Thought Provoking Photos of Meat and Fish Stuffed Inside Plastic Containers

If you’re at all interested in the question of animal rights, ethics, and morality, you’ve probably come across the topic of animals in the food industry. I try to follow material about humans’ level of visual experience of the food they consume, and I’ve been researching a handful of artists who explore this topic. I was instantly fascinated by Danish artist Per Johansen‘s Mæt (eng. Full) pictures. Such beautiful, gorgeously lit still life photographs; and I love that I can say that even though the subject is plastic bottles packed glutinously full of food and animal products.

Photo du Jour: ‘Tomb Sweeping Day’ Honors the Dead

Francois Trezin

The Qingming Festival, also known as Tomb Sweeping Day, is a Chinese festival in which families visit the gravesites of their ancestors to pay their respects. Inspired by the long-standing tradition that was just celebrated on April 5th, Shanghai-based photographer Francois Trezin crafted this gorgeous gravesite installation complete with a bountiful mix of sacrificial offerings of paper money and the departed’s favorite foods and wine. On this day, people are also known to fly kites and carry willow branches, as the day coincides with the onset of Spring.

After two weeks of photographing the recent Maidan Square protests in Ukraine and feeling frustrated that he wasn’t contributing anything new to the coverage, London-based photographer Tom Jamieson turned his lens on a unique subject: the DIY weapons crafted by Ukrainian protestors.

Trash Organized Neatly: A Photographer’s Colorful Collection of Discarded Objects

Living in the heart of any metropolis for a decade or longer might require periods of seeking alternate views, scents, and sounds, regardless of how ‘urban’ we consider ourselves. Native urbanites, too, need the sun and sea, sand, and wide-frame vistas. NYC-based photographer Barry Rosenthal‘s series Found in Nature speaks to an impeccably organized urbanite who, despite shooting objects that were found along the coastal areas of New York Harbor, still packed them tightly and densely into frame, much like all of us on the subway during peak commute hours, looking like quite the–ahem–can of sardines.

Polaroid “Onestep” 1000.

The Polaroid Land Camera 1000 was a consumer camera, launched in 1977 and produced until 1980. It used SX-70 integral film and was available in several models distinguished by the way it focused (fixed, zone-focus, autofocus).

The creative geniuses behind Austrian studio Staudinger + Franke have certainly found a raucous way to discard outdated gadgets in their series The Icons of Technology. A dynamic fusion of photography and post production, these electronic giants are literally detonated from the inside out.
