Photographer Carolyn Drake


A selection of photos from “Two Rivers” by photographer Carolyn Drake. The series follows the Amu Darya and Syr Darya rivers from their ends points to the source. The distance spans the western edge of China across Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan; a total of 2,500km.

The image above is a crater of fire in Turkmenistan that’s been burning since 1971. Geologists found a cavern of natural gas and tried to burn it off to prevent poisoning anyone. They assumed it would take a few days. Four decades later the flame is still burning, and locals refer to this pit as the Door to Hell.

More images from “Two Rivers” below.

Booooooom Reader Submissions: July


Here’s this month’s submission post, thanks for all the submissions to the June Submissions post. This is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Thanks to everyone for up-voting work you like, it really encourages artists in this community and helps me see what work you like. I encourage you to share your work here because these posts get a lot of traffic and even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen, and definitely sends traffic to your own websites.

Please share your work here during the month of July. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

Submission guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
