Landscapes Seen from a Tent

Simply called Morning Views From the Tent, the inspirational travel series was created by photographer Oleg Grigoryev. Each image offers a unique glimpse of the Tajikistan landscape from the eyes of an adventurer traveling through the Fann Mountains. In the compositions, the photographer's legs lead us forward, through the rounded entryway of each tent, and outward towards the stunning scenery. Other tents, supplies, backpacks, and shoes are scattered throughout the foreground which creates a sense of human presence among the breathtaking views. The bright and colorful tents uniquely frame the scenes and invite viewers to be swept away by the photographs as if we, too, are witnessing the dazzling natural beauty in person. Historic Scenes from the Past with the Present PASSE - PRESENT.

Esquire's fashion director Nick Sullivan demonstrates his perfectionistic eye for patterns by overlapping photos taken in the same location, decades apart.

Historic Scenes from the Past with the Present PASSE - PRESENT

In doing so, he merges the past and present into a single frame. While we have seen this enlightening technique before, Sullivan's work stands out because of its exemplary precision and attention to detail. No matter what the locale, the photographer is committed to making sure that his historical images line up perfectly with their present-day counterparts. Throughout the series, there are many familiar streets and landmarks found in London, New York City, and Paris, but the locations aren't the only recognizable subjects. Welcome to the Paris Photo visual glossary of photographic techniques. Light On: Photographer Franck Bohbot captures the fascinating side of cities at night. Franck Bohbot is a French photographer whose latest project Light On captures cities and their storefronts at night.

Light On: Photographer Franck Bohbot captures the fascinating side of cities at night

His work is rooted in his fascination with cinematographic iconography, and his thematics study the relationship between the individual and architecture. While manipulating colour with great precision, Bohbot highlights the soft subtleties of this relationship by playing with melancholic light and chromatics. The long exposures and natural light enable him to capture the essence and the breath of these deserted spaces, carrying the ghostly traces of abandoned social landmarks. As such, Bohbot immortalises everything from swimming pools, basketball courts, libraries, theatres, cinemas, train stations and fairs – a plethora of structures through which he balances the power of architecture with the poetry of everyday spaces. Dad Time: fatherhood - PERE - ENFANCE. Fathers take centre stage in this new personal photography project by Chicago photographer Callie Lipkin.

Dad Time: fatherhood - PERE - ENFANCE

Entitled Dad Time, the series of images shows glimpses into an everyday fatherly world. The moments captured, from banal to fantastical, are easy for anyone to relate to and connect with.

55 incredible examples of photo manipulation. Getty Images best of 2015 [PHOTOS] Female inmates gather with babies as they greet visitors in the Pedrinhas Prison Complex, the largest penitentiary in Maranhao state, on January 27, 2015 in Sao Luis, Brazil. Previously one of the most violent prisons in Brazil, Pedrinhas has seen efforts from a new state administration, new prison officials and judiciary leaders from Maranhao which appear to have quelled some of the unrest within the complex.

In 2013, nearly 60 inmates were killed within the complex, including three who were beheaded during rioting. Much of the violence stemmed from broken cells allowing inmates and gang rivals to mix in the patios and open spaces of the complex. Officials recently repaired and repopulated the cells allowing law enforcement access and decreasing violence among prisoners, according to officials. Other reforms include a policy of custody hearings and real-time camera feeds. Street art - 13 novembre - Paris. Casting Herself i, Photographer by Degas, Picasso, Rembrandt and More. After Vermeer After Magritte Stages is the title of a self-portrait project by American photographer Laura Hofstadter. After experimenting with a large format camera and discovering a thrill in re-creating classical paintings using simple household props, Hofstadter embarked on this photographic narrative to illustrate the varying transformative stages of life that we pass through universally, as well as those of loss and aging.

The project also on a deeper level examines the artist’s own experience battling cancer and the effects the treatment has bestowed upon her body. By personalizing these well-known classical portraits, Hofstadter attempts to breathe new life into these works, and by switching effortlessly between frames she covers some of the most iconic masterpieces in art. Where did the idea to start this project originate? After Degas. Follow these photographers on Instagram to see the Ukraine conflict unfiltered.

Big Ben, London Arc de Triomphe, Paris London-based photographer Rich McCor understands that his city is a magical one, but like all of us, it’s easy to become tone-deaf to the quirks and nuances of a place simply by way of living there for a long period of time. That all changed when he saw Big Ben as no photographer had seen it before, not as a looming landmark but as his own personal wristwatch. Under the Instagram @paperboyo, McCor has reinterpreted the world’s most photographed sites using simple paper cutouts and an ingenious play in perspective.

Where most photographers aim to find the iconic in the everyday, McCor’s whimsical universe does the opposite, and there’s true delight to be found in the metamorphosis of normally sobering sights like Paris’s Arc de Triomphe or St Paul’s Cathedral in London transformed into something delightfully ordinary: a Lego man or an ice cream cone. iPhone Photography Awards Winners Revealed.
