Veiled Truths is a photo essay by award-winning Iranian photographer, Hossein Fatemi. The project captures portraits of twenty woman through their veils, some of who wear the hijab voluntarily, giving a rare insight into the private lives of Iranian women. Hossein Fatemi was inspired to work on this project after a female friend was detain by police and held while the two were walking in Tehran. “Her crime? She wasn’t wearing the proper hijab — the head scarf that, in some […]
German photographer, Jakob Wagner has an incredible series of long exposures, shot from cities all over the world such as, New York, Shanghai and Dubai. Urban Zoom is a collection of abstract photos that use the lights from the city buildings and businesses to make the skylines come alive with a sense of movement.
This series of images titled City Silhouettes is an ongoing project by China-based photographer, Jasper James, which he has been shooting over the past several years in many different Asian cities. “Sometime in 2008, the number of people living in urban areas outnumbered those living in rural areas for the first time in history. I thought it would be interesting to shoot portraits of these city dwellers combined with the image of a city-scape. The images are made in […]
The not so new exhibition, Body Scripture II (2010) is a soothing mixture of photography and calligraphy by Israeli artist Ronit Bigal. Wrapping cited calligraphy taken from Biblical texts in black Indian ink on flesh, she captures the intricate curves of the exposed human figure through digital photography. Bigal’s breathtaking images discover a new curious terrain of textures and erotic landscapes formed on individual bodies as text flows over skin like waves that have their own story to tell. […]
These incredible photos were taken by Mikko Lagerstedt, an award winning photographer from Finland. It seems that Mikko is no stranger to the cold, shooting mostly dark scenes that invoke a dreamlike sense of adventure. His unique approach to landscape photography seemingly frame two worlds together by capturing eerie yet serene atmospheres that sometimes feature luminous figures lying dormant on the horizon. I highly encourage you to follow his photography on his blog or on Behance.
i’m not there is an emotional and compelling self portrait project by Spanish photographer, Pol Úbeda Hervàs. How can we accept that we are changing? How can we accept we hardly recognize ourselves in certain situations? I am changing at this very moment of my life. I do not react in the same ways I used to. I am surprised. Is that me? These pictures are the way I see myself now. My shadow is there but I […]
Mike Brodie train hopped for an entire decade. In the 10 years since he’s been riding, Brodie traveled more than 50,000 miles across 45 states. At first, he documented his rides with a Polaroid camera that his friend gave him. But when the company discontinued its film, he switched to 35mm. He has recently compiled some of them into a book, “A Period of Juvenile Prosperity,” which was released November 15. These are amazing moments captured of American youth […]
I just recently discovered the works of French photographer, Eulalie Varenne after happening upon her deviantART page, though it seems that she’s been at this for some time now. Her style is very whimsical, soft and full of fantasy. Definitely do yourself a favor and look through the rest of her pieces.
The works of photographer and visual artist, Jenn Violetta, delve headstrong into her own world of dark beauty. Pieces that she describes as “failures in one way or another” contain both youth and darkness. Her creative imagery appears to be cold and depressing while also being overpowered with emotions. I highly recommend viewing more of her work displayed on her Flickr page. [ via ]
These intricate and lovely pieces were crated by illustrator Colwyn Thomas, an artist from Durban, South Africa. He not only has an eye for character design but photography as well. Particularly his emotive portraits.

`isacg ~Samouel ~ryanwaff *fizzle-pop ~traceur68 Happy Friday! The week has finally come to an end. Here are five deviants you should check out. I actually can’t stop looking at Fire by ~ryanwaff. The eyes practically drag you in to an endless abyss. I, for one, am so happy that the weekend is here so that I can finally catch up on some overdue sleep. Staying up late editing over 800 photos can take it’s toll. I haven’t quite uploaded the ones […]

This one features a new image from my good friend Sun of Rose. (Check out his portfolio for more goodies.) A lot of muted colors in this weeks collective. It must be just one of those weeks.

When Jack Radcliffe’s daughter Alison was born, he did what any new parent would do. He photographed her. In the process of recording her growth, he developed an interest in human relations and the camera quickly became a part of their father-daughter relationship. Radcliffe’s photographic project, Alison, is a photo album of her life from infancy to womanhood. “The significance of these pictures emerges in retrospect. I realize as I look at them, that I created a visual life story […]
Wearing suits, hats and sometimes a sly smile, these men could easily have been simply posing for a family portrait. In reality, they are convicted criminals, arrested in Australia, getting their mugshots taken. This photo collection, taken in the 1920s, is pretty amazing and includes the mugshot of Harry Crawford – real name Eugenia Falleni, who was arrested and charged with murdering ‘his’ wife after passing herself off as a man since 1899.
Paris-based photographer Thomas Czarnecki has put a dark and morbid twist on the fairytale happy endings we have become so accustomed to. In his photographic collection From Enchantment To Down, he depicts our favorite fairytale heroines in alternative ending scenes. Although I believe that the poses in which these leading ladies lie could differ from one another fiercely to add even more depth to the series, this visual compilation is enchanting in its own chilling way.
