Adorable Friendship Between A Farmer And His Pigs

By • Apr 15th, 2014 • Category: Animals, Cute, Latest Posts, Photography

Meet Otchan. He’s a pig farmer who shares a beautiful relationship with his cuddly pink creatures – all 1,200 of them. Kagawa-based photographer Toshiteru Yamaji spent ten years documenting Otchan’s bond with his animals. The caring and loving farmer serenades his pigs with a guitar, takes them to the beach, cuddles with them, or simply spends time with them – a far cry from the often abusive and inhumane conditions experienced by pigs in U.S. mass-production farms.

Vivian Maier, an excellent New York street photographer who took thousand of photos in the 1950s and 60s, was left woefully unacknowledged during her time.

We’ve all probably got some sort of childhood family photos that bring us back to the “good ole’ days,” which is why so many o us can relate to photographer and father of six Alain Laboile’s beautiful photos of his family.

These outlandish works by Polish photographer Dariusz Klimczak follow closely in surrealist master Salvador Dali’s footsteps. Klimczak’s work, which definitely blurs the line between photography and digital art, populates desolate landscapes with bizarre and surreal characters and objects. He says that the aim of his images is to use stories and universal symbols to move his viewers and force them to think or to simply crack a smile.

Have you ever had difficulties trying to get a baby to sit down and pose for a picture? It’s a huge headache now, but it was even harder for mothers in the Victorian era, when camera technology made posing for photographs difficult.

History can be a heavy subject, but it doesn’t have to be. Here’s an awesome collection of photographs from the 1920s-1940s covering something a little bit more light-hearted and everyday – women’s beauty products and procedures. People had regular everyday lives back then as well. They worried about many of the same things then that we worry about now. However, curling your hair or smoothing your wrinkles 60-70 years ago looked a lot different than it does now.

The Addams Family’s Living Room Was Actually Pink!

Almost everybody knows the Addams family – their creepy monochrome antics are a TV classic. Which makes these pictures all the more surprising, then – they indicate that the Addams family’s living room set was covered in pink, red, turquoise, and other decidedly non-Addams-family-ish colors. In black-and-white films, characters often had to wear strange shades of lipstick (like brown or green) to get the right shades to appear on black-and-white film.

Captivating Black And White Photography From French Photographer Benoit Courti

By • Sep 23rd, 2013 • Category: Latest Posts, Photography

French photographer Benoit Courti‘s photography covers a wide spectrum of subjects, but most of his pictures retain a powerful intimacy with their subjects, especially his portraits. He is the consummate fine arts photographer, seeming to be equally comfortable with both black and white and color, but it is probably his black and white work that captures our attention most. It is gritty, dark, intimate and beautiful.
