In order to shed light on the importance of Mexican and Latino immigrant labor on our society, Dulce Pinzón created a series of satirical documentary-style photographs that feature ordinary men and women in their work environments in New York. These are actual immigrants who have put on superhero costumes. The objective?… Continue
Brooke Nipar's electric personality really seeps through these fashion photographs. After spending 23 sun-soaked years in the valleys and on the beaches of southern California, Brooke broke for New York City. Now transformed into a city girl, she likes to spend free time from photo projects on the elusive hunt for an authentic L.A.-style burrito in New York, and…
Though we often post on modern photographers, I thought I would take a look back this week at some photographers who broke new ground. The ones who took photography to daring new heights.
If you enjoy looking at Hollywood behind-the-scenes, where the director carefully directs his leading actress, where the actress lets out a hearty laugh or where the crew nervously awaits a cue, you have photographer Bob Willoughby to thank. Popular Photography called him "The man who virtually… Continue
Using "green guerrilla tactics," eco-minded street artist Edina Tokodi brings nature closer to city dwellers through her living works of art. Unlike most other types of art forms, her site-specific moss installations are meant to be touched, felt.
"City dwellers often have no relationship with animals or greenery," says Tokodi. "As a public artist I feel a sense… Continue
The Lightsails Project is an interactive installation around the Millstaetter lake in Austria. Created by Söhne & Partner Architects in association with Karl Sodek these cionic towers are meant to guide visitors to the exhibits set around the lake. But they are more than just signposts: the towers draw their energy from their surroundings are also… Continue
It's beautiful isnt it? But it's also an image of a scarred landscape. What does it do to me, now that I realized I found beauty in things that are mutated/mutilated? I love art that makes me raise these questions. Art that instinctively makes me think differently and experience contrast.
As the photographer and the subject, a self-portrait is how you see yourself and how you want others to see you. If you are Suzy Wimbourne from Lancaster, UK you must see yourself as a passionate, creative, and sweet. In her 365 day project on Flickr, she's captured herself in the loveliest of…
To promote their new website, French lingerie company Aubade reinvented the "girl next door fantasy" on the streets of Paris. The steamy marketing scheme was created by ad agency, Chainsaw and Mlle… Continue
The Lisa tipped us onto this cool new video entitled Parkour Motion Reel. The short animated piece was done with a technical pen, frame by frame. Tracing back to the old flip book style in a new way, Parkour Motion Reel does an excellent job with classic animated… Continue

If you are red-green colour blind how would one explain color to each other? If graphic design can offer a solution, how would one translate color into graphics?
Color Add has done some amazing research and development on this. They started with giving thre basic forms to the three primary colours blue (cyan), red (magenta) and yellow. All other graphic color codes are based on those. Just like how all colors find their origin in the… Continue
Just how did people from around the world celebrate the start of 2010? They gathered in groups large and small experiencing fantastic fireworks displays at night then spent the day doing everything from sprinting into icy cold water for a dive in The North Sea, in the Hague, to trekking to Mount Fuji in the southwest of Tokyo to see the symbol of good luck.…
As silly as it seems that actress Kate Hudson struts her stuff in designer dresses during the day, I can't help but like this refreshing photo shoot by Peter Lindbergh. Perhaps it's the expressions on Kate's face that I enjoy. Photographed by Peter Lindbergh, Kate seems confident, cute and even a little kooky.
Also, I like how Kate is refreshingly honest… Continue
Jim Denevan is a Northern California artist who makes large scale designs utilizing sand, earth and ice. Using only a stick or rake Denevan creates massive geometric shapes similar to crop circles. From the look of these pictures many of these designs were done at my favorite morning surf spot in San Francisco. Unfortunately he must wake up later than I did because I never got to see one…
At first glance, it's easy to assume that these images were photoshopped. Amazingly, they were not. This custom black-and-white Santa Claus costume was made by Brody S. for San Francisco SantaCon 2009. To create the illusion, a grey wig, fabric, contacts, and Kryolan body paint were used.
"When I decided to make a Desaturated Santa costume, I realized that to…
These hilarious ads by Milan-based agency Leo Burnett feature chocolate animals who look totally wired on caffeine. The ads are part of Italian chocolate brand Zaini's campaign to promote their chocolate, Koflì, which contains coffee inside.
ROAR!!! It's the year of the tiger! And so I'm gonna kick it off with some Tiger Onitsuka kicks. Here it is...The latest collection of Asics made in collaboration with Tokidoki. (Okay actually the year of the tiger starts on Valentines day...but blegh that is too lame!)
Tokidoki designs are heavily influenced by Japanese ones. The tokidoki tiger is a good… Continue
