Modern Ruins
Modern ruins is a neologism referring to ruins of architecture constructed in the recent past, generally in the most recent century, or since the 19th century.

The term is most frequently used by people performing urban exploration of man-made architecture that is abandoned or no longer accessible to the general public, such as structures abandoned through the process of urban decay. Enough documentation on these sites may have been lost over time that this unscientific exploration resembles archaeology of ancient ruins in the methods used to collect information.

 

Cinematics
Post-apocalyptic visions, eerie atmospheres, dreamlike sceneries, chimeric territories... Images of imagination and reveries... Pictures driven by the inspiration of cinema, music, novels or paintings.

 

Compositings
Compositing is the combining of visual elements from separate sources into single images, often to create the illusion that all those elements are parts of the same scene. Live-action shooting for compositing is variously called "chroma key", "blue screen", "green screen" and other names. Today, most, though not all, compositing is achieved through digital image manipulation. Pre-digital compositing techniques, however, go back as far as the trick films of Georges Méliès in the late 19th century, and some are still in use.

 

Landscapes
Nature, seascape, visions from the nordic Iceland or the Mediterranean coast. Long exposure photographies, wide open spaces and dramatic skies...
