In the years after World War II, Berlin saw a number of new skyscrapers erected to provide the burgeoning middle class with affordable housing. Even though many were designed by famous architects they were eventually viewed as concrete monsters and moldered in disuse, until recently.
Photographer Vincent LaForet took his camera and a helicopter and captured the City of Angels at night like no one has ever done before. The detail in each shot is unbelievable and the colors almost feel unreal. It’s like seeing a neon glow spread itself all across the giant, beautiful city that is Los Angeles.
These photos from ErAn Croitoru’s Animated Photography series are awesome because they bring normal objects like alarm clocks, hammers, birthday candles, coffee pots, fruits and other things to life. In each photo that he creates, each item has their own personality and goofy story. It’s clever, creative and just…
To create the perfect Sports Illustrated spread for Houston Rockets star James “The Beard” Harden, photographer Robert Seale decided to double the beauty of the NBA player’s home-team skyline by using a huge piece of Plexiglas to create a mirrored effect.
I love the mystery of Robert Burn's underground tunnel photography. They look like portals into another world, entrances to alien homes and haunting, unused gateways leftover from a different time. But they're just photographs of tunnels in Milwaukee, Wisconsin that have been perfectly lit and captured to heighten…
These time-slice photographs of Shanghai and Hong Kong are beautifully unreal. In each photo, photographer Dan Marker-Moore captures an entire day of those amazing cities from one vantage point. You see day shift into night, sunlight giving way for city lights and it all adds up for photos that looks absolutely…
My God, take a look at these photos. Master photographer Vincent LaForet captured San Francisco in such incredible detail and in such a fascinating perspective that it's truly breathtaking. You can see the entire city—all 7 miles by 7 miles—stamped on the Earth with its beautiful bridges stretched across the sea.
Lieutenant Chris Nigus sent us these series of spectacular photos taken while flying on missions during the last couple of years of his deployment in Japan. Above you can see him flying low level in Japan's Orange Route. Some of them show weapons firing from his F/A-18E Super Hornet.
After capturing the most amazing images of New York ever, Vincent Laforet is using the same technology to photograph other major cities around the world. This is Las Vegas. The results are even crazier than NYC—with this unprecedented clarity and from this vantage point, Sin City looks like the world of Tron. Unreal.
The Universe is an incredible place that defies belief. We take it for granted because the distances and scale is so alien to our little tiny pale blue dot that our brains can't even process them. Maybe that's why Italian artist St. Tesla turns galaxies and nebulae into tiny precious jewels.
Most scientists discard the possibility of a massive extinction if Earth's magnetic field reverses its current orientation. That hasn't stopped French artist François Ronsiaux from creating these images of one completely crazy and silly apocalyptic scenario: An increase of the sea level to more than 984 feet (300…
It's always exciting to receive a message from a master like Vincent Laforet telling you about his new photos. This time he has outdone himself (once again!) so I had to share it right away. Never in my life I've seen New York from this perspective and with this stunning quality—so perfect it feels unreal.
These pictures by photographer Rebecca Rütten made me laugh so much because she re-created Renaissance-era poses and still life paintings with people today and a whole lot of junk food. It's a wonderful commentary on our culture and is pretty much what the Renaissance would look like, if it happened in 2015.
That trail behind the Empire State Building is a Minotaur V rocket taking a spacecraft to the Moon. The photo was taken by Ben Cooper from Top of the Rock, Rockefeller Center, 265 miles away from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. Here are 10 more phenomenal launch photos from Mr. Cooper:
Photographer Julian Calverley recently got a job in Faroe Islands, in the Kingdom of Denmark. He used the frequent dead times during the shooting to take some pictures of the surroundings with his camera phone. The result is this stunning collection of otherworldly landscapes that makes me wish I was there now.
Greg Boratyn captures landscapes with absolute perfection. The photo above, taken in Patagonia, Argentina, using multiple exposures while the rising moon was hitting at the right angle, is a perfect example. This gallery has a lot more.
Dutch photographer Hans Eijkelboom spend 20 years traveling to megapolis like Paris, New York or Shanghai to document the influence of globalization in the way people dress. His series People of the Twenty-First Century show clear patterns of taste and behavior that repeat across nationalities, races, and cultures.
London-based photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz created this badass 2015 calendar featuring pictures of beautiful superheroines wearing impossible liquid suits, including Captain Marvel, She-Hulk, or Catwoman. [NSFW-ish]
I read this series of animated GIFs by François Sola in two ways. The poetic way, where time stops so we can appreciate the details of a normal day in the subway stations of Lyon, France. And the it-creeps-me-out way, where some people have the power to stop time and move freely while others are completely frozen.
