Exploring the imagination that we all remember as children and the imagination that reading brings to us, photographer Richard Johnson photographed this with that in mind. What’s great is that the model is his son! I am sure he will love this and treasure it as he gets older as well.
Plenty of people I know across Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and on a personal basis are really great photographers. They share a lot of their work passionately. I wanted to make a site where they can submit shots, whether published or not, and have a wider audience.
Often, they take single shots or a series that are suitable for their websites and their social media websites but not enough to necessarily get published anywhere. I wanted to create a fun social platform where we publish some of their best recent shots.
You can submit your most recent work that you’re proud of and it goes live for everyone to see. Hopefully, with enough people and support, we’ll have new work posted daily, introducing you to new photographers and showcasing some pretty interesting work from across the world.
If you took a series of photos, you can submit your best shot and link us to the rest of the series, similarly to how you see the format on our website.
So whether your shots are published or not, feel free to submit some of your favorite shots, from the past or in the upcoming future as you shoot them.
Not every shot gets approved for the sake of quality but no matter what you shoot, as long as it’s great photography, we’ll showcase it to everyone!
Now is the best time to submit, as entries will soon escalate.
Let’s bring discovery back into photography. I hope you’ll join us!
If you like what we’re doing, spread the word! This is only possible because of you.
You usually think of cancer of the lungs, or other organs. But you never think of cancer spreading to the bone. This image showcases what bone cancer looks like to a person. This is very fascinating yet sad. It must be a very painful experience while being alive.
Myers wanted to take his work one step further by creating a scene that gives a sense of motion. “I don’t want that dead portrait look anymore,” he says. “So I want to actually make a scene, something that appears to be happening that isn’t really happening. So you’re not only getting the 3D effect that’s a lie, it’s an effect, because of the screws, but then you’re getting another effect that the fan is actually in motion and that something is actually blowing off the page.
“So it’s kind of a test to see how far I can push this material.”
Myers worked with filmmaker Benjamin Pitts to show us how the piece comes together in a beautiful, short documentary. While watching Myers bring it to life is amazing enough, listening to fellow artists describe his technique will give you a whole new appreciation for his work. “These are special,” one artist says, “and they’re very labor intensive. It takes many, many, many man hours. It takes a lot of hours to do an oil painting, but this is an oil painting and a sculpture. And painting on screw heads is not as easy as it is on a flat surface.”
Urban spaces transform into florescent geometric illusions in artist Aakash Nihalani’s unique yet temporal works. He uses bright lines of tape to single out elements of the city landscape, giving them the look of having more dimensions than they actually have: doorways pop out of their flat walls, homeless people sit on seemingly raised platforms and highlighted bricks fall out of place.
Nihalani follows an intuitive approach to his art, often creating the pieces from gut instinct on the spot. He carefully keeps the designs in visual perspective, overriding the real forms of his urban canvas and creating isometric rectangles and squares that appear to float above the surface. Many of his pieces are so well done they look to be computer generated… but don’t be fooled, this is all tape.
