Crystalline Patterns in Frozen Soap Bubbles

Who knew that blowing bubbles in sub-zero temperatures could create such beautiful crystalline patterns? Apparently photographer Cheryl Johnson did. She went out on cold days to capture the many possible ways each bubble would form its incredible display. Created by the water in between the soapy film layers, the freezing begins at the bottom and expands upwards until the bubble in entirely covered.

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.”

One Photographer’s Journey to Document the Human Struggle with Water

The UN has warned that by the year 2025, 3.4 billion people will face water scarcity. Photographer Mustafah Abdulaziz took on a mission to document the human relationship to this precious resource. He was commissioned by the United Nations and WaterAid to visit some 32 countries, observing the conditions in which people go to retrieve water and learning about the challenges first hand.

Concealed: Images of Texas Women with Their Guns

Loaded handguns can go off accidentally. When in a bag, they can rub against other objects which may deactivate the safety and even fire a bullet. In Houston, Texas a few years back, that exact scenario occurred at a women’s hair salon when a patrons gun went off in her purse.

Photographer Circles Globe to Capture Sunsets in Every Time Zone, In Just 8 Hours

Simon Roberts got to do something no photographer has done before – capture a sunset in every time zone around the world, in just one day.

The challenging project was launched to promote the Satellite Wave watch from Citizen, which automatically adjusts to the local time zone (something quite unique for a wristwatch). Their project took Roberts far north to 80 degrees latitude – close enough to the earth’s axis that the plane could keep up with the setting sun. At that position, they were able to fly against the earth’s rotation (it’s moving at just 180 mph that far north) enabling the plane to stay positioned in a permanent sunset as they traveled around the globe. (You’re nearly doing the same thing when you take a northern flight from east to west. Notice how LOOOONG the sun takes to set as you chase it.)

At precisely 6:30 PM in every time zone, Roberts photographed a sunset. The final video is called “Chasing Horizons”

Burlesque Performers, Before and After Transforming Into Character

In its essence, burlesque is an exaggeration of society’s beauty standards to an extreme degree, a confrontation with preconceived assumptions about sensuality, power and gender. Still, it’s surprising to witness the incredible transformation these performers go through in each of these before and after photographs. Fashion photographer Sean Scheidt created the series ‘Burlesque’ as a personal project

Umbrellas for Miles: Aerial Views of a Colorful Italian Beach Town

German photographer Bernhard Lang went on a pleasant holiday to the seaside resort town of Adria, Italy – a place that is absolutely covered with umbrellas. Located between the coastlines of Ravenna and Rimini on the Adriatic coast, each hotel has its own umbrella design, creating a sea of color that extends for miles. This inspired a photographic project for Lang, who decided that on his next trip he would arrange a plane and shoot the scene from the air. That happened last month, and the photos are fantastic. It almost seems like a beachside Candy Land of sorts.
