Behold, Asgard! Oh wait, it’s actually Chicago! While en route to Chicago O’Hare International Airport amateur photographer Mark Hersch snapped this amazing photo of the city’s skyline silhouette reflected on the waters of Lake Michigan. Taken at the perfect moment, Chicago looks like an upside-down city in the sky, with God’s rays of light shining […]
At first glance, these photos look like the surface of the sun, or lava from an active volcano. But would you believe they’re actually macro images of the condiment that you dip sushi in? Yep, these are close-ups of crystallized and melted soy sauce!
What would rats want to eat before they inevitably get their necks snapped by the crushing weight of a mouse trap? Probably something gourmet, like strawberry cheesecake, spinach and ricotta lasagna, onion soup, nachos, or pizza. At least that’s what Davide Luciano and Claudia Ficca imagine in their photo series, ‘Gourmet Mouse Traps’. In the […]
Sculpture Athletes’ is a photo series featuring men and women with Adonis-like physiques striking their best Greek statue pose, all the while soaked in a glass/porcelain skin type overlay. It pays homage to the classic athlete statues from antiquity, and at the same time, making us mere mortals conscious of our not-so-buff bodies. California-based photographer […]
Middle Earth, the greatest sausage fest in the literary world with just 19% of its named characters being female, just got less sausage-y with this gender-swapped series. Russian photographer, Alexander Turchanin, re-imagines the characters from ‘The Hobbit’ by photographing women cosplayers dressed as male characters.
‘Black Hole’ is a series by Swiss photographer Fabian Oefner, in which science basically does its best Jackson Pollock impression, creating these vibrant and colourful swirls. The process is pretty clever and simple: Oefner slaps on dabs of paint on the tip of a rod that’s connected to a drill. He then activates the drill, letting centrifugal force fling the paint outward while a camera captures it all.

2013 may already be, uhhm, so last year, but these photos aren’t. We can’t help but look back and reminisce at all the splendid photos taken in 2013! Here’s just a tiny sample of the stunning images that have graced Lost At E Minor in the year that’s passed.
Did you know that our faces are not symmetrical? Meaning when you split a face directly in the middle (though not in a horror movie kind of way), and you fold it, the features will not line up perfectly. Unless, of course, you’re Denzel Washington. That’s why people often want their ‘good side’ taken whenever they go in front of a camera.

Photographer Chris Fitzgerald has created a series of striking portraits of discarded mattresses on the streets of Los Angeles. I asked him about his inspiration behind the series: ‘I began photographing mattresses after seeing an abundance of old, used mattresses lining the curbs. On our dog-walking route alone I must have seen eight over a […]
We’ve all bought things on Amazon, but how many of us know exactly goes on inside these ‘fulfillment centers’ otherwise known as Amazon’s warehouses? These photos show us what it looks like inside this particular warehouse in Arizona, so we can understand the mystery just a little bit better.
>Back in 2008, photographer Jenn Ackerman went inside the disturbing Kentucky State Reformatory to show us what life is like inside for the mentally ill inmates, the doctors, the correctional officers, and other staff. We got hold of her recently and asked her about what was a most confronting experience. [Read the original post about this series here]
