I Built a Replica Chinese Takeout Restaurant in My Photo Studio

My name is Nicky Hamilton, I’m a photographer from London. In-between commercial work I produce fine art photography, specializing in cinematic set builds, which unlike my commercial work is done solo, the set design, build, photography, styling, and retouching. It started this way as a means to an end but then blossomed to become a meditative process that’s creatively very fulfilling for me.

How I Shot a Photo Series Based on The Twilight Zone

I had been itching to do a composite photo series for quite some time. It’s something I had never actually done up to this point, but I was and currently am a huge admirer of the art form. I’ve been following the great composite photographers like Dave Hill and Drew Lundquist for the past several years.

This Artist Matches Pantone Swatches to Real Life

Pantone’s quest is to become the universal language of color. The Pantone Matching System allows printers everywhere in the world to ensure they’re producing colors accurately. Artist and graphic designer Andrea Antoni has found a different use for this language of color: matching it to photographs taken in his home country of Italy.

The Boys Who Grew Breasts: Portraits of the Effects of Risperdal

Johnson & Johnson has been fined over $3 billion for marketing the antipsychotic drug Risperdal to children. Over 18,000 boys and young men are now suing the company over a side effect of the drug called gynecomastia, which causes adolescent boys to develop female breasts. Photographer Richard Johnson recently completed a photo project to tell the boys' stories: it's titled Risperdal Boys.

Mesmerizing Long Exposure Photos of Traffic Lights in the Fog

Fine Art photographer Lucas Zimmermann's long exposure photographs of traffic lights in the fog are oddly satisfying. At once creepy and serene, his 2013 series Traffic Lights and this month's follow-up Traffic Lights 2.0 are both worth checking out.

Paper Dolls: Recreating Iconic Fashion Looks with Paper Cutouts

The inspiration suddenly came to me while I was having a shower. I’ve always been highly interested in fashion shooting, but since the bar to entry of a great fashion photo is so fixated on the clothing, why not make them out of paper?

Photographing Paris Underwater After Heavy Flooding

A few days ago, we had a crazy flood in Paris. The Seine rose by a whopping 6.10m (20 feet for you imperial friends), overflowing the banks, depriving people of electricity, and flooding buildings, public transports, and businesses. It was a rather destructive flood, especially for cities outside of Paris where entire towns, as I am writing this, are still chest-deep underwater.

Animals and Humans Share the City Streets in this Surreal Photo Series

Lithuania-born photographer and artist Ceslovas Cesnakevicius' series The Zoo is the result of a thought he had while visiting the diverse cities of Amsterdam and London. "A hairy beast walking wouldn’t bother anybody too much here," he thought, "as long as it minded its own business." Thus, The Zoo was born.

These Photos Show the Priorities of a Photographer

Camera gear often isn't cheap, and sometimes photographers need to make touch choices when it comes to what gear to purchase and what they'll give up in order to purchase it. Photographer Barnabas Horvath decided to turn this painful reality into a photo series called "Priorities."

Portraits of People Lost in Invisible Device Screens

Photographer Eric Pickersgill has a photo project that has the Web abuzz this week. Titled "Removed," it shows what smartphones and tablets have done to our daily lives and the "intimate" moments we share with friends and family. In each scene, the devices themselves have been taken out, resulting in strange photos that force us to reflect on our interactions with technology.
