Let me just start this off by saying it is just not fair that all of these photographers live in these super lush, forest-y wonderlands! Clearly I need to relocate! Elizabeth Gadd’s photos are taken in the most beautiful places! She was born and is based near Vancouver, Canada. She has several different photo projects, my favorite being “Breath” which is where most of these photos (after the jump) are from.

How about some more eye candy y’all (saying y’all makes me feel like Hannah Montanna, plz forgive me lol)?! Phillip Schumacher is a young photographer who lives in Germany. He has been into Photography since 2009. The talent of these photographers I’ve managed to come across just blows my mind and make me wish I was more creative and had a big ass camera! Take a looksie at his pics and show him some love on his sites. Especially check out the moon pictures..I don’t know what it is about them but whenever a photographer takes a photo and puts a moon in it and makes it look THAT real, UGH I just LOVE it! So cool!

I can’t get enough of Installation Art!! This artists name is Kate MccGwire and she works primarily with feathers such as Magpie, Pigeon, and Crow feathers. Pigeon feathers are her favorite to work with because she likes the idea of taking something that people generally thing is dirty “rat’s with wings“, and make something so beautiful out of it. She describes her installations as being “ dreamlike, but dirty, but animal, but sort of wooden“. They symbolize power and the art of enchantment.
Over the years Kate has built up a connection with racing pigeon societies all over the country. Once the pigeons molt about, 200 individuals send her envelopes FULL of feathers!
Kate’s inspiration comes from the river her work studio is located on. When the weather is bad the river moves as a torrent that has directional turning and churning which inspire her installations that appear to be flowing like water out of pipes.
My favorite thing about Kate MccGwire’s art would have to be the names. She says that she chooses titles for each of her installations that are “bodily, visceral, and immediate” . They all describe a certain feeling that anyone could have.

I am newly obsessed with the website society6.com and all the crazy funky art it features. Every time I get on that website I find myself going to this gal’s section. Her name is Charmaine Olivia and she is an AMAZING artist!! I used one of her pieces for my site background (the little birdie) let’s hope she doesn’t mind. Be sure to check her out here. Here are some of my favorites that she’s done!
