When you (literally and figuratively) hold a magnifying glass up to some of nature’s more diminutive wonders, some breathtaking sights are revealed. We’ve seen artists examine mushrooms, sand and even the human eye. Naturalist photographer Samuel Jaffe’s thing is caterpillars. Having grown up in Eastern Massachusetts with a distinct curiosity about the world around him and a penchant for photography, Jaffe’s development of a project to raise and photograph native caterpillars seems natural. Jaffe’s documentation of a variety of caterpillars on black backgrounds not only highlight the beautiful patterns and textures from a scientific and investigatory standpoint, they also make exquisite photographs all on their own. You might even catch a hint of personality from these other-worldly creatures in Jaffe’s amazing shots.

Advertisements

There’s something to be said for visually arresting advertising… when few or no words are necessary. And it’s ironic that this series promoting, of all things, Scrabble, uses barely any words at all. Yet we immediately get what is being conveyed. Russian/Ukrainian creative agency Twiga developed these terrific ads that could probably stand on their own as surrealist prints. They really are superb examples of Photoshop mastery. We’d love to see more… the possibilities are endless. Loosely reminiscent of this campaign.
