“Ever since I was a kid, as far back as I can remember, I was attracted to the sea”, writes photographer Christian Vizl of Mexico.
“To this day I carry within me that dream; and very gratefully realise it through my photography.”

“Cordal’s Mini Cement Skeletons”.

cement_eclipses_isaac_cordalDSC05971

Artist Isaac Cordal (previously) is well-known for his creation and placement of miniature cement figures in public places around the world as part of an ongoing series called Cement Eclipses.
While the meaning behind each tiny sculpture is intentionally ambiguous, it’s impossible to look at each piece without imagining a story.
The pieces often appear in scenes of mourning or despair, as part of what Cordal says is commentary on humankind’s disregard for nature and as foreshadowing of potential consequences. From his artist statement:
Isaac Cordal is sympathetic toward his little people and you can empathize with their situations, their leisure time, their waiting for buses and even their more tragic moments such as accidental death, suicide or family funerals.
The sculptures can be found in gutters, on top of buildings, on top of bus shelters; in many unusual and unlikely places.
These new skeletal works are part of a 2013 series he created in Chiapas, Mexico, and he also had work this summer at ArtScape 2014 in Sweden. You can see more over on Facebook. (via Supersonic).
