DIAMOND COAST BY DILLON MARSH

Photographer  Dillon Marsh (behance) - “The landscapes we occupy are filled with natural and manmade features that reveal curious details about ourselves and about our relationship with the environment. Although clearly visible and tangible, they often remain hidden in our peripheral vision, occupying the margins of our day to day existence. Landmarks uncovers and explores some of these features and offers new ways of seeing them.”

LANDSCAPE 

ARTWORK BY MARTIN STYNES

Martin Stynes FRSA (facbook) is an Irish artist based in Manchester UK. His inspiration comes from landscapes and the power of colour and scale. 

"These paintings come from observation, memories and emotions and are nearly always based on landscapes. When I look at a landscape the feelings of awe and wonder can be overwhelming; the beauty of the world can sometimes be heartbreaking. These feelings and memories drive my painting; I feel I am entering a world of child like simplicity. But complex cognitive processes, of which I am largely unaware, control my actions until the time comes when the painting is finished. I parcel all the colours, spaces, memories and emotions, and send this into the future to be unwrapped when the painting is finished. It often is not what I expected to see."

His work is in several private collections in the UK, Ireland, Italy, Norway, USA, Australia and South Africa.

DESOLATE SHAPES BY ANDRES OROZCO

NY, Brooklyn based photographer Andres Orozco (behance) - "Living in an industrial neighborhood surrounded by factories, with streets full of trucks and dust, basic shapes pop out. At first glance they seem like concrete, colorless boxes eaten by rust. Once inmersed in this concrete jungle, the diversity of structures and scale form shapes in astonishing colors. This photographs were taken in medium format over several sundays, when the industrial landscape turns into a desolate and disregarded space.”

HASHIMA ALSO KNOWN AS GUNKANJIMA

PHOTOGRAPHER SEBASTIEN TIXIER

Paris, France-based photographer Sebastien Tixier (tumblr) - The Japanese island of Hashima, also known as Gunkanjima (or “war vessel”) because of its shape, falls under the Nagasaki Prefecture in Japan. Used for quarrying coal, the island experienced extremely dense urbanisation accompanied by the highest population density rate ever recorded worldwide. When the coal mines closed in 1974, the island watched as its inhabitants suddenly departed, leaving it to abandon and desolation. Contrary to most deserted places, the island of Hashima bears no traces of human life following its brutal abandon. No graffiti or signs of destruction wreaked by Man exist: the Hashima of today has been shaped by the elements and the passage of time alone. Picking my way among the ruins, isolated in the middle of the ocean, and the fragments of the lives of men, women and children, I was struck by the island’s silence. I will thus refrain from adding any further details on Hashima, hoping that the photographs alone will be enough to express the spirit of these desolate spaces.

CHANNELING ROTHKO

David Jordan Williams (behance) - "The coastline, as I was photographing it over time resembled, to me, a series of Rothko Canvases. As the days progressed I began to notice the ways in which the formal lines of the water and clouds began to shift and change position and tone the more I felt I was working color on canvas. These images were taken in Carmel, California in May 2013."

BIG RABBIT BY GELITIN

Rabbit (Artesina, Piemont, Italy. 2005), a gigantic pink cuddly toy made primarily of straw and wool, is the work of the artist group, Gelitin. It’s so big that one begins to get an idea of how small and insignificant a Liliputian must have felt next to Gulliver. According to the legend, dozens of grannies knitted one ton of wool into the rabbit’s skin, contributing to a work, which is to remain on site for 20 years-and left to rot.

INTERSECTION | NYC-NIGHT BY NAVID BARATY

NY, Brooklyn-based photographer Navid Baraty (facebook / behance) - "Anyone who’s walked around a city looking up at the grandeur of the towering buildings knows how small you can feel amid such giants. I wanted to instead look down from those dizzying heights and capture a surreal and altered perspective on the familiar chaotic but rhythmic life below. While there’s undeniable beauty in abstracting architecture into angles and reflections, I was attracted even more by the unique character of each city that could still be perceived from far above." read more

ANTHROPOCENE BY DAVID THOMAS SMITH

From photographer David Thomas Smith’s exhibition Antropocene, images created from thousands of digital files from Google Maps, at the Copper House Gallery

Smith has created these images using a unique and groundbreaking technique. Each image is composited from thousands and thousands of thumbnails extracted as screen grabs from Google Maps, which are then reconstructed piece by piece using Photoshop to produce such incredibly detailed images, a level of detail one can only really experience in person.
