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

Chasing Horizons

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” [Read more...]

Sharon Avraham is one of the most dynamic emerging photographers in Israel today. A co-founder of Midburn, the Burning Man regional event in Israel, his love for art and community have run deep for some time. Based in beautiful Ein Vered, a little north of Tel Aviv, he runs an artistic intentional community called “David Ranch.” The ranch supports artists from around the world who come to grow their craft surrounded by gardens and horses.

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 [Read more...]

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. [Read more...]

Her collection of images and the book she recently published are titled Soviet Ghosts. [Read more...]

Michael Wolf Paris Roof Tops 1

This Photographer Did a Cliché Baby Photo Shoot with a Dog

Jamie Clauss Dog Baby Pictures 10

Baby photography is one of those things that has quickly turned into a gigantic cliché. Do a little snuggle, snap some picture of tiny feet, wrap them in a blanket – don’t forget the soft lighting. That’s why this series by photographer Jamie Clauss is so awesome. She and her next door neighbors Jan and Chase Renegar were having a boring day, so to liven things up they created a newborn photo shoot using their Jack Russell terrier. Her name? Snuggles.

Dutch photojournalist Marieke van der Velden has been taking photos of swimming pools in each country she has traveled to since 2009. Her work for NGOs has taken her to Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and beyond. Much of her organization-based work can be draining and emotional due to the subject matter she is photographing. Visiting swimming pools can give her a bit of refuge. ‘They have a quiet, positive atmosphere. They give me a rest from the reportages‘ she tells the Guardian. [Read more...]
