Antonio MoraSpanish photographer Antonio Mora fuses standard portraits with landscape, animal, and abstract photography, resulting in extraordinary combinations. His ongoing Dream Portraits transform two separate images by combining them into one frame and thereby reconfiguring their visual power.

Playing with opacity and composition, Mora’s keen eye finds a likeness in unlikely pairs, turning the limbs of a tree into an extension of a persons face or the profile of a woman into a beautiful tidal wave. Each image holds its own unique and complementary union of visual elements.

Ultimately, the pairings result in a dreamy blend of ideas. Caught somewhere between two thoughts, the images represent a sort of transitioning or in-between phase of consciousness. There’s a beautiful mystery to Mora’s photography that is both curiously mind-boggling and entrancing.

From an exquisitely detailed close-up of a delicate flower to sweeping, panoramic garden vistas, this book showcases the talents of some of the world’s best garden photographers, both professional and amateur.

Huang XiaoliangHuang Xiaoliang is a young emerging artist from Hunan who is currently working in Beijing.

His photographic works are about memory and childhood imagination. They are also about a China of the past reflecting the artist’s view of disappearing social and cultural practices. The works contain themes that could be based on childhood fantasy and play but are left open to interpretation. The ambiguous nature of Huang Xiaoliang’s work allows for the audience to develop their own imaginative narratives from the photographs through his layering of symbols and the compositional grouping of figures within different settings. The artist adds to this quality by including poetic pieces of text that create further intrigue.
