His “Day to Night” photo series explores the many changes that take place in Stehphan’s beloved city of New York as it transitions from day to night.
A Chinese man, named Li, became a celebrity after he tried to smuggle his pet turtle disguised as a hamburger on a plane on July 29. Flight 345 to Beijing, however, left without the turtle, as the airport security didn’t fall the the trick. As Li casually tried to board his flight, the security guards got curious about the X-ray machine’s readings of Li’s luggage. The innocent KFC hamburger looked nothing but odd, as it clearly had limbs…

One year ago, a New Mexico-based photographer Wes Naman was wrapping Christmas gifts with his assistant and started goofing around with the scotch tape. The artist immediately had an idea that after a year developed into the “Scotch Tape” portrait series, where volunteers put the tape around their faces to create terrifying and just absolutely hilarious expressions. Noses and lips get bent, and Wes also likes to stretch people’s eyebrows to make the eyes pop out – the final results are so bizarre that hardly any retouching is needed!
