Parker Fitzgerald | on Tumblr (USA) - Overgrowth

Parker Fitzgerald is a traveling photographer currently living in Portland, Oregon. He enjoys Japan, Lord of the Rings, Polaroid, Kodak film, and Legend of Zelda.

Overgrowth is his new and ongoing artistic collaboration with floral designer Riley Messina (Erba Floral Studio). Inspired by a pursuit of beauty, Riley combines classically thoughtful botanical designs with Parker’s carefully considered film images in an expression of the multifaceted relationship between humankind and nature. The two artists contrast anonymous portraiture with sweeping landscapes in an attempt to capture both the malleable and untamed aspects of the natural world.

Erik Johansson (Sweden/Germany)

Erik Johansson is a full time photographer and retoucher from Sweden based in Berlin, Germany. He works on both personal and commissioned projects and creates sometimes street illusions. Erik creates realistic photos of impossible scenes - capturing ideas, not moments: “To me photography is just a way to collect material to realize the ideas in my mind. I get inspired by things around me in my daily life and all kinds of things I see. Although one photo can consist hundreds of layers I always want it to look like it could have been captured. Every new project is a new challenge and my goal is to realize it as realistic as possible.” Erik has been invited to speak at the TED conference in London on how something can look real but at the same time be impossible.

yes??? Nintendo, are you taking notes?

Real life. The concept you’re thinking of is going outside.

Yes let me just go outside and talk to my rhinoceros neighbour, who resides in the town in which I am mayor, and then see what the alpaca merchants have for sale.

I’ll head into town hall afterward and talk to my anthropomorphic dog wife.

a relationship will not cure your issues, no matter how hard young adult books and films try to push that notion on us. if you have depression or bipolar or anxiety or whatever, getting into a relationship isn’t going to cure that or make it go away. person with illness + relationship = ill person in a relationship. please don’t put all of your focus on finding someone to fix you, focus on fixing yourself the right way.
