Window Seat

Kost shot over 3,000 aerial artworks from commercial airplane windows over a five-year period, and the experience inspired her to create a book described as a “unique creative seminar.”’

Manipulated Photos of Abandoned Buildings

“Los Angeles-based artist Ed Freeman transform abandoned fast food restaurants and gas stations into objects of startling beauty. ‘All have been manipulated to enhance and ennoble these very ordinary structures that might otherwise go unnoticed and unappreciated,’ he explains. In some cases Freeman only changes the background of the original shot; other images have been completely overhauled with the magic of Photoshop.”

Lara Zankoul

“At the young age of 25, Lebanese artist, Lara Zankoul, is a part-time economist and a part-time fine arts photographer. The self-taught photographer calls her work a necessary escape from her monotonous day job, and this sense of escapism is the most pervasive theme in her work. Her website states:

‘Symbols are omnipresent in her body of work and characters are anonymous and timeless, making her images universal. The concepts are initially expressions of her subconscious as they are spontaneous visuals in her mind. Her photographic process resides in recreating or mimicking these cerebral moments rather than capturing reality.'”
