The “biggest snowstorm in New York’s history” turned out to be a giant flop but apparently something did come out of it. Vivienne Gucwa who’s been photographing the city for over a decade captured these extremely rare images of city streets completely empty of people and cars.

In Vivienne’s own words: “What made this storm stand out versus other storms was that there was a ban on all vehicles aside from snow plows and emergency services. This meant that there … Read the rest

Belgian photographer Jeffrey Vanhoutte has turned a simple milk creamer ad campaign into an extraordinary piece of art. He teamed up with dancer Noi Pakon to create a series of breath-taking photographs exploring motion, stillness, shadow and form. The powdered creamer produced by the Dutch company Kievit was used as a medium – fine granules of milk – to describe and enhance the movements of the dancer in space. In some of the last images and the video which was … Read the rest

Young Turkish photographer Erkin Demir blends beautifully expressive portraits with architectural and natural landscapes. The result is a black and white essay on personality and the free flight thought. Educated in Business Administration, Erkin took up photography following a great interest in the Visual Arts. Fashion photography became a passion but creative portraits prove to be a realm of great attention and dedication for the young artist.

The portraits are along the same lines as the work of another previously … Read the rest

An almost endless variety of colors blend on their surface, which resemble a hybrid between flower petals and fish scales. Brightly colored to attract species of the same kind and at the same time hide from predators, these insect have developed a beautiful, … Read the rest

Although the video of Russian daredevils Vadim Makhorov and Vitaliy Raskalov made its round on the internet and made quite a few palms sweaty just by looking at the footage, we think that without it the viewers can appreciate the full grandeur of Shanghai’s rapidly shaping skyline. The duo’s impressive photographs show the city from a vantage point that only a few lucky ones are able to experience.

High above the clouds, stand several of Shanghai’s skyline towers including KPF’s … Read the rest

Guy Cohen produced these carefully composed and executed black and white images through while exploring different parts of the world such as the US, Australia, Norway and Romania. While many of the photographs were indeed taken abroad, the student in Jerusalem’s portfolio showcases a lot of significant sights in his hometown.

From snowy streets to striking tile patterns, Guy Cohen’s black and white images tell the story of a solitary wander around a city rich in history and culture.

20 year-old student Lucas Zimmermann from Landau, Germany has taken a simple concept and turned into a beautiful and atmospheric piece of photography. The images were taken at a small intersection in Weimar on a dark and foggy night. The resulting images have an eerie, movie-like quality to them and as well as a striking visual sharpness.

We at Epistrophy are definitely looking forward to seeing Lucas’ future projects.

Via Ignant and Behance.… Read the rest
