Photography is usually used to give an exact image of what you see. With this series, Jan Herdlick wanted to try out a different photographic approach. The images represent ‘the essence of memory’. If you think back to places you have been to, you wont be able to remember every detail. Things change in your […]
For most of us young ones, the National Geographic Society means weeknights spent in front of the TV watching Locked Up Abroad, Mudcats, or Doomsday Preppers. But many of us don’t know that National Geographic spans 125 years of exploration, discovery, and learning. One of their great contributions is their innovations in photographic technology that brought us amazing, breath taking, and historically-relevant images.
Dabbling in the dark art of illustrating the unseen monsters and sprits among us, Dr. Lukas Brezak has taken it upon himself to heal humanity through the power of digital illustration, 3D art, and surreal photography. His macabre works are unnerving and dark, yet strangely beautiful and up-lifting. Weird, huh?!
When Russian photographer Jana Romanova saw her friends getting pregnant one after the other, she decided to document this stage of their lives by shooting portraits of them asleep in the morning with their partners at night, before the beginning of a new day — and soon, a new chapter. She then expanded the project […]
Nick Zinner, guitarist for the New York indie rock band Yeah Yeah Yeahs, has been taking photographs since he was in high school. Unfortunately, he was born with a mild binocular vision disorder, which means that he has no depth perception and sees the world mostly flat – like a photograph.
Modern life is so tough. Guys have it as tough as the ladies when it comes to building a healthy body image, what with the Beckhams and Gandys of the world parading around in their skimpies with these unreal abs, so UK daily The Sun decided to have some fun by getting four readers to strike similar poses in their undies. It’s as real as it gets.
Notorious for drugs and crime, Hong Kong’s Kowloon Walled City was once thought to be the most densely populated place in the world. Over 50,000 people were crammed into 300 interconnected high-rise buildings, which made for intolerably unsanitary conditions and anarchic political turmoil. Photographers Greg Girard and Ian Lambot spend five years living in the […]
For his ‘Bacteria Art’ series, physics professor Eshel Ben-Jacob took bacteria colonies — thriving in his petri dish as raw material — and then introduced environmental challenges, so the micro-organisms could band together to use their collective social intelligence to solve these, as they inadvertently make art. How delightfully composed.
Coca Cola logos are very dominant in the Philippine landscape. I chose to photograph them because they’re very distinctive, and while I know other countries also have Coke ads, I don’t think they’re anywhere as pervasive as the Coke banners, streamers, metal signs, tarps, posters, logo placements beside store names that I see in the […]
Here’s a Tumblr dedicated to portraits of bookshelves and their proud owners. Book Selfies combines the “selfie” trend with a love of literature.

Film photography advocates and enthusiasts will always find a way to prove that film is not dead. Here’s one of those proofs: a documentary about the subculture that is film photography. Made by the folks from Indie Film Lab, Long Live Film investigates the reasons why film photographers across the United States still prefer emulsion over […]
Ed Ruscha is one of my favorite photographers. His Twentysix Gasoline Stations book is probably the first photo book that’s also an art object in itself. This video of Ed and his dog showing his work gives us a glimpse into the mind behind the master.
Months ago, a Russian photographer and his friends risked jail time in order to illegally climb the Great Pyramid of Giza to take photos. In a move to solidify Russia’s claim of having the most daring and ballsy photographers in the world, Russian photographers Vadim Mahora and Raskalov started taking dizzying and death-defying photos on top of Europe’s famous landmarks.
Looking at these pictures of failed urban planning in China — including deserted cities in Inner Mongolia and Tianjin that could not attract residents, a sprawling shopping mall in Guangdong lacking in shop tenants, and an unfinished amusement park outside of Beijing that never opened — we are reminded of just how much unexplored terrain […]
