There are no better places to be all alone, far from the civilization and everything that goes with it – far from the people, the noise, the pollution, the problems… Those are perfect places for people willing to rest far from everything!

This incredible project called Running the Numbers: An American Self-Portrait, was made by photographer Chris Jordan. It’s not just raw numbers which won’t give us a good representation or won’t have a desired effect on us. With these photos, the quantities of everything consumed in America can be seen through another angle, more interesting I would say.
Skull With Cigarette, 2007 [based on a painting by Van Gogh]. Depicts 200,000 packs of cigarettes, equal to the number of Americans who die from cigarette smoking every six months.
Ice-skating is not that easy, everyone knows that and we can see it by the tensed faces of figure-skaters, but it seems okay while we watch it on TV. The interesting part starts when we make a pause during a precise moment. This way we can see how their faces are priceless :))
I’m sure you’re wondering who’s living in such a snowy and isolated place? Well actually, not a lot of people and it’s certainly not their first home as it is for their work! It’s in fact a meteorological station which is located in the Giant Mountains, in the north of the Czech Republic.
