In the series Time Slice, photographer Richard Silver documents the appearance of iconic tourist spots as it changes from day to night. He shot over 36 photos throughout the day and combined them all into one image. Some of the sights he’s covered are the Roman Collosseum in Italy, Hagia Sophia in Turkey, and Birds Nest in China.

Here are some fun behind-the-scenes of the 1968 science fiction film Barbarella. I’m primarily posting these images because of the amazing costumes and because everyone is just so gosh darned gorgeous. Talk about intergalactic glamor. How could it ever be topped? Sci-fi babes and boys at their finest.

We’re absolutely loving the bizarre mashed-up world of Ffo, who uses anatomical cutouts in conjuction with traditional pinup imagery to create an off-kilter world of erotic scientifics. A master of collage, Ffo revamps the romantic aesthetic of the fifties bombshell, making it grotesque and fresh.

One of the very best things about Burning Man, the week-long, post-apocalyptic celebration of creative expression that pops up in the Nevada desert each August, is the awe-inspiring collection of art on display. The installations and the “art cars” roaming through the two-mile stretch of temporary city render humanity’s capacity for imagination limitless. Where else in the universe would a giant, fire-breathing steampunk octopus glide past a 55-foot tall, LED-powered homage to the female form?

The Portugese Man-Of-War is well-known for its deadly sting, but there is a whole other side to the creature rarely seen. Ex-US military combat photographer Aaron Ansarov has been collecting stranded man-of-war on a Florida beach in order to study and photograph them. Rather than a single organism, a Man-Of-War is actually a colony of smaller creatures that are genetically identical, highly specialised and band together to create a larger and more complex being.

Unlike other siphonophores, the Man-Of-War actively propels around the ocean by using its ‘sail’. This specially developed organ allows it to traverse the surface of the sea in search of prey while dangling tentacles hang down as far as nine metres, each with deadly barbs to trap fish and shrimp.

There are many questions surrounding the nature of Portugese Man-Of-War and many of them have yet to be answered. Ansarov’s startling series certainly draws attention to their beauty, something so often obscured by talk of their fatal sting.

Photographer Silvia Grav achieves a brilliant, dreamlike aesthetic by appropriating techniques that include superimposition, multiple exposure and solarization. The outcome is a captivatingly dark, surreal exploration and study of subjective interposition. Questions are tacitly posed through her images: How does one interpret? What are the affects of dreams on the unconscious and conscious alike? How does time and thought affect memory? As a result, her photographs tend to function like condensed narrations suspended between empiricism and mental projection.  

"I never quite know how to explain it. Aesthetically, I love analogue photography- dirty, scratched. I’ve been obsessed with the black & White that old photographs possess since I’ve discovered photography, but I don’t know why. I see very clear when I find beautiful imagery, but I ignore why I’ve acquired my style. I think that this is unconscious, a set of many influences that are impossible to differentiate."

'I have a passion for minimalism and some of my favourite and most rewarding designs involves typographygeometry and science fiction (which you can see from my astronomy prints and the occasional movie posters I design). I like my work to adapt and evolve naturally for each project and not stay too static, often challenging myself with new self-initiated works, regularly showing variation in my creative process. Below you will find a few select clients I have excited, press and other places of excitement.’-  Simon C. Page

Martine Johanna is a Netherlands-based painter and illustrator who has also worked as a fashion designer.

"Martine Johanna has thrived on balancing a multi-faceted career, but it wasn’t until a recent collaboration with Dutch fashion house Spijkers en Spijkers in 2012 and ’13 that her work found the perfect alliance of exhibition artwork and fashion. A graduate in Fashion Design, Johanna was primed for the project, and was inspired by early 1900’s fashion icons and art movements. We caught up with Johanna about the Spijkers en Spijkers collaborations, and turning art into style." (From the September, 2013 issue of Juxtapoz Magazine)

With an experimental spirit and uncertain expectations, photographer Cole Barash dreamt up a concept - 6 Girls 6 Cities. He then traveled across the world to Tokyo, Sao Paulo, Moscow, Paris, London and New York where he exposed one roll of film per model to one roll of her city. The subjects were shot independently of each other as double exposures, layered at random during the process. Abstracted and dreamily intertwined, the photographs portray the aura of each girl and city as he experienced them, together but separate.

Barash plans to release the entire body of work this winter as a gallery show. The first printed views of “6G6C” can be seen in issue seven of WhatYouth magazine, a publication which celebrates surfing and life well-lived through a collector’s quarterly, films, interviews, and daily digital pieces.

Cole Barash established his name in the world of photography while working for some of the top creative snowboard and action industry clients like Burton, Adidas, Billabong, and more. He has created a wide spectrum of portraits and editorial photographs and currently lives in Brooklyn.

Bela Borsodi was born in Vienna 1966. After studying graphic design and fine art he started to work as a photographer. In 1992, Bela moved to New York and in 1999 he focused on still life photography, which is still the main direction of his work. Bela lives and works in New York. Skin Flicker takes the nude body and illuminates it with streak of light, giving it this amazing result.

Oh Jezebel, you have really done it this time. With either too much time (or length?) on their hands, the team recently brainstormed how the, erm, genitalia of various Disney princes should look and then passed the brief (or not so brief, as the case may be) onto in-house illustrator Tara Jacoby who put a clearly active imagination to use. The results are kind of epic, in more ways than one. No wonder these gents were in such hot demand!
