Cette petite île abandonnée en plein New York ! La nature n'en finira jamais de nous étonner. Cette dernière est imprévisible, et surtout lorsqu'elle se décide à reprendre ses droits sur les installations de l'homme. D’ailleurs, en voici la preuve : deux personnes ont pris le temps d’aller visiter la petite île de North Brother, située entre le Queens et le Bronx, à New York. En 1885, cette même île avait été utilisée pour construire un hôpital, où étaient soignées les personnes touchées par la variole et la fièvre typhoïd. Puis, dans les années 1950, l’hôpital fut reconverti en un centre de désintoxication. L’île fut complètement abandonnée en 1963 : mère nature n’aura pas manqué de reprendre ses droits en 50 ans, et c’est véritablement impressionnant de voir le tableau laissé en 2013. Les deux personnes ayant visité l’île ont pris quelques photos, relayées ici.

Humor Sharing Creative Costumes of Still-Practiced Pagan Rituals of Europe (19 pics) 348K views 225 days ago by Justina Now these are not your average Halloween costumes. For two years, French photographer Charles Fréger has been traveling throughout 19 European countries and trying to capture the spirit of what he calls “tribal Europe” in his “Wilder Mann” series.

Crazy Website Captivating Black And White Photography From French Photographer Benoit Courti French photographer Benoit Courti‘s work has enjoyed a surge of popularity online as more and more people encounter his simple, elegant and striking photographs. Courti‘s photography covers a wide spectrum of subjects, but most of his pictures retain a powerful intimacy with their subjects, especially his portraits. He is the consummate fine arts photographer, seeming to be equally comfortable with both black and white and color, but it is probably his black and white work that captures our attention most. It is gritty, dark, intimate and beautiful. What may frustrate or motivate the amateur photographers among our readers is that Courti only fully embraced professional photography in 2010. Now he has a personal website where he sells his prints. Source: Benoit Courti
