Cédric Delsaux was taking photos in the desolate areas of modern cities like Paris and Dubai, but found there was something missing. So he placed Star Wars characters into his photos and created this amazing set of photos entitled Dark Lens. If you like this series, you can buy the book on Amazon.
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.
This is an unbelievable road journal by Natalie Ratkovski. She is a talented designer and illustrator currently living in Hattingen, Germany. It's truly incredible to see how much work was put into this journal. I love all the different elements that went into it. Normally you would expect a few sketches from a journal but Natalie's includes things that pop out, layered cards/images/mementos from different places she visited, and an especially nice touch in a pocket for her receipt. To truly understand how much time, effort and creativity went into this project, check out her Live Journal post. It is truly one of the most inspiring projects I've seen lately.
Gabriel Moreno is a gifted illustrator, engraver and painter based out of Madrid. His illustrations consist of a collage of elements and make excellent use of very defined lines which he uses to create depth, shading and shadows. The splash of water colors helps to bring an added touch of life to his drawings.
Thomas Birke's urban photography really makes cities come to life. His photos give a preview of what life might be like in the future. To portray this, he takes photos of densly populated areas and tries to show at least 1,000 people and their traces in each picture. By capturing illuminated windows and light streaks of vehicles, you can see the footprint of urban environments. I highly recommend viewing his photos in full resolution to truly get a sense of what he is capturing.
This is an amazing series of lomography photos by Gavin Hammond. It features black and white reflections of London's architecture, landmarks and people. It's definitely a unique and beautiful look at London. As if being a great photographer weren't enough, Hammond also happens to be the songwriter/producer of the electro pop group Sweet Tooth.
