Patty Maher

 

Ontario-based photographer Patty Maher‘s work is hauntingly beautiful. Her inspiration lies in storytelling, set in both natural and urban settings, and through staged and self-portraits. Using posture and gesture the subjects’ faces are hidden, their inner worlds and emotions explored through symbol and color. Maher’s end goal in each piece is to disrupt the boundaries between real life and the otherworldly, the surreal and the fantastic.

Niaz Uddin

 

Niaz Uddin is a Los Angeles-based director, photographer, and filmmaker, and with titles like those it’s no surprise he has a fantastic eye. Uddin’s beautiful shots of nature made me take a few moments to slow down and appreciate what surrounds us, especially appreciated during this hectic time of year.

José Lourenço / Ice Cream

 

José Lourenço‘s ongoing series entitled Ice Cream is the stuff visual art dreams are made of! Loaded paintbrushes full of swirled, nearly marbled paint look just about good enough to eat. I’d love to see a video of how Lourenço creates these pieces.

Jeff Dietz

 

The habit of having a camera and sketchbook with you at all times lends itself well to being a pro at capturing moments. Photographer Jeff Dietz finds inspiration everywhere, finding a particularly strong connection to sunlight, trees, and the streets. Do you find yourself wondering about the backstories here, too?

Nicolai Howalt / Light Break Wavelengths

 

Another guessing game – what medium do you think makes up Nicolai Howalt‘s Light Break Wavelengths series? Paint? Ink? Maybe something less common? The answer is none of the above, it’s photography. Howalt challenges the boundaries of photos while exploring existential issues like the abstract and the real, life and death, horror and fascination, finite and infinite.
