Hotel Paradise
by Giulio Fabbri


This image represents the positive side of the spirit of adaptability of mankind; the people are real figures with an apparently normal and peaceful life despite the habitat in which they live is a disturbing-looking urban agglomeration. The work is made with many shots from whic...

by Matthias Jung


I love to combine the security of being at home with physical freedom. The houses are from Menton in France. The landscape is from the Island of Sylt in Gemany. The full title is "When Claudine drinks coffee she often thinks of the sea".

The Game Is Over But Live Goes On
by Hardijanto Budiman


This picture is a Surreal Metaphor which tells about people's reactions when they loose in a game. Some could get over it and some feel desperately down! The image represents contradiction colors in my mind and my Surrealism soul blurs the borders between fantasy & reality.

by Tom Finke


here are countless visual clues threaded throughout these images, but they don't add up to any singular solution. I think it is one of the strengths of this work that it brings together a great variety of fragments without trying to construct any evident whole. All images are mad...

The Destruction of Time
by Peter Hammer


We are slaves to time. We work more or less fixed hours on fixed days of the week; have meals at the same time each day, and watch TV programs at fixed times. Clocks rule our lives and in the end we rebel and wish that time didn't exist and we were free to do anything we want at...

Magic 2

This image started as a shot of the birds roosting in my neighbor’s tree waiting for me to fill the feeders. I loved the silhouette of it, all branches and birds. I completed one version of a shot that morning, and began to work on other shots with different treatments. This one...

Gauguin's Dream by the Fish Pond

This image is from a series of photos in homage to great artists and thinkers. The original source photograph is of folded paper. Very often in my process the subject matter of the source photo becomes irrelevant to the end result.
