Dresden-based photographer Matthias Haker keeps his forsaken sanctuaries a secret, guarded closely from meddlesome spirits and prying hands. When he asked about the aged ballrooms, power plants, hotels, and bathhouses, the artist responds evasively, “Somewhere in Europe…”

Trespassing into Forgotten Places, Stepping Back in Time

Croatian photographer Mirna Pavlovic is pulled inexorably to the clandestine corners of the world, to the since-forgotten places where people once lived, worked, and probably died. She’s infected by a wanderlust that cuts to the bone, driven to concealed and guaranteed areas throughout the continent where few souls dare travel.

In the Norwegian Countryside, a Photographer Uncovers a Tale of Family, Grief, and Hope

“I was commissioned by an art institution to photograph the farmer Edvard Bjelland and his farm. He is one of the last to run a traditional farm in an old-fashioned way. His lifestyle is also very rare to find in modern Norway. I understood quite soon that I wanted to take this project further and develop it in my own personal way” – Elin Høyland

Over the last five years, Gregory Crewdson has lived in relative privacy, sequestered near his boyhood home in rural Becket, Massachusetts, where he spent his days largely alone, below the forest canopy. It’s here in the thickets, on the foundation of this place inhabited by less than 2,000 people, that the photographer builds Cathedral of the Pines, a body of 31 images named after a local trail.

In the early 1930s, Joseph Stalin and his longtime associate Lazar Kaganovich conceived of and oversaw the building of the Moscow Metro, a palatial underground network designed in large part to inspire reverence and devotion for the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. Eighty years since its opening in 1935, Vancouver-based photographer David Burdeny walks beneath the high marble ceilings and decadent chandeliers, capturing what remains of the still-glittering facade that once belied a dark and painful history.

Travel Photographer Vivienne Gucwa Takes Us On an Enchanted Journey Through the Streets of Paris, NYC, London, and Tokyo (Sponsored)

On a rare snow-filled evening, the city of New York stopped all trains and buses, banning all cars and cabs from driving the roads. Vivienne Gucwa @travelinglens was one of the few souls who ventured outside, capturing the eerie but magical night using her #a7II mirrorless camera by @sonyalpha. When she experiences these moments that few people get to see first-hand, she turns to her Sony cameras for their built-in Wi-Fi, which allows her to share her professional-quality images over social media to an audience of tens of thousands.

Over the holidays, travel photographer and Sony Artisan of Imagery Vivienne Gucwa took over the Feature Shoot Instagram, ringing in the New Year with breathtaking shots from around the world. From the hidden corners of the Parisian street scene to London’s iconic and singular Dennis Severs’ House, decorated in the style of the 16th-17th century Huguenot silk weavers, Gucwa sought out secret treasures in some of the planet’s most populated metropolises.

In Response to the Digital Era, One Photographer Imagines a Terrifying Future Where Everything Is Automated and Sanitized

In 2013, Russian photographer Dmitry Lookianov began documenting his neighborhood on the outskirts of Moscow. Here the high rises form a perfect grid, dissected by symmetrical paths and populated with empty playgrounds, perpetually smothered in snow. The people, however, are nowhere to be seen. What the photographer soon realized was that the images he was creating were more concerned with the future than anything else, and the series gradually evolved into a study of contemporary living. In this partially constructed reality, using models and living spaces found on Facebook, Lookianov uses his camera to envision what our future might look like.

When New York-based photographer Danelle Manthey was a little girl in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, she and her family had a Christmas ritual; when the neighborhood newspaper published their annual map marking the most extravagantly decorated houses, together they drove down the glittering roads near home, stopping to peer out at illuminated trees and life-sized reindeer.

Since her days studying architecture in Berlin in the 1990s, German-born photographer Stephanie Kloss has held a soft spot for the mid-century modernist houses that pepper the landscape of Hollywood and Los Angeles suburbia. In the large windows, clean lines, and thoughtfully placed palm trees, she saw the ghosts of glamorous figures and their parties. Here, the memories of Frank Sinatra, John F. Kennedy, and Marilyn Monroe lingered, recalling visions of poolside lounging and vintage cocktails.

A Mesmerizing Look Inside America’s Textile Factories and Mills

Made in USA: Textiles

Bartlettyarns, Harmony, Maine

NY-based photographer Chris Payne’s latest work Textiles takes us behind the doors of America’s textile industry. To highlight the roots of this industry, Payne has chosen to photograph factories and mills located in the Northeast where it was born. In his photos we see dizzy patterns of repetition, immaculate grids of steel machinery, fluffy mountain peaks of wool, and bright-colored yarns suspended overhead like Vietnamese lanterns. But what makes this work interesting is the deliberate inclusion of the workers, which reveal the care, skill and craftsmanship of their work and the efforts taken to ensure a high-quality end product.
