Photographer Rose-Lynn Fisher has a fantastic project out called Topography of Tears, where she uses microscopes to give us ‘an unexpected view of another familiar subject: dried human tears’. She started the project around five years ago, ‘during a period of copious tears’ and realized that ‘everything we see in our lives is just the tip of the iceberg, visually’, which is where this fascinating collection of photos comes from.
Fashion photographer Per Zennstrom uses a glitch generator to digitally distort and “destroy” his images in an experimental and colorful beauty project with hair designed by Carina Finnström and make-up by Fredrik Stambro. When the photographer came across a Glitch Generator, created by Georg Fisher, he immediately knew that he had to try it out on […]
Beneath the ground exists a world that no one would dare wonder into. It’s a place of darkness, abandon, and isolation. San Francisco’s Bold Italic visited the underground caverns of their city and here are the photos. Some are viaducts and others are service tunnels. It also serves as a reminder that dim places like […]
Jack Skellington’s Zoo, I mean, Evolution, is a series by photographer Patrick Gries that features 300 black and white photos of vertebrate skeletons.

The next time you complain about how cramped your apartment is, have a thought for high-rise dwellers in Hong Kong.

Architect Jose Davila’s new book There But Not reduces 100 iconic landmarks to their negative space.

Fresh out from being stranded in Vietnam for a week, I can attest that Hans Kemp’s somewhat nightmarish documentation of motorbikes loaded with all sorts of crazy loads of stuff from duck carcasses to bottled water taking a pillion ride, is a real phenomenon here. In fact, he has an entire book, Bikes of Burden, […]
Before reading this, a warning: Lots of feeling ahead. Prepare tissue. Joy Sessions are both heart-warming and heart-breaking portraits of terminally ill or elderly pets with their owners (read: family). Usually, these pets pass away soon after the photos are taken. Minneapolis-based pet photographer Sarah Beth recalls the inspiration behind Joy Sessions.
Heartbreaking yet heartfelt, these pictures from Brandon Tauszik are part of his series called White Wax. The Oakland photographer says the aim of this collection if to ‘serve as a medium for self-examination’ as America undergoes a ‘collective re-examination of its criminal justice policy, gun culture and post-racial credo’. Each photo captures the place where […]
I love this photo series of Viennese Wurstel Diners by Stefan Fuertbauer. These diners have been operating in Vienna since the 1870s, and in a response to the invention of commercial fast food, now have this nostalgic 60’s Americana-type appearance.

Steve Kraitt’s Designer Drugs photo series shows us just how obsessed we can become over brand names and high-end luxury goods. Or not. Kraitt doesn’t really give us much insight into why his latest photo shoot was created. The photos see model Echo Nittolitto swallowing designer drugs from all the major houses, including Prada, Gucci, […]
London-based Italian artist Emanuela Franchini’s Food on Face series is a delicious mix of portraiture and dinner. According to Franchini, the photographs are a comment on mindless eating – although apparently none of the food went to waste in the making of these photos. Steak, anyone?
School of Visual Arts graduate Olivia Locher has literally just stepped out from behind the books into the real world and already made a name for herself with her masterful use of playful sensibilities. In her ongoing photographic series, I Fought The Law, Locher turns the unusual, still-existing laws in the United States into quirky […]

The series is a result of […]
