"It took us 90 minutes to fly to Grimsvotn with a strong wind against us," said filmmaker Jon Gustafsson a couple days ago. "The eruption looked magnificent in the sunset. Once we landed 5 miles away from the crater the cold glacier air hit us like a truck. We tried to work outside but I only lasted for a couple of minutes.
"Pilot Reynir Petursson also didn’t want to stay on the ground for too long since it was very windy and the ash fall was unpredictable.… Continue

Sometimes, technology is totally mind-blowing. You'll be amazed to see how functional this bionic hand is. It will be fascinating to see where this bionic technology goes in the next five years...
Patrick, a 24-year-old Austrian, decided to have his dysfunctional hand amputated and replaced with a bionic hand. After being electrocuted at work, he lost the use of his left hand. As he demonstrates the extra movement in his new bionic hand, we see him him open… Continue

It's a story we read about all the time. What started off as a mere hobby soon turned into a full time career. So it was for Catherine Pluchart who decided, just recently, that she could make that huge leap. Not that she didn't have clues along the way.

"At 21, I passed the entrance examination of the ‘Ecole Nationale Supérieure’… Continue

While many of us will try to master landscape or architecture photography, Ilse Moore is shooting somewhere entirely different. Her specialty doesn't lie in taking photos above water or land, it lies in shooting below it.
Considered to be especially challenging, underwater photography requires not just specialized equipment but certain learned techniques. Just like any other type…
If your hard work isn't paying off what do you do? You ask for a little luck. Esther Aarts, which you may remember from here, made the clever Push Your Luck series as a way for her to create more design work involving type (and in doing so, she found her own luck).
"A great photo is one that gives the viewer this instant, gut feeling, of what is going on," said Jakob Calson, POYi World Understanding Award winner.
There is a power that photojournalism possesses. Capturing real moments in time, photojournalism tells a story but maintains the facts. It creates an instant connection between all of those who view the photos in ways that other mediums can't. (To see what we mean, watch the…
Originally commissioned for Sleek magazine's Food/Feed issue, these artistic photos combine three different elements that don't often go together - contorted figures, fashion and food. Photographer Bill Durgin found this series, called Figures & Wares, "quite challenging" because he needed to figure out how to make distorted and unrecognizable bodies mimic still life. In… Continue
Luca Pierro isn't just an artist or photographer...he's both. You would think that he uses Photoshop to create all the effects you see in these stunning self-portraits but, surprisingly, he doesn't. Instead, he only brings into play natural elements like flour, clay, milk, and water.
I caught up with the talented Italian artist to ask him a few questions about this series of… Continue
