Photographer Tom Hussey had a conversation with an 80-year-old World War II veteran. The man commented to him that he couldn’t believe how quickly time had passed. He didn’t feel it was possible that he could be 80 years of age. That’s when Hussey had a lightbulb moment.
In this ambitious and heart-wrenching project, Shawn Van Daele takes drawings done by children born or living with serious health conditions, and brings them to life as real photographs – starring the children themselves, showing them that Anything Is Possible. Indeed.
Here’s your chance to play George R.R. Martin and be the almighty hand that decides who lives and dies in Game of Thrones. ‘Dragon Sword Fighter Force’ is a Game of Thrones-inspired collection of LEGO mini figures that include our favourite characters from the series.
‘Tokyo Compression’ is a series by photographer Michael Wolf, in which he documents the daily grind of commuters in the packed subways of the busy metropolis. The series, which has already been published into three books, show the stressed out and tired faces of commuters through the subway windows during peak hours of the rush hour.
While this scene may look like 1,600 pandas storming the streets of Taiwan in a plot to subdue its citizens with their overflowing fluffiness, it actually has a sad story behind it. Called the ‘Pandas World Tour’, the paper-mache pandas were conceived by the WWF in 2008 and created by French artist Paulo Grangeon in an attempt to raise awareness about the endangered status of this adorable species.
Humpty Dumpty just got a badass weapons upgrade via the ‘Arthur Egg Cup’, an egg cup holder in the shape of a knight’s suit of armour. Turn your soft boiled eggs into a knight in shining armour by padding it with this plastic suit and removable helmet. The kitchen accessory even comes with a spoon that acts as the egg’s lance, ready to fend off any hungry mouth that comes its way.
Would you believe none of this involved CGI? The 8 million petals that rained down on a small town in Costa Rica is as real as it gets. This weird phenomena is part of Sony’s new 4k TV marketing campaign, in which they partnered up with ad agency McCann and photographer Nick Meek, to make the fantastical scene come to life.
One of the profoundest things in life: sunsets. One thing that’s more profound than sunsets: looking at a sunset through the reflection of a broken mirror. Very deep stuff. New York-based photographer Bing Wright has captured the beauty of the setting sun as it reflects off of shattered mirrors in a series called ‘Broken Mirror/Evening Sky’.
Johannes Stoetter, the artist behind the amazing illusion of the woman bodypainted to look like a parrot, has clearly had a lot of practice. We lucked out on another great bodypainted series by him, Anatomy, where he painstakingly painted the human anatomy (exposed muscles, veins, internal organs and all) onto real human bodies. How absolutely […]
Perhaps we’ve been pampered with admiring the mad skills of too many good cosplayers out there. At the other end of the spectrum of cosplay greatness is a particular Thai cosplayer, Anucha Saengchart, whose brand of Lowcost Cosplay is defyingly, howlingly bad. We think we have seen everything now.
In her ‘emoji nation’ series, Kiev-based artist Nastya Nudnik takes the event notifications from Facebook, Twitter and the lot that we are so familiar with on social media, and updates classical art paintings with these. That one tweak instantly transforms the timeless to something quite mundane.
Street art is shaping the way we see and live in urban spaces everywhere in the world. In Rome, we’ve got the Space Invader leaving small pixelated masterpieces around Trastevere and other old neighborhoods; and in Melbourne and other Australian cities, there’s Rone.
In times when half of the magic in photography is achieved with Photoshop, Katerina Plotnikova captures real, breathtaking scenes of girls interacting with, and embracing, wild sometimes dangerous animals. Plotnikova’s photographs bring to life a mythical world inhibited by stunning princesses whose best friends are bears, owls and even camels.
Nowegian Anders Helstrup has captured one of the most astonishing moments in skydiving history – clear footage of a thumping meteor whooshing past him at 300km/hr, all on video. Helstrup jumped from a small plane that had taken off from from Østre Æra Airport in Hedmark. [This post first ran on our tech and gadget website, Techly]
This list is marvelous. If you have ever wondered what a Head of IT does (Director of Turning Things Off and Back On), or what a Receptionist does (Executive In Charge Of Signing For That), well, now you know. Of course, nothing beats being a Social Media Strategist — he’s rightfully the Person With the […]
Her artistic name is the onomatopoeic word for the sound of action: KASHINK. And action you’ll get, mostly through huge paintings of four-eyed characters in gaudy colours that you can find all around the world. The work of this French artist is inspired by her Spanish and Slovakian origins, and often features portraits of Frida Kahlo mashed up with comics, which she loves.
A Dark Lord has been unleashed in the battle to make you delicious breakfast. Cook your toast inside Darth Vader’s head, and rest assured it will come to the dark side, in a matter of minutes. It even burns the Star Wars logo and the image of the Sith Lord on it!
Here’s another item to add on the bucket list of photographers. Six miles east of Seoul, South Korea, there’s a coffee shop designed to look like a giant Rolleiflex Camera. Also inside the iconic structure, called the ‘Dreaming Camera Café’, is a mini museum that houses both classic and modern cameras.
Know what’s cuter than dolphins? Baby dolphins. After seeing this picture of a baby dolphin floating around on Twitter, we found out the back story to it: apparently, the little ten-day-old calf was found beached near Montevido City, Uruguay, a couple of years ago with its umbilical cord still attached.
Some things in the world simply defy explanation. We just have to accept that cats will always be cats and do cat things in their cat ways. Such as setting up cat camp in every space they take a fancy to and forcing said space to submit to the Rule of Cat instantly.
This heart-warming video is part of the Canon Shine movement, where Canon are aiming to bring back the power of the photograph - encouraging people to submit a photograph and use their lens to change the world.
In this clip, Australian cricket legend and founder of the Waugh Foundation, Steve Waugh, chooses Daniel as his subject - a 19 year old man who has spinal muscular atrophy. His robotic arms allows him to do simple things like pet his dog and comb his hair.
