From mountaintop monasteries to super-modern temples, these amazing places will make you believe.
Not since the horror of World War II has the planet seen a forced migration the size of the Syrian diaspora that began three years ago when seemingly innocuous government protests escalated into a bloody civil war.
From Polish ancestry, artist Cherie Dacko was born in Chicago but raised in Tampa, Florida. She received her BA at USF and joined an Ybor City artist'...
Richard Phibbs is one of those rare photographers who can capture a wide range of subjects with stunning and fully realized quality.
There are poses beside the limo. In the limo. On top of the limo. There are solo poses. Group poses. Date poses. And then a nice mixture of all the aforementioned. There are poses by ponds with ducks. Poses with duck faces. This picture extravaganza is not just limited to prom night.
I was on my way into the city just to see if I could take a few shots of a Peace And Love Parade. It was a hard shoot.
In the same way we find disturbing - if not outright revolting - a robot or animation that is nearly humanlike but not quite there (the nightmare-inducing baby in Pixar's Tin Toy comes to mind - Google it, if you dare), our reaction to 'impossible' photography oscillates between unease and fascination.
In the fight to figure out how to reduce incidences of cancer, we must not lose sight of people's humanity and their contributions to the world. We must not let cancer steal our headlines.
A photograph of a wax figure sculpted from a painting. That's the idea behind Hiroshi Sugimoto's Portraits, a series of nine-minute-long exposures of wax figures that were modeled from painted portraits.
I sat there alone on the cold ground for the next 15 minutes quietly taking notice of every little thing. It's a memory and image I can still recall with vivid detail to this day. It never got any likes and no one knows what it looked like, but I don't care. I like it better that way.

How do you think he does it? Photo wizard Erik Johansson reveals the secrets behind his mind-bending images, which use retouching to blend real photos into imagined scenes. You'll never look at reality the same way again.
While Avedon's fashion photography is certainly his most celebrated and recognizable work, it is his portraiture that acutely reveals the psychological complexities of both the subject and the artist.
Labels are essential to conversation, as are boxes, but I stand by my point, which is that it's not that there are too many boxes in the world, it's that there are too few. Each one of us is in hundreds of boxes, like watercolors, splish-splashing elements of ourselves over into the others, and in my view, when colors bleed into each other, we get the most beautiful rainbows.
What seemed to me to be her most subversive and, to that audience, surprising message, was that there is far more bisexuality out there than what we'd consider purely "gay." Given that even the gay community finds that reality surprising, wondering where all the bisexual men and women are, it's one of what Wright calls her "self-evident truths," that we are far more complex than even we are willing to admit.
