Surreal images created with an iPhone


Surreal Images created with an iPhoneA photographer has created surreal photographs using his iPhone.

German-based art director Robert Jahns, who goes by the Instagram handle nois7, has created amazing images using editing apps including VSCOcam, ArtStudio and Snapseed.

Most of the photographs were taking during his travels, shot with his iPhone or DSLR.

Others are composites of stock images or collaborations with other photographers. Jahns’ editing process varies from 2 hours to several days.

Creating surreal and intricate manipulations with an iPhone, he fundamentally explores subversion of reality and medium.

Photographer documents world's oldest trees

Beth Moon, a San Francisco based photographer, has documented some of the oldest, rarest and largest trees in the world.

Using the rare practice of plantium and palladium printing in order to make the photos themselves look old, Moon’s choice of medium underscores the age of her subject matter.

Moon writes: “Standing as the Earth’s oldest and living monuments, I believe these symbolic trees will take on greater significance, especially at a time when our focus is directed at finding better ways to live with the environment.”

An adaptable pop-up habitat


Pop-up habitatPeople’s Architecture Office has created a pop-up habitat that can be adapted to its environment.

The system consists of units made from gold photographer’s reflective panels, which can stand alone or become part of a larger geometric ‘mega-structure’.

The lightweight habitat, which has been used at exhibitions, can act as tunnels, canopies, exhibition spaces and auditoriums – as well as intriguing pieces of art scattered around a landscape.

Bernhard Lang’s ‘Aerial Views Adria’ documents hundreds of colourful beach umbrellas along the Adriatic coastline in Italy, capturing lines of patterned circles on a sandy backdrop.
