Jaap Scheren has an interesting and varied portfolio. I particularly like the low key IGUANA series and Research Animals which is more subtle than it sounds.

The work of Oliver Meckes and Nicole Ottawa is stunning. Their philosophy for Eye of Science is stated as follows:
"As a two-person team of photographer and biologist, our aim is to combine scientific exactness with aesthetic appearances, and thereby help to bridge the gap between the world of science and the world of art. We are committed to the rigorous standards of scientific investigation, but also to the use of color as a creative and harmonious tool to achieve beauty. By combining science and aesthetics we hope to enthuse our audience. Day after day we explore fascinating forms and structures in a world beyond human vision."

ANDREW BREEN's "Invisible Seas"

I really like Andrew Breen's latest series, Invisible Seas. The statement accompanying the series says:
"In my previous photographic series, Night on Land, I constructed miniature, alien environments. Devoid of any life forms, these images presented the "ideal" aesthetics of early sci-fi cinema. In my new body of work, Invisible Seas, I am fabricating and directing my own nautical creatures in response to what is hidden in the Night on Land pictures.

Using the visual markers of scientific and underwater photography, Invisible Seas challenges perceptual systems through the exploration of the synthetic and biological, real and imaginary. While combining clay and plastic models and cultivated organisms and then photographing them underwater, I address the relationship between how these life forms appear versus what they actually are."

Much like the earlier surreal visitation from Tarako, this advert for Iceland's Reyka vodka is similarly off-kilter and amiable.
