Cata’s choice of art is determined by visuals that bear personal significance to him: a lover not yet roused from sleep, a piano, a lighthouse, a snowy mountain, and the ocean. All in his hands. The unconventional series works as a type of journal for Cata, who explains that the landscapes are a part of him. They will…

    Breathtaking glaciers illuminated by drones at night

    Photographer Reuben Wu fuses landscape photography with fine art sensibilities to capture earthly scenes using powerful LED lights on a drone. He selectively illuminated Pastoruri, one of the few glaciers left in the tropical parts of South America, and using the night to showcase the blue glacial ice surrounded by sinuous black rock, all against a backdrop of the clear night sky.
