{Inspirational Art} ~ Photography by Diane Tuft

Photography by Diane Tuft via the Marlborough Gallery
From Top to Bottom // Abyss of Time ~ Aftermath 3 ~ Fate, Being and Tranquility ~ Blood of the Sandur ~The Ring

My dream home would be filled with photography and art by Diane Tuft, who beautifully captures the allure and the fragility of the natural world. As someone who is greatly inspired by weather and nature, these images hit a soft spot for me. What's interesting about Tuft's work is that is requires a lot of technique and research. She works with specific cameras, films and techniques to capture light at the near-ultraviolet and near-infrared ends of the spectrum (which means it is impossible to visualize the photographs before they're shot!) Tuft must travel to specific locations and deal with certain weather conditions in which ultraviolet light is occurring. The natural colours present in the photographs are absolutely stunning, as are the ways the colours blend together. Tuft's recent "Aftermath Series" will be exhibited at the Marlborough Gallery in New York City until April 21st. These images were taken in Iceland after the dramatic explosion of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in 2010. Her photographs are a true testament that there's beauty even in the bleak. Which image is your favourite? Have a happy Wednesday, gang!
