Arthur Tress 1

When it comes to vivid and original nightmares, kids can out dream the rest of us. Their imagination runs rampant – during the day and at night – with little filter to differentiate between reality and fiction. These classic images from photographer Arthur Tress drive that point home. He asked children in the late 60s and early 70s to describe their fantasies and nightmares.

Alexey Titarenko City of Shadows 1

In the aftermath of the Soviet Union’s collapse, people wandered the northern city of St. Petersburg like shadows of their former selves.

He pulled out his camera. [Read more...]

Sandro Giordoan In Extremis

Everyone in Sandro Giordano’s photographs is in the middle of a solid face-plant. But rather than cringe-worthy reality, each is staged and completely hilarious. All the things his subjects were carrying are strewn about; legs and butts are pointed sky high; and in almost every case they’re holding on to one item as if it were their last hope of saving everything.
