Thanks again to my friend Derek who passed along the original post—he also called the video “Very ‘poser-y’ which it is… Well, Dr. Freud, what do you think about my photographs of naked women?? All joking aside, some very beautiful light painting and wonderful use of the bromoil process by Emil Schildt.

The Stunning Work Of Michael Massaia

I’ve discovered a photographer whose work I really love: Michael Massaia. He creates stunning black and white images of desolation and emptiness, but not in a way that leaves one depressed, but more in a way that leaves one fascinated.
