Dancer and photographer Mickael Jou is without a doubt one of a very few individuals able to pull off a series of choreographed photos this precise, thoughtful and beautiful.

Using the world as your digital canvas is no easy feat, but Argentina-based photographer and artist Federico Winer is doing just that. Winer studied at the Argentina School of Photography in the 1990s before pursuing an academic career as professor of philosophy at the University of Buenos Aires.

For the basis of his project, Winer utilizes the unique, colorful, and often mesmerizing geometrical patterns of the Earth he discovers when taking what he calls “long trips” through Google Earth.
