The collection of unique interpretations will then be printed out and made into an individualized sticker album.

A beautiful series of photographs featuring the street vendors of Hanoi by photographer Loes Heerink. In order to get the desired shots (all captured from above) Heerink got up at 4am and positioned herself atop various bridges throughout the city, sometimes waiting for hours for vendors to pass by. By the looks of Heerink’s Kickstarter the project will soon be expanded into a book! See more portraits below.

In “Skin Deep” photographer Steven Burton digitally removes the tattoos of ex-gang members, creating dramatic before-and-after style portraits that offer many subjects a glimpse of themselves they haven’t seen for decades. Not only do the images elicit strong emotional responses and personal reflections, the transformative series raises broader questions about social stigma and how we perceive others.

Burton has launched a Kickstarter to turn the photographs into a book. Check out more incredible portraits below.
