On thin ice – documentary photography by Ciril Jazbec

January 15, 2015

On thin ice

Documentary photographer Ciril Jazbec created a series of photos on Greenland and its people, called “On thin ice”. He captured the Uunartoq tribe, who are one of the last people with subsistence hunting traditions. However, due to the climate change the weather became warm and unpredictable, which endangers not only their heritage, but also their lives. As the ice becomes thinner, they are forced to leave behind their homeland and ways of living.

You can find more photos on Ciril Jazbec’s website and buy his book “On thin ice” here.

Fascinating snow art by Simon Beck

December 11, 2014

Simon Beck Snow art

Need some winter project inspiration? Simon Beck, a mapmaker from Southern England has been making intricate designs by walking on snow. He often starts with planning the design on paper, then by using a compass and his orienteering skills recreates the drawings on flat snow surfaces. Beck often makes his patterns near skiing pistes in Alps, so people can appreciate them from a ski lift. Obviously, this kind of art is impermanent and disappears under fresh snow.

Check out more of Simon Beck’s art pieces on his Facebook Page. Also, he’s got an extensive About page where you can learn a lot about his technique and ways to make your own snow art.Simon Beck Snow art Simon Beck snow art Simon Beck snow art Simon Beck snow art Simon Beck snow art Simon Beck snow art Simon Beck snow art Simon Beck snow art Simon Beck snow art Simon Beck snow art

Wildlife photographer, tour operator and fund-raiser Paul Goldstein has spent many years in Africa photographing the Masai Mara Natural Reserve in Kenya. His images of beautiful sunsets and sunrises, with black silhouettes of animals, are a celebration of African nature, still wild and untamed. Paul also believes in ethical treating of the wildlife, trying not to startle his models.

Head out to Paul Goldstein’s website for more pictures from Africa and prints of his works.

Mexican designer and illustrator Aldo Crusher has created a series of informative posters for Magazine Aire’s section “Cosmopolis”. The bright, colourful designs feature cities around the world, along with their attractions, most notable buildings and general topography.

It’s a shame he doesn’t sell those posters, as I’d love to have one on my wall. Anyway, take a look at Aldo Crusher’s portfolio on Behance, it’s neat!
