Hungarian photographer Adam Magyar has taken that experience and transformed it into something personal, contemplative, and mesmerizing with his “Stainless” series, which exists somewhere between still photographs and slow-motion films: The idea of the intersection between stillness and motion was precisely the inspiration for Magyar’s project.

Treasured Cameras is a short photo series by photographer Julian Calverley that celebrates this aesthetic beauty in an ironic way: by taking portraits of vintage cameras using an...

Behind the Scenes: RoboCop Photo Shoot

Behind the Scenes: RoboCop Photo Shoot Like any professional photographer who loves what they do, Douglas Sonders decided to use his very rare weekend off from shooting for commercial clients to work on a personal photography project. Since the original movie came out, Sonders has been obsessed with RoboCop, so doing a RoboCop themed shoot was like a dream come true: After flying to Arizona and road-tripping through the state in a rental car, Sonders finally met up with Reiko, a Phoenix resident who just so happened to have a replica RoboCop costume and squad car. A warehouse in Phoenix was used as a backdrop for many of the...

NYC Ballet Enlists Street Art Photog’s Help to Make an Epic Impression on Its Patrons If you walk into the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center right now, you’ll very quickly find your jaw on the floor alongside the reason for its gaping state.
