of the revolution. From 1909-1912 and again in 1915, Prokudin-Gorskii travelled across the Russian Empire, documenting life, landscapes and the work of Russain people. His images were to be a photographic survey of the time. Kaisik Wong In 2002 Kaisik Wong was rescued from the pits of obscurity that almost all California based American designers find themselves in at the end of or beyond their careers. Balenciaga’s Nicholas Ghesquire used the San Franciscan’s work as a key reference for his spring 2002 collection. Wong’s ornate use of patchwork and collage was so inspiring the esteemed wunderkind was even suggested to have copied the late designer. Wong’s designs have come to embody a fiercely avant-garde strain of American fashion that has for the most part kept to the west coast. If American fashion is continuously mocked for producing drab and and boring sportswear it is a lack of demand and not supply that is to blame. Wong worked strictly in his own fantastic realm, reimagining the lives of Atlanteans, Lemurians, and other mythic civilizations, all through the lens of the pacific rim and its multi-cultural synergy with the far east (which is ironically occidental to California).

Stunning black and white photography by Hengki Koentjoro (23 images) Black and white photography is one of my favorite things on Earth, and let’s call Hengki Koentjoro’s work Exhibit A as to why. I love the way fog, mist, and water are used as natural special effects to soften and distort the images, and how they take on a life of their own. The key to great black and white photography is contrast, and these photos have it in spades.

Artistic Photo Editing of Everyday Built Environments Erik Johansson takes photo editing and manipulation to new levels with his ever-growing collection of creative, innovative and amazing scenes of altered architecture and unbelivable built environments, distorted objects and twisted imagery – all while preserving an eerie photo-realism from the original photographic subject. Given his emphasis on constructed objects, the care with which he crafts every detail of each image and controls the overall composition, it is perhaps no surprise that this photographer’s background is not in the arts but in computer engineering and interactive design. The rich three-dimensional complexity of each edited photograph is accomplished using exclusively two-dimensional computer editing tools and each work is based on a real photograph, manipulated, altered and added to in a layered and sequential process.

Human Nature : Debbie Carlos Human Nature , 2004 - 2006 The first time I took pictures of the animal displays at Chicago’s Field Museum, I did so purely out of interest in animals. Framing my photos so as to imitate nature photography seemed natural in an environment where the animals, long dead, are themselves placed and positioned in scenes that recreate their habitats.

DiverXO – The Art of Plating To announce its’ relocation to the NH Collection Eurobuilding hotel in Madrid, the three Michelin starred DiverXO releases this extremely bold and twisted short film directed by Marc Ortiz. The video, which eccentrically blurs the line between food and art, features chef David Muñoz and his team preparing and plating a selection of peculiar dishes for a bizarre group of guests.
