A strange story from over in Florida: the Tampa Bay Times reports that back in August, a 23-year-old man named Andrew Noll (picture above at right) was shot by his former lover.

Two months ago we featured the work of Fan Ho, a Chinese photographer who spent much of his life documenting the streets of Hong Kong. His photographs were, to put it lightly, a hit with everybody who saw them. Strong composition and an incredible understanding of light (if you’ll allow the pun) shone through in every frame.
Today, we get to go a little bit deeper thanks to the show The Art of Photography, who recently took a closer look at Fan Ho’s work, taking the time to point out what it is that sets his images apart from the many others out there. Read more…
Think how often a picture looks better, more engaging, when turned to black and white—hues that look nothing like real life. We detect the contours of real life in the photo — get that framework of reality — and the image, subconsciously, becomes our coloring book, providing just enough guidance that the mind works to fill in the rest.
