This year the Corso Zundert parade in Zundert, Netherlands was inspired by Van Gogh paintings. The floats read as giant 3D interpretations of his artwork and the pieces borrow specific imagery as well as riffing on Van Gogh’s style. This year in Zundert—where Van Gogh was born 162 years ago—19 teams of people created floats for the celebration. The moving sculptures are elaborate mosaics, made entirely of different colors of dahlias.

Our organs are essential elements to our bodies. They sustain us until the inevitable. This photography series titled Eye Heart Spleen by Camila Carlow is a beautiful reminder of the machinery that lies beneath our skin.

Well, maybe we should preface this post that these are not just any photos of flowers, but perhaps some of the most vibrant, focused photos of flowers you are going to see. Sasha Kurmaz' work takes on a new meaning upon a second glance; they look like still-life paintings, pieces of art in their own right.
