By Milo Sumner in New Photography on Monday 30 June 2014

How many people have shared your bed in the last 789 days? Even if you can remember all of them or there aren’t many to remember, chances are you didn’t document the whole lot of them tumbling, sleeping, smoking and rolling all over your bed.

Photo series shows the reactions of New York subway riders when strangers fall asleep on them

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in New Photography on Saturday 28 June 2014

I’m from London, a city famous for holding millions of people that go to incredible lengths not to talk to each other.

By J. Cooper in New Photography on Thursday 26 June 2014

I had to look closely a few times before I could make out that these are actually toys photographed and not real space ships. If you’ve ever had a fantasy about flying your own Y-Wing fighter instead of taking the subway in winter, well, look no further.

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Photography on Thursday 26 June 2014

Thanks to photographer Ralph Crane, who took these evocative black-and-white snapshots of a 1957 flying saucer convention in the Californian desert that had an unusual attraction in the form of a secret home that hid out of sight under a giant rock (just look at it!), we declare ourselves incapable of going to any normal […]

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in New Photography on Wednesday 25 June 2014

Prostitution … we assume that much of the job description is easy to imagine but, unsurprisingly if you think about it, the majority of a road side prostitute’s working day is taken up with waiting patiently for the next customer.

By Low Lai Chow in New Photography on Monday 16 June 2014

Recreating childhood photos are nothing new, but this whole ‘conscious awkwardness’ thing has been catching on in recent years. Which makes the earnestness of Irina Werning’s Back to the Future series, that has her helping to recreate childhood snaps of people, even more amazing.

Kenny Ong Contributor

By Kenny Ong in New Photography on Friday 13 June 2014

There is a magical looking forest called Hallerbos located in the south of Brussels, Belgium.
