CEMENT ECLIPSES @ CHIAPAS MEXICO
Artist Isaac Cordal (tumblr / facebook) - “With the simple act of miniaturization and thoughtful placement, Isaac Cordal magically expands the imagination of pedestrians finding his sculptures on the street. Cement Eclipses is a critical definition of our behavior as a social mass. The art work intends to catch the attention on our devalued relation with the nature through a critical look to the collateral effects of our evolution. With the master touch of a stage director, the figures are placed in locations that quickly open doors to other worlds. The scenes zoom in the routine tasks of the contemporary human being”.
“Earthlight is the partial illumination of the dark portion of the moon’s surface by light reflected from the Earth and from the Earth’s airglow. It is also known as Earthshine [or] Planetshine, the Moon’s ashen glow, or the old Moon in the new Moon’s arms.”

Time Slice by Richard Silver
The idea behind the “Time Sliced” Project was to photograph iconic world buildings at sunset and capture the changing light from day to night in a single image. Experimenting with a few different kinds of processes I came up with the “Sliced” idea. I decided to Slice time and light showing the progression of the day from left to right.
I, Leonardo is an imagined “autobiography” of Leonardo da Vinci by Ralph Steadman.
About the book:
Ralph Steadman’s obsession with Leonardo da Vinci led him to Italy – to stand in the places where genius stood and relive the sensations which preoccupied a mind that yearned to fly.
In his distinct, ingenious and anarchic style, Steadman presents key events from the life of Leonardo; among them the painting of the Last Supper, the Mona Lisa and his experiments in flight. The result is a work of sustained brilliance and triumph of imagination.
Red Ice - White Ice, 2008 / 2009.
Red Ice-White Ice is a series made at night whilst circling around icebergs in a small inflatable boat off the north west coast of Greenland in sub zero temperatures.
The photographs were made using red or white flash to reflect the temperature changes taking place in this fragile wilderness.
