daniel stoupin, a doctoral candidate in marine biology at the university of queensland, has photographed a variety of coral species using full spectrum light to reveal fluorescent pigments that would otherwise be invisible to the naked eye. each piece (click pic for name) is from the great barrier reef. given the complexity of the techniques used, which involve time-lapse and stereoscopic and focus stacked photography, the images take up to ten hours to produce in the lab.
An escaped acrobat from a oppressive Russian circus, Opens fled while touring Australia and has remained with hidden identity ever since. With a love for all that is down right dirty, Opens derives his inspiration from his every day urban surroundings and strives to bring to light this environment with the colours and textures of his creative perception. With a traditional graffiti background and the basic desire to relate his art back to street culture, opens explores both wall and canvases on an individual basis, letting their structure and texture influence the colours and marks made.
