Who’d have thought that back in 1975, two dudes working on a computer in a garage would someday change the world and build a brand that’s become a quasi-religion? Before the billions of dollars, the world-changing innovations, and the mass following, Apple was only a small start-up back in 1977 with a handful employees and […]
Lomo photographer, Gavin Hammond, best known for his London In Puddles series, which showed beautiful reflections of the capital in murky rain water, has often been asked to make his work available on the iPad and tablet. His reaction: a series of iPad-inspired Lomo photos entitled, London – There Is An App For That – […]
These incredible psychedelic images are synapse maps of the human brain at work. The Human Connectome Project has been exploring the brain’s conenctions using a high-resolution map since 2010, and the project seeks to examine the brains of 1,200 volunteers to create a database of healthy brain structure. These images show the Human Connectome Project’s […]
Be endeared. Be fascinated. Be disturbed. Yeah, mostly be disturbed. ‘Talking Heads: The Vent Haven Portraits’ is a 224-page book by photographer Matthew Rolston, in which he features a rarely seen collection of ventriloquist dummies over at the Vent haven Museum in Kentucky. Rolston was reading the ‘New York Times’ one day and happened to see a story by Edward Rothstein about the dummies of the Vent Haven Museum.
C.A.R.L. is a series by London-based photographer David Ryle about a sad and lonely robot traveling all by his lonesome throughout England. The beautiful, silver mech was created by artist Gemma Fletcher and Studio Boo. The series of photos show C.A.R.L. wandering streets and fields, doing human stuff like: reflecting deeply, getting lost in thought, […]
The Gathering of the Juggalos is a photography book by Daniel Cronin, in which he documents the subculture of Juggalos in a neutral and humanizing light. You see, Juggalos have been rather misrepresented in the media.
We all knew Batman was a lonely guy (who sits inside a dark cave all day waiting for crime anyway?) but we never expected he’s the type to go on solo road trips through Texas and taking dramatic photos. French photographer Remi Noel brought his Batman action figure along on his trip through San Antonio and Texas, snapping photos of the famous caped crusader every opportunity he got.
This is my photo project, The Bonnie Days. I started this adventure when my daughter was five weeks old as a birthday gift to my husband. Some of the props I made myself, some I already had at home. I never added or subtracted things in Photoshop, everything was taken naturally. The process is quite simple: I set […]
Oh, daddies. A bunch of dads volunteered to recreate their wives’ most memorable pregnancy moments in this hilarious photo series by Katie Hall that has them playing pregnant instead. The photos were used for a calendar, with a tenth of profits going towards the Greater Racine Collaborative for Healthy Birth Outcomes (GRC4HBO), which works to […]
Given a choice between laughing and wincing at these embarrassing childhood photos, we’d obviously go for the former. But only because of two things: 1. we aren’t one of the kiddos pictured and 2. no one was cruel enough to take a picture in our time to scar us for life. Double score.
Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s book, Earth from Space, contains 150 images of, well, our home planet’s terrains, as seen from space. Some, like the zappy one of the Gulf of Bengal’s Sundurbans mangroves, look positively trippy.
Every year we look forward to seeing the photos of the most beloved street art photos discovered by Street Art Utopia. Here is a selection of street art photos from around the world, each with different social messages and graphic styles.
Jonathan Icher’s photography series shows people painted as flags eating their nation’s most popular food. Check out Japan snackin’ on some sushi, Britain eating a fried egg, France elegantly devouring a croissant, Italy slurping up some spaghetti, and, of course, the United States chowing down on a cheeseburger. This series is both humorous and intriguingly beautiful.
Tippi Degré had quite the amazing childhood. Imagine growing up with wildlife photographers as parents, roaming the African landscape, and making friends with wild animals wherever you go.

Kim Keever’s large-scale photographs are created by meticulously constructing miniature topographies in a 200-gallon tank which is then filled with water. These dioramas of fictitious environments are brought to life with coloured lights and the dispersal of pigment, producing ephemeral atmospheres that he must quickly capture with his large-format camera. More of his work can […]
