Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Photography on Saturday 11 January 2014

Paris-based photographer and art director Patrice Letarnec takes the popular expression ‘head over heels’ a little too literally in a series called Head Over Heels. The concept is simple: models handstand with their clothes still in ‘normal position’, meaning the top is still the top and the jeans and shoes are still on the bottom. […]

Impressive light calligraphy by Julien Breton

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Photography on Sunday 23 December 2012

Sure, everyone’s getting into light photography these days. What we like about French photographer-calligrapher Julien Breton’s works is just how many light years away his exquisite light paintings of Arabic calligraphy are from the run-of-the-mill light paintings out there. They’re beautiful.
