Frank Herfort’s Cinematic Stories and Russian Tales

Cinematic, dream-like shots. German photographer Frank Herfort has spent over a decade photographing the insides of various public spaces throughout Russia and Eastern Europe—spaces that, incidentally, are lacking a public. An architectural photographer by trade, Herfort’s personal work pays homage to the old-fashioned, Stalinist decor that still consumes many Russian interiors. Yet Herfort’s work brings a modern twist, seemingly imported from the outside, that eradicates markers of time or context and persuades the viewer to…

Cinematic Late-Night Tokyo in Masashi Wakui’s Photos

The city sorts itself between those who plan to stay in the city all night and those who must go home. The last train leaves at 12:30 pm, after which Tokyo becomes a lonely island of neon lights and cinematic moments. See more photos of Masashi on…

Civilization in Perspective: Capturing the World From Above

Civilization in Perspective: Capturing the World From Above

As recently as a century ago the idea of viewing the world from above was little more than a fantasy: the airplane was still in its infancy, with rocketry and satellites still decades into the future.
