A crazy apocalyptic vision of the inversion of Earth's magnetic poles

Most scientists discard the possibility of a massive extinction if Earth's magnetic field reverses its current orientation. That hasn't stopped French artist François Ronsiaux from creating these images of one completely crazy and silly apocalyptic scenario: An increase of the sea level to more than 984 feet (300… » 1/23/15 10:25am 1/23/15 10:25am

These are the most amazing aerial photos of New York ever, period

It's always exciting to receive a message from a master like Vincent Laforet telling you about his new photos. This time he has outdone himself (once again!) so I had to share it right away. Never in my life I've seen New York from this perspective and with this stunning quality—so perfect it feels unreal. » 1/10/15 7:52pm 1/10/15 7:52pm

Hilarious photographs recreate Renaissance paintings with junk food

These pictures by photographer Rebecca Rütten made me laugh so much because she re-created Renaissance-era poses and still life paintings with people today and a whole lot of junk food. It's a wonderful commentary on our culture and is pretty much what the Renaissance would look like, if it happened in 2015. » 1/09/15 12:17am 1/09/15 12:17am

These pictures prove that there's nothing original in the way we dress

Dutch photographer Hans Eijkelboom spend 20 years traveling to megapolis like Paris, New York or Shanghai to document the influence of globalization in the way people dress. His series People of the Twenty-First Century show clear patterns of taste and behavior that repeat across nationalities, races, and cultures. » 12/23/14 8:54am 12/23/14 8:54am

These perfect GIFs seem extracted from an episode of the Twilight Zone

I read this series of animated GIFs by François Sola in two ways. The poetic way, where time stops so we can appreciate the details of a normal day in the subway stations of Lyon, France. And the it-creeps-me-out way, where some people have the power to stop time and move freely while others are completely frozen. » 12/08/14 9:59am 12/08/14 9:59am

The disturbing horror portraits of Danielle Tunstall (NSFW)

Danielle Tunstall told Sploid that she is as a horror photographer who wants to share her psychosis with us. She lives up to her description. Her images are highly stylized, often bloody and always obsessively crafted. Sometimes there is a sexual component, but every time her photos are disturbing. NSFW. » 12/01/14 3:06am 12/01/14 3:06am

These parasite bugs can control their hosts' brains from inside

The November's issue of National Geographic has a fascinating article titled Mindsuckers, the tale of tiny beasts that get into their victims bodies to eat them from inside and control their bodies, turning them into remote controlled zombies. And there are more horror ahead, masterfully photographed by Anand Varma. » 11/26/14 3:08pm 11/26/14 3:08pm

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 11/22/14 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. She told me this via email: » 11/17/14 8:00pm 11/17/14 8:00pm

Photo of New York City before and after cleaning shows how filthy it is

New York is a monumental, awe-inspiring city. Much of its gritty cinematographic character comes from her heavy makeup, layers upon layers of pollution deposited for decades in every nook and crack. Trevor Little's photo of two guys powerwashing a building clearly shows this beautiful old whore's true skin. » 11/10/14 1:48pm 11/10/14 1:48pm
