rollerderbykisses12

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.

A Selection Of My Favourite Images Found In 2015: 75 Photos By 75 Photographers

75by75600

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.

Booooooom turned 7 this year and it’s actually growing faster now than it ever did! Our Instagram @Booooooom recently broke 100,000 followers (I promise I will try to post more often this next year). Our Twitter and Facebook now have a combined following of over 400,000 and our Google+ now has 6 million followers. We just started a Youtube Channel and we have something really big planned in terms of video content coming really soon. Oh and we’re also launching a photo club, but I’ll tell you more about that later. For now, enjoy these 75 photos by 75 different photographers.
