Monkeyman's Fantastical Surrealistic Images

"French Art Director/Photographer Pierre Beteille (aka Monkeyman) said ” I am not a photographer or an artist, I just make images … I shoot very average or even bad photos that I try to improve thanks to Photoshop …“ His photoshopped images definitely stand out above so many others’ attempts to make the same type of images. Pierre is truly one of the most original artist I’ve seen this month… Bravo Mr Monkey !! see his website and Flickr."

Incredibly Gorgeous Lookbook for Some Awesome Bling

If I'm not mistaken, this is a part of a "lookbook for beautiful Jewelry! Patrizio di RENZO photographed designer MAJO FRUITHOF’s latest jewelry collection. The photographer was in charge of the concept, artwork and creative direction. Take a look at how he captured the bling of the rings, chokers, cuff links and bracelets."

Quote from cyanatrendland There are more wonderful pix there. This stuff is just f*cking amazing. Don't you think?

Girls in Miniature Villages - 'Teenage Stories' :The Gorgeous Work of Julia Fullerton-Batten

This is the brilliant and astounding work of photographer Julia Fullerton-Batten. This gallery is called "Teenage Fantasies". Let me allow the artist explain in her own words(via Wicked Halo whose link appears next to the author's website)

"The girls I photograph in these miniature villages interact with them much like children interact with their real surroundings, living inside their own dreams and fantasies rather than living in a specific house on a specific street. In their minds they can be giants moving through our world whilst always remaining separate to it, cocooned in their own dream like existence."


On a completely different note, there are people who visit this site regularly and I have a tremendous appreciation for that. However, a few of those folks copy the images to use, I suppose, on their own site. I don't have a problem with. Quite the contrary as long as you give me credit by linking to this blog just as I ALWAYS credit my sources. I don't steal stuff without giving people their dues. So please stop doing it! You know who you are!
