If you have not heard the name of Rebekka Guðleifsdóttir, or at least read the name given the spelling, you will. She is perhaps the top photographer on flickr, the new media photo sharing site. Rebekka has accomplished this while living in Iceland and being a student.

_rebekka as she is known on flickr composes beautiful and impassioned shots using nothing more than a great camera and an even more amazing imagination. Talk about doing more with less, one of her most popular shots is of an apple tossed in the air in front of her. Sounds ho hum, until you see the photo. I love seeing ingenuity.

And of course don’t miss her multiplicity set. Creative talent at its best.

Your challenge, if you are in public relations, is to help out these rising stars in the hope they will remember you later. If they don’t, but you have helped grow more talent for the planet, is that such a bad thing?
