Photographer of the Week – Luca Vaime
By Lia Barrett, December 30, 2016 @ 04:00 AM (EST)

There’s so much to say about Photographer of the Week Luca Vaime’s images that it’s difficult to find a starting place—within each frame, there is just so much going on. But despite the complex compositions, Luca seems to have mastered the very difficult art form of finding order out of chaos. 

At first glance at his images, your initial impression is that of a spectator looking at an impressionist painting. There is a brief moment when your eyes have to adjust to make sense of the mayhem. But once you have given your mind a moment to catch up with what your eyes are seeing, you are able to step back and marvel at the beauty in his compositions, the intricate functioning of an ecosystem, and the exquisite symmetry in nature’s creations.
