Montreal-based photographer Benoit Paillé has been working on a fascinating series of landscapes using a bizarre lighting method involving a suspended glowing square. The images above are not photoshopped, the 1×1 meter light is instead hung in the center of each photograph and the resulting image shows the unique form of illumination that creeps into the surrounding area. Paillé says his goal is to redefine what a landscape photograph is by questioning its reality, creating a kind of poetic moment in space and time. You can see many more of his Alternative Landscapes on Flickr.

Artist Sofie Bird Møller (b. 1974) lives and works in Berlin.
(from the series ‘Las Rudas’, acrylic paint on page from catalogue, 2011)
The young Danish artist Sofie Bird Møller is known for her work with fashion advertisements. The advertisements are torn out from well-known fashion magazines and with precision but also decided violence Sofie Bird Møller has painted over the models in the advertisements so they appear as abstract forms and so the painted shapes partly obscure what lies underneath. Anthropomorphic figures are suggested by thick, lush brushstrokes that have been laid over models striking elegant poses. The texture and viscosity of the paint are suggestive of naked flesh, even muscle tissue, meat.
