Photographer Captures The Lives Of People Living In Yakutia, One Of The Coldest Regions In Russia

Winter can be quite painful and annoying to many people. At least to the ones living in the places of the world that have cold temperatures and piles of snow.

However, this region in Russia called Yakutia, also known as the Sakha Republic, tops it off with winters that get as cold as -50 degrees Celsius (-58 Fahrenheit). The region is located 5,300 kilometers from Moscow and has almost 1 million residents.

A Yakutian photographer named Aleksey Vasiliev decided to capture the daily lives and struggles of the Yakutian people, showing what living in such a cold region looks like and what people do to pass the time. The photographer told Bored Panda: “In the past, I was an alcoholic. When I stopped drinking, I needed to fill the void that the drink left. Then photography came to me and taught me to see life more positively.”

La-La Land: The Playful Side of Los Angeles in The 1970s and ’80s

Parade staging area, Los Angeles, 1980

American photographer Gary Krueger believes he lived through a ‘golden age’ in 1970s and 80s Los Angeles. A new exhibition pulls together his playful street photography.

Krueger’s curiosity and instincts helped to create a remarkable body of street photography that he describes as ‘split-second juxtapositions in life.’

After graduating high school in 1963, Krueger drove out west to study graphic design and photography at LA’s Chouinard Art Institute from 1964 to 1967. On graduation from Chouinard, Krueger was hired by Walt Disney as a graphic designer. While continuing his association with the Disney Corporation, he pursued photography full-time and had a successful commercial and editorial career as a freelance photographer for the company.

“I shoot only in a horizontal format with a 35mm lens – much like the way we see things in real life. Everything is shot at eye level and they’re all horizontal. I just said to myself, that’s what I’m going to do. None of the photos have been cropped, manipulated, composited or altered. The people pictured in the photos were not contrived, posed or directed.”

Life in the Past Through Stunning Color Photos Captured by Fred Herzog

Reader spruce, 1959.

Fred Herzog was born in Stuttgart, Germany in 1930. Losing both his parents during and after the war, he immigrated to Canada in 1952 and settled in Vancouver the following year.

Herzog studied photography magazines while working for the CPR steamship line and later was employed as a medical photographer. By day he earned his living at UBC, on evenings and in his spare time he walked through Vancouver with his camera, observed and documented the daily life and soul of the city.

My room, Harwood Street, 1958.

Throughout his career, Herzog produced a considerable amount of colour photographs, focusing on urban life, storefronts, second-hand shops, neon signs, billboards, vacant lots, cafes and crowds of people who have populated the streets over the years. Herzog’s use of colour was unusual in the ‘50s and ‘60s, a time when fine art photography was particularly associated with black-and-white imagery.

Two men in fog, 1958.

Furthermore, Herzog was known to photograph almost solely with Kodachrome slide film, which was very much difficult to print. It was not until the mid-seventies that printing technology eventually caught up, allowing him to make archival pigment prints that matched the colour and intensity of the Kodachrome film.

The 1960s were an era of protest. In the civil rights movement blacks and whites protested against the unfair treatment of races. Towards the end of the decade more and more Americans protested against the war in Vietnam. Many people in the United States thought that Americans had no reason to fight in war that was so far away from home.

Incredible Black and White Photos Capture Street Scenes of NYC in the 1950s

However, after peaking in population in 1950, the city began to feel the effects of white flight to the suburbs, a downturn in industry and commerce as businesses left for places where it was cheaper and easier to operate, an increase in crime, and an upturn in its welfare burden, all of which reached a nadir in the city’s fiscal crisis of the 1970s, when it barely avoided defaulting on its obligations and declaring bankruptcy.

Have you ever wondered what life used to be like in New York? These black and white photos were found by EspressoBuzz that give you a glimpse into the life of New Yorkers in the 1950s.

Belfast in Amazing Rare Color Photographs, 1955


Bert Hardy/Picture Post/Hulton Archive/Getty Images

These amazing color photos of Belfast capture the shipyards, the lively streets, the everyday life, the fashion, and document a city worlds away from the one we know today. The pictures were taken by documentary and Press photographer, Bert Hardy, who’s best known for his work in the Picture Post magazine.

There is the romance of long-forgotten times when Belfast trams still ran, and steam trains thundered to Derry, Enniskillen, and Newcastle while the Fintona horse tram was still in operation. There were only 60,000 phones so the telegram, letter, and postcard remained crucial to communication.

There were still 50,000 horses on Ulster farms and they remained a significant element in urban transport and outnumbered the 54,000 cars. In the home, central heating and double glazing were almost unheard of, and very few households possessed a fridge.

Amazing Black and White Photographs Capture Everyday Life in France During the Mid-20th Century

Photographer Janine Niepce (February 12, 1921 – August 5, 2007), one of the first photo-journalists in France, was a distant cousin of Nicéphore Niépce, the inventor of photography.

This Artist Began Drawing These Comics About His Family Every Day During The Lockdown

According to an artist Karl Whiteley: “I was looking forward to going to some job interviews in March. But COVID-19 has hit a pause button on those plans and my social life as well. So I decided to do something for myself, about myself, and my family. It turned out to be a pretty valuable project as a creative professional. For the first time since my studies, I was able to explore my ideas freely.
