Visarute Angkatavanich fish photography

Someone once gifted me a betta fish for my 8th birthday, and although my memory of the event is a bit hazy, I can only imagine that my reaction was THANK YOU BUT I REALLY WISH THIS WAS A PUPPY. Fish swimming around in their closed off aquariums have never been particularly interesting to me, but these incredible photos by Visarute Angkatavanich really smashed that barrier into smithereens! The amount of detail captured in each crystal clear shot is just mesmerizing – these teeny fish look so regal with their elegant fins flowing out like designer gowns! There are a lot more shots in the series, so be sure to check out all the fishy beauties here!

floating recipes by pavel becker

I imagine cooking a gourmet meal in outer space would look a little something like this incredible photo series by photographer Pavel Becker and art director Nora Luther – fresh ingredients suspended in a stunning mid-air ballet, stubbornly refusing to land in that pot! “Recipe Photography Concept” puts a twist on traditional cookbook photography by focusing on the individual elements and the delicious anticipation of cooking a meal, rather than the picture perfect end result…which works for me because my cooking rarely comes out à la a Stepford wife :-) Unfortunately there’s no real cookbook out, but you can check out more photos from this tasty series here!

If this whimsical photo series by husband-and-wife duo Pierre Javelle and Akiko Ida doesn’t put a big ol’ smile on your face this Monday morning, then you should consider just heading back to bed! MINIMIAM reimagines everyday foods as surreal landscapes for teeny tiny figurines to explore and frolick within – golfers tee off with colorful sprinkles, and mountain climbers carefully navigate through the treacherous snowy peaks of merengues. Every shot is so cleverly composed, and a few have made me laugh out loud! Isn’t it amazing how a slightly different viewpoint can turn the mundane into something magical? Click here to check out some more photos from this delectable series!
