100 Cameras Were Given To The Homeless And This Is What They Photographed

100 disposable Fujifilm cameras will be given out to people who are living on the street, in a local shelter or are otherwise affected by homelessness. Unlike any project before, the homeless of Spartanburg, SC will have an integral hand in helping expose the issue of homelessness rather than merely being the problem that is trying to be solved.

Through Our Eyes is bigger than a social experiment. It’s greater than an art piece. It’s more important than an outreach. This project is a lifeline. The photographers will be equipped with the tools to tell their story. They will be encouraged through a word of hope. The community will be engaged to support those who work with the homeless.

Parisian graffiti artist Astro contorts flat architectural facades into illusory vortexes with a vibrant graphic twist. His painted patterns combine smooth, swirling curves and calligraphy with sharper shapes in dynamically detailed designs that are eye-catching on their own; and, as if to suck his viewers farther into each piece, he adds the appearance of dark, receding chasms, tunneling deep into the walls.

All Power To The Imagination: Amazing Artworks Of The Contemporary Painter Alexander Savko

1

Alexander Savko’s works contain a collision between the aesthetic of Western television shows and the concept of the “everyday heroism of Soviet man”, an idea used widely in ideological constructions during the Soviet era. According to this concept, every Soviet citizen accomplishes a daily feat of labor by fulfilling his quota or even just by going to work. While mass culture introduced Superman, a man with special abilities, Soviet paintings offer a counterpoint in the heroic, yet run-of-the-mill Everyman. Continue »

Winter Horseman
The Winter in Inner Mongolia is very unforgiving. At a freezing temperature of minus twenty and lower with constant breeze of snow from all direction, it was pretty hard to convince myself to get out of the car and take photos. Not until I saw Inner Mongolia horsemen showing off their skills in commanding the steed from a distance, I quickly grab my telephoto lens and capture the moment when one of the horseman charged out from morning mist.
