National Geographic is currently holding its annual photo contest , with the deadline for submissions coming up on November 30.
Intriguing new photos have just surfaced on photographer Hedi Slimane’s diary of the one and only Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of the late Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love.
Illustrations by French artist Villemard in 1910 of how he imagined the future to be in the year 2000. In the 21st century, in order to control traffic jams in the air, there will be more and more flying policemen. Firemen will be equipped with “bat wings” to be able to easily access top floors and roofs.
These dream-like installations are assembled, and then photographed by Norwegian artist Rune Guneriussen. Just imagine being out for a walk in Norway’s countryside, turning a corner and discovering a magical forest of lamps, a tangle of chairs, or a river of books. Sadly, once the photograph is taken, Rune removes the installation, the only proof of it’s existence being these images… sort of like waking up from an amazing dream that you could have sworn was real. As an artist, I believe strongly that art itself should be questioning and bewildering as opposed to patronising and restricting. As opposed to the current fashion I do not want to dictate a way to the understanding of my art, but rather indicate a path to understanding a story. Rune Guneriussen’s site
The next time you stroll through an art gallery and think that some of the paintings look real enough to come to life right before your eyes, you might be on to something.

Taking pictures in black & white format is not easy, in-fact, it’s considered to be the purist form of photography because you have to rely heavily on composition and form than with color shots. These pictures (in our opinion) are truly great examples of black and white photography and we hope you like these.
