Art Love: Kevin Cooley

Happy Tuesday! I stumbled across these gorgeous photos by Kevin Cooley. He is a fine arts photographer that lives and works in New York City and this series called "Controlled Burns." I think the smoke looks so velvety and beautiful- almost like a controlled chaos.  I think I could stare at these all day because it's almost like you can see different things almost like watching big fluffy clouds on a summers day.  I just adore the grouping of them all together with their big plumes of smoke.

That smoke is mesmerizing! At first I wasn't sure if I was looking at fabric, it has such a lush quality.

Gosh, those folds and shadows and texture in the smoke - it took me awhile trying to figure out if it was real smoke or fabric. I love this so much - seriously, I could stare at them all day, too - it put me in a trance!! :)

Thanks for sharing, I would have never thought that smoke could be so beautiful. Now I hope it's not encouraging arsonists out there!

These are stunning. Mesmerizing, really. I'm enjoying looking at them in juxtaposition with Christine's post asking what's your favorite kind of photography. I love looking at photos that I would never ever take. And yet, while the specifics of what he's studying here aren't in my scope of interest, the still-life-ness of it definitely is. Love.
