Black and White Photos Wiped into Color

There’s probably no better way to see the power of the colorizing technique than with these animated GIFs from the Dutch design website NSMBL. Taking iconic images from around the web, they’ve overlaid colorized versions of the same image that is slowly revealed with a animated series of wipes. It’s like seeing each photograph wiped into reality.

New York City From A Toddler’s Point of View

You can only see so many postcard-esque shots of Times Square and Rockefeller Center before it feels like you have a good idea about what it’s like to be there. But what do these iconic locations look like from a baby’s perspective? With a Go-Pro behind his son’s back as he strolled through New York City, Ecuadorian photographer Diego Acosta López captured New York from an angle that many have experienced, but few can actually remember. The pictures document little Ignacio’s first trip to NYC to visit his daddy, who is studying at SVA (School of Visual Arts). Aside from serving to remind Ignacio of a trip he will likely forget, the photo shoot also counted towards a final project for one of his dad’s photography classes.

How Do You Do Dinner? Photographer Takes A Peek Into The Dining Styles of New Yorkers

What’s your dinner style like? Do you have dinner at a table with family over laughter and conversation? Do you prefer solo style while catching up on your emails? Do you eat as a family with all eyes glued on a television screen? Japanese photographer Miho Aikawa answers all of these questions by simply photographing people having their typical dinner. In her series “Dinner in NYC”, she offers a glimpse into the private, or sometimes public in a restaurant or airplane or at the desk, eating habits of some selected New Yorkers.

Crazy Cat Lovers: An Inside Peek At The Homes Where Cats Outnumber People

For true cat lovers, one cat is never enough. And for French Canadian photographer Andréanne Lupien, neither are a few. In her Crazy Cat Lovers series, she takes a photo of a cat afficionado in his or her home, then digitally multiplies the cats in the most hilariously ridiculous ways. Cats take over the entire shot and the people appear to love their cat covered lives.

Murray Fredericks Captures the Starry Skies and Vast Landscapes of Greenland

Australian photographer Murray Fredericks isn’t afraid to venture into the vast unknown, often for long periods of time and in challenging environments. In his youth he spent significant time in the Himalayas and the deserts of the Middle East – wilderness that provided him with a basis for his approach as a photographer. In one of his latest series titled Topophilia, he traveled to Greenland six different times with his camping gear, large camera and supplies to access far out places. In this series, he sought to convey “an emotional experience of space.”

Glowing Gotham, Shot from the Open Door of a Helicopter at 7000 Feet

Photographer Vincent Laforet has been on aerial photo shoots above New York City over 50 times in the last 15 years, but this time was “by far the most frightening flight of them all.” Leaving the door open on the helicopter, his team flew to over 7000 ft. above the city – something rarely done at night. From that towering vantage point (above other aircraft, but below where you need an oxygen mask), he captured absolutely stunning images of the much loved city, all lit up.

Concrete Skeletons: Abandoned Hotel Projects of the Sinai Peninsula

Between 2002 and 2005, German photographers Sabine Haubitz and Stefanie Zoche traveled to Egypt’s Sinai peninsula. There, the skeletons of abandoned 5-star hotel projects stand in a stark landscape overlooking the sea. It is a reminder of a time when dreams of holiday relaxation were ripe and speculation was rife. Today, all that remains are crumbling concrete ruins of that dream, and glamourous names like ‘Sindbad’, ‘Sultan’s Palace’, and the ‘Magic Life Imperial’.

This 1.5 Billion Pixel Shot Is The Biggest Picture of Andromeda Ever Taken

In order to display the latest image of Andromeda that the Hubble Space Telescope recently captured, it would take 600 HD television screens! With 1.5 billion pixels, it is the biggest picture of Andromeda, which lies 2.5 million light years from the Earth, ever taken! And even this massive image only shows one third of the entire Andromeda galaxy! The view shows over 100 million of the more than one thousand billion stars in this galaxy.

Two Supermodels Pose Like Living Dolls for Vogue Paris

Just like the Barbie dolls at the toy store, supermodels Magdalena Frackowiak and Elisabeth Erm have been packaged like living dolls for the December/January 2015 issue of Vogue Paris. Italian photographer Giampaolo Sgura is behind the couture series, which sees the models enclosed in tall boxes with clear plastic windows, and surrounded by an array of fashionable accessories twist-tied to the walls.
