Top 10 Most Popular Posts in 2010


To wrap up 2010, we've put together our list of the 10 most popular posts on My Modern Met this year. We had over 9 million unique visitors to our site who came in to see some of the most incredibly creative art, design and photography on the internet. A big thanks to photographers like Jason Lee and Sacha Goldberger for not only sharing their creative photos with us but for inspiring us with their moving stories. Now, without further ado, here are your top 10 posts.

10. Van Gough's Paintings Get Tilt-Shifted

After seeing how tilt-shift photography could make real world scenes appear like miniature models, Serena Malyon, a third-year art student, decided to simulate the effect on Van Gogh's famous paintings. Using Photoshop, she manipulated the light and adjusted the focus to make us see these paintings in ways we could have never imagined. [Link]

9. Unbelievable 3D Drawings


These three-dimensional pencil drawings by Chilean artist Fredo are absolutely mind-blowing! The 17-year-old prodigy draws objects that look like they're about to jump off the page! In fact, by taking pictures of his art at just the right angle, it's hard to differentiate what's real and what's not. [Link]

8. Audrey Kawasaki's Creative Workspace


I love how Audrey Kawasaki has given us an intimate look at her workspace. Seeing her tools, her cat perched precariously on top of her green chair and her little knick knacks that surround her, we start to see a more complete picture of the artist. [Link]

7. Mysterious Shadow People


Kumi Yamashita has a secret power. She can place wood or metal objects in just the right light to make mysterious shadow people show their true selves. The genius of it all lies in the fact that without the lighting and shadows the objects would never give away her secret. These surprising silhouettes only come out when beckoned to do so. [Link]

6. 22 Incredible Photos of Faraway Places


Looking through Steve McCurry's large body of work, we get to experience fantastic faraway places we can only dream about visiting. It's in his incredible photos that we feel connected to the world at large, appreciating our similarities and our differences, our cultures and our histories, and our past and our present in a truly unique and inspiring way.

5. Photorealistic Pencil Drawings


Dedicated artist Paul Lung spends up to 60 hours sketching these photorealistic pencil drawings. A graphic artist from Hong Kong, Paul uses a 0.5mm technical pencil to draw everything from his family and friends to cats. His highly detailed work has been written about in newspapers like The Sun and Telegraph. [Link]

4. Hyperrealistic Acrylic Body Painting


Alexa Meade thinks completely backwards. Most artists use acrylic paints to create portraits of people on canvas. But not Meade - she applies acrylic paints on her subjects and makes them appear to be a part of the painting! [Link]

3. The Ghosts of World War II's Past


Taking old World War II photos, Russian photographer Sergey Larenkov carefully photoshops them over more recent shots to make the past come alive. Not only do we get to experience places like Berlin, Prague, and Vienna in ways we could have never imagined, more importantly, we are able to appreciate our shared history in a whole new and unbelievably meaningful way.

2. Grandma's Superhero Therapy


A few years ago, French photographer Sacha Goldberger found his 91-year-old Hungarian grandmother Frederika feeling lonely and depressed. To cheer her up, he suggested that they shoot a series of outrageous photographs in unusual costumes, poses, and locations. Grandma reluctantly agreed, but once they got rolling, she couldn't stop smiling. [Link]

1. A Father Who Creatively Captures His Kids


If there was a prize that could be given out to the most creative father, I'd hope that it was awarded to Jason Lee. A wedding photographer by trade, he's used to capturing some of the most important moments in a couples' lives. As a longtime fan of Jason's photos on Flickr however, I think the real magic happens when he turns the camera onto his daughters. [Link]
