Selfies, in general, aren’t worth talking about, but when you have hundred-year old priceless works of art taking them, we just had to make an exception. Visiting the Crawford Art Gallery in Cork, Ireland, redditor ‘Jazus_ur_looking_well’ decided to let the exhibits take all the pictures.

Namely this phenomena were the unabashed siestas of a well-groomed dog and his feathery friend.

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Photography on Saturday 9 August 2014

Well, I guess you could call this titillating. Photographer Lucy Hilmer has kept up a tradition for 40 years of taking a self-portrait on her birthday wearing nothing other than her ‘white Lollipop underpants, shoes and socks’. Not quite a birthday suit, but close enough. Her first Birthday Suit self-portrait was taken in Death Valley, California, in 1974.

Spam emails inspires photographer to produce a portfolio of detailed shots

Kenny Ong Contributor

By Kenny Ong in New Photography on Thursday 7 August 2014

Photographer Christina De Middel is an odd ball when it comes to spam emails that try to cheat you of your hard earned pennies. Instead of hurling an expletive or two at them, which is what I usually do, she devours their contents and then creates fictitious portraits of the imaginary senders in their perceived […]

The most famous monkey selfie of all time is now the subject of a legal battle with Wikipedia

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Photography on Thursday 7 August 2014

From the ‘you can’t script it’ category comes this somewhat bizarre story about a pending legal entanglement between a clever monkey, a photographer, and Wikipedia. It all started back in 2011 when nature photographer David Slater had his equipment, erm, borrowed by a rather forthright primate who proceeded to take hundreds of selfies, including the ubiqitious one above which has since been adopted by Wikipedia in its Wikimedia Commons collection.

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Photography on Wednesday 6 August 2014

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Photography on Tuesday 5 August 2014

Count It Joy Photography may well be ‘a portrait studio and on-location photographer based in Huntsville, AL’. But as of today, it’s also the creator of a viral shoot going nuts on the web. Ladies and gentlemen, we present Snuggles’ Doggie Newborn Pictures, a photo shoot that happened when, having wrapped a baby shoot for another couple, one of them remarked how nice it would be to do their own baby shoot.
