Kimiko Nishimoto learned how to use a camera for the first time at the age of 71 and even furthered her skills by taking courses on digital editing to manipulate her images. While she mostly focuses on still life and nature photography, she has a series of hilarious self-portraits involving random costumes and staged falls. More images below!
While Los Angeles-based photographer Angie Smith has shot for the likes of The New Yorker and New York Times, her latest project is for Boise, Idaho — specifically, the dozens of refugees who have resettled in the area.
The proposed project, Stronger Shines the Light Inside, is a large-scale, outdoor exhibition of the intimate portraits and life stories she’s documented during her time in Boise. Her hope is that the success of the project will allow her to take on other resettlement cities throughout the U.S. and continue to shed light on inspiring stories of integration. Check out more images and a video clip on the project below!

Check out more images from Valla’s collection, titled “Postcards From Google Earth”, below!
Boston-based photographer Greer Muldowney chronicles the changes to New England’s landscape in light of green energy initiatives.

Some images are so awkward you’d think they were photoshopped. See more from “Urban Turbines” below.
