See if you can try guessing what the objects shown in these photographs are.

After the success of his first, hugely viral short film, anonymous artist, photographer and musician Pyanek is back with the second video in the Amazing Worlds Within Our World series. The video was made by putting together macro photographs of common household objects and foods to create stunning, yet jarring imagery, and finally setting it to an eerie soundtrack scored by the artist himself.

You can find out if your guesses were correct by watching the video at the end of this post.

Though shooting stunning photographs of people is her full time job, Austria-based wedding and boudoir photographer Claudia Magas often finds herself going out on her own looking for inspiration in the little and quiet things on the street with her old Yashica or Mamiya film cameras. In her botanical study series, Magas’s close-up photographs of floral subjects have been lovingly captured with the same sensual lushness that is characteristic of her photography of beautiful human bodies.

You can check out her wedding and boudoir site (obviously NSFW) to more of her works. She also regularly posts updates on her blog, Instagram and Pinterest.

Slovenian videographer Nejc Miljak made the award-winning “Before You Wake Up” by accompanying Janez Tolar, a fellow Slovenian and accomplished landscape photographer on one of his photo expeditions.

In the short film, Tolar, who believes in “waking the sun up” sets out in the early hours of the day and pushes himself on through the harsh, but spectacular valleys and mountainsides on his quest to capture those perfect photographic moments. The videographer’s camera not only plays the part of the silent observer, but also faithfully reveals Tolar’s inspiring philosophy about photography and life.

The resulting short film is as breathtaking as the photographs shot by Tolar himself.

In his “Breathing Life” photo project, photographer and filmmaker Michael Synder masterfully blends human bodies in yogic postures with the intricate structures of plants and trees. The project explores how human and non-human life forms are united through the simple act of breathing air.

More about the project:

The images were shot in Washington D.C.’s Meridian Hill / Malcolm X Park with local yoga instructors Hawah Kasat and Helena Snyder.  The project was created in partnership with Washington Parks & People, One Common Unity and Interdependent Pictures, Washington D.C. based organizations with a unified mission to breathe life into urban green spaces and connect urban communities to the earth. 

Synder, who is based in Washington D.C, is the founder of a media production studio working with environmental and social-good organizations. The works of this award winning artist have been featured in numerous galleries, magazines, books, television and at film festivals around the world.
