España y su Maravillas

Some days it is so incredibly hard not to miss my time in Spain. It is such a beautiful country filled with so much culture and history. My wanderlust will take me back there soon. I know it.

Links below will bring you to the images above.

Wildlife Camouflage

Graham McGeorge is an amazing wildlife photographer whose work has been featured in many highly regarded publications including National Geographic and BBC Wildlife Magazine. I stumbled upon his work with owls and his ability to capture them as “masters of disguise”. I thought they were beautiful. What do you guys think?

Maggie Taylor

A lot of design teachers would show students examples of graphic designers and photographers however none of the artists really stood out to me like Maggie Taylor.

Her artwork is so unique, she creates such a fascinating narrative with her surrealist mashups – even her technique is uncommon. By scanning her objects using an open flatbed scanner in a dark room* (pitch-black room to process photos) she creates depth in her photos.
