Every spring locals and foreigners alike make the pilgrimage to Inokashira Park in Tokyo, Japan to hanami or "watch blossoms." These short lived blossoms signify beauty, spring, and renewal, but also the fleeting nature of life. Photographer Danilo Dungo takes this journey every spring and has become one of the most famous cherry blossom photographers, capturing this natural wonder from all angles.
A gathering of inspiration, thought experiments, and injections of where life is art.

In nature creatures use mimicry to mimic the textures, colors, and shape of others be that to camouflage into the surroundings or mirror a toxic relative. Within mimicry there are three parties involved the model, the imitator, and the dupe states photographer Seb Janiak. In his latest project, Mimesis, Seb has become intrigued with this idea, creating his own mimicry incidents through high resolution photographs of insect wings. He scouts old taxidermy and antique shops for insect wings and once a perfect specimen is found he photographs them, later to combine the images digitally in the form of a flower. I love the concept of insect wings becoming a flower with the notion of insects being the ones that pollinate flowers, adding two layers onto mimicry.
As winter approaches and life curls up in hibernation let's celebrate the rejuvenating season ahead of us with the awesome power of the natural world through these images of Mother Nature retaking what was once hers.
