There are some awesome scenes in Italy in the latest season of 'Master of None'. Here in Brazil, there are tons of Italian immigrants and we get to see a lot of their culture, so Italy has always been a country Brazilians really enjoy. Most definitely it is one of those countries I will definitely visit when I get the chance. I'll probably visit vineyards, eat pasta and ride a scooter. Yeah, yeah, all the clichê stuff, but that's awesome nonetheless. Check out some awesome black and white pictures of beautiful Italia! Don't forget to click the pictures to visit more of each photographers' portfolios! Cheers. ;)
Let's start off the week with a photography series named: GRVTY by Daniel Garay Arango. What's particular about this series is the tone and also the extra mile that Daniel took really make it stand out even more from what we've seen around. It will definitely be interesting to see his process from start to finish but what I can see here is a mixture of photography and photoshop. It's really architectural project to a whole new level. Published via Behance is the work from Daniel Garay Arango who is a photographer based in Bogotá, Colombia. There isn't much more information about Daniel but you should definitely give him a follow on Behance and Instagram.

It’s a stunning take of digital photography with architecture where there’s a style and tone expressed by Jeanette. You should definitely follow her on Instagram.

With a background in photography and architecture; she enjoys offering her eye in the outlook for these special angles of shapes, lighting and shadow plays.
Lately, I’ve seen many of my friends going to Tokyo, I can understand its enthusiastic feeling for them but I would say that isn’t mutual from my end (hah!). Tokyo is a place that I would recommend to anyone that would love to experience what urban life could be like in the near future with a mixture of modern and past architecture. Everything and everywhere is something to discover on your own. Well, Clement Balavoine took a spin into the city and we get to follow his architectural photography series with an abstract tone and perspective. Clement Balavoine is a designer working in fashion and drawing. Working as a designer in places like: London, China and more; he has worked for a variety of brands. Clement also takes pictures as a passion and also being a creative to keep his mind inspired for more. Tokyo-1 is a book exploring architecture and lifestyle in the beautiful japanese city. From Harajuku to Shibuya, Omotesando to Ginza, this photobook is a calm journey through the streets of Tokyo. The name of the book refer to the fact that all the pictures have been taken in one day.
Digital Photography is such a large medium to explore, many kind of subjects or categories to shoot from. There isn’t one category that is particularly more popular (in my opinion) than others. Each one has their own flair and that’s what makes it even more enjoyable. Let’s take a look at this series by Łukasz Breitenbach entitled: Bridge in the Fog. A moody photographic series with an eerie and mysterious feel to it, quite inspiring to appreciate the contrast of the colours with the light. Łukasz Breitenbach is an artist painter and photographer based in Toruń, Poland. His photography skills is a mix of mediums in order to accomplish both realistic and abstract form into a balanced composition.
We would like to feature this lovely project for a great cause by Taylor James, a studio focusing their work into producing realistic stills, interactive animations and broadcast media but especially they are specializing in CGI combining with photography. For this project, it was a collection of videos for the treatment benefits for patients with Parkinson’s Disease, the combination of CGI and other mediums makes this work pretty unique and fitting right into its own style. The result of the campaign is just plain stunning, please take some time to watch the videos below. Hope you will like it! In partnership with PLBR, we crafted underwater ink flows to highlight the treatment benefits for patients with Parkinson’s Disease.

Having the opportunity to make the Daily Design Inspiration every single day (except for Saturdays!), it’s quite interesting of the variety of work and projects we will see and how great to see so many amazing people with so many skills and talent out there. Let’s take a closer look of what I’ve stumbled across the other day, the stunning series by Fabian Oefner called Photographic Paintings. Fabian is an artist who uses photography and science together for the passion of art who is currently based in Zurich, Switzerland. For this series, Fabian is processing two medias to merge them together into such a sublime abstract painting. Just take a look at the colours. The final work as well as the process of creation merges the characteristics of the two media. The material, that is used to create the colors and structures, is bismuth, a lead-like element. Several pounds of this metal are molten in a big pan. With a spatula, Oefner removes the top layer of the liquid material. The exposed metal immediately reacts with the air, resulting in the creation of different colored gradients. Since the artist only has limited control with the spatula and the occurring colors depend greatly on the current temperature of the metal, the final composition is very much defined by chance. The process liberates Oefner from the need of a conscious search for color and composition – a well-known approach in abstract painting. The second part of the process is dominated by the characteristics of photography. As soon as the top layer is removed and the metal is exposed to the air, it constantly changes its appearance in colors and shapes. By capturing the process with a camera, Oefner records compositions, which only exist for a few seconds. Contrary to the work with the spatula, the artist defines this part of the creation very consciously, pushing the release button only when a coherent composition appears.

As of late we’ve been pretty into architecture photography on Abduzeedo but there is all kind of photography out there. Sometimes you don’t always need that gorgeous scenery or landscape to make an interesting photo series. Let’s look at the work of Shane Griffin who is an artist over at Sunday Afternoon, an artist management and creative studio based in New York City, USA. We are exploring his series called: Chromatic, an exploration of light through an simple object like a defective glass. I can say that the results are so lovely to look at, it’s filled with vibrant colours and it’s always great to see every results while experimenting. Exploring light transitions through defective glass, as the colors fail to converge at one focus through the lens, the spectrum splits, causing beautiful emissions of hues & tones.

Berlin Interiors is a photography project shared by Thibaud Poirier and by the title you have an idea what it is about. The only difference is that Thibaud captured some insanely beautiful photos of interiors in Berlin that look like 3D renders. I am a fan of photography and have been trying to capture photos of buildings and textures however I have to admit, I don't have the eye that these guys have. The compositions, textures and colors are beautiful. I won't tell you much more, just check out after the break. Thibaud is a self taught photographer living in Paris. He is fascinated by architecture and urban environments. For more information check out http://www.thibaudpoirier.com/ Architecture Photography
It’s a new thing for me to be able to explore a city that you’ve never been to through social media platform. Especially through the eyes of photographers that actively hold superb accounts on their Instagram for example. Instagram is my favourite go-to app on my phone, It’s part of one of four main items on the deck at all times. We would like to feature the work of Kevin Krautgartner with his series called: Reduced to the max. Kevin is a fine art, landscape and architectural photographer based in Wuppertal, Germany. I really love the minimal approach of his style of photography, it’s all about the little details and how do you see things differently. Hope you will enjoy! A photographic journey through contemporary architecture More information: www.kevinkrautgartner.com.
There’s nothing more exciting for anyone to explore an unknown place, city or country. The simple fact of wandering and getting the sense of the place where you’re at and trying to experience its everyday life from the people, architecture and main attractions. Sometimes we would explore and have a specific theme in mind. Let’s take the Neo Hong Kong Series from Zaki Abdelmounim for example. On his recent trip to Hong Kong, Zaki was on a journey to explore this stunning organized chaos with streets covered with neon lights that can just remind you of cult movies like Blade Runner. Hope you’ll enjoy! Hunting for what's left of Hong Kong's iconic neon signs, an essential element of this cityscape's visual culture, covering HK's streets for years with glow, i roamed the dazzling roads aimlessly reminiscing about a dystopian past that only existed in neo-noire cult fiction movies like Blade Runner, trying to burn these lively picturesque streets in my memory before they vanish, all while figuring out how to thrive creatively in this organized chaos.

We’ve featured the work of Michał Karcz before on Abduzeedo, it’s been quite a long time ago. Looking now at his work, it’s nothing but the same impressive level of detailed art mixed with an imaginative and fantasy world. I always take the time to really look at every single details to corners from his pieces and trying to wonder what’s the story behind it. The combination of digital photography and painting totally works well for his art. The universe that Michal is taking pleasure to make are places that don’t exist coming from his dreams, desires, imagination and fears. For those you won’t know about Michal, he is an artist based in Warsaw, Poland that graduated from High School of Art in Warsaw. My inspiration comes from many artists and it doesn't matter if they get through to me by the sense of vision or hearing. I can tell that music has the biggest impact on my work. It’s an inseparable element with pictures in my mind, a kind of sound illustration to a visible scenery. These two things hit me with the strongest intensity. Since many years, many of You helped me to understand that I’ve chosen the right way for my self realization. It gave me an opportunity to show my world and to share it. This is what I’m doing, this is what I love to do and it’s still not everything what I want to say. Each day I see more, I’m exploring more things which I want to share with You. This website is the key to my world. This is what I have collected in my soul since I was born until now. More information: http://www.michalkarcz.com.
