Creative community Wandering Bears are taking up residence at The Photographers’ Gallery next week. During the three-day, interactive exhibition audiences will be invited to recreate the work of the 14 artists on display and photograph their re-interpretations using their mobile phones. The collection of unique interpretations will then be printed out and made into an individualized sticker album.
“Inside Out Upside Down” launches November 11th (although you need to RSVP before November 10th). Click here for more information and check out an example video below!
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.

A selection of images from Vancouver-based photographer James Nizam’s latest exhibition. In “Ascensions of Time” Nizam continues to explore the passage of time through long exposures. Light sources are redirected and manipulated into precise shapes, made visible through the photographic process. Click here for previous posts. More images 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.
American photographer Shane Lavalette’s new book is an extension of a series he did for a 2012 exhibition called “Picturing the South.” Drawing on the rich history of blues and gospel music, the book also includes text by artist and poet Tim Davis.
