For Polish photographer Kacper Kowalski, a camera is an excuse to ascend 500 above the earth by gyroplane or paraglider, a way of defying the rules—be they the laws of gravity or the imposed restrictions of certain inaccessible areas, like chemical plants. When he flies, he pilots himself, simultaneously and painstakingly composing his aerial shots by hand. To either mount his camera to his aircraft or to surrender the position of pilot to someone else, he suggests, would be out of the question.

Berlin-based photographers Miguel Hahn and Jan- Christoph Hartung, who together form Hahn+Hartung, go against the grain of tradition war photography in that they are drawn not to modern-day battlefields but rather those that have been forgotten and buried by decades of history. For Texas Saigon, the duo returned to the scene of the Vietnam War, piecing together a story told by wounds that remain unhealed—if bandaged—forty years after the Fall of Saigon on April 30th, 1975.

Checker Taxi NYC

When photographer Jan Staller first arrived in New York City in 1976, he was pulled not to the metropolis’s buzzing epicenters but to its deserted hideaways, those rare areas over which few feet trod and even fewer voices sounded. From his new home in Tribeca, he ventured to the shores of the Hudson River and along the neglected West Side Highway, capturing instants of pensive silence that descended with the setting sun.

Fascinating Portraits Give us a Window into Native American Life on a Reservation in Montana

Richard, a Tattoo Artist, with his son in front of the only Gas Station in Hays. Hays is a small community with around 800 people near Fort Belknap’s southern end. People come here often as it is the only place to get a little snack or soda without driving a lot further off the Reservation to the next grocery store. Richard is also a very successful bow-hunter.

Seth and his brothers playing in front of their parents’ house at the Fort Belknap Agency. Because of the bleak situation young people are facing, they are less likely to take the traditional way of thinking, practicing, and simply living. This is a huge problem for any tribe; therefore, their language is traditionally passed down through the generations.

For The Buffalo that could not dream, German photographer Felix von der Osten chronicles life on Montana’s the Fort Belknap Reservation, where since 1888, the Gros Ventre and Assiniboine Native American tribes have raised their families and continued to foster a deeply-felt respect for the land.

Gothenburg, Sweden-based photographer Karl Lundholm and his girlfriend often fantasized about living overseas in Australia, holding on to what he now calls their “little dream” until they actually made the trip. When he finally arrived on the shores of the Queensland suburb of Coolangatta, the water rose before him, lapping, sparkling and warm, and he dove right in.

Photos Capture the Keystone XL Pipeline Protest Movement in America’s Heartland

Framed by the door of a tipi, Leota Eastman-Iron Cloud watches her kite float in the air at the Oyate Wahancanka Woecun camp outside of Ideal, South Dakota. Translated into english, the camp’s name means “Shielding the People” in the Lakota language. The place was installed to protest the Keystone XL pipeline and for prayer. The pipeline is proposed to cross the Rosebud Reservation at this location.

Since the Canadian company TransCanada petitioned the United States government in 2005 to approve the expansion the Keystone oil pipeline from Alberta’s tar sands into the heart of Steele City, Nebraska, the potential of the Keystone XL has loomed heavily over our country. For those of us not living directly on the land through which the pipeline would run, it seems like a relatively simple debate, with the liberals opposing its construction on the basis of environmental concerns and conservatives supporting it in hopes of a bolstered economy. When Toronto-based photographer Kate Schneider set foot on Nebraskan and South Dakotan land, however, she discovered something far more complex: a community of apolitical ranchers and Native American peoples banding together in protest against the Keystone XL, commonly referred to as “black snake.”

Japanese photographer Hayato Wakabayashi finds his inspiration in natural elements. While photographing his last project, which involved documenting the intensity of volcanoes and typhoons, he started to become interested in the slow and organic variations of nature. For his most recent series, Gravity, he ventured out into the bitter cold of Japan’s mountainous regions to capture one of natures most beautiful phenomenon. These frozen caves and waterfalls can only be found in the coldest months of the year.
