Hey, it's June and it's the wedding month! Weddings are incomplete if there's not an elegant cake present in the photographs. Even though these sweets were not as candy-colourful as they were in the actual events, the photographs are oozing with a saccharine trip to memory lane!
Our beautiful brides have said the most awaited “I do,” and our gorgeous grooms have unending smiles plastered on their faces — it is now time to celebrate their happily-ever-afters! As a way to commemorate the couples’ special day, the cutting/eating of their wedding cakes is an essential part and it must be well-documented, especially in photographs.
Here are a number of monochrome photographs of some of the most famous couples in history as they shared their very first piece of heavenly life as lifetime partners — their (usually towering) wedding cakes! (All images via life.com.)

April 23 marked World Book Day, a UNESCO-designated annual event held in celebration of books and reading all over the globe. To commemorate, here are fascinating images of people from several decades ago, reading not on Kindles or iPads as many are wont to do today, but actual books, newspapers, and other forms of the written word.
There are many possible reasons for taking pictures. It could be to document an event, to capture breathtaking scenery, to preserve a fond memory, or simply, to have a snapshot of someone close to your heart. Whatever the reason, there's almost always a story behind a picture, no matter how significant or trivial it may be. And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print. If you want a quick keepsake from that treasured moment or a snapshot of that special someone though, you can have it instantly, through Lomo'Instant Stories!

There's a certain air of sadness in Nishe's portraits. More often than not, the faces of her subjects are either partially or completely hidden. Sad, yes, but undeniably beautiful. Melancholia, as well as loss of innocence and the pains of growing up, are recurring themes in the photographer's body of work and she presents all these quite gracefully.
Having a respectable career photographing social, political and economical matters, Philip Wolmuth is capable of starting a dialogue with the public via his thought-provoking photographs.
Going through the collective of images on his latest work, it seems impossible not to be instantly affected by the rawness of the emotions captured within the images. The passion, the anger, the commotion, the rebellion, the fervor, the shouting, the devotion; his work is inebriating. It's as if the images are screaming at you and, for a short while, you are transported to the Speakers' Corner without actually setting foot on that location.
As a wildlife cameraman and photographer, Ian Llewellyn has worked on a number of television projects. The UK-based lensman breaks free from the strict confines of his profession by engaging in monochrome photography. His personal work is a plethora of abstract and experimental imagery, created in a style distinctly his own. Llewellyn is an ardent user of a Leica Monochrom camera, on which he mounted the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens, producing the most imaginative, phantasmic results.
Although its existence has always been known among locals, it was only in 1913 when the rest of the world was introduced to the Inca site of Machu Picchu through an expedition headed by Yale University and professor Hiram Bingham.
