Photographer Sebastian Weiss Uses Instagram To Capture “The Syntax Of Cities”

A smooth granite church in Iceland and a curvy concrete water tower in Germany are among the architectural structures documented in this series by German photographer Sebastian Weiss.

Under the pseudonym Le Blanc, Weiss uses Instagram to capture details of buildings he finds all around Europe. Some are close-up views while others show whole facades, but the aim of every image is to abstract the architecture from its context. The photographer believes his images are representative of a new kind of architectural photography that has emerged because of the popularity of the social media platform. In this essay, he explains why.

“The Agony & The Ecstasy”: Photographer Bob Carlos Clarke Captures Wild Photos Of Young Lovers Getting Off In The 90s

In 1994, love was all around photographer and provocateur Bob Carlos Clarke. So he did what came naturally to him – pulled out his camera and made a comprehensive collection of photos of young lovers getting off with one another.

These images, which will be shown collectively at The Little Black Gallery under the title The Agony & The Ecstasy, were taken in the hormone pressure cooker that is public school balls.

“Carlos Clarke, who was sent to board at Wellington College, saw this orgiastic spectacle as ‘a peculiar side effect of a British public school education’, in which access to the other sex is limited to the point of obsession, if not actual sexual persuasion,” writes Max Houghton in the show’s eponymous book.

Often referred to as the British Helmut Newton, the late Carlos Clarke’s oeuvre is heavily laced with sex, nudity, bondage, and eroticism. But even with the controversial nature of his work, his photos were boundary-less; crossing from fine art to celebrity portraiture, and advertising, and back again, at the click of his shutter.

“Dressed In Light”: Fine Art Photo Series By Dani Olivier

To shoot these stunning nude portraits, Paris-based photographer Dani Olivier dressed his models with nothing but light, using their bodies as a canvas, combined with a series of geometric patterns to celebrate the beauty of the female form.

“Dani Olivier began working with light projections some eight years ago, and he’s been refining the process ever since. He prefers to collaborate with dancers and other women who move to the beat of their own drums, whose bodies can ripple through space alongside the projected motif. These seductive portraits of women are a subtle but lovely reimagination of both the nude as an art form as well as the medium of light.”

Thank You, Photoshop… Russian Wedding Photos Are Bizarre

It’s supposed to be the happiest day of your life, so what better way to celebrate your wedding than by posing as centaurs to demonstrate your love? Or riding a giant swan? Or perhaps fleeing a fire-throwing Transformer?

From the crude, to the rude, to the downright bizarre, this collection of images of provincial Russians getting married show exactly how not to take wedding photographs. Several are carefully choreographed pictures that turn out to be absurd the moment the posing is over, yet they remain in the family albums for posterity.
