The photographer has recently been capturing the view above in tiny courtyards around Germany, Belgium and France, and then using the building framed sky as the canvas for his whimsically hemmed in characters.

Peter Macdiarmid WWI Juxtaposed with Today 1

With this year marking 100 years since the start of the First World War, it becomes more and more difficult to remember the world changing conflict. The last veteran of “The Great War,” Florence Green, passed away in 2012, leaving few people to share the stories of that bloody time or remind us of the world as it was… but we still have the pictures. Photographer Peter Macdiarmid revisited the locations of World War I-era images and recaptured the places as they appear today. These old photographs overlaid on their modern day counterparts reveal how much those locations have changed, or how much they’ve stayed the same. [Read more…]

Albania: A Bunker for Every 4 People

Tuesday 02.05.2013 , Posted by

From the series "Concresco" by David Galjaard

Although it was chosen as the No.1 Destination in Lonely Planet’s list of ten top countries to visit for 2011, Albania is still a country unexplored and unknown to most. The small coastal nation, wedged between Montenegro, Kosovo, Macedonia and Greece, was once home to a long-running government overseen by Stalinist dictator Enver Hoxha. When Dutch photographer David Galjaard recently visited the country, he created Concresco, a series based on one of the lasting reminders of that regime – over 750,000 cement bunkers. [Read more…]

Vaults: Mesmerizing Patterns on Cathedral Ceilings

Tuesday 04.10.2012 , Posted by

The next time you find yourself in a Romanesque or Gothic european church, cathedral or basilica, lay down on the floor and cast your eyes up to the mesmerizing ceiling. Built between the 12th and 16th centuries, it’s hard to believe the level of detail and variation in these marvels of architecture from over half a millennia ago. The designs, full of intricately repeating ribbed diamonds and triangles, look like kaleidoscopic designs carved from stone… actually, that’s not far from the truth. [Read more…]

The Bold Art of the European Tour Bus

Tuesday 01.31.2012 , Posted by

Often looking like a mix between color field paintings and some pretty rad late 80s skater art, the sides of european tour busses are a vastly under-appreciated art form. Photographer Taylor Holland has been working to change that, capturing the rolling canvas’ during his Paris bicycle commute in ways that put the art clearly and boldly in our focus. His shots crop out the main mechanics of the busses, leaving little but colorful hubcaps and vents to clue us into the origin of the striking graphics. What is left are bright patterns worthy of far more than the passing glances that they get rolling the streets… and that was just his intention. [Read more…]
