Dutch historian, Jo Hedwig Teeuwisse, blends the past and present using photos from World War II and pictures from the same places today. Jo will literally spend hours trying to locate scenes of photos from the war and then photograph the modern day scene at the same angles so that she can blend the two pictures in Photoshop thereby creating her “Ghosts of History” photo series.

With it being halloween and all, I figure this would be a perfect set of shots for it. Andre Govia has a very good eye for the creepy and scary shots. This series of shots from abandoned locations in Europe are simply spectacular. He is currently on a tour to capture the most haunted and creepy images he can and is doing a very very good job of it so far. [more]
Inspiration comes from a variety of sources, but I’m guessing that seeing the works of others has always been big for you. Seeing someone else’s work probably is what got you interested in photography to begin with. So what gets your creativity flowing? For me, though my work in photography resides in the Advertising / Editorial realm, inspiration for my work comes in the form of photojournalism. [more]
As Fstoppers’ resident aviation dork and lone Angeleno, I’d be making a huge mistake not to share this incredible timelapse of Endeavour’s final journey. Filmed over a sleepless weekend by an all-star timelapse team, the video chronicles Endeavour’s slow, delicate, and surreal journey (which made for the perfect timelapse subject) from Los Angeles International Airport to its final resting place at the California Science Center.

We’ve featured Ian Ruhter before: his Silver and Light series was an incredible display of talent, ingenuity and originality. I’m glad to say that he’s back at it again, this time criss-crossing the country, telling the stories of inspiring people with his portable darkroom setup. Watch as Ian shoots Madison, a young girl who overcame some serious setbacks, and creates a series of incredible portraits using his custom made (very large format) camera which is built into the back of a box van.

Twenty-seven people were all there were when Shackleton’s Antarctic expedition went awry. Luckily for us (they were lucky enough, all surviving after months and months), one of those was a photographer, Frank Hurley. Here are some amazing photographs documenting the 22 months spent stranded on the world’s most remote continent. [more]
Now available on Netflix, “Shooting Robert King” goes behind the scenes of what it was like to be a documentary war photographer. You always hear and see images from the war but NEVER about what it’s like to be thrown into it as a documentary photographer. At just 24, American photojournalist Robert King began his 15 year journey to follow his passion. Originally he set out to win a Pulitzer prize, but in the end found himself with a life changing experience. [more]
For his series, Mugshot Doppelgänger, artist Michael Jason Enriquez took mugshots of some of today’s most well-known celebrities and matched them to 1920s mugshot doppelgängers, changing the names to help identify the celebrity pictured. It’s an interesting project and quite fun to see… [more]
Geoffrey Ingersoll, war-veteran and now freelance journalist and photographer, shared these photos documenting the raid on Lewar Jel Jay.

Then and Now photos have always been common place in cases of a natural disaster, but photographer Shawn Clover, annoyed by improperly aligned photos decided to embark on his own project.

Working as an investigative photographer for the National Child Labor Committee (NCLC), Lewis Hine (1874-1940) portrayed working and living conditions of children in the United States between 1908 and 1924. The Library of Congress’ National Child Labor Committee Collection includes more than 5,100 photographs that came with the records of the organization. Many of the pictures are familiar, but others are relatively unexplored. [more]
These images were taken by Austin-based photographer Dennis Darling. These photos of some of the last living Holocaust survivors are part of his documentary project called Families Gone to Ash. This group of individuals in particular were held at Terezin concentration camp, located in what is now Czech Republic. I would love to see more of his work, but Darling lives under the radar, with very little web presence.
Sure, it’s just a mountain range. But it’s a martian mountain range. If it were anywhere else, it likely wouldn’t be as interesting, unfortunately. But it’s photos like this that remind us of simple beauty. Add to that the fact that it was taken millions of miles away on a planet no human has ever walked on, and it becomes even more astonishingly beautiful. So let yourself get caught up in the moment!

With the recent and unfortunate passing of Neil Armstrong, we’re reminded of his legacy. We think back to the days of the Space Shuttle program and what it meant. If you’ve ever been fortunate to see a launch, you know how amazing it can be. Even as a photographic opportunity, you typically see photos of launches from a distance. Photographer, Dan Winters, captures these brilliant up close photos and other details of the Space Shuttle program. [more]
