The aorta is the largest artery in the human body, giving oxygen to the rest of your body through your circulatory system. Aorta is also the name of photography duo Marco Grizej and Kristian Kraen, who both live in Gothenburg, Sweden. They’re work is extremely moody and dark, often using an extremely minimal color palette, making for some really dynamic photos.
Of course, I picked the two goofiest photos they have on their site, shots from inside a model town. But I love the trees in the top photo a lot, I think they look really scary. Be sure to check out the rest of their portfolio, especially the creepy looking kids.
