Due to low hanging clouds and fog, the view atop Mt. Fuji is usually blocked, hindering climbers from experiencing the majestic sights surrounding the iconic mountain. But sometime in 2012, during his 4th attempt, photographer ‘Kris J B’ captured this rare shot of Mt. Fuji’s near-perfect triangle shadow draped over the landscape below.
Martin Bailey, who is based in Tokyo but works across all seven continents, is the nature photographer behind these statuesque shots of Antarctica icebergs. These are so, so beautiful we wish Antarctica was more accessible to us.

Moments in history from as far back as the 1800′s are […]

‘I Love Summer’ is a fun series by photographer Krista Long, wherein she captures the look on people’s faces at the exact moment they come shooting out of a water slide.

While on a recent trip to Costa Rica, photographer Chris Morgan captured these stunning close-up images of humming birds. While most of us have seen hummingbirds in action on National Geographic, there’s just something mesmerizing about seeing these energetic creatures finally hold still through photographs. In these images, we could take time to appreciate the spectrum of colors reflected in their feathers, even as they face off against each other.
Swiss photographer Sebastian Magnani visited the homes of different cat lovers throughout Switzerland and captured their portraits (cats included.) He then spliced together each feline head with the body of their respective owner, spending around 6-8 hours for just one combination. The result is ‘Undercats’, a follow-up series to the wildly popular ‘Underdogs’, which you […]
South African artist Chris Slabber has created an exquisite series of images using pigmented ink and paint falling through water. Slabber captures incredibly detailed images of the liquid plumes with high-speed photography and digitally manipulates them, blending in faces and figures.

How many people have shared your bed in the last 789 days? Even if you can remember all of them or there aren’t many to remember, chances are you didn’t document the whole lot of them tumbling, sleeping, smoking and rolling all over your bed. That is exactly what Dutch photographer Katy Strange did do, however, producing a series which she imaginatively dubbed ’789′.
Recreating childhood photos are nothing new, but this whole ‘conscious awkwardness’ thing has been catching on in recent years. Which makes the earnestness of Irina Werning’s Back to the Future series, that has her helping to recreate childhood snaps of people, even more amazing. It sounds like a serious deal (“I love old photos… (so) […]
