Photographer Susanna Majuri builds mythical underwater environments and then photographs female models swimming in, above, and through them. "The water is most remarkable," Susanna says. "It carries bodies. Water is color. The shimmer and the deep green. My challenge is to see the reality in a non-traditional light. When I am shooting pictures, I have a premonition that something strange is about to happen."

Made around the outskirts of Athens, this series of photographs by Petro Koublis explores the land that lies behind the edge of the city, outside the invisible borders of the extended metropolitan area.

There is no beauty that is timeless but the timelessness of nature can reflect a new direction, maybe even a hope."

'Amanda Charchian possesses the type of energy that can light up a room, possibly a small city, and potentially the entire world. She harnesses an optimism and ferociousness that is contagious and exciting, and her work is a product of that. It’s definitive and totally provocative.

Our featured artist today is the always unbelievable Mother Nature! Her Zhangye Danxia Landform is an incredible expanse of mountains and streaks of incredible color that is the result of millions of years of tectonic plate movements, water flow fissures, erosion, and oxidization. Amazing!
