Brothers Use Drone to Reveal Beauty of Ordinary Objects. Brothers JP and Mike Andrews were astonished the first time they sent their drone into the air.
These initial flights revealed a world hidden in the skies, one that turned the seemingly mundane perspective at ground level into a thing of beauty when viewed from above. Inspired by what they saw, the brothers set out to travel the world and “to show how weird and wonderful the world can look from above.” With this, Abstract Aerial Art was born. Their top-down aerial photography is distinguished by clever compositions that are the result of intense research. Almost nothing is left to chance, with the Andrews brothers often using Google Earth and other apps to virtually compose images prior to their arrival.
“Although the images we photograph are often hard to believe and even make some question their authenticity, each and every single one of them is of a real place on our planet,” the photographers tell My Modern Met.

The subreddit r/oddlysatisfying has always had a wholesome mission: it collects small moments of magic in the world – “those little things that are inexplicably satisfying”.
It began in 2013, when people started sharing gifs of high-pressure hoses and industrial pasta cutters on Reddit. Eight years later, it has grown into an entire subsection of the internet: r/oddlysatisfying has 5.6 million members, and there’s a multi-platform “media network” of the same name. It curates content for a combined 3.44 million followers across YouTube and TikTok.
Videos with the hashtag #oddlysatisfying have clocked up 25.9bn views on TikTok alone. The pandemic, coupled with an increasingly chaotic news cycle, has us striving towards the ultimate #smoothbrain state – meaning there’s a global audience regularly seeking out the oddly satisfying, and a huge wave of content creators actively manufacturing it. ‘It can be quite meditative’ This is all deliberate.

The top prize and title of European Wildlife Photographer of the Year went to photographer Jasper Doest of the Netherlands, whose image “The Monkey’s Mask” sits at the intersection of documentary and wildlife photography.

The pervasive beauty of street photography lies in its ability to frame our disregarded surroundings as centre stage during a lively performance.
Everyday passersby become the lead and supporting roles in a relatable screenplay about daily life, freezing interesting candid moments into a set of narrative stills that might have otherwise gone overlooked. For photographer Oli Kellett, this genre is pushed a step further in his series Cross Road Blues, where vibrant pockets of natural light poke through surrounding architecture to spotlight his subjects, as though they are delivering a crucial set of lines during a play. WINNERS—LensCulture Street Photography Awards 2020. This year’s Street Photography Awards took place under unusual circumstances, to say the least.
As a precaution against the Covid-19 pandemic, much of the world went under lockdown, and streets in every corner of the globe were strangely quiet, uninhabited, eerie and uneasy. The usual hustle-bustle of crowds, consumers and commuters came to a halt, and the everyday pleasures of people-watching fell away to what we could view from the windows of our self-isolation or the screens of our phones. Nevertheless, hundreds of photographers from five continents submitted images from their streets, made before and during lockdown.
Great photographs and series from “normal life” just a few months ago now seem charged with new poignancy as they reflect the liveliness and excitement of human interactions before street life stopped for a while.

When Los Angeles-based writer and travel photographer Erin Sullivan found herself stuck inside due to COVID-19 lockdowns, she wanted to find a way to keep her imagination and creative practice alive. Using food and other objects she found around the house, she began creating miniature outdoor scenes featuring toy figurines. Aptly titled Our Great Indoors, her fantastic “nature photography” series allows her 150k+ Instagram followers to still share her love of neverending nature. “When California started going into lockdown mid-March, I began thinking about how I could stay creative and connected to travel/the outdoors while I stayed home,” Sullivan tells My Modern Met.
“I had the idea to create adventure scenes using household objects and ordered a handful of model train figures so that I would have a sense of scale in the images. I kept having ideas for new scenes, so I continued the series.” Here’s a peek into Sullivan’s photoshoots: Erin Sullivan: Website | Instagram | Twitter. 21 Stunning Photos Of Indigenous Tribes From All Over The World.

Desert Topography Gets Warped into a Spiraling Audiovisual Experience. Istanbul-based designers and animators Ouchhh have created a projection-mapped homage to the landscapes of New Mexico, abstracting the dusty hills, canyons, and mountainous scenery into swaths of black and white geometric shapes that rush over the viewer. The piece, called H OM E OMOR PH ISM, is an immersive audiovisual performance mapped against the curved surface of The Digital Dome at the Institute of American Indian Arts in New Mexico.
"Our goal is to re-define New Mexico’s topographic map by projecting abstract visual representations on primitive objects," explains Ouchhh. "The primitive geometric 'cube (in two cubic towers at the top of Visual Arts Center Building), dome (Digital Dome at the Institute of American Indian Arts) and prism (an installation that will be in Centre of Contemporary Art)' will involve a complex morphological and geometrical representation of the information contained in natural images.
