Suzanne Saroff

 

Montana-born, New York-based photographer Suzanne Saroff uses everyday foods and botanicals combined with different tools and techniques to create depth, perception, and expression. Who would’ve guessed that a simple grouping of glassware filled with water could create such a dynamic result?

Camila Gutiérrez

 

Lifestyle and commercial photographer Camila Gutiérrez‘s stills are flat-out dreamy. The muted pastel tones she seems to favor either lean towards golden hour vibes or a rainy day mood, two of my personal favorites. Don’t you just want to jump into one of her photos and explore?

Roger Vail

 

Amusement parks and carnivals are two of my favorite things – the energy, the smells, and the people-watching all combine for the perfect summer adventure! Roger Vail started photographing their thrill rides with his 8 x 10-inch view camera back in 1970, his pictures made in the evening hours with long exposure times. The result of these extended moments, which track the momentum of the ride, offer up the childlike sense of wonderment that keeps me going back year after year for more.

Jill Bliss / Nature Medleys

 

Jill Bliss has committed her days to studying and creating in the Salish Sea islands of Canada and Washington. She’s bought a parcel of land and plans to build a homestead on it to use as home base as she explores the Cascadia bioregion. And while Bliss explores it all, I’m partial to her Nature Medleys series – the temporary arrangement of mushrooms and plants that she then photographs.

Her artwork examines the natural world as a scene of mystery, beauty, and constant change that’s transformed both by humans as well as its own design.

Brooke DiDonato

 

I think we could all use the opportunity to step out of our own reality and step into someone else’s for a bit, don’t you? Brooke DiDonato is a New York-based visual artist who creates what some might consider tense situations before capturing them as photos. I, however, am not opposed to a toilet overflowing with flowers!
