‘Sky Studies': A Photographer Creates Optical Illusions



For Sky Studies, artist Kyle Seis experiments with our visual perception, constructing photographic installations that challenge our notion of the celestial sphere.

Photo du Jour: Swan Lake


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.
