Artwork by Cory Scott

Cory Scott is an artist from Canada, who has now set up shop in Sydney, Australia. I love this rendering of Sydney Opera House. It’s always great to see a familiar object, or structure, from a different perspective, or through the eyes of someone else.

Photo by Jon West

Ever get the feeling you’re being watched? That’s the thought that keeps crossing my mind as I look at the work of East Vancouver video producer, Jon West.

I’ve seen a few photographers working with drones taking some great aerial images, but in these works there’s a certain darkness. The result? Photos that are alluring, captivating, and intriguing.
