We previously featured his brilliant series involving real places made to look like miniatures, this time around he has recreated small objects as extremely large sculptures but photographed them to appear normal sized. Confused? See more images and video from “Doll,” as well as shots from Hunter’s other series, “Fly,” below. Read More

Photographer Camilo José Vergara has committed more than four decades of his life to his photographic archive project “Tracking Time”. Year after year he has returned to poor, minority communities around the United States to re-photograph them from the same vantage points. In 2013, Vergara was awarded the National Humanities Medal by President Barack Obama, and was the first photographer ever to receive this honour.

Our talented friend photographer Gordon Nicholas sent over some fantastic portraits of the Zenga Bros captured during production of their new series for Red Bull, “Tall Bikes Will Save The World”. The 6-part video series explores the daring, creative, and foolish world of tall bikes, captured in the signature pulse-pounding Zenga style.
There’s an infectious creative energy in everything these guys make. If you remember the “Skate Heads” film we made with them (which was awarded Vimeo’s Best of the Year) I don’t need to convince you to watch. Head over HERE to watch all six videos.
