Dances with Wolves: Monty Sloan, the Wolf Park photographer

Today I’ve managed to find another interesting YouTube video. Just like the title implies, it’s about a very courageous man, who cuddles with wolves, as if they were pussycats.

Brain Twister: Joseph Ford’s Aerial

I’m curious by nature, I love puzzles. I like optical illusions and photos which play tricks on my sense of vision and my brain above all. Two and a half months ago I wrote about an image by Bela Borsodi, which was so tricky that one could hardly tell whether it was a photomontage or ...

Tip: Joe Capra’s Time Laps Videos

The 10 most expensive photos of all times

On a daily basis, I come across photos that I like and that I would ascribe a high monetary value. I reflect upon how difficult it must have been to capture the motive, how gorgeous the photo turned out or how groundbreaking the idea behind it or the underlying message is. At the art market, ...

Absurdity can be so much fun: Giuseppe Colarusso’s Improbabilità

Scarcely have I laughed as much as I did today, when I took a break from 12 to 3pm to surf the internet in order to protect my cream-cheese coloured skin. Giuseppe Colarusso‘s photos of absurd objects that will never come into existence, referred to as Improbabilità, came right on cue to put a smile ...

Optical Illusion: Photomontage or one single Photo?

Inductive reasoning is what enables us human beings to master new and uncertain situations by making assumptions and generalisations and thus cope with the complexities of our world. Stereotyped thinking is, after all, what structures our thinking processes and what makes them quick and efficient. But it is also a feature of the human brain ...
