Insightful Photos Reveal How Differently People Live in Identical Apartments. Romanian photographer Bogdan Grbovan seeks inspiration that literally hits close to home.
He currently lives on the 10th floor of a Bucharest apartment building, which was built in 1966 during communist times. To create widespread equality, many of these plain lodgings were constructed with identical apartments to prevent any individualistic forms of expression. In an e-mail, Grbovan describes them to us as “mere boxes” that don't allow for social, cultural, or communicational happenings. Residents can only fulfill their basic needs in these single-room spaces that, according to the artist, “have absolutely no sense of beauty.”
After looking around at his own apartment, the photographer wondered how those living below him inhabited their nine identical places.

Breathtaking Photos of Farmers Harvesting Lilies from the Mekong Delta. Each autumn, Vietnam's Mekong Delta is filled with beautiful, long-stemmed lilies that are the result of flooding that nourishes the waterway.
From early-September to mid-November, farmers in the Long An province spend their days harvesting these delicate flowers. It's an incredible spectacle to see and, luckily, photographer Trung Huy Pham used his skill to capture stunning aerial photographs of the scene. Braving intense heat and high waters, Pham came away with a beautiful array of images. In many, the dark waters offer a pleasing contrast to the colorful blossoms and the traditional conical hats worn by the farmers. The majority of the lilies are a deep pink hue or white. Though the water lily harvest draws many travelers and photographers who delight in taking in the scene, the harvest is all in a day's work for these farmers.
Pham hopes that his photographs will bring new appreciation to this rich tradition and show people the beauty of hard work. Related Articles: Photographic Stories of Aging and Loss in Siberia by Oded Wagenstein. A young Nenets woman gathers the reindeer before migration.

" Experiencing Russia is like experiencing magical realism—to the observer, everything seems as real as real can be, and at the same time, something's a bit odd, out of place, or straight up bizarre. Russia holds so many contrasting, vivid lives in it that it's no wonder why actually seeing them is so mesmerizing.
