Photography

Maybe its the hippy in me, or perhaps its my lifelong love of fluro but this to me is a perfect piece of land art (…can it be land art if its painted fluro??). Visible across the desert from Las Vegas, Nevada, and standing at a height of thirty to thirty five foot, are seven large scale totems built from balanced, painted, locally-sourced boulders.

Created by renowned Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone’s public artwork Seven Magic Mountains is an exhibition that will run for two years. This work sits actually and symbolically mid way between the natural and the artificial, between the mountains and the buzz of Las Vegas.

I only once planned to go to Las Vegas, with the crackpot idea that I would marry one of my best friends. Silly, of course, and thankfully we thought better of it in the cold light of day, however perhaps I could take the very same friend to visit this glorious work of art.

Or, perhaps there is a client brave enough, who would let me take this as inspiration for an stand out garden sculpture… come on client, show yourself!

Better known for his fashion and still life photography, Phillippe Jarrigeon fell in love with the gardens at Château de Marqueyssac whilst location scouting and captured these enchanting images for Pin Up magazine.

Insanely surreal and appealing to the child, adult and mad hatter in all of us.

Today is the day we wish to praise the work of leading London based photographer Dan Tobin Smith.

In amongst his expert still life portfolio is a magical selection of shots that capture nature perfectly. Using a round mirror, Dan creates the illusion that there is a world within a world.

The results are both surreal and utterly beautiful.
