Photographer Aleksey Kondratyev captures the sculpture-like figures of ice fishermen in Kazakhstan. Braving -40 degree temperatures, they fashion protective coverings from salvaged pieces of plastic and discarded rice bags. Love this series so much! See more images from “Ice Fishers” below.
Heads up! We’re currently accepting submissions (from photographers only) for takeovers of our @Booooooom Instagram account. Each takeover will be a triptych (3 consecutive photos in our feed), ideally these images relate to each other in some way either visually or conceptually. There will be room to caption each image so you could potentially tell a short story or describe an experience in 3 parts.
If you are interested, leave a comment below with a full link to your Instagram account, the images you’d like to share, and a sentence explaining your triptych.
“Magic” by New York-based Korean photographer Kanghee Kim explores the idea of creating little miracles rather than sitting around waiting for them to happen. Her images are collages of photographs she taken mostly around New York. Have a look at more images from the book below.
Photographer Michael (Mick) Farrell and Cliff Haynes perfected a way of capturing images using a wooden box filled with 32,000 drinking straws. Started in 2007, and undergoing several different versions, the Straw Camera basically works by processing the light collected through each straw (as opposed to a pinhole camera which creates an image from a single point).
Due to the multitude of perspectives the resulting image looks a bit like a pointillist painting made up of many, tiny dots. See more images below or click here to check out the book recently released about the project!
