Atlanta based photographers Regis And Kahran are the creative minds behind CreativeSoul Photography. Here is their photo series called Afro Art.
“We feel that it is so important for kids of color to be able to see positive images that look like them in the media,” Kahran told in an interview. “We hope that girls around the world will be inspired to love their unique differences and beauty within.”
London-based photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz creates these striking superhero women portraits with milk and food coloring, layering up to 200 photos of the same model with different milk splashes to create the final images.
Photographer Charles Fréger examines costumes and masks of folk festivals and traditions of 18 different countries in Europe in his series Wilder Mann.
Guido Argentini’s models in his series “Argentum,” are covered in shiny silver makeup and are meant to cover the range of women in Greek mythology, from Demeter and Persephone to Artemis and Electra.
Evoking the luminous polished planes of the work of Brancusi and the verve of Degas’ ballet sketches, these photographs endow the human body with both the solidity of sculpture and the vivid energy of dance.
Using geometrical props Guido Argentini created a contrast between the human body and the archetypal forms of geometry: triangles, circles and squares.
“When thinking of iconic romance, ask yourself if any imagery (paintings, photographs, film-stills) comes to mind that is not showing heterosexual couples? Probably not," says New York photographer Braden Summers, who has created his kickstarter project “All Love Is Equal” to show classically romantic scenes with gay couples in the UK, France, India, Lebanon, Brazil and the U.S.
“A large driving force behind creating this series was actually less about affecting the gay community directly, and more about giving the general population a way to relate to gay imagery which is devoid of sex, victimization, or banality – themes that might usually prevent some folks from connecting.”
“The photographs are not documentations, they are dreamy illustrations of what open expressions of love in different cultures *could* look like in the future, more accepting time.”
Over the course of three years, photojournalist Peter Menzel and writer Faith D'Aluisio traveled from their California home to visit over 30 countries to capture people and what they eat in a single day. The book that they made of the project, What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets, features a fascinating array of people and diets.
Photographer Antoine Bruy’s ongoing series, “Scrublands,” grew up in urban France and began documenting the off-the-grid culture with his camera from Spain to Switzerland to Romania,
“Most of the farmers had been living in big cities and I really respect their decision to say, ‘This is not my thing and I can't live this way anymore.’ I think there are a lot of people thinking this way but few making the steps to change. I was interested in how they managed to live another way.”
Very similar to Miniature Foodscapes by photographers Pierre Javelle and Akiko Ida, Brazilian artist William Kass has created these stylish foodscapes with tiny adventures in them — too fun to not share.
Sometimes icebergs flip over. It's apparently a fairly rare occurrence, but when it happens it exposes something alien and mesmerizing. As he sailed through the Drake Passage to Antarctica, Interface designer Alex Cornell caught the appearance on his Canon 5D Mark II camera.
“We were lucky to see a massive iceberg flip; when this happens, the color is a surreal, alien blue. They don’t flip often, so it was a pretty rare sight to see. It’s hard to tell scale, but this was an epic iceberg. It was amazing to see the interior. There were air bubbles and flowing water throughout. It looked like an alien artifact.”
Photographer Thomas Herbrich winnowed his Smoke series from more than 100,000 images of down to the 20 he felt captured his vision. Shot at speeds of 1/10000 or faster, the series reveals forms even the eye would miss.
Photographer Donald Weber spent 6 years capturing life in Russia and Ukraine. In that time, he was able to convince the Ukrainian police to give him access to their interrogations. The photos that became his book, Interrogations, are bleak, terrifying, intimate and disturbing, especially in light of current Ukrainian events.
