My name is Karol Nienartowicz and I am a mountain photographer from Poland. For the last 6 years, I’ve been traveling around Europe, climbing its mountains and spending my nights in a tent in the wildest and most remote places. I usually photograph sunrises and sunsets, so I would put my tent in beautiful scenery. Therefore, I decided to photograph my so-called ‘mobile home’ in the majestic mountain landscape.

Eyes are windows of the soul: a phrase that perfectly reflects what we feel when our gaze plunges into another. The french photographer Réhahn is one of the most skilled when it comes to capture the emotion of these moments

Rehahn appeals to our intuition and imagination and manages to touch our sensibility. We should stop on each image to read the thoughts of the subject photographed through his or her eyes.

No need for words, only the depth of the retina and the intensity of the pupil, flattered by fine lines that lie at the corners of eyes, will allow us to glimpse a soul.

Me and my husband frequently travel to beautiful places outside of our country, but this time we decided to explore the home country Latvia and visited Kemeri bog. It is more than 8000 years old and is one of the largest moss bogs on the Latvian cost. This place has become increasingly popular in the past two years since the footbridge was renovated, especially since it’s only about an hour’s drive from the capital city of Riga.

It's time once again for a look at the animal kingdom and our interactions with the countless species that share our planet. Today's photos include a sloth hanging around in Panama, reindeer herders in far northern Russia, an Orangutan taking a wheelbarrow ride in Indonesia, a wild horse roundup in Spain, dolphins in the Mediterranean, flying foxes in India, orcas in Puget Sound, a leopard with its head stuck in a pot in India, and much more. These images and many others are part of this roundup of animals in the news from recent months, seen from the perspectives of their human observers, companions, captors, and caretakers, as part of an ongoing series on animals in the news.

In the late 1880s, the photographer Al Sayyid Abd al Ghaffar carried cumbersome equipment to the desert city of Mecca, capturing scenes of thousands of Muslim pilgrims camped in the surrounding hills and valleys during the Hajj. Today, more than 125 years later, more than two million Hajj pilgrims descended on Mecca, which has grown drastically to accommodate the annual gathering. Gathered here is a series of photographs from al Ghaffar taken sometime around 1887, compared with images from similar locations taken in 2015. [ 17 photos total ]

When we have friends from abroad visiting us, we take the opportunity to set out on a small tour around Luxembourg. Our friends end up being amazed by the quantity of sights there are to see and how beautiful this small country is.

Last week we took our Danish friends to visit some of the most popular sites in Luxembourg and we decided to produce a collection of “miniature” shots of the country. Here are some tilt and shift photos taken around Luxembourg. [ 6 photos total ]

Photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand, well-known for his Earth from Above project, has a new movie coming out titled HUMAN. Arthus-Bertrand spent three years collecting stories from more than 2,000 people in 60 countries. The film recounts many of these stories, interspersed with stunning portraits and the sort of aerial imagery he is famous for, depicting the human condition and our interactions with the Earth. Arthus-Bertrand has been kind enough to share some of the portraits and aerial photography from HUMAN with us here. For more information about the project and film, you can visit their Facebook page as well. [ 24 photos total ]

My name is Takashi Yasui, I’m 35 years old, and live in Osaka, Japan. Basically, I take photos in Kyoto so I call myself a “Kyoto Photographer.”  About five years ago, when my niece was born, I started taking family portraits; that’s how I got into photography.

About 4 years ago I installed “Instagram”on my iPhone and began to follow photographers from all over the world. This had a big impact on me: I met a lo of Instagrammers in Japan, leaned about photography, how to shoot, how to edit, how to find a location, composition, perspective, and things like that. Recently, I met few talented photographers from the US, Canada,  and France, and was exposed to their take on shooting. It really helped me to grow as a photographer. Now, photography is a more of a pleasure, it is a passion for me.

I’m shooting with Fujifilm X-T10, X-M1 with XF14mmF2.8 R, XF35mmF1.4 R. Editing with Lightroom, using VSCOfilm presets. [ 16 photos total ]
