BEAUTIFULLY ELEGANT DANCERS POSE ALONG CITY STREETS
Australian photographer Lisa Tomasetti has worked as a visual artist and film stills photographer for the past 23 years. Her eye for cinematic drama comes through in her dance photography, a collection of images in which she is able to capture the beautiful elegance of ballet dancers set against the more rough, gritty urban city streets of Paris, Tokyo, and New York.

Chinese photographer Yao Lu’s series “New Landscapes” is a startling but creative commentary on the state of the environment in China. Yao recreates traditional landscape paintings with photographs of real-life trash heaps covered with construction netting, then digitally manipulates the photos to add trees, buildings, and people.From his artist’s bio:
Lying somewhere between painting and photography, between the past and the present, Yao Lu’s work speaks of the radical mutations affecting nature in China as it is subjected to rampant urbanization and the ecological threats that endanger the environment.
His work is currently on display at the Bruce Silverstein Gallery.
Doug Perrine captured these stunning photographs in the Maldives. The particular location (Vaadhoo Island) has a concentrated population of bioluminescent phytoplankton. Bioluminescence is a natural chemical reaction which occurs when a micro-organism in the water reacts with oxygen. When washed ashore by the tides, the phytoplankton’s chemical energy is turned into light energy, illuminating the waves.
