Riikka Hyvönen taps into an unexpected kind of beauty in the athletes who send her shots of the bruises (or “kisses” in roller derby terms) they wear like badges of honour, turning these photographs into large-scale sculptural paintings. See more of Hyvönen’s work below.
In honour of Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally arriving in theatres, here is the work of Thomas Dagg, whose digitally manipulated photo series perfectly captures what every Star Wars fan must have been experiencing for the last month or two; little glimpses of Star Wars every where they look. More images below.
2016 is just around the corner so, in keeping with tradition, here’s a selection of my favourite photos from the past 365 days in one giant post (you can see previous year-end posts here: 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009). I wanna clarify that not all of these images were shot this year (many of them were), this is merely a collection of images from posts published in the past 12 months.
Thank you to all of you readers! Thank you sharing your work in our monthly reader submission posts, and for leaving so many encouraging messages to the various people whose work is featured here.
