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.
Zev works with different genres and techniques, but most of all he was fascinated by the creation of self-portraits in the genres of surrealism and magic realism. 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. His self-portraits show that he is essentially still a child, and that makes it even more striking photographer.

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.

Snails are not slow. They just appreciate life.

Photographer Vyacheslav Mishchenko showed that we are almost indistinguishable from the snails. "As a child, my father taught me to collect mushrooms and we are always faced with a variety of insects. As I got older, I grew an interest in photography, and I decided to catch these magical scene on camera". Except for the frame and picture complement good byline. For him snails - akin to people. They also know how to love, to empathize and to fight for their right to live.

The most beautiful tunnels in the world

I want to pass on them or stop gaping.
Nature is beautiful, but there is nothing more magical than being under the trees as a living tunnel. Whether it formed naturally or with a little help of talented gardeners corridor of trees will enchant everyone lucky enough to walk under its green branches.

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.
