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.

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 […]

By Low Lai Chow in New Photography on Friday 9 May 2014

CJ Kale waited five long years for the right conditions to present so he could shoot lava in Kalapana on the Big Island of Hawaii. When he finally got lucky, he entered the waters from the ocean surf with his camera, and what happened next was legendary. The pictures are amazing, needless to say.

This is brilliant: 14 years ago, Colorado-based art director Suzanne Heintz decided she had enough of her mum asking when she was going to settle down and get married, so she went ahead to buy herself a mannequin husband and daughter.

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in New Photography on Wednesday 9 April 2014

Inherently, living in a city means distraction, noise, crowded streets and homes piled on top of each other. For the urban-dweller, it’s almost a reassurance to hear the sound of strangers living out their lives just the other side of your bedroom wall. Quiet, solitariness and isolation are not aspects one expects to find in […]

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in New Photography on Saturday 15 March 2014

Earlier this year, London-based fashion photographer Kate Friend took some time out from couture to try something completely different.
