Photograph Per-Anders Pettersson travelled on the Chinese part of the Silk Road. It was a 3200-kilometer journey from Xian to Kashgar that took 3 weeks by train, bus, plane, 4x4… He did that experience to describe the life along the Silk Road in today’s China. Have a look, it’s interesting to see.
Extreme Therapy is a photo project of the photograph Brent Stirton about adaptive sports rehabilitation for severely injured U.S. soldiers. Here you can see pictures that depict people who don’t give up despite the tragedy they are going through. Touching and kinda inspiring. Take a look!
Those photos were shot by the photographer Marco Di Lauro. He covered in Afghanistan the trip of Angelina Jolie as UNHCR goodwill ambassador (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees). Take a look at his good work inside the post.
Why are there so few photos of UFOs? Why can we only see them in the far background of photos? Why do we see them only after the pictures are taken and not while taking them? Discover the truth behind UFO pictures inside the post!
American horror photographer Joshua Hoffine has created images of his worst childhood fears and it’s very well done. The good classics are depicted here like the killer clown, the monster under the bed or the stairs…etc. I let you discover his great scary works after the jump ))
A long time ago, people used Polaroids to take photos, now they use their cell phones and I must say, the effect is not the same… There’s a little something more interesting in those pics… Take a look!
Here is a collection of photos taken before the collapse of the Soviet Union. You will see what we can call Soviet punks. It’s interesting and always funny to see how things were a long time ago, especially in different countries.
Alan Sailer, 54, is a photographer based in California. He is an expert in high-speed photography. You can see a lot of high-speed photography now on the Internet, but I must say this series is by far my favorite, it’s very colorful and the shots are just amazing. Take a look at this big series, it is worth it.
Ian Fisher, a young American soldier, has been followed by reporters and a photographer for 27 months (June 2007 to September 2009). His family, his friends and the US Army allowed them to take photos and write about his life as a soldier, from the recruitment to his return from combat. This is an interesting photo journey.
Vatnajökull is the largest glacier in Iceland. It is located in the south-east of the island, covering more than 8% of the country. With a size of 8,100 km², it is the largest glacier in Europe in volume (3,100 km³) and the second largest in area. The average thickness of the ice is 400 m, with a maximum thickness of 1,000 m. Under the glacier, as under many of the glaciers of Iceland, there are several volcanoes. So here are some b/w pics of the largest glacier in Europe, don’t miss them, they are beautiful.
Another internet whim – photoshopping pictures to make them seem old and taken on a Polaroid camera. Apparently, people like it a lot because it gives a certain charm to photos. I collected the best selection of these works, I hope you’ll enjoy it.
Another good series of photo manipulation. This time, the idea was to make people, things or places look gigantic or miniature in comparison to the other elements in a photo, the whole process with exaggeration of course. Some are really original and well found! Just take a look…
The pics were taken by NASA astronauts from the International Space Station. At first, the pics were not interesting because all of them were blurred, but techniques and devices evolved over the years and now, you can have beautiful clear photos. One interesting thing is that Tokyo seen by night is rather green while other cities are more orange/yellow. In fact, the majority of the urban area in Tokyo has light green mercury vapour lamps instead of orange sodium vapour lamps.
You will see pictures by night of London, Madrid, Athens, Cairo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and lots more.
Donna de Cesare is a famous photographer from New York. Her works appeared in big publications like The New York Times magazine, Life, DoubleTake, Aperture, Mother Jones and some exhibitions all around the world. Her reportage about the spread of US gang culture to Central America has won national and international awards. Recognized as an expert on issues of youth identity and gang violence, De Cesare has worked as a consultant to UNICEF. Well, her resume is quite big so I will stop here. The strength of her works is that she tells the story of youth involved in gangs without stereotyping them and her photos speak by themselves. You will see interesting photos she took for her projects inside the post.
The idea is simple, but the photos (if you have some imagination) are cool. The concept consists of a photo of a couple in any situation you want but with the groom looking like a giant next to the bride or the bride looking like a fairy next to the groom, your choice Though, the bride here looks like a man’s toy, which can be seen as offensive for women… So, what d’ya think? Cool or creepy?
I love these photos. It’s so damn interesting to see how lived our ancestors ;)
Edit: Many of you wrote that these pics were not from 1960's. I didn't find these same photos anywhere else other than the source where it was noted "60's." But we changed the title though. If you have more information, let us know. Thanks.
