Alone in the Night Photography Series

Alone in the Night Photography Series

I would like to share the work from Axel Corjon, a creative director by day and a wanderer by night. You must recognize some of his design projects like jetlag.photos or fontface.ninja/. We are featuring his Alone in the Night Photography Series where it's a series of photos taken at night. I do agree with Axel that there is indeed something special about exploring places at night. Everything is different especially the atmosphere where utterly comes your creativity to see things differently. Make sure to follow Axel's work on Instagram. I love shooting late at night. It's always a special moment, it's off time. People are mostly sleeping, making the night hours somehow unreal. people are making these hours vanish, I embrace them. It's also very disturbing discovering streets at nights. The light and colors are always changing due to artificial lights sources (cars, reflection, traffic lights, etc...) and make even the most known places look different. Also, you cannot see very far, therefore you create this scary feeling where you never know what's near you. it triggers something primal that force you to be more aware of your surroundings.

I would like to pass on the mic to my buddy Kris who did an amazing job, so check it out! More Links Personal Site Instagram Behance Photography

Photography with Pixel 2 in Japan

Photography with Pixel 2 in Japan

Francois, our chief editor, has been on a journey to Asia with his family. He's been wandering around Japan and Singapore for a more than a month living the culture and trying to capture everything with his Pixel 2 camera. I love seeing Francois photos and how much he cares about the craft of photography. This post is an example and it was originally shared on his Behance profile.  During the month of October 2018, Francois' (@wander_four) went on this crazy journey to Japan. They decided to visit West Japan which would include a trip of touring hand-picked cities from Tokyo all the way to Hiroshima. In total, they have traveled through 13 cities, it has been an extraordinary adventure that they will surely never forget. As an ally to this crazed escapade, I had the best smartphone camera (in my opinion) to hold and capture any moments along the way. I have been a Google Pixel user since the very first Pixel. But the Pixel 2 has been incredibly impressive especially with the camera. Rocking only a 12.2MP f/1.8 lens, this phone truly shines through its software. So Francois decided to share some of his favorites shots from Japan. He bookmarked about 200 shots but here are the first few. Just to add a little bit more glitter to the Pixel 2's camera abilities, all the following images are unedited. Enjoy!

Exploring Istanbul at Night - Mirror World

Exploring Istanbul at Night - Mirror World

Elsa Bleda is a photographer and visual artist based in Johannesburg, South Africa. She has been taking photographs of Istanbul, Johannesburg and more; she has a distinct style that would immediately make you remind of Blade Runner. When you think of this movie, you would think about scenes from cities from Tokyo, Hong Kong and etc. But it's much more than that when you think of it, the same inspiration can also be taken from any cities around the world. It's all into the perception of what you see around you and being inspired of the movie Blade Runner. Please enjoy Elsa's work, it's quite inspirational!

Innercity Noir - a black & white photography series

Innercity Noir - a black & white photography series

Epaillard + Machado is a photographer currently based in Paris, France. I have said many times on ABDZ but to me; black & white photography is a style that is hard to accomplish. I mean you can easily snap a filter but to actually conceptualize beforehand is an art. I just love some of his pieces especially on the contrast or the play with the light. I would totally advise you guys to give him some love on his Instagram. He has beautiful work and needs more love from all of us. Check it out! More Links Personal Site Behance Instagram Photography

The River Veins Series by Tom Hegen

The River Veins Series by Tom Hegen

Tom Hegen is a photographer and designer from Munich, Germany. He shared that stunning photography series: The Rivers Veins which are during the time when the glaciers would melt in Iceland. As I quote from Tom: "ice blue water veins their way across the black volcanic sand, creating most peculiar patterns in the landscape." It's hard to tell if it's actually a picture or pure CGI, I trust on Tom's expertise to share with us the amazing wonders of the Earth. What do you think? As the glaciers in Iceland melt, ice blue water veins their way across black volcanic sand, creating most peculiar patterns in the landscape. Those scenes have an element of duality – it is hard to tell whether a picture was taken from a macro perspective or from a small airplane around 3000 feet in the air.

Stunning Photography and Photo Retouching - Etiópia

Stunning Photography of Ethiopia by Hugo Santarem

Hugo Santarem is a photographer from Brazil and in 2016 he took a global ancestry DNA test to know his origins. From the result of this test, he decided to travel to the interior of the countries his ancestors came from. So far he has been to Kenia and Ethiopia. Before going to different countries he traveled to the interior of Brazil, spent some time in a quilombola community called Lagoa da Pedra in Tocantins state; went to the south to know the Gauchos and to the northwest to see the life of the cowboys in Piauí state. His main gal was to know even more about the beginning of these cultures and also about my origin. This post is a bit of what he saw in Ethiopia and it's part of what he calls The Project. And I, like so many Brazilians, didn't know exactly where my ancestries came from, and the project is based on this, self-knowledge, discovery. From the result of the DNA test, I decided to travel to those places. When I saw the result and where I had come from, I created a deeper relationship and a huge desire to know more about them. The Project is about this, the connection with other people and different kinds of culture, it creates respect and empathy, not just for the Brazil interior, but for the interior of every place in the world -Hugo says. He also adds: "We are more connected than we think. Deep down, the base of the Project is to respect the differences, to see people in the same way you see yourself. To feel connected to other people. To show a true interest to learn more about them. I believe that this is the journey that all of us should take, traveling or not."

Architecture Photography: Dramatis personae IV Series

Architecture Photography: Dramatis personae IV Series

Sebastian Weiss is a photographer and a columnist at the AD Architectural Digest Germany, based in Hamburg, Germany. His work has been featured in many architectural publications and now on ABDZ. I love the perspective shared withing Sebastian's photographs, it's a strong emphasis on the appearances of buildings. It's not an easy task to combine first of all the scene with the light and contrast. He has done such a beautiful job, it's quite inspiring! Dramatis personae IV as the next part of the architecture series contains buildings from Aachen, Berlin, Cologne, Duisburg, Hamburg, Herne, Magdeburg, Milan, Orivesi. Paris and Strasbourg. „Dramatis personae” represents public faces that deliberately restrains the identity of the object in order to concentrate on its public performance.

Architecture Photography of the Fluid Heydar Aliyev Center

Architecture Photography of the Fluid Heydar Aliyev Center

Abdelmalek Bensetti shared a beautiful architecture photography post on his Behance profile. The photos are of the Heydar Aliyev Center, a 57,500 m² building complex in Baku, Azerbaijan designed by Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid and noted for its distinctive architecture and flowing, curved style that eschews sharp angles. The Center houses a conference hall (auditorium), a gallery hall and a museum. The project is intended to play an integral role in the intellectual life of the city. Located close to the city center, the site plays a pivotal role in the redevelopment of Baku. The Heydar Aliyev Center represents a fluid form which emerges by the folding of the landscape's natural topography and by the wrapping of individual functions of the Center. All functions of the Center, together with entrances, are represented by folds in a single continuous surface. This fluid form gives an opportunity to connect the various cultural spaces whilst at the same time, providing each element of the Center with its own identity and privacy. As it folds inside, the skin erodes away to become an element of the interior landscape of the Center. Architecture photography All the pictures were taken by Abdelmalek Bensetti with a Canon 100D - 10-18mm, 18-55mm & 70-300mm.
