Standing on the shores of Iceland’s black sand beach, South Carolina-based photographer Richard Bernabe captures pyramidal iceberg fragments thrust from the sea. At dawn and dusk, the otherworldly ice sculptures are set aglow with pink rays, sparkling like gems against the dark sand.

Having journeyed everywhere from Mongolia to Italy, travel and portrait photographer Brian Hodges seeks a genuine connection with each of his subjects, no matter how different they might be from one another. By framing those from diverse communities against a blank backdrop, he removes them from their cultural surroundings in hopes of highlighting the shared humanity that extends beyond geographical and social barriers. Here, he explores Pushkar, India, a Hindu pilgrimage site, through a group of sadhus, or holy men.

Photo du Jour: Handstand in Lake Michigan

When New York City-based photographer Daniel Seung Lee visited Chicago in 2011, he was struck by the depthless tides of Lake Michigan. The sandy floor seemed to hover just below the surface of the water, allowing bathers to effortlessly wander far from the shore without a need to swim. During one balmy summer dip, Lee photographed his friend performing a handstand amidst the quiet, rippling water.

Photo du jour: Berlin Central Station

Perched on a platform in Berlin Central Station, architecture and landscape photographer Jens Fersterra captures a long exposure of a speedy train as it whizzes by, leaving a blush-red blur in its wake. Opened in 2006, the station was designed by Gerkan, Marg and Partners on the site of the historic Lehrter Bahnhof building, which was torn down in 1951 under East German command. After 11 years of construction, the busy 5-level station came in part to represent a reunified Germany, with newly built tunnels running through and connecting areas throughout the country and beyond. The ingenious glass roofing and 351 yard glass hall through which trains pass allows natural light to flood in through all hours of the day. It is currently the largest station of its kind in Europe.

In celebration of the joys of summer comes Summertime, a book published by Chronicle Books and edited by photographer Joanne Dugan.

As it should be, it’s chock full of idyllic, witty, and wistful images of summer, and is justifiably dominated by water-centric images that result in a strong yearning to be relaxing poolside or on some remote beach, enjoying an unplugged vacation. One can dream…
