For his series of experimental photography titled Impermanent Sculptures, photographer Vitor Schietti worked with fireworks and long-exposure photography to illuminate the branches and stems of trees in his native Brazil.
Matthias Jung (previously) creates worlds of surreal architecture that inhabit vast photographed landscapes. The works merge together different elements of photography to create unusual compositions, structures you might vividly remember from a dream.

Lithuanian artist Agne Gintalaite has always been attracted to the “garage towns” of her native Lithuania – large areas filled with storage units for cars that were terribly inconvenient and often bus rides away from the owners’ homes.
