The infamous bounty hunter from “Star Wars” looks just at home in the harsh, yet beautiful terrain of Iceland, in this photo-project by Mr. Wink from Rocket & Wink, a creative team based in Hamburg, Germany.
Here are a few more images from the project.
Striking. That was the first word which popped into my mind when I first laid my eyes on illustrator and photographer Sarah Rosado’s beautiful photographs. Full of whimsical playfulness with an underlying current of vibrant sensuality, her images look distinctive and fresh. Whether it is discovering familiar shapes in clouds, or uncovering one-eyed monsters hiding in foliage, Rosado seems to take great delight in finding beauty in the mundane.
Snip from her bio:
Inspired by her aunt and uncle, both artists in their respect, Sarah found a style that was unique to her. With art, running through her veins, it was inevitable to Sarah to take what loved and immerse herself in it.

When 14 year olds start shooting photographs like this, it reassures me that the future of photography is in good hands. Arimbi Alessandra modestly calls herself an “aspiring photographer,” but it’s clear that she is a genuine talent. With her keen eye for color and composition, as well as a great ability to create images that seem to be moving, this Indonesian teenager is bound to go places in the coming years.

Born a fraternal twin himself, the artist’s long fascination with the alter egos of humans has manifested itself in his paintings. Wojahn transforms select photos from his portfolio (both old and new) into antique style images of our evil twins, by adding multiple layers of paint and texture on them. The results are eerie and disturbing, yet quite beautiful.
Wojahn is a filmmaker, and a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He is also an McKnight Photography Fellow, who has had his works exhibited in numerous exhibitions across the U.S.
The exhibition will be on show at the Rogue Buddha Gallery from Friday, September 7th, 2012 to Saturday, September 29th, 2012.

Tintypes photographs are made by capturing direct-positive images on sheets of iron, which are then blackened by painting, lacquering or enameling. Photographer Michael Shindler, a practitioner of this vintage photographic process, has a tintype portrait studio set up on Valencia Street in San Francisco. The studio has seen about 3,500 people having their portraits taken by him.
Michael’s photographs have an interesting sense of randomness to them, mostly due to the fact that he has no choice in deciding his subjects, many of whom are curious visitors to his studio. He prepares each tintype by hand, and then makes single exposures of his subjects. The tintypes are processed immediately, and can be ready in 15 minutes to be given to the customers. The lush, high contrast photographs he shoots using this process are truly unique as they are no negatives involved, and only one physical copy of each individual image exists.

Londoner Alice Bartlett’s visit to a model shop was the source of inspiration behind these lush-looking “lawns” on her fingernails, which she created using nothing more than green flocking, miniature trees and figurines.
