In this dark, beautiful series by Pauline Darley, a model poses with the most stunning skeletal make-up I’ve ever seen. (I’m taking note for next year’s Halloween.) The series is called She Waited Too Long and evokes a narrative about the undead beauty. What did she wait too long for? Was she waiting for a lover and […]
Ezra Stoller (May 1915–October 2004) is the man who brought the spirit of modern architecture to the world through photography. His stunning photos feature American icons such as Frank Loyd Wright’s Fallingwater masterpiece and Alvar Aalto’s Finnish Pavilion at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Find more of his work in his retrospective book or go see it in real life […]
Recently released by the US Navy, these photos document an FA-18 Hornet as it shatters the sound barrier. The event took place on July 7, 1999 off the coast of Pusan, South Korea. Apparently the cloud around the craft is due to Prandtl-Glauert singularity.
These photos by Martin Klimas are absolutely mesmerizing. Designed to visually embody the sound of music, Klimas’s splatter paint ‘sculptures’ are just as fleeting and energetic as the audio media they resemble. The paint is thrown into the air using the natural force of a speaker as the volume is turned up. Tunes from the […]
The photos coming out of the 100Cameras project are incredible on so many levels. Taken by children living in marginalized communities, the photos are sold in order to raise funds that go straight back to the child’s community. The photos feature honest portraits of everyday life in Sudan, Cuba, and the US. Not only is […]
This Texan photographer decided to take the most bland of landscapes and shake ’em up a bit. Irby Pace took a bunch of helium balloons, a little string, and some smoke canisters to the most monotonous fields, back alleys, and ponds to add a little colour before photographing them. Pop! is surrealism mixed with modern photography. […]
I had no idea body surfing could be so intense! But thanks to Chris Burkard, we can peek into the world of serious “torpedo people”. These photos are a visual treat full of laughing waves and vibrant underwater landscapes from Tahiti. Find more of these incredible shots here and be sure to check out the documentary he helped film as well.
There’s no shortage of photos of objects laid out in neat columns online, but I feel Jim Golden’s work still deserves a special mention. I love the one with all the cassette tapes the best. According to PDN, only one of the photos was commissioned, everything else was a labor of love. Neatness-obsessed pack rats of the world, this post is for you.
Endia Beal took a few middle aged strangers on a strange trip to the hair salon down the street for a make-over. The women agreed to undergo the transformation and pose for a photo in a typical corporate setting whether they liked their new ‘do or not. Most of these 40 plus year-old women seem […]
Pleasure Piers are crumbling reminders of ancient tourism in Britain. Before average folk could take long holidays to scenic resorts, small businesses would band together to create these tiny resorts on a pier. Anyone could walk the area and take a mini vacation. Thanks to the efforts of Simon Croberts, all 58 surviving pleasure piers […]
Here’s a twist on the classic 40s pin-up girl: London-based photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz combines America’s favorite drink with images of America’s favorite vintage sex icons. By combining and layering hundreds of photos of real milk splashed across the models’ bodies, Wieczorkiewicz literally dresses the girls in milk. That’s right. These are real photos of milk and half-naked women, no […]
This site collects photos of cute men from the early days of photography developed using the daguerreotype process. The first photo is of the sculpture Auguste Rodin. Who knew he was such a looker!
Sebastian Schramm knows that people are weird. So instead of hiding his subjects’ true nature, he picks very specific objects to enhance and showcase the weirdness. His portrait series is bizarre yet elegant and thoughtful. Though you might expect each piece to be loudly odd, like some sort of old-fashioned freak show, somehow Schramm creates a […]
This is the sort of amateur graffiti you find on bathroom stalls. Updated every Friday with new content, Pictures of Walls is a curated collection of everyday scribbles and scrawling found around bathrooms, interstates, construction sights, urban alleys, and the like. They’re mostly improvisation pieces, a real stream of consciousness for society in general.
