Surreal Photo Manipulations By Ex-Ballet Dancer Kylli Sparre
Young or old, it’s never too late to change directions in life and begin chasing your dreams instead of just your obligations. Photographer Kylli Sparre is a perfect example of this – she discovered that she wanted to be a photographer only after completing professional ballet school.
“When the studies were over, I realized it wasn’t the path for me. I have been searching for an outlet for my creativity ever since. [A few] years ago I found it in photography and never looked back,” writes the artist on her website. The influence of her professional ballet experience is clear in her current photography work – the models in her surreal and dream-like pictures are filled with grace, effortless poise, elegance and beauty.

A new selection of photographs both dark, poetic and surreal by Diggie Vitt, a young American photographer uses her camera and masterful photo manipulation to create otherworldly scenes of strange beauty.
Now based in Los Angeles. We already talked about his work with “Flame and Gravity – 21 Photographs by Diggie Vitt“. Diggie Vitt has just completed a 365 Project, in which he created a new photograph a day during a whole year…
The first picture is me and my twinbrother when we were 3 years old. The second picture is me on my brother’s funeral. He was 18 years old and killed himself. I don’t care if this ruins your blog. I want you to reblog this and make a statement.
The first picture is worldfamous. Even Kendall Jenner posted it on her instagram account.We were on the news because no one knew that the picture was 15 years old. But people need to realize that life isn’t as pretty as the picture tells us. Life is cruel. Just like our society. And I’ve lost my best friend because of it. Teenagers are suppose to have fun, instead of thinking about killing themselves.
I hope this will get to Kendall Jenner and she’ll defend my statement. Because no one will probably listen to me…
Saw this on the news!! Veel sterkte lieverd xx
can calm itself,
so can you.

Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.
