Cristobal Garciaferro Rubio is an architect by trade, but he is also an fantastic photographer. Here are just a few of his majestic landscape photos. I am especially fond of the shots of the smoking volcanoes!
Juan Todrigo Legua's sunset photos are so breathtaking, they seem almost unreal. The bright shades of orange, yellow and red, along with the beautiful reflections, really bring his photos to life. Looking at these makes me want to retire and just take photos of the sunrise/sunset.
Liu Jianan's photos tell masterful stories of beautiful women engaged in battle, exorcising demons and creating living human statues among others. Each one pulls you further into the story, and makes you wonder what the whole story really is. If anyone has further information on these fantastic shots, please share them in the comments!
Manuel Cafini has capturesd some captivating portraits of people in motion. Cafini's subjects are dressed in bright colors and staged in front of a dark background creating strong and rich contrast. This, coupled with the movement of his subjects, creates interesting shapes and beautiful lines in his photos.
Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner, with the help of Red Bull Stratos, will soon try and break the world record for highest sky dive. He will attempt a 23 mile free fall from a pressurized capsule while wearing only a spacuit. In doing so, he will become the first person to break the sound barrier in free fall and will risk having the water in his body vaporize! No one knows what will happen, but people are sure to find out.
I'm pretty sure this is what people think of when they hear the words island pardise. The Reethi Rah Resort is on one of the largest islands in North Male’ Atoll in the Maldives. The resort has 130 villas each with an ocean view and direct access to the lagoon. I think I've found a new dream vacation destination.
You know you are an icon when people everywhere know you by your first name. That is most definitely the case with Madonna. I wasn't old enough to appreciate Madonna when she was in her prime as the Queen of Pop, but most definitely am now. Here are some beautiful photos to celebrate.
Bodyscapes was Jean-Paul Bourdier's first book that "contained vibrant creative artwork with painted bodies moving through some of the most diverse landscapes on earth." All of his photos are staged and shot in analog. The flying bodies, cliff paintings and landscapes are all shot without the use of digital technology.
You can help him fund his second book Leap into the Blue on Kickstarter. It will dive deeper into "our beingness, creating 'fantastic' interventions within the landscape that challenge viewers to question the lines we draw between mind and body; human and nature; figure and landscape; dream and reality." Or you can buy Bodyscapes on Amazon.
