Nikolay Tikhomirov, a Moscow based photographer, humbly describes his photography as "Art inside me".

The project contains a beautiful collection of women that appear weightless as they drift in mid-air, wearing dresses that take on a life of their own.

This interesting and canny project by Joseph Ford combines aerial photography with fashion, using a technique that I have never seen before. The concept is simple, yet ingenious.

Such a great project that has so much room for experimentation.

These spreads are taken from the recent redesign of Runner’s World Magazine, and demonstrate a strong mix of illustration, typography and photography. The magazine has taken some huge steps forward over the past year, departing from the formulaic template typical of fitness, health and wellbeing titles, and using a more creative, lateral approach to provide service to readers. Conceptual ideas are key to the design; the scope of the content is limited, so visually, it needs to be varied and original. The design plays a key role in keeping the reader engaged …
Here is the creative photography portfolio of Nicholas Scarpinato, a student currently studying film and photography. Nicholas works digitally and sometimes includes drawings/paintings on his works. “What I choose to photograph is images that tell a story, a secret that is waiting to be unearthed, a memory or a place in time.

Alberto Seveso, a talented designer and illustrator from Italy, he has been experimenting with a technique that includes documenting the mixture between water and ink and incorporating them into his design work.

Alberto is known for his more elaborate photo-manipulations and imagery, but this collection is what caught my eye.
