This photographic series Atomic Occasions couldn’t be more summer appropriate. Flowers, wild prints, models in a half-erotica kinda pose – that pretty sums up the season!

In the words of Jessica Tremp:

Atomic Occasions is the voyeur catching someone in a reverie, their thoughts clashing, colliding, blossoming and bursting into consciousness.

Now, if we all had a voyeurist neighbour that watched us eat cake by ourselves, then he’d see a similar scene like the photos above – maybe even raunchier. I love the concept of capturing intimate moments and taking them to a classy-artsy level.

You should definitely pop by Jessica’s site to check out the rest of her work which is full of dreamy, dark, and light haunting images. So many flavours to choose from!

Don’t these photos look like surreal paintings? Love what a little bit of paint and a whole lot of skill can create.

I was totally caught by surprise when I saw these prints are a merge of staged photos of real plexiglass and digital illustrations. Crazy! Basically the shapes, colours, and reflexions from the lights in Verena Michelitsch and Tobias Van Schneider’s studio serve as a base pattern from which they create unique prints.

I love that the materials used in this series were actually bought at the shops in New York’s Chinatown. See, there’s no limit for creativity! You ain’t need expensive shiz to produce amazing work. See the behind the scenes over here AND buy the prints over there.

Patricia Treib creates paintings that remind me of sweet summer sorbets, right? The colours and lightness of the paintings definitely set the mood for a cheerful hot season.

Here in Vancouver the weather has been kinda all over the place, one day it feels like the best summer ever, then the next it’s cold as hell, and on the next one it rains. All these dramatic weather fluctuations come with a pretty prize – the sight of flower petals being carried down the street by little streams of water. In fact, those mushy colourful petals on the sidewalk remind me of beautiful paintings like these.
