Drew Emerging, 2014

For Manifest, photographer Kristine Potter reinterprets quintessential visions of the American West, reframing the Colorado Western Slope and its remote inhabitants in such a way that distorts and obscures traditional legends of the past. Here, the emblematic cowboy and his mountains are abandoned for lonesome farmers and forgotten wildness, lost souls and phantasms.

La Llareta #0308-2B31 (2,000+ years old; Atacama Desert, Chile)

What looks like moss covering rocks is actually a very dense, flowering shrub that happens to be a relative of parsley, living in the extremely high elevations of the Atacama Desert.

Dead Huon Pine adjacent to living population segment #1211-3609 (10,500 years old, Mount Read, Tasmania)

Fire destroyed much of this clonal colony of Huon Pines (as seen in this photograph) on Mount Read, Tasmania, but a substantial portion of it survived. The age of the colony was discovered by carbon dating ancient pollen found at the bottom of a nearby lakebed, which was genetically matched to the living colony.

For The Oldest Living Things in the World, Brooklyn-based photographer Rachel Sussman traveled to all seven earthly continents in search of the planet’s most resilient living organisms. Working backwards from the year zero, the photographer collaborated with some of the world’s top biologists and researchers to track down individual plants, corals, fungi, and bacteria that have persisted through at least 2,000 years to arrive at the present moment in human history.

Since growing up in the wooded landscape of Central New York, the artist has felt a profound connection with nature, one which she returns to by capturing solitary women as they gallop through verdant pastures or dip their toes in passing streams.

‘Sky Studies': A Photographer Creates Optical Illusions

SeisKyle_08

For Sky Studies, artist Kyle Seis experiments with our visual perception, constructing photographic installations that challenge our notion of the celestial sphere. Where the sky itself is multidimensional, it is most often reproduced in visual art a flat expanse of blue. Seis’s optical illusions undermine traditional representations of sky, forcing us to consider the tension between an infinite reality and what is observable on its surface.

Photo du Jour: Swan Lake

Robert_Rutoed_01

Swan Lake, from the series ‘Right Time Right Place’

Robert Rutöd loves serendipity, irony and what happens when they converge. The Austrian-born photographer explores the concept to its fullest spectrum in his series Right Time Right Place. Wandering about Europe for 5 years, Rutöd observed and captured instances brimming with contradiction, often painfully funny or unexpectedly tragic. The series questions whether luck is imaginary and how strange it is to find oneself in the exactly wrong place when it happens to be just the right time to document it.
