Hayden Wood does some excellent stuff. He was a Creative Retoucher and Graphic Artist at the advertising agency Ogilvy, New Zealand before he came into his own as a photographer. Check out some of his “before and after” shots on his site as well (more…)

Nothing is sacred. Especially not when it comes with so many points of articulation. Woody’s phrase, “There’s a snake in my boot!” has never sounded so suggestive.
In Russia they certainly know how to mix it up and bring school to the next level. In an attempt to make their yearbook a little more fun, they came up with the idea to let the kids draw whatever they wanted on the blackboard and then be photographed in front of it in different poses. Let me tell you, the result is something that should be copied by every school around the world. What fun is to sit in front of a single colored wall and have your photo taken on picture day? That’s just boring.
By doing it this way, the kids bring to it their creativity, thoughts and dreams. What more could you want from a picture that is supposed to express positivity and creativity? Somehow though I doubt they drew these images themselves; however, I can imagine they got some help portraying what they had in their mind. That’s still awesome in my book. Their yearbook must be the most creative yet, don’t you think? And here we go, now we’ll see a landslide of yearbook pictures being sent to us and every other geek blog on the Internet. No worries, bring it on! We’d love to check them all out!

From the mind of James Mollison comes a remarkable series capturing the diversity of and, often, disparity between children’s lives around the world through portraits of their bedrooms.
Alongside portraits of the children themselves. Each pair of photographs is accompanied by an extended caption that tells the story of each child: Kaya in Tokyo, whose proud mother spends $1,000 a month on her dresses; Bilal the Bedouin shepherd boy, who sleeps outdoors with his father’s herd of goats; the Nepali girl Indira, who has worked in a granite quarry since she was three; and Ankhohxet, the Kraho boy who sleeps on the floor of a hut deep in the Amazon jungle.
Where Children Sleep began on a brief journey to engage with children’s rights and morphed into a thoughtful meditation on poverty and privilege, its 56 images spanning from the stone quarries of Nepal to the farming provinces of China to the silver spoons of Fifth Avenue.

Baojun Yuan is a member of China Senior Photographers Association. He is highly respected by Chinese people. Why? In the past nine years, Mr. Yuan has repaired more than 2000 old photos for residents for free. Course it is not surprising enough if you have no idea about this great man. Mr. Yuan is 76 years old now. He didn’t know Photoshop until his was 60 years old. Mr. Yuan learned repairing skills from a teacher and was soon skilled in it. Considering that repairing old photos is too expensive for most of the residents to afford, Mr. Yuan himself bought a computer and a scanner and began service people without any charge. In his words “my teacher just taught me how to repair the photos, but he forgot to tell me how to charge”.
Let’s have a look at Mr. Yuan’s works with respect.
Photographer Rüdiger Nehmzow captured these photos of clouds four miles above the Earth through open airplane doors. There is a video at the end of the post that does a pretty good job of showing how they did it, maybe skip ahead to 2:30 or so just before they take off. (more…)
Beautiful series of pictures by Eric Cahan. What got my attention were the colours. It wasnt until abt the third picture that i realised these wasnt graphical gradients created in an imaging program like Photoshop or Illustrator. But these are actual photographs of actual locations. The stark simplicity makes me appreciate it even more.
Some are of these costumes are quite a common sight in comic-conventions around the world, these are the selected few that are rarely used by cosplayers. And im pleasantly surprised, at how good the overall outcome is. Hot girl + geeky comic/80s cartoon character = awesomeness. Can you name them all?
These are some of the photos + videos from the recent short trip to Bali. Didnt have enough forethought to actually plan and document the whole process. Oh well…. there will always be a “next” trip.
