Mark Mawson – Photography

We love Mark Mawson’s abstract work! Using smart lighting techniques and coloured dyes in water, he is able to create images that are so arresting you can’t help but be lost in them!

Jono Wood – Photography

Jono Wood is a South African freelance photographer based in Johannesburg. The project of his that we’re sharing with you today, New Year’s Day Durban Beach, is of particular importance in the current South African context. Spurred to action by bigoted and racist Facebook posts from white South Africans about Durban beach front on New Year’s Day – he set out to photograph the throngs of people and the spectacle that is Durban beach front, in order to remind us all that we’re all humans.

These undeniable images that capture so much of the human experience serve as a sharp rebuke to people who would seek to dehumanise fellow South Africans. Really, they show how photography can be vitally important to our society.

Amazing work!

Aleksandr Petrosyan Photography

Aleksandr Petrosyan is a Russian photographer who captures a side of Russia that many people many see or even perceive. With a focus on the slightly weird or offbeat, we see so much humanity in these portraits of Russian life. Given our current political climate in the West, this kind of work is so important – reminding us all that we’re humans after all!

Enda Bowe – Photography

Enda Bowe is an Irish photographer with a keen eye for finding something in the mundane. His project ‘At Mirrored River’, which we’ve shared some examples from here is a self-published work that looks at life in small-town Ireland and elevates the mundane and the ordinary into something special.

Whether it is considered portraits, landscapes or almost documentary photography – Bowe’s work shows he has the most important thing any photographer can have: The ability to truly see.

A is for Albert

What a fun piece of work! This interactive tale of the life of Albert uses a really smart navigation idea, beautiful animations and great illustration. It uses the alphabet to tell the story, with each letter bringing to life the stories of parenting and child rearing.

So cute and so smart!

Have a look at the website here.

This was created in partnership between Studio Lovelock, the design agency and Matt Collins, the web developer.
