With her subversive photo series ‘ANIMALCOHOLICS,’’ photographer Frieke Janssens humorously tackles society’s casual acceptance of alcohol and the regressive animal-like behavior which rears its ugly head once people are drunk. The result is a “large, surrealist panorama in which she takes alcohol out of its human context, capturing imagined animals in a state of intoxication that one might see in a bar.”

Based in Brussels, Belgium, Frieke Janssens has had a love affair with photography starting at an young age. She creates arresting visual narratives with her images which grab hold the interest of the viewer. Despite being quite busy doing commercial work for numerous creative agencies and corporations, Jannsens finds the time for her personal projects with a sociological angle.

You can find more of her photography on her site and Facebook page.

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.

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.
