Masha Sardari is still a teenager, and yet her work on flickr is truly impressive. Her self-portraits are by far her best work. The magic of her ethereal, Pre-Raphaelite/Symbolist images seems to only exist with her within them. It’s the tension between her thin, angular, waifish body—lovely, awkward,and fragile—and the macabre and beautiful natural environment that will make you want to spend the next 2 hours going through all of her photostream. Also, much of her shoots are in Northeast Florida, my home since birth, and I am more than a little in love with that fact. The details of her environment are at once familiar and mysterious. Like a good fairy tale. I’d love to see what she’ll be doing a decade from now.

Amazing street photographer Vivian Maier was only discovered recently and only after she died. She left over 100,000 photos of New York and Chicago in the 50s and 60s, mostly undeveloped. Read the amazing story here, a blog by the man who accidentally discovered her.

Spooky, wonderful work by German photographer Michael Wesely, using impossibly long exposure—like 34 months for the top one of NYC.  Stefan Klenke has a nice article about it here
