I’ve discovered (not a big discovery though) that so often photographs when turning into something called “desktop wallpapers” lose all connections with their authors. Of course, such great sources of beautiful and artistic desktop wallpapers as InterfaceLIFT, for instance, fully respect photographers and their rights. But there are some exceptions.
Recently, I’ve found nice and poetic images of unknown photographer. I saw his pictures on different sites (for example, link1, link2, link3, link4 – sometimes with inappropriate comments of the visitors), but couldn’t find any information about the photographer and about the source from which the images were taken. Fortunately, some EXIF information with the line “Artist: Funstyle Chu” survived in one of the photos and after some googling I ended at Funstyle’s photostream on Flickr.
Funstyle is from Taipei, Taiwan. The images below are from his White Waltz & black fruit obsession – a set on Flickr (translated automatically by Google Translator 🙂 – I don’t speak Chinese). The model’s name is Mikako (if I understand correctly).
The photostream (445 visitors daily on average) contains dozens of well-made photographs.
