Amazing aerial photos show Las Vegas like you have never seen it before

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. » 2/10/15 4:11am 2/10/15 4:11am

Beautiful tilt-shift photos turn the Universe into precious jewels

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. » 2/05/15 11:28pm 2/05/15 11:28pm

A crazy apocalyptic vision of the inversion of Earth's magnetic poles

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… » 1/23/15 6:34pm 1/23/15 6:34pm

These are the most amazing aerial photos of New York ever, period

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. » 1/10/15 8:03pm 1/10/15 8:03pm

Hilarious photographs recreate Renaissance paintings with junk food

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. » 1/09/15 12:18am 1/09/15 12:18am

The stunning beauty of the Faroe Islands

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. » 1/07/15 12:21am 1/07/15 12:21am

These pictures prove that there's nothing original in the way we dress

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. » 12/23/14 11:03pm 12/23/14 11:03pm

These perfect GIFs seem extracted from an episode of the Twilight Zone

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. » 12/09/14 1:19am 12/09/14 1:19am

The disturbing horror portraits of Danielle Tunstall (NSFW)

Danielle Tunstall told Sploid that she is as a horror photographer who wants to share her psychosis with us. She lives up to her description. Her images are highly stylized, often bloody and always obsessively crafted. Sometimes there is a sexual component, but every time her photos are disturbing. NSFW. » 12/01/14 3:07am 12/01/14 3:07am

These parasite bugs can control their hosts' brains from inside

The November's issue of National Geographic has a fascinating article titled Mindsuckers, the tale of tiny beasts that get into their victims bodies to eat them from inside and control their bodies, turning them into remote controlled zombies. And there are more horror ahead, masterfully photographed by Anand Varma. » 11/26/14 4:15pm 11/26/14 4:15pm

Lewis Baltz, Photographer of America's Changing Landscape, Has Died

Over the course of the mid to late twentieth century, photographers set out to document the rapidly shifting makeup of America's expanse. Lewis Baltz was one of the foremost artists to capture the landscape and architecture in an amazingly austere, yet moving way. He passed away this week at age 69 of a long-term… » 11/25/14 3:50pm 11/25/14 3:50pm

Mt. Asgard looks like the actual home of the Viking gods

Artur Stanisz takes perfect photos of landscapes. So perfect, in fact, that sometimes they seem unreal. Like this image of Mount Asgard, a strange double-peak on the Cumberland Peninsula of Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada. It feels like the actual home of the Nordic Gods. The rest of his photos are even more stunning. » 11/22/14 1:36am 11/22/14 1:36am

The beautiful and surreal sensuality of Sarah Lee's underwater photos

Sarah Lee is one of the best photographers I've ever found. It's not because of her perfect technique and aesthetics. It's that she has the ability to evoke nostalgia with every shot—even if I have never experienced her scenes in real life, I've lived them in my dreams of eternal summer. She told me this via email: » 11/17/14 9:38pm 11/17/14 9:38pm
