Tanya Chubko by Gabriele Dimola

Tanya Chubko’s lithe frame and flower-crowned head feature on Bambi Magazine‘s latest cover. It’s a perfect choice for an issue filled with images that marry purity and sensuality, mythology and modernity. Photographer Gabriele Dimola catches a haze of springtime romance that makes you wish you could see a field of blossoming flowers outside your window, even if the reality is a pile of fallen leaves.

The Puffins of Dyrhólaey | Ian Plant

Wonders of Iceland: The Puffins of Dyrhólaey
by Ian Plant

ianplant001 ianplant002 ianplant003“Dyrhólaey is a promontory reaching out into the ocean on the south coast of Iceland, near the town of Vik. The cliffs of Dyrhólaey stand almost 400 feet high, and include an enormous sea arch and numerous nearby rock pillars and sea stacks. Many nesting birds make Dyrhólaey their summer home, including fulmars, guillemots, razorbills, gannets, seagulls—and, my personal favorite—puffins!”

Kai Ziehl | Black and white architecture photography

German artist Kai Ziehl approaches architecture photography with a certain style that results in visually powerful, contemplative moments. Ziehl transforms architectural structures into stunning geometric shapes and lines that fill each composition. Light and shadow complement each other in the high contrast scenes filled with mesmerizing abstract forms and feelings of solitude and isolation.
