Self-taught photographer Nigel Agar turned recently to photography. “I’ve learnt it through books and videos in 2016”. Inspired by contemporary and more ancient artists, photographers and painters, he works with light and focuses on its distortions on landscapes and reality.

@diztantdreamer

We do not know much about Morgan Whitney, the artist behind the pseudonym @diztantdreamer. Based in Florida, she creates unique compositions from the landscapes of the American State. Images which, in their colours and treatments, are reminiscent of those from the end of the 20th century.
