His photo series, Buildings Made of Sky, flips around photos that he’s taken standing in the middle of New York City streets to reveal an ephemeral skyscraper made from the negative air space formed between all of the tall buildings.

New Sausages Will Make Your Guts Healthier Probiotic foods have been associated with several health benefits, from regulating bowel movements to increasing immunity. Though the claims are sometimes disputed, we've seen a number of "good bacteria" products appear in the last few years, including "functional" yogurts like Activia and more ancient recipes like kimchi and kombucha.
