Barbara Kyne-1-Design Crush

 

I believe that sometimes there is more beauty in a blurry photograph than in one that is crisp and flawless. It seems Barbara Kyne believes the same. Her At the Museum series explores how it feels to be engaged with art aesthetically, intellectually, and emotionally while By Fire captures what it’s like to spend an evening around a bonfire to a tee.

Arno de Pooter / Bleach

Arno de Pooter-1-Design Crush

 

Arno de Pooter is a master at capturing through his lens what most of us take for granted – everyday life. From curves in a residential street to run-of-the-mill concrete buildings, de Pooter sees things different than most. His Bleach series captures these washed out images beautifully.

Yung Cheng Lin‘s manipulated photography is attention-grabbing, that’s for sure. Her latest series strives to bring attention to female body modification through a digitally imposed piece of red string threaded through her subjects’ skin.
