Photographer of the Year, 2nd Place: Dan Liu, China

Out of submissions from thousands of photographers from all over the world, the Grand Prize Winner and Photographer of the Year Award goes to photojournalist Istvan Kerekes of Hungary for his image, Transylvanian Shepherds.

Amazing Photos of the Third Generation of the Ford Thunderbird, 1961-1963

The third generation of the Ford Thunderbird is a personal luxury car produced by Ford for the 1961 to 1963 model years. It featured new and much sleeker styling (done by Bill Boyer) than the second generation models. Sales were strong, if not quite up to record-breaking 1960, at 73,051 including 10,516 convertibles.

h/t: vintag.es

A new, larger 390 cu in (6.4 L) FE-series V8 was the only engine available (in 1961). The Thunderbird was 1961’s Indianapolis 500 pace car, and featured prominently in US President John F. Kennedy’s inaugural parade, probably aided by the appointment of Ford executive Robert McNamara as Secretary of Defense. It shared some styling cues with the much smaller European Ford Corsair.

It was replaced by the 4th generation Thunderbird for model year 1964. Here is a set of amazing photos of the third generation of the Ford Thunderbird (1961-1963).

The Art of Japanese Portrait Photography by Kishin Shinoyama

Japanese photographer Kishin Shinoyama has dedicated his practice to exploring intimacy and the human body, as well as documenting his home place of Tokyo. His sensual photographs often depict the body within the architecture of the city or conversely, the inherent sculptural qualities of the naked human form. Shinoyama was born in 1940, in Tokyo, Japan. He studied in the Department of Photography at Nippon University and was awarded the Advertising Photographer’s Association prize. After being employed at the Light Publicity advertising company, he started to work as an independent photographer in 1968.

Kishin Shinoyama’s work has long captured the changing urban landscape of Tokyo; its politics, culture, and society. His ‘shino-rama’ images of the 1980s capture the extensive commercial developments and excessive consumer lifestyles of the era by utilizing multiple cameras to produce vast panoramas.

Shinoyama’s early nudes from the sixties and seventies, often shot in black and white, framed bodies as expressive objects in the natural environment; living sculptures of flesh and bone. More recently, the pictures he terms ‘Gekisha’ stage young and amateur female models, usually naked, amongst the neon lights and concrete structures of the city. A recent nude photo shoot in a cemetery sparked controversy which the artist has not shied away from. Shinoyama documented the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami that struck the east coast of Japan in March, 2011, adding another layer of texture to his vision of Japan.

In addition to the diverse landscapes of his country, Shinoyama is also acclaimed for his portraits of celebrities such as John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Rie Miyazawa, and other famous personalities. In 1980 Yoko Ono asked Shinoyama to shoot the artwork for her and John Lennon’s collaborative album Double Fantasy.

これは怖いもの知らずなのか、それとも勇敢な行為なのか?自分よりも強い相手にちょっかいを出す動物たち(爬虫類出演中)

bravefoolish6_640
 自分より身体の大きい相手、数の多い相手にも、ときには立ち向かっていかなければならないこともある。勇気ひとつを友だちにして…。

 とはいうものの、あまりにも無謀なシチュエーションでは単なる自殺行為になっちゃうケースもあるわけなので、相手を見極める眼を持つことも大切なんじゃないかと思うんだ。

人間はなぜ尻尾を失ったのか?遺伝子の突然変異だった可能性

monkey-4427819_640


 動物界では、尾というものは標準装備で、その存在にはもっともな理由がある。魚にとっては推進力になり、ウシにとってはハエたたき代わりになり、ワニは尾に脂肪を蓄えている。サルは尻尾でバランスをとり、物をつかんだりさえする。

 人間も、実は胎児の頃には尻尾があり、この世に生まれ落ちる頃にはそれが衰退して椎骨と融合し消えてしまう。尾てい骨として知られている尾骨が尾の名残だ。

 ではなぜ人間は尻尾を持たなくなったのだろうか?その理由がわかるかもしれない遺伝子が特定された。どうやら突然変異による可能性があるという。 続きを読む

“Annihilation of Humanity”: The Superb Metal Bands Logo Design by Irina Voland

Do you like heavy metal as much as I do? If your answer is yes, then you’ll be impressed with these beautiful logos created by Irina Voland. Exellent lettering!

According to an artist: “My friends used to call me ‘Mods’. Prefix ‘Mod-‘ stuck to me because I like to modify, customize everything. The other bit is because the Moon is the black soul of night, i enjoy silence and stillness of the night. The Moon is near the Earth, but still far away – I can relate to that.”

More: Irina Voland, Instagram, Facebook

“I’ve always been looking for something special – dark, mystic, melancholic, even before I’ve got into art and subcultures. So i’ve decided to do my own thing, that connects my passion for music with drawing as my job.

I’m into graphic arts since 2004, after i quit working with PC hardware in my youth. Earlier years I used to work with german, swedish, british and american studios to get expericence and reliable name, very few of them were about dark design, most jobs were fashion and entertainment related. Though i don’t regret doing it because it gave me the experience i needed. Nowdays i prefer to have more freedom rather than being tied up with contracts. I manually draw lettering art like name tattoos, band or artist logos, personal emblems and monograms.

I want to make artworks more interesting, not like soulless “neutral style” corporate designs. I prefer more artistic, atmospheric designs. I like giving soul to my lettering art, making it speak, tell a story maybe.”

“Music is my passion, basically avantgarde and progressive Black Metal, Doom, Dark Ambient, Prog/Alternative Rock. The older i become the more genres i embrace, i catch myself listening to lots of Blues Rock and Darkjazz lately. My favourite bands are Anathema, Agrypnie, Paradise Lost, VAST, Nocte Obducta, Khold, Diary of Dreams, Behemoth, Nyktalgia, Satyricon, Desiderii Marginis, Hypnogaja, Black Lab, Anorexia Nervosa, Nortt, Antimatter, Godsmack, Shinedown, Five Finger Death Punch. Music and Art is my lifestyle, the blood in my veins, the air i breathe.”

クモ恐怖症を克服したい?蜘蛛に慣れるための拡張現実アプリが開発される

蜘蛛恐怖症克服用の拡張現実アプリが開発される
 様々な恐怖症があるが、クモ恐怖症(アラクノフォビア)は世界的に見ても上位で、蜘蛛に異常な恐怖感を抱く人は多い。

 苦手というレベルならまだ日常生活を営めるが、クモ恐怖症を持つ人は、蜘蛛がいそうな場所、蜘蛛の巣を見ただけで落ち着かなくなる。本体を見るとそのパニックになり、周囲に近づけなくなる。

 多くの蜘蛛はダニやノミなどの害虫を食べてくれるいわば益虫だ。せめて家の中にいる小さなクモくらい冷静に対処できる程には慣れておいた方がいいだろう。

 そこで開発されたのが『Phobys』という拡張現実アプリだ。まずはヴァーチャルの蜘蛛に慣れることで、恐怖をやわらげようというのだ。 続きを読む
