Thomas Barbey‘s surrealistic images fascinate by their real unreality. He grew up in Geneva, Switzerland, and started drawing seriously at the age of 13, using black “encre de Chine” and gouaches for color. His influences were Philippe Druillet, Roger Dean and H.R. Giger. After living in Geneva for 17 years he decided to move to Italy, in Milan for 15 years making a living as a successful recording artist, lyricist and fashion photographer. Finaly he resides in Las Vegas and travels the world, taking pictures wherever he goes.

Another amazing series of ice landscapes, ‘A Portrait of Ice’ by Caleb Cain Marcus. Grey and blue toned glaciers urge you to travel! Yet the quality of the shades give the photographs a paint-like quality. Just beautiful!

Photographer Olaf Otto Becker trekked through 2,500 miles of Greenland’s western coastline over a year one period in order to shoot these amazing series titled Above Zero. Now that is really hot in Athens I would love to be there!

Hans Silvester is a German-born artist that followed a good number of career paths, including forays into journalism, philanthropy and environmental activism. Born in Lorrach, Germany in 1938, he graduated from the School of Fribourg in 1955. After that he became a traveler and photographer.
His oeuvre includes studies of various regions around the world, including France, Central America, Japan, Portugal, Egypt, Tunisia, Hungary, Peru, Italy and Spain throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s. After that he turned his attention toward Europe’s nature preserves, the expansive Calavon river valley, and the Amazon. Then he moved on to the Great Indian Desert, documenting the lives of women in Rajasthan, before publishing a number of book series devoted to locations such as the colorful landscapes of Provence and the Greek Isles.
Silvester’s recent work features the Surma and Mursi people of the Omo Valley in southern Ethiopia, presenting the beauty of the tribes’ ancient tradition of temporary body decoration. His photographs reveal the use of bright mineral paints to embellish the skin and the use of flora and fauna to fashion spectacular headpieces and body accessories.
