Giganto is a hyper dimensional photography intervention project that uses the urban scene and the city’s architecture as a platform for photographic exhibition. Creating an odd dialog with the environment, they generated a reflection about the life in the city and its scary structures.

"Revered for his stunning liquid photography, New York based photographer Shinichi Maruyama has shifted his lens from fluids to a new subject: the human body. In his new Nude series, the notion of the traditional nude image is re-imagined, capturing instead the ethereal appearance of the human body in motion. That is to say that these photographs are not so much about the naked body, but about its capacity to glide elegantly through time and space.”

The Weird World of Stock Photography Is Even More Awkward in Person

In The World’s Most Downloaded Man, a tongue-in-cheek promotional film for a Brazilian photo studio, a photographer tracks down the most ubiquitous male model in stock photography. Why? Because he’s perplexed to see the cheap, generic images competing with his own high-quality work. Fernando Martins of  Câmera Clara Photography Studio travels all the way from Brazil to Denmark to meet Jesper Bruun, who is a real model, in fact. Sure enough, awkwardness ensues.

See Potential is a partnership between photographer Emily Schiffer (and her photographer collaborators) and founder of the Center for Urban Transformation (CUT), Orrin Williams, with the aim of raising awareness and community-building on the South Side of Chicago. Through photography installations, “GPS petitioning” and new initiatives, they hope to “use public art as a platform to transform urban blight into community engagement.”

"In the South Side of Chicago, a lack of access to affordable, healthy foods is holding a community captive to circumstance. With the tools available to us today, urban decay is an opportunity for self-sufficiency to blossom. We (the community) can create self-sustaining, hyperlocal systems to cultivate well-being in systemically neglected communities."

"Jeff Dunn believes he can double the $1 billion baby-carrot business — and promote healthy eating — by marketing the vegetable like Doritos. Here, we reimagine some of the most popular snack foods."

Mathieu Young's Cambodia by Moonlight:

"The MOONLIGHT, a solar powered lantern, is built and was designed in collaboration with the rural Cambodians it is made to serve. Over 70% of the country has no access to the power grid, so as a result they have traditionally relied on kerosene lamps after dark for tasks like cooking, eating and reading. Those lamps pose a great fire risk, as most rural homes are built from wood and straw. The MOONLIGHT can be rented in rural areas for less than $.08/day, the same amount traditionally spent on kerosene. These photos were taken in villages around Kandal Province, near the Mekong River, the first area to adapt the MOONLIGHT for everyday use."

Here’s a captivating image from our latest magazine effort, The Data Issue. Photographer D. Bryon Darby captures moments in suburban life and then tries to compress them into a single frame. This photo is titled Seventy Flights in Ninety Minutes, and it was taken from the top of Hayden Butte in Tempe, Arizona, as planes took off into the sky over for over an hour and a half.
