Couple Picks The Wrong Place To Take Engagement Photos

Vanessa Lawson and her fiance Josh Morden wanted to celebrate their engagement with a nice photo shoot. Too bad they chose Camp Crystal Lake for the location. There’s still a crazy maniac with a hockey mask and a machete running around there.

Not since the great zombie slaying couple of 2011 have we seen such incredible engagement photos.

The series is simply titled “till death do us part”. And mad props to photographer Brandon Gray for capturing these special memories.

Bodyscapes- By Carl Warner

Shin Knee Valley

Carl Warner can make fantastic landscapes using just about anything: office supplies, nuts and bolts, even clothing.

He might best be known, though, for his “Foodscapes,” an idea that came to him in a food market at a time when his career as an advertising photographer was stagnating. Now the images are frequently used for advertising and commercial purposes.

Lately, Warner is in the habit of making “Bodyscapes” after finding inspiration in the scenes of naked bodies in the dusty, rocky terrain of Michelangelo Antonioni’s film, Zabriskie Point. “I was fascinated by the relationship between body and landscape, and I have always been looking at my own body in terms of its form as something structural and sculptural,” Warner said via email.

Cross Section Photos of Bullets From WW2

In October of 2012, LA-based photographer Sabine Pearlman found herself ensconced in a Swiss WWII bunker photographing 900 different “specimens” of cross sectioned ammunition. Her resulting photo series, AMMO, shows the beauty and craftsmanship that went into creating these destructive little pieces of engineering.

Pearlman “strives to create a poetry of images by synergizing the ‘big picture’ with the small details.” Insofar as her AMMO series is concerned, that means the juxtaposition of beauty and destruction. The photos themselves are fascinating to look at, but the series is meant to evoke more than that:

The cross-sections reveal a hidden complexity and beauty of form, which stands in vast contrast to the destructive purpose of the object. It is a representation of the evil and the beautiful, a reflection of the human condition.

Limbo – Caught Between Dreams and Reality

Limbo is a collection of portraits featuring men who are trapped in a symbolic struggle between two choices. Based in El Salvador, artist Rodrigo Dada produced this series to illustrate the concept of transition. In the photographs, each person can choose to go one of two ways, continuing the descent underwater or moving forward and emerging above the surface.

Dada challenges his viewer’s perspective by turning each image sideways, which produces the illusion that the men are standing, trapped in a personal conflict. According to the artist, “The subject is found buoyant in between dreams and reality, calm and violence. This project is about threat and confusion: to float or to drown.”
