Simple Yet Stunning Photographs by Erik Almas

“I try to go somewhere that I haven’t been before. I try to do something new, something that’s better than what I’ve done in the past,” says photographer Erik Almas in one of his interviews. He loves working in the advertising industry where he can develop more his passion for photography and at the same time satisfy his enthusiasm for traveling.

Almas shoots not only landscapes but also works for fashion and advertising. The fashion images are all focused on the person while on some, the person are just part of the greater landscape. The ideas are simple but the outcomes and finished photos are stunning.

He is drawn to quiet moments and to beautiful places. He has received numerous awards like IPA, Winner Special effects 2010, Photo District News- Pix 2010. Grand Prize Winner, Photo District News- Pix 2007, 2008, 2009 to name a few and was featured in Luerzers Archive’s 200 Best Advertising photographers Worldwide, 2008/09, 2010/11 and the upcoming 2012/13.

An interest in street photography-particularly in London streets, a fascination with people and how they live their lives is what drives Matt Stuart to create this photography project. The subjects in his photos are merely strangers going on in their everyday pattern of life.

Today, in a world where almost everything is fake or photoshopped, the idea of street photography, where people capture raw moments- what is in the street, the park or the museum and showing that this actually existed is I think more significant than ever.

Stuart says in one of his interviews that he was often mistaken as a paparazzi. Over the years he learned what to do and what not to do. He may look like a stalker but his intentions are not invading privacy but rather exposing the truth in the streets.

Doppelgangers by Francois Brunelle

Doppelgangers by Francois Brunelle

The Doppelgangers project by Francois Brunelle looks at how strangers share not only their visual appearance but also captures a view of how the world looks at them. These are portraits of people that don’t have family ties but have intriguing similarities that sometimes some look like identical twins themselves.

Brunelle spent 12 years looking for real life doppelgangers and photographing them. And this unique idea started to draw him some well-deserved attention. I’m stunned at how this photo project compares the similarities of these people in dark contrast.

Besides photography, he also wrote The Seven Essential Tools for the Creative Photographer where he shared his own artistic skills for aspiring and professional photographers.
