Having lived in large cities for the majority of his life, London-based photographer Aldo Filiberto is drawn to the infinite unknown that lies beyond the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Sex sells, and no company knows this better than American Apparel, the controversial North American clothing manufacturer and retailer best known for shocking ad campaigns featuring famous porn stars, visible pubic hair, and half-naked young women contorted into graphic, suggestive positions most often associated with girlie mags. The company has launched countless blog posts, been labeled as feminist, sexist, revolutionary, racist, and everything in between. For Los Angeles-based photographer Thomas Alleman, American Apparel’s pervasive presence in his hometown has gone a step further, helping to shape his perception of the city, its culture, and the larger currents of consumerism.

The series is simply titled Shanghai Sidecar Riders. The resulting portraits, set on a backdrop of the city’s stunning landscapes, are as individual as the riders themselves.

Photography duo New York Is Killing Me was founded by Kamil Tyebally and Saami Siddiqui as a fun and creative way to share their work with the world. As a side project for the Brooklyn-based roommates, NY Is Killing Me has accrued a portfolio that is both distinctive and multifaceted, with projects spanning the genres of portraiture, landscape, documentary, and commercial photography. Siddiqui, who serves as the team’s Art Director, and Tyebally, the man behind the camera, have both lived in diverse regions around the globe, bringing to each shoot both the technical acumen and cultural insight gathered from years of travel. Together, they have developed a carefully honed yet youthful aesthetic that renders everything from models in New York to the wooded trails of Big Sur in stunning detail.

NY Is Killing Me is just one of many projects Tyebally and Siddiqui are currently working on, and the former has recently began Documenting Dubai, in which he chronicles his own perceptions of the vibrant city. They spoke to us about their work, what it takes to make it in New York City and why they use a Squarespace online photography portfolio.

Ever since he was a young boy, Sébastien Tixier wanted to go to Greenland. His father had told him stories about the “Eskimos,” and young Sébastien imagined them, the Greenland Inuit, in their thick animal skins, living on the ice, surrounded by soaring cliffs of untouched snow.

The words “landscape photography” can often, unjustly, elicit yawns and cause eyelids to droop. Landmark: The Fields of Landscape Photography, recently published by Thames & Hudson, proves this to be exactly the wrong reaction.
