If you’re anything like me, you have a fascination with clouds. Lucky for us, there’s a cloud appreciation society that shares the same interest. There’s one type of cloud formation in particular, the asperatus cloud, that’s got our collective jaws on the floor. It looks as if it came right out of one of Van [...]
Is an image a photograph if it wasn’t made using a camera? Photographer Alexander Harrington questions just that with his series Untitled I, comprising images that originate not via a camera, but via a computer with Photoshop. His reasoning: “If you ask most people what the difference between a painting and a photograph is, they [...]
These incredible photographs of mirrored cityscapes were taken by photographers from around the world. Each picture shows a different city at different times during the day, with its skyline reflecting into a body of water. It’s a spectacular sight to see the similarities and differences of cities in vastly different locations.

The black and white photography of Andre D. Wagner creates a bold statement while maintaining a simple image. Wagner uses everyday lives and routines to perfectly portray different aspects related to humanity. He uses the language of expression to directly relate to his audience. The power of suggestion is forceful in his work, alongside the [...]
We’ve seen many types of maps, and most of them share one characteristic: they are minimalistic, topographic representations of a particular physical area. Now Sohei Nishino has gone ahead to blow our minds with his spin on maps of cities he has visited. Comprised of his stash of photographs, these recreate the city as one [...]
Graphic designer Jherin Miller fused the disparate aesthetics of old-school Polaroids and pixelated 80s video game graphics for his Pixels and Polaroids project, so what emerged was a new world combining the two. It’s a fun concept. We dig it.
Alexa Meade, who regularly blurs the line between reality and art by painting directly on human bodies, recently collaborated with performance artist Sheila Vand. With Vand painted and submerged in a pool of milk, Meade had to fight against time to capture her shapeshifting form as portraits while the paint on Vand seeped into the [...]
Henry Hargreaves is a fine one indeed. It looks like he’s on a roll destroying all sorts of stuff from deep-frying gadgets to cracking colorful substances from eggs. Now, he’s on to Burning Calories, literally, by dousing junk food with lighter fluid and setting them on fire. Frankly, the sight of ice cream going up [...]
Artist Heidi Lender donned a black wig (with the occasional prop) and posed her way in front of varied black graphic backdrops. Inspired by her own mother, Lender’s photography series gives a firm nod to all the superwomen of the world (our mothers) who manage to do it all, in style as well. In Heidi [...]
It wasn’t that long ago that our brains melted at the sight of Suren Manvelyan’s gorgeous macro human eye shots. Now we’ve discovered that Manvelyan also has a pictorial series of animal eyes in their full unflinching glory. Might be just us and our untrained peepers, but a stingray’s eye looks alarmingly close to a [...]
Italian photographer Rä di Martino took these amazing pictures of abandoned Star Wars film sets in Tunisia. Using Google Earth, she effectively tracked down decades-old locations such as Luke Skywalker’s Tatooine dome home, the Lars Homestead, for a number of photographic projects. As she observed on her website, “Some of it have now become ruins, [...]
Visual artist and educator Kerry Skarbakka, in his photo series The Struggle To Right Oneself, photographs himself — with the help of climbing gear and various equipment — dangling perilously or tumbling down in frightful situations. His work is in response to the human experience of uncertainty and balance; of relinquishing and taking control. As [...]
We wouldn’t have guessed it by looking at these images. Charles Morgan Smith’s photographic series Emissio appear to be nebulae in intergalactic space, while they are really iridescent oil spills on road surfaces, with the pictures formed using conventions of Hubble images. Smith’s intention is for the photos to show the relationship between the everyday [...]
Dutch historian Jo Hedwig Teeuwisse’s photography series entitled Ghosts of War beautifully combines World War II photographs with images of the same location in present-day. She skillfully composes each image, making sure that every detail is matching up, and then she edits the image in Photoshop. Teeuwisse’s photos are a haunting reminder of the past, [...]
How amazing. Brooklyn-based artist Phillip Stearns, whose past work has used largely digital cameras and technology (the Glitch textiles for one), decided to create art with the help of old photographic methods. After he studied the effect of high 15,000 voltages and household cleaning products (think vinegar, baking soda, salt, bleach and hydrogen peroxide) on [...]
