Hereros by Jim Naughten
Each image, a portrait of Herero tribe members of Namibia,
reveals a material culture that harkens the region’s tumultuous
past: residents wear Victorian era dresses and paramilitary
costume as a direct result and documentation of its early 20th
century German colonization.

Russian photographer Andrew Osokin has done a phenomenal job of capturing such bizarre ice formations, you can explore hundreds more photos over in his LensArt profile.
Infrared Photography by David Keochkerian
These infrared photographs taken by France-based photographer David Keochkerian look like bizarre, saturated landscapes created from a Dr. Seuss illustration. Seasons seem reversed, with white trees appearing in spring, and bushes are transformed into something that looks like fragile blades of bubble gum.
Early Morning Fog by Boguslaw Strempel
Polish photographer Boguslaw Strempel wakes up early in the morning to catch the mist and fog that rise above the mountains and valleys in Poland and the Czech Republic. It appears that he takes long exposures to capture the movement of the clouds and fog, along with the density of the sun’s rays. Although the still images are magnificent in their own right, one can only imagine the extremely gorgeous views Strempel experiences in person as he breathes in the brisk mountain air.

Wanderer/A New Landscape by Valerie Rubinaccio
A reinterpretation of multiple film and digital images Valerie has taken over the past few years.
“It’s a bit like evolution. Nature doesn’t set out to take a specific shape, but instead it adapts to occupy its constraints – expanding along the contours of potential and circumstance. Life sees the negative space as opportunity.”
Madame, Monsiur by Wren Noble
Madame Brunelle and Monsieur Allie met nine years ago when they moved into neighboring rooms at their Assisted Living Residence. They began to dress identically as they went out on their daily walks around the neighborhood. As her memory and his vision fail they grow more and more into a unit, each one making up for the other’s lost faculties. As their heights shrink even their genders become ambiguous under suit jackets and ties. Their brightly colored satin and sequins mute the masculinity of the suits as they decline the roles imposed by gendered couplehood in favor of a merged identity.
From the edge of Finland by Mikko Lagerstedt
Photographer Mikko Lagerstedt first taught himself to use a camera in 2008 and has since fallen in love with the medium, having captured hundreds of dreamlike images of the Finnish landscape he calls home. This latest body of work called Edge was taken exclusively in Finland over the last few weeks and captures perfectly his somewhat unsettling approach to landscape photography that can be equal parts beautiful and just plain eerie, with strange figures lurking just on the horizon. You can follow Mikko’s photography on his blog, viaFacebook and on Behance and prints are available on RedBubble.
People vs. Places
This is a photographic collaboration between photographers Timothy Burkhart and Stephanie Bassos.
This double exposure project allows us to step back from having full control of the image making process and trust in one another while allowing coincidences to happen naturally on film. Stephanie exposes a full roll of 35mm film of only “people,” and Timothy reloads the film again into the same camera, to imprint only “places” and locations to the same roll. These images are all the end result of our ongoing series and are unedited negatives straight from the camera.
