Cowabunga, Dude! From January 16th to March 21st, herds of vibrantly designed fibreglass cows of CowParade will be grazing the streets of Madrid. The concept of CowParade started out in Switzerland in 1998, by renowned artistic director Walter Knapp, who had the innovative idea to hold an international exhibition of public art to raise money for charity. Since then,… Continue

Yesterday will surely be one of the most historic days that we will ever experience in our lives. January 20th, 2009, Barack H. Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States of America - the first African-American ever to hold the office of U.S. Commander-in-Chief. It's really interesting to see how different people from all over the globe reacted on this very special day. Collected here are photographs of the event, the participants, and some of the witnesses around the… Continue

In many parts of the world, winter is associated with snowfall. As brightly reflective snow covers the earth, it creates a magnificent effect, and seemingly intensifies the beauty of its surroundings. Here are some spectacular photos displaying one of the most gorgeous seasons of the year.…

I really like this spread of beautiful French actress and Oscar winner Marion Cotillard, who is best know for her role in La Vie En Rose. Credit goes to photographer, Bruno Dayan, who took these shots for the cover of Madame Figaro. Every photo seems to have a different feel and he does a great job utilizing a variety of color and location. Great work Bruno!… Continue

I've always been fascinated with sailboats. I love how they are magnificently grandiose, yet with a crew that works in unison, they move with grace and purpose across an unpredictable sea. As there are sailing competitions year-round, here are some photos from the past year, courtesy of the Boston Globe.

I absolutely love this photo shoot of Olivia Wilde in Flaunt Magazine. You may have seen Olivia in the FOX drama House or you if you like slasher films, you'll recognize her as Bea in Turistas. An Irish-American actress, Olivia hasn't been branded a sex bomb like Angelina or Alba but we're sure she's right behind Scientology submission.… Continue

It is no secret that I have an unabashed crush on Chinese fashion photographer Chen Man (陳曼).
Celebrated as the best fashion/beauty photographer from the "born in the 80's" generation, Chen Man (陳曼) made a significant impact when she photographed covers for the Chinese fashion magazine Vision from 2003 to 2007.
The women boldly captured by her lens are colorful and sensual, courageous and playful. Her aptitude in Photoshop and lighting is what sets her… Continue

An awesome set of photos by one of the most widely respected sports and lifestyle photographers in the world, Bo Bridges. After graduating from Miami University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography, Bo moved to Vail and then Hermosa to pursue his passion for outdoor photography. From skiing and snowboarding to surfing and swimming, no one captures sports… Continue

How cool is this? Artist Liz Hickock must have been a big Bill Cosby fan back in the day because she uses a whole lot of jigglin' Jell-O to create stunning models of historical landmarks of San Francisco.
"I create glowing, jellied scale models of urban sites, transforming ordinary physical surroundings into something unexpected and… Continue

Any which way you look at it, Brad Pitt's face featured prominently in this month's W magazine, in all its silent, black and white sheen, is a bit creepy and a little too close too for comfort. The style is reminiscent of caveman busts at the Natural History Museum. So I made these.
Angelina's recent… Continue

I like this animal photo set by Mikel Uribetxeberria of Madrid. It's almost seems as though the animals have a strong sense that they are displaced and trying to sort things out in their own minds. I especially like the gorilla who looks extremely comfortable but seems to be deep in thought.…

I wish I'd known about JPG Magazine sooner. The online photography magazine, whose content consists solely of submissions from readers - is close to joining the fallen in the Publishing dead pool.
The e-magazine and its parent company 8020 Media was founded on a seed investment from Cnet founder Halsey Minor. Although the publication failed because of a doomed, antiquated business model (based on selling print ads, ughyee) and a clunky format (downloadable PDFs,… Continue

It's like China's version of Disneyland on Ice. These impressive ice sculptures are part of a display for the upcoming Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival. As well as the colorful life-sized ice buildings, which reflect traditional Chinese architecture, there is also a 160m (524ft) high Father Christmas sculpture, said by organizers to be the world's largest.… Continue

Animals never cease to amaze me. Some are cute, some are scary - some are serious, some are funny. One thing is for sure...they're all pretty amusing. Here is a compilation of best animal pictures of 2008.
