We love this incredible series of images show the amazing attention to detail and strive for perfection by dancers amidst their passionate performances. Photography at its best, these stills let us savor a powerful moment of each motion which would otherwise go by very, very quickly. With the addition of flour thrown in the air, Yakovlev gives another dimension to his images and shows the space his dancers fill with their graceful movements.

Artist Sean Yoro aka Hula uses his paddle boat to get to and float on while creating his unique portraits. Placed on hard-to-reach, semi-submerged and derelict walls, the paintings appear to be floating murals of women bathing in the blue waters. With their hyperrealistic qualities, the images can be seen and recognized from a great distance and their perfect reflections in the still waters they make a unique sight in its setting.
Originally from Hawaii, Sean Yoro aka Hula is … Read the rest
