Es ver a Grisson ahí, disparando su réflex último modelo sobre los cadáveres, y automáticamente quieres ser fotógrafo. ¡Qué clase! Los responsables del Museo d’Orsay deben de saberlo y por eso tienen en cartel una exposición sobre escenas del crimen. La exposición recopila documentos como el retrato policial de 1919 del criminal Désiré Landru, conocido como 'barba azul de Gambais' La mayoría de las obras expuestas son cuadros más o menos dramáticos, pero también han colgado fotografías tan escalofriantes como la del señor Canon, un muerto de 1914. Foto del señor Canon. Cuando en una foto sale un muerto o una persona que se está muriendo, uno se siente mal si considera los detalles estéticos de la imagen. Una de las fotos de Enrique Metinides. Para responder he rescatado una de las fotos más escalofriantes y bellas que he visto en mi vida.

About — Anthem Photography Hi, my name is Maria. I find life to be full of colorful, joyous, and spontaneous moments that make every day a series of moments full of beauty and worthy of awe. Shortly after high school I discovered that my camera became my greatest companion in capturing such moments. What began as a hobby quickly became a passion, and has led me to a successful career as photographer that I count myself blessed to enjoy. I currently live in Portland, Oregon and despite the unpredictable weather, I love all that comes with the Northwest and I have no intention of leaving anytime soon. I feel extremely privileged to be a part of such special moments in others' lives. {Random Facts} Children make my heart smile.

Co.Design: business + innovation + design 30 Death-Defying Photos That Will Make Your Heart Skip A Beat If looking down from the edge of a cliff or a tall office building gives you a little thrill in the depths of your tummy, then here’s a post that will tie your tummy into knots! We’ve found 30 of the most death-defying photos out there that will test even our most hardened readers. Having a “head for heights” is great if you’re a thrill seeker or someone who has to work at high altitudes, and some people consider their tolerance for heights to be a source of pride, but many scientists consider the fear of heights to be an advantageous trait. The famous “visual cliff” experiment proved that even year-old infants have depth perception and are less likely to approach their mother if they have to cross a glass-covered chasm that may look like a cliff edge to them.

Young girl who’s best friends with African wildlife Born in Africa to French wildlife photographer parents, Tippi Degré had a most unusual childhood. The young girl grew up in the African desert and developed an uncommon bond with many untamed animals including a 28-year old African elephant named Abu, a leopard nicknamed J&B, lion cubs, giraffes, an Ostrich, a mongoose, crocodiles, a baby zebra, a cheetah, giant bullfrogs, and even a snake. Africa was her home for many years and Tippi became friends with the ferocious animals and tribespeople of Namibia. As a young child, the French girl said, “I don’t have friends here. Because I never see children. Parents Alain Degré and Sylvie Robert documented Tippi’s life and relationships with the African wildlife and transformed those moments into captivating books and movies. Looking past some fairly obvious and natural parental worries, Tippi had the most amazing upbringing.

About the author Hi, my name is Houke de Kwant. : Irina Werning - Photographer Iain Macarthur Artist Bio Born in 1986 in Swindon, England. Became a fanatic of art at the age of eight in which I was introduced to art through watching a lot of cartoon shows and comic books. First ever comic I looked at was the Batman series. Since then I’ve been obsessed with drawing odd fantasy drawings and anime characters. When I got older I diverted from anime drawings to realistic figures and faces, always striving to make them more detailed and photorealistic. I’ve looked at a lot of artists and illustrators throughout the years, all with different styles and different medias. In 2008, I graduated from Swindon college in HND illustration and hopefully will progress in studying in BA illustration somtime in the future. My work is described as surreal and unique in its own way. Iain Macarthur’s Blog Iain Macarthur on Behance Iain Macarthur on Carbonmade
