The Capitol at Washington D.C.

2009-12-11 6

D.C.‘s as blue as ice. There is so much to see and so much to explore. But of course, make sure it’s on a warm season.

Five days after President Obama was sworn into office, my family drove to the nation’s capital for a mini-vacation. It turned out to be one of the coldest vacation ever. Sure, it was sunny and the skies were clear but the gusts of wind made the whole thing unbearable. We only managed to stay outdoors for less than an hour and made a beeline for the hotel.

But it also turned out to be one of my most favorite sets. The Kodak Professional Elite Chrome (200 iso) just blew my eyes the moment I got my prints from the lab. It was just so perfectly blue! I would definitely recommend going to Washington D.C. There is so much to see and so much to explore. But of course, make sure it’s on a warm season.

    Eugenia Loli's Surreal Collages

    In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.

    Vicuna's Travel Stories | Burkina Faso: The Land of Upright People

    When someone asks me why I love Burkina Faso so much and what's so special about it, I answer without any hesitation: the people. There's something in this country that connects the people together very strongly. Here, foreign visitors are warmly welcomed. And honestly, I think that the portraits I'm most proud of and that I really love are those shot in Burkina Faso. "Why," you ask?

    A Salute to the Masters: Ice Skating (A Tribute to Monte Fresco)

In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.

     Inspiring and Daring Women in Contemporary Photography (Part I)

    We love a striking photo as much as the next person, but a unique point of view makes us head straight to a feature. Who should the world know more about? Who has rocked our perception of beauty, sexuality and creativity? These questions populate our notepads, and our list of photographers is quite long. For International Women's Day 2016, we whittle the directory down to our current favorites, photographers who resist labels (even the ones we give them) and dare the world to see what they see.
