‘Porcelain Figurines’ by Martin Klimas

Using a sound activated shutter release (a technique most associated with the work of Harold Edgerton) Martin Klimas has created this stunning series which suspends time and objects.

What I find most intriguing about this series is how through destruction the porcelain figures appear to come alive and are full of movement. Although we know they are being dropped and smashed the figures look like they are almost rising up and breaking out of their confines.

There is a great skill in these images too, Klimas has created images that could never be reproduced, each figure breaks in a unique way and within microseconds of these images being made the objects exist only as a pile of porcelain on the floor. There is something quite beautiful in the idea of life through destruction.

Saying all of this, I think these images would be even better as real sculptures, the beauty and intricacy would be breathtaking.

The work of LuluSeason

I came across LuluSeason’s work recently and fell in love with it. Her original characters are so well developed you would think they were from Shonen Jump!

Also her use of colours breaks away from the pastel tones of most fan art. Leading into the sci-fi genre.

These are *AlwaysxInfinity and *xxEmiChanxx ‘s characters, Star and Andromeda.
Original – Little Red Riding Hood.
Character Design Sheet of Louhi

And even her fan art of existing anime takes the characters to a whole new level.

I will 100% be contacting her to see if she will work on the unnamed project with me.

Elisa Wessel is a Visual Artist and Photographer. She started in 2001 and since then has created a great portfolio of work. The thing i love about her work is the combination of generic high fashion and advertising poses, make up and general styling, and how she combines that with brilliant lighting and editing to create stunning images that make you stop and stare.
