Amazing Photography of Arno Rafael Minkkinen

I can't get enough of amazingly awesome work of Finnish photographer  Arno Rafael Minkkinen. His work explores an uncanny juxtaposition between the human body and landscapes, where body parts function as integral parts of trees, rivers, skylines, and rock formations. Many of his photos require extreme physical risk, dangling his body from cliffs, holding his breath underwater, or at times facing his greatest psychological fears. Check out his new website here.

Brushless Paintings by Amy Shackleton
