Jonas in NYC by Michele Palazzo

This Photograph of the NYC Winter Storm Looks Like an Impressionist Painting

MichelePalazzo01aWhile walking through the Jonas Winter Storm that swept across the East Coast last week, photographer Michele Palazzo captured this incredible shot of the Flatiron Building against a backdrop of swirling snow. With the exception of a few minor details like logos and a food cart, the image looks like an impressionist right out of another another century. The cloudy atmosphere and gusty winds creates patterns that appear uncannily like brush strokes.

Flocks of Birds

Flocks of Birds
When birds travel in flocks, their behavior takes on emergent properties. Out of the chaos of flight, gorgeous, geometric patterns coalesce. When photographers capture these patterns at exactly the right time, it’s like seeing mathematical abstractions written across the sky. Here are some of the most stunning images of flocking patterns we’ve ever seen.

Images surréalistes d’Istanbul par Aydın Büyüktaş

Aydın Büyüktaş est un artiste photographe turc né à Ankara en 1972, aujourd’hui il vit et travaille à Istanbul.
Pour cette série étonnante de photos retouchées d’Istanbul, Aydın s’est inspiré du livre d’Edwin Abbat « Flatland, a Romance of many dimensions » et d’une scène mythique du film « Inception ».
Ces visions multidimensionnelles d’Istanbul nous plongent dans un univers surréaliste proche mais à la fois très éloigné de notre perception.
