American Cowboys (15 photos)

There is nothing glamorous about American Cowboys. They live on the desert plain, tending their land, while riding horses into the sunset. Then again, you might change your mind after you see this set.

Photographer Christopher Wilson takes some of the best shots I've ever seen in this particular landscape. His photos are a great tribute to one of America's…

Complete tour of the International Space Station

Through Tokyo at Night

I just found this totally mesmerizing video of a nighttime ride through Tokyo. It was posted to YouTube a week ago by user cat2525jp. Apparently the music is "A Furrow Dub" by Sugar Plant. I don't read Japanese so I can't tell you much more about it. I'd love to know more about how this was shot. If you can translate then please let us all know more details in the comments. Here is the… Continue

Dark Doings by Dan Witz

Lurking behind closed doors are people in situations most are hesitant to see. When you would walk by one of those doors, what would your reaction be? Different to all of us, but it's sure to leave a haunting impression.

Art like this would be virtually impossible to have on display in an art gallery. You could give a try, but it would take away most of the viewers experience. On the streets it would catch you by surprise when at a glance… Continue

Silent Nights (12 pics)

In this great photo set by Kevin Cooley, we're left wondering what these twelve individuals could be thinking. Alone in the city on a cold winter's night, they sit in silence with not a single soul around them. What memories could be racing through their head? Are they savoring the silence or swimming in their sea of problems?…

The World Can Change in a Day (4 total)

Monday, 10 September 2001 (day before 9/11)

Though I find most advertising that references a tragic event to be pretty distasteful, I also believe that when done in the right manner it can actually be not only respectful but powerful. In this older campaign for the newspaper Cape Times, these ads remind us that our lives…

Damn, I got chills.

The spot is a creative collaboration with NFL Films and Smuggler director Henry Alex Rubin (Whopper Freak-out,… Continue
