Delaney Allen’s a master of bewildering close-ups and bewitching landscapes

Texan photographer Delaney Allen has one of the most bewitching photographic portfolios we’ve ever laid eyes on. Thick with rich landscapes and shots of turbulent seas, interspersed with abstract close-ups that give little clue to their construction, Delaney manages to transform everything he scrutinises into strangely familiar but equally distant scenes. See that shimmering cosmos above? That’s just glitter on cloth. And that frothy cream mid-spill? That’s a section of rough coastline. We like nothing more than to be deceived by immaculate images and Delaney has turned that trick into a fine art.
