Please enjoy the washed out, slightly retro and sometimes sun-drenched photography captured by Spanish photographer Ana Cabaleiro. It’s a light and beautiful affair. I would say more but the images say it all.

Joshua Hibbert was another artist who sent me his work and very humbly so as well. It was another, hey please check out my work email and to be honest, for as long as I have been blogging and looking at portfolios online (over 10 years now) you develop certain predisposed judgements. So when I see a link to a ‘blogspot’ portfolio I think, well he/she doesn’t really have a real website so I will check it out, but my expectations are at a minimum. But who am I to be such a pretentious douchebag and think that I know everything about how people choose to display their work online. I say this especially because Hibbert’s work surprised me and he has some excellent imagery on display and he is an obvious multi-faceted talent. Thanks for sending your work in Josh. I was inspired.

The Atlantic has published a series of spectacular photographs featuring the past year’s volcanic activity. Some of the imagery is as frightening as it is stunning.

The ever-inspiring photographer known as Li Wei has updated with yet again a flurry of mind-bending imagery that all appear as though they were somehow magically captured in camera.

“Jefta is a young 24-year passion for mixing photography, painting and digital arts.

His work is mainly based on the body that operates in different ways, including encrusting textures or image by dressing.”

Jefta’s photography borders on the surreal psychedelic and it all comes straight out of simple photographs of people. He has an interesting perspective. I’d watch his space for future photography work if I were you.

Not only is Nacho Rojo quite possibly the coolest name you have heard in a long time that doesn’t belong to a Mexican Wrestler, it also represents the work of a pretty kick ass photographer and I am particularly loving this set of images from his Behance-Folio.

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.

Digital illustrator and pixel pusher Rob Shields has updated with some striking new imagery. It’s a touch darker than some of his past work but his technique is getting sharper and imagery more interesting.

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.

Fox Harvard is a Florida based photography who is largely self taught. He has an amazing eye for composition and his soft dreamy imagery is oozing with moodiness and style.

Photographer Daniel Shea captures stark, subtley-toned landscapes that present man’s nuanced battle with the industry of his creation. The images are no frills but there is a definite tension bubbling just under the surface.

I am digging this series of collages by artist and photographer John Vincent Aranda. It’s definitely Roy Lichtenstein inspired work but of course Lichtenstein’s work was influenced by popular comic book artists of that time. The circle goes around. I was more inspired though because I have been looking at old comic book illustrations like this a lot lately as an influence on my own drawing and illustration work.

Metamorphosis is a recent photo study by the French photographer who calls himself Me&Edward. It’s a fascinating but disturbing series of images depicting the human form in a bio-transitional state.

Gif shop is kind of a cool little app for your iPhone that allows you to make animated gifs via the camera in your phone and then publish them quickly. If you are infatuated by the animated gif medium it’s a great way to experiment with it. It would be cool to see someone do an entire stop motion animation with it that lasted more than just a few frames. I could imagine if done right you could probably generate something pretty cool. You can watch the how to above and find out more at gifshop.tv.

Photographer Greg Ponchak has updated with more darkly serene and mystical black and white images. I am amazed by his ability to seemingly capture images like this on the fly. He has a real eye for composition and drama.

Jason Travis has put together an interesting photographic diptych series entitled ‘Persona’ that documents whatever people consider essential enough to carry on their person. The series has accumulated a lot of notoriety in the press. You can watch a short documentary about the series above and check out the photos in Travis’s Flickrstream.

Pat Perry is one of those rare artists whose talent is totally unbound by media. He’s an excellent painter, drawer and photographer. The work in his sketchbook alone would make any artist flush with jealousy at such obvious talent. His blog is simply spilling over with inspiration all coming from none other than himself.
