Stunning Portraits of Wild Animals by Brad Wilson

After 12 years photographing models, musicians, and celebrities, Brad Wilson decided that he wanted to photograph something a little more unpredictable: wild animals. Wilson began travelling to zoos, animal sanctuaries, and studios to photograph everything from a lion to a chimpanzee. The photo shoots were far from the orderly scenes Wilson experienced while shooting magazine stories and advertisements. Instead, he says, they became a kind of “organised chaos”. “You can’t direct animals like you can people. When you are shooting animals, you have to wait for them to do whatever it is they are going to do. You have to be patient and pick your moments”, says Wilson. “It’s completely changed the way I looked at photography”.

This year’s Visa Pour l’Image showcases 26 exhibitions around the city.

Central African Republic by Pierre Terdjman – The Seleka militia took over in March 2013, and perpetrated massive violations of human rights – massacres, rape, torture and executions, and burning villages to the ground. Nearly one fifth of the population has had to flee and they are now living in appalling conditions in the bush and IDP camps. In September, the predominantly Christian anti- Balaka militia embarked on a wave of reprisals against the Muslims with massacres, summary executions and looting; the sides had changed, but the violence continued. Terrified Muslims fled north-west, to towns such as Bossangoa and Bouca which are traditionally Muslim. Of the 100 000 Muslims that lived in Bangui, only one thousand are left; the others have fled across the border. Today it seems unlikely that any change will occur. The rift may very well be permanent. Here: A wounded man in the community hospital. (Photo by Pierre Terdjman/Paris Match)

20 Breath-Taking Photos Taken From an Airplane

I still have to pinch myself sometimes when I realize that humans are flying in giant metal birds. If you were to tell somebody 120 years ago that humans would fly in the future, you’d get laughed at. It’s incredible to sit back and think about how far we’ve technologically advanced in the last century.

Seriously, think how crazy it is. Let’s say you had a bad week at work. You feel tired, you feel stressed, and you just want to get away from it all. Well, you can! You can book a plane ticket on Friday evening, fly to the Bahamas just for the weekend, and be back in time for work on Monday. I don’t know about you, but thinking about how that’s possible is mind blowing (obviously you’d have to have the financial resources available).

Today we have an incredible collection of photographs taken from an airplane. I hope they’ll give you a rush of excitement and encourage you to take out your camera next time you find yourself near an airplane window. Enjoy!

She wonders for how long this part of the city is going to appear. This happens to every city though, doesn’t it? Enjoy.
