Photographer Sandro Miller Recreates Famous Portraits With John Malkovich As His Model
Renowned photographer Sandro Miller has worked together with legendary Hollywood A-Lister John Malkovich many times, but when Miller wanted to celebrate the photography greats that had inspired and guided him, he had to do something special. So he, with Malkovich as his dashing unisex model, recreated some of those influential photographers’ most important portraits in a photo series called “Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to photographic masters.”
The series puts both Miller’s exceptional photography and Malkovich’s masterful acting talents front and center. Miller gets each amazing portrait’s lighting, mood and composition down perfectly, while Malkovich replicates the subject’s emotions and expressions so perfectly that the photos become nearly indistinguishable, regardless of the age or gender of the original subject. And it was all done without Photoshop!

Trippy Dream-Like Time-Lapse of Burning Man
Burning Man 2014 is beginning right now in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. We’d heard that the festival had grown exponentially in recent years, but we had no clue it was this insane.
Vimeo user Roy Two Thousand has compiled a bunch of incredible time-lapse footage from last year’s festival that you have to see to believe.

Romain Laurent: One Loop Portrait a Week - 1 to 6.3
Fantastic art by Romain Laurent: One Loop Portrait check his work on tumblr
The last words said by Black youth murdered by policemen. Rest in peace.
It’s emotional .. The last words said by black youths killed by white policemen
I really love the use of lines of thread to create random geometric shapes in Isobel Adderley’s work. I find the use of a point/points away from the face in the negative space adds another level of interest to the image. In some of the images it appears that the model is pulling/looking away from this point, as if they are tethered to it but have the desire not to be.
Grotesque Portraits of People In Layers of Junk Food Convey Dangers of Mass Production by James OstrerPost-apocalyptic monsters molded from processed goods and sugar
Junk food tastes great going down, but when you look at it in the right light, you realize it’s something that probably shouldn’t be going inside your body. To highlight the corruption of globalisation, along with the increasingly dangerous methods of food production, photographer James Ostrer has created a series called “Wotsit All About.” It features people that look more like monsters hidden beneath layers of sweets and processed goods – with the end result being a hideous thing to behold.
Processed food and it’s effect on making us like monsters.
Enchanting Ballpoint Pen Art by Ler huang
Taiwan based artist Ler Huang creates these experimental drawings with just using a ballpoint pen. Her drawing mainly focuses on fashion illustrations, and female models. The main part of her art is transitions in subjects and geometry usage in her compositions. The illustrated figures look very realistic and I like how she layers the characters by using different colors. Check out the Ler Huang’s outstanding artwork.
to draw is a challenge already, but Ler Huang she isn’t just drawing she is trying to enhance drawing using just ballpoint pens! And to be honest she did it really well .. Wow the way she uses geometry to portray or alter her visions made really nice and it added that element of not just a doodling it’s art at it finest poses.
Oscar Santillan: Daybreak, visual installation
South American artist Oscar Santillan plays with shadows as his artwork focuses on creating ornate window installation right on the wall of the gallery.
The installation entitled Daybreak is created through a sanding process where the artist sands paint off the wall and uses the powder that falls off to create the floor shadow replica. This technique is not only clever, but it is an extremely simple and effective way to make use of as little material as possible.
His work plays with optical illusions as well as with light, shadows and perspective. The results are beautiful and intricate windows, that would most likely be seen in cathedrals. Just like the way sun and light shines through windows and emanates a shadow, Oscar Santillan effectively accomplishes this with his beautiful pieces
