I have actually been to the location in the photograph above by Kevin Kunstadt and he somehow captured the entire mood and aura invoked by that place. The same can be said for all the rest of the images in his book.

There are some quiet and contemplative moments happening in the Flickrstream of ‘Shtroxy‘. They are like little snippets from past memories or dreams. Some of them are light and some are dark. She has a great eye for composition and I would be curious is these are staged or just captured on the fly.

Kim Høltermand sent in a new set of images titled ‘Deserted City.’ As always it’s a hauntingly beautiful series of images that are about a careful balance between positive and negative space. We are gushing fans of Høltermand’s beautiful work.

She has a glorious eye for capturing landscapes, scenes and textures that seem as though they are small slices from bigger dreams. She shoots with a nikon f65, a holga 120cfn and a polaroid spirit 600 c. She prefers film.

Photographer Nicholas Hance McElroy has an eye for capturing some arresting scenes from quiet places around the world that I would guess most of us wouldn’t mind pausing for a moment to refresh the soul. The desaturation of his imagery enhances the contemplative aura of the scene.

Lars Botten is primarily, well he is a fashion photographer but he is more dimensional than that. Not only does he have an amazing eye for his beautiful subjects, that eye occasionally wanders and captures the surrounding environment with just as much artistic care and consideration.

The soft washed-out colors in the photographs of Anna Verlet almost move you toward feeling the environments captured in her images more than seeing them. She currently hails from Portland, Oregon and her exhibit “I Hear A New World” is currently on display at Stumptown Coffee (128 SW Third Ave) through March 30th. The show also features photographs by Anna Shelton & Daren Wilson.

Brooklyn based photographer Kevin Cooley has a flair for making the world captured through his lens look ‘other worldly’. The stark color in his contemplative imagery equates to photographic art and his attention to craftsmanship insures a spectacular result.

Brooklyn based photographer Alex Gaidouk captures quiet contemplative moment of serenity that can lift you out of your present reality and put your somewhere, albeit momentarily as an observer, which is a unique gift.

You begin browsing the photographs of artist James Chronister and think, ‘well these are nice.’ Then you scroll down and read the title and description of the work and realize that you aren’t actually looking at photographs, you are looking at oil paintings. Then you really start to pay close attention because the detail is phenomenal.

I discovered photographer Ryan McGinley today while perusing Do It For the Fame (such a great blog) and was just amazed by his work. Both his choice of locations and how his models interact with the chosen environment make for such gorgeous images. There is something both psychedelic and serene happening simultaneously.

Mitch Dobrowner is a landscape photographer who has some absolutely gorgeous black and white imagery in his portfolio. The images are almost alien in their serene and subtle contrasts. He has somehow been able to capture the quiet stoicism of nature in a contemplative way that will make you want to get out from behind your computer and go explore. He also has some urban work that is equally alien and beautiful. It was impossible to choose an image that represents his body of work. I swear that every last image is a work of art. Serious talent and an amazing and wondrous eye.
