Mt. Asgard looks like the actual home of the Viking gods

Artur Stanisz takes perfect photos of landscapes. So perfect, in fact, that sometimes they seem unreal. Like this image of Mount Asgard, a strange double-peak on the Cumberland Peninsula of Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada. It feels like the actual home of the Nordic Gods. The rest of his photos are even more stunning. » 11/22/14 12:11am Saturday 12:11am

The beautiful and surreal sensuality of Sarah Lee's underwater photos

Sarah Lee is one of the best photographers I've ever found. It's not because of her perfect technique and aesthetics. It's that she has the ability to evoke nostalgia with every shot—even if I have never experienced her scenes in real life, I've lived them in my dreams of eternal summer.

These photos are so incredibly perfect that I can't believe they're real

This image is so impossibly flawless in every aspect that is hard to believe it is real.

His other work is equally perfect and stunning to the point of disbelief. » 10/22/14 10:54am 10/22/14 10:54am

Portraits of abandoned dogs before being put down at a shelter

Taiwanese photographer Yun-Fei Tou created these portraits of abandoned dogs minutes before being euthanized to "arouse people's awareness of animals rights." What really fucks me up is to look into their eyes knowing they didn't know what was coming up next. A stark reminder of our responsibility towards these beings. » 10/21/14 4:49pm 10/21/14 4:49pm

The best flying experience ever perfectly recreated in cool new photos

Michael Kelley is a Los Angeles-based architectural photographer and aviation lover who often catches himself "at 2am looking up articles on aviation" (I know that feeling.) So when the opportunity came to recreate the famous Pan Am way-of-fly using a vintage 747, he jumped right in. His new photos are perfect. » 10/02/14 1:35pm 10/02/14 1:35pm

Recreating famous portraits with John Malkovich is the best art

All art can stop being made because this is it. This is the best. Photographer Sandro Miller and John Malkovich teamed up to recreate famous portraits from history in their photo series Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters and it's absolutely perfect. And hilarious. And the best. » 9/23/14 11:06pm 9/23/14 11:06pm
