Kaija Straumanis, a U.S.-based photographer and grad student, has gone viral with a funny and light-hearted set of self-portrait images that capture various random objects as they collide gracefully with her head. Perhaps the best thing about the images is that they’re pulled off so well. Each picture captures the exact moment of impact, and despite her mashed-up face and flailing hair and glasses, her eyes remain impressively focused.

Sadly, most of us can’t remember our reactions to most of the new things when we tried them for the very first time. In order to capture some of these first experiences, photographers David Wile and April Maciborka pictured toddlers tasting lemon for the first time. The bitter fruit, that even adults might be sometimes reluctant to taste, called out the most genuine reactions from all of the kids, going from disbelief to shock or betrayal.
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!
Remember one of the most impressive blow j0bs you’ve seen, a photo project by a Lithuanian photographer Tadao Cern? When his pictures of people facing a strong air current received so much attention worldwide, Tadao decided to take this idea abroad – luckily, that’s where New Yorker decided to step in and help organize the project in several cities. On 28-29 September, Tadao did this in Leipzig, Germany, and we’re excited to share his newest shots.
Commercial advertising photographer Tim Tadder just finished shooting a new project he calls “Water Wigs”. Tim and his colleagues came up with this crazy idea while working with a mannequin in a studio. They realized that water made cool hair like shapes which worked exceptionally well on bald heads. So he found a bunch of awesome bald men and threw water balloons at their heads to create hilarious water wigs.
Last Friday, during the Design Weekend in Vilnius, Lithuanian photographer Tadas Černiauskas held one of the craziest photo shoots we’ve ever seen. Visitors to the TADAO CERN studio were invited to participate in an unprecedented photo session called “Blow J0b” where a strong current of air was blown into their faces creating some incredibly funny facial expressions.
