Family life

Photographer Danielle Guenther tired of the usual family photo shoot, where all neatly dressed, combed, equally sweetly smiling and sitting awkwardly in the middle of unrealistically beautiful interiors. Once, when a regular photoset turned into a rout and bedlam, Daniel decided it was time to show family life without embellishment, and has posted on his Facebook page a few frames. After that, her parents inundated with requests for them to do the same photo session.

Genius photos

Young Photographer Zev - one of the most talented young photographers of our time. The teenager, born and raised in Massachusetts, shows the skills inherent in adults and held reviewers.

Series of portraits called Little Folk - "Little people" The overall theme of the work - playing with proportions and dimensions. Reducing them and their relatives, Zev takes the viewer on a magical journey, where he rediscovers the world: a blade of grass can be used as an umbrella, and the acorn becomes the best seat.

How to entertain yourself on a train

Irrepressible artist and illustrator October Jones has made the whole internet cry with laughter when he created the project "If dogs wrote SMS". And not so long ago in his tweet he told how creative you can pass the time while you go to work on the train.
On a small piece of paper he draws cartoon head, "puts" them to random passengers and the resulting photographs "collage" The artist manages to pick up not only in color, but the characters and even the clothes of the characters.

People with low vision

Photographer Jamie Beck and Motion designer Kevin Burg used a relatively new kind of visual art, which they also invented. Image - photos and video, but something in between.
Photos on small changes that pay attention to the details of the viewer, and the main frame remains stationary. In a series of pictures "Looking at New York through my glasses" one can see how bright the world becomes, if you have good points.

If you wear glasses, then you know just how accurate these cinemagraphs are.

But, as soon as the focus movies in front of the glasses, the world becomes crisp.

Using these spectacles in a cinemagraph is a brilliant idea.

When out of frame (literally) the world is a blur.

We've never seen NYC like this before.


Mirror remembers everything

"The tragedy of old age is not that a person is aging, and that he remains young soul" Oscar Wilde
That's why every year it becomes harder and harder to look at yourself in the mirror and put up with the way your body changes. As it becomes weak and flabby. And in my heart that you are still young and beautiful, full of energy and life goes on.
Photographer Tom Hussey created from Dallas touched a chord with photo series in which older people look at themselves in the mirror and see the reflection of himself in his youth.
It's very simple and .... fleeting, is not it? Once each of us will feel like a hero of such a series.

Life in Tibet

American photographer Phil Borges tells the story of the indigenous peoples of Tibet.
Phil Borges only photographs of people. But not just any people, but only those whom we, the inhabitants of the cities, do not see. Those that live their own, some very strange life away from our Eurocentric civilization. For almost twenty-five years Phil Borges traveling the world and exploring the culture of peoples who are on the verge of extinction. His photographs we see the inhabitants of the world, against which traditionally use the cliche "the third world", "small people", "dysfunctional - or just emerging - the state."
Almost all the pictures Borges makes up close, which allows for sharpening of all the details of the portrait. In this case, the background remains blurred because, as a rule, substantially removed from the site survey, it offers the opportunity to look at the human figure, which literally blind us to all of the surrounding reality.
"I want the viewer to see in these people personality, knew their names, something of their history, and not just looked at the pictures and see them a member of a small ethnic group or tribe," - says Phil. That's why every picture wizard is provided with a clear comment, telling the life story of imprinted camera man.

Jigme and Sonam 8 years, 18 months. Ladakh, Tibet
Jigme and Sonam - sisters from a family of nomads, who had just come down from the Himalayas in their winter camp, located on the Tibetan plateau at an altitude of 5000 m above sea level. When I showed her picture on Jigme Polaroids, she screamed and ran into the tent. I realized that the first time she saw herself on the side because her family does not have a mirror.

Tibet, people

Kezang lives in a small village 45 km from the Tibet-Nepal border in the "Friendship Highway" between Kathmandu and Lhasa. Very close are the caves where the famous sage Milarepa spent many years of his life in meditation. Shortly after I took this photo well armed Chinese warriors began to scream and tore some of my sheets using a support for Polaroid. Fortunately, the film remained intact.

The world is not without good people

15 photos that will put you faith in humanity.
In this world of wars, protests and political upheaval, it is very important to be a man and be able to help out in difficult times. At times, do a good deed is a snap, but many people just pretend not to notice anything, even though I know that might help. But even the smallest act of kindness would bring more love and joy than all the riches of the world.
Such stories are often behind the scenes and forgotten, however, is that they allow a person to believe in, in the breadth of his heart and soul.
