In the spirit of Halloween, here’s a wonderful series that features the exploration of the unknown. Photographer Steve Duncan has been exploring the underground for years. Whether it’s from sewers, subways, or tunnels, everything is fair game. Check out a few of his pictures he’s taken along the way. As a bonus, we’ve also included a video of his journey. [more]
If you’re in the mood for food, take a look at these shots. They made my mouth water with the way the lighting, layout and processing has been executed. “Hannah Queen is from Georgia, USA, and her pictures have a touch of that southern sweetness. She loves photographing natural, comfort-rich foods, like fresh fruit and honey with tea. Her homey pictures make you want to live somewhere peaceful, start a garden, or just visit Georgia for a bag of peaches.” [more]
So as all of us know, hurricane Sandy is quickly approaching the east coast. This is has been labeled as the worst hurricane to hit the United States. “When Hurricane Irene came ashore last year it carried a surge of 4 feet. Sandy’s surge is expected to be 6 to 12 feet. More than 6 inches of rain is expected and in some areas it could top 12 inches” – LA times [more]
Benjamin Kanarek is quickly becoming one of my favorite fashion photographers. He just released his editorial spread, “In My Castle,” for Harpers BAZAAR en Español covering Haute Couture, which only comes twice a year and is only shown in Paris. The photos are absolutely gorgeous. This is truly fashion photography at it’s finest!

I’m starting to wonder when Ben Von Wong sleeps… Not only is he constantly producing great work, but he is also constantly producing amazing Behind The Scenes videos to accompany them. In his latest video Ben takes us behind the scenes on his shoot with the band SX in Belgium. Limited to being able to shoot in just an indoor pool, he had to overcome the challenge of making it appear as if the band was outdoors, in water, at sunset.
Growing up I was always excited when there was a James Bond marathon on TV. My dad was equally excited, but it took me a few years to realize his joy too. Bond films have always had a history of showcasing beautiful women as the romantic interest, and the new Bond film, Skyfall, is no exception. Harper’s Bazaar en Espanol features Bérénice Marlohe, the newest Bond girl in their November issue next month. Check out these photos (and video) of the gorgeous 33 year old shot by Benjamin Kanarek.
It’s amazing what some people can do with just their camera, self timer and a little imagination. Kyle Thompson is one of those people. He takes by far the most amazing self portraits I have ever seen. From gorgeous to creepy and everything in between, every single shot of his is perfect. [more]
Finnish Photographer Mikko Lagerstedt, whose work we featured once before here, has been producing stunning work for a few years now. This new series of images, titled “Visions From The Edge”, captures a wonderfully moody and almost otherworldly representation of his home country. [more]
Cooking isn’t my forte. Much less cutting food to make it look all nice and pretty for guests. Thats not the case with this man.Sakir Gokçenbag cuts common fruits and vegetables into geometric shapes and takes pictures of them. A lot of effort goes into these shots to make them perfect, and it shows. [more]
This has to be the most interesting thing I have seen in a long time. This idea, created by Sue Austin, was for the 2012 Cultural Olympiad in which she, in her self-propelled underwater wheel chair, explored the underwater world in order to generate a widespread public debate about the nature and value of contemporary arts practice shaped by the experience of disability.

Multimedia Artist Josiah Moore had always wanted to do a fun wedding picture when he and his wife got married. Well that opportunity came, and his wife agreed to go along with it! Armed with only a couple of props, he told the photographer his idea, and after the wedding Josiah got to work in photoshop to turn his wedding day into something out of a horror movie. This video shows a sped up look at his process. [more]
It’s that time of the year people can get into character, and dress up as someone else (and yes, make fool of themselves). This is also a great time for photographers to go out and look for interesting looking people, and take photos they normally couldn’t take. Check out these 20 great photos found on Flickr of people in costumes and let us know which are your favorites.
