Ray Collins Wave Photography

Photography is all about capturing that perfect moment in time. In fact, photography is just as much about time as it is about visuals. It’s hard to grasp at first, but the work below shows just how important it can be.

This work from Ray Collins, shows us the vital importance of time in taking great photographs. His wave photos are at once architectural and ephemeral. Capturing waves as they form and break – the perfect moment gives them real weight and heft – more than they have in reality. One can almost imagine these waves as mountains or hills made of real mass, rather than just water.

Li Wei Photography

Li Wei is a Chinese photographer who loves to fly. His work is a mixture of the profound and the fun, utilising photo manipulation techniques to create fantastical images where people fly far above the earth – free to do as they please.

It’s such a breath of fresh air (pun not intended) to see work with such a different view. It’s meaningful but not serious and fun without being frivolous.

Red Cross Charity Arcade

We love this work from Swedish agency akestam.holst for the Red Cross in Sweden. The idea (like all great ideas) is so simple yet so clever. Instead of collecting money for the arcade machine owners, these arcade machines collect money for the Red Cross in Sweden.

What a brilliant way to make use of your time (and your foreign coins) when you’re waiting in an airport – and it’s all for a good cause. Our hats go off to them!
