The 'Burnt by the Sun' Series is Both Softly Surreal and Quietly Quirky

The Burnt by the Sun photo series accurately captures that heat haze that often appears in cities on those extremely hot summer days. Yet there is also a dreamy quality to this photography portfolio that almost makes each image look like a painting rather than an actual photo. Of course, we can thank the power of Photoshop for that effect.

Shot by Sonia and Mark Whitesnow of Whitesnow Studio, the Burnt by the Sun photo series is also a prime example of their photography style. Quiet, surreal and definitely quirky, each image's oddities makes the entire series completely captivating. Unlike any other style out there, there is a softness and smoothness to both the backdrop and the subject that make them appear as though they are made out of porcelain.
