Jerko the Gowanus Water Vacuum

Captured in these dreamy photographs by Elizabeth Weinberg, Jerko the Gowanus Water Vacuum is a controversial houseboat that docked in the Gowanus canal in Brooklyn a few years ago. The design drew criticism because the water is polluted and likely dangerous to be in contact with. It’s not prime real estate, but people reportedly lived in the boat for a year, risking their health to live rent-free. While this turned ...

Pizza in the Wild

Is there a time and a place for a slice of pepperoni pizza? Not according to photographer Jonpaul Douglass in his series of photographs entitled Pizza in the Wild.

In “Skin Series,” Japanese photographer Yusuke Sakai takes a closer look at the skin, feathers, and hair of wild animals. His macro shots reveal the texture of animals such as the Asian elephant and Arabian camel and give viewers a rare view of iconic creatures.

FORKS: A Quest for Culture, Cuisine, and Connection

At the beginning of Allan Karl’s WorldRider adventure, his outwardly successful life is falling apart. He is divorced from his wife of seven years. He has abandoned his high-powered job at a media agency. He feels empty. The turn of events is the setup for a mid-life crisis, and maybe that is just what this book is about. But, Karl’s crazy idea is not some half-baked stunt; it’s a dream ...

Relitti Riletti Photo Series by Davide Virdis

Italian photographer Davide Virdis’s newest project, “Relitti riletti” (“Ruins re-read”) sees the artist playing anthropologist, capturing photographs of abandoned spaces in Florence, Sassari, Rome and Pontassieve. Virdis transforms the forsaken, vacant areas into light-flooded industrial landscapes, using his large format camera to inject life into that which history has forgotten. The artist juxtaposes uninhabitable spaces with signs of everyday activity – writing is scrawled on an asylum wall; a decrepit ...

“Metamorphosis” Photo Book by Brian Rose

After photo-documenting gentrification in Time and Space on the Lower East Side, photographer Brian Rose turned his lens uptown to focus on the Meatpacking District. He collected his vision in Metamorphosis, pairing his impressions of the Meatpacking district from 1985 beside newer images from 2013. In the 80s, Rose says, the neighborhood would change its face three times in a single day. Before dawn, butchers worked in the meat markets, ...

Ryan Schude began photographing Them & Theirs in 2001, while he was still a student at the San Francisco Art Institute. Then, he restricted the project to people who have cars with vanity plates and collected around fifteen images. After he graduated, he left the photo series alone for a while. But, then, in 2010, he returned to the idea, shed his previous limitations, and began taking many more photographs ...
