Curves and Contrasts

Mark Laita has done some of the most spectacular photography for ad campaigns, and his personal portfolio applies the same kind of bold, graphic approach to create striking glimpses of nature, animals, and human bodies. He effortlessly finds visual vignettes in the curves of butterfly wings, wisps of leaves, and reptilian tails. Dramatic lighting and saturated color give the photographs a painterly quality, making them even more convincing in a keenly aesthetic sense.
