Amazing Hand-Colored Photographs of Old Japan

1886-1914



These amazing hand-colored photographs of old Japan give us a history lesson about what life was like in the late 1800's to early 1900's. As an isolationist country opening its doors to the outside world for the first time in more than 200 years, a truly astounding transformation took place and, as fate would have it, photography had just been… Continue

Portrait of an Endangered Species



Kenji Aoki took this magnificent shot of a live 5 ft. bluefin tuna for a New York Times cover story. The body of the fish looks incredible, almost like we're looking at the earth from outer space.



Aoki does not rely on retouching and his work requires minimal post production. He recently moved from Tokyo to New York in early November 2010.

The Jabulani ball has been the center of controversy since the start of the World Cup.



Already England's Robert Green, Algeria's Faouzi Chaouchi and Paraguay's Justo Villar have given up soft goals to what Nigeria's Dickson Etuhu called "the worst ball ever" in an interview with the BBC.

Japan - Heartbeats of Time by Trey Ratcliff

Trey Ratcliff, the most prominent HDR photographer of the past decade, compiled some of his favorite works from Japan and put together this amazing video titled "Japan - Heartbeats of Time."



"I spend a lot of time thinking about the way memory and sight work together," said Ratcliff. " I don't think we remember in 'pictures' or long videos... but something in between. Perhaps we also sense, at times, more than 30 fps, and unexpected parts of the brain fire when we… Continue
