Photographer Sandro Miller Recreates Famous Portraits With John Malkovich As His Model | petapixel

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.

Isobel Adderley

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

on Behance, Facebook

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.
