“…in the future, at the schools Le Corbusier will be taught on the same level as Galilee, Descartes and Leonardo da Vinci. It will be discovered, that he was not only one of the great geniuses of world history, but also a creator in diverse activities and that he has also clearly marked a change in our civilisation….”

Erik Johansson is a photographer and retoucher from Sweden that is currently living in Berlin. For him, every picture is an adventure and the contrast between those two worlds are his source of inspiration.

“To me photography is just a way to collect material to realize the ideas in my mind. An idea always starts with a sketch. I get inspired by things around me in my daily life and all kinds of things I see. Although one photo can consist hundreds of layers I always want it to look like it could have been captured.”

You can find here a selection of the pictures I like the most; one picture can tell so much:

One of the most liberal newspaper in Britan, The Guardian is targeting now new audience in America. The newspaper will be launched soon on the US. In order to atract their new audience, they have created a very stricking advertising campaing together with the illustrator Noma Bar. The posters depict both sides of main political debates in the US, such as gun control, internet privecy, the use of condoms in the adult film industry and women in the military. Each illustration represents one opinion of the issue. When the poster is flipped, illustrates the opposite view. Very smart way to integrate the 2 different opinions.

People are encouraged to take a photo of the side they support and upload the photo to their Instagram and/or Twitter account .

The Origins of The Guardian Newspaper
The Manchester Guardian was founded by John Edward Taylor in 1821, and was first published on May 5 of that year. The paper’s intention was the promotion of the liberal interest in the aftermath of the Peterloo Massacre and the growing campaign to repeal the Corn Laws that flourished in Manchester during this period. The Guardian was published weekly until 1836 when it was published on Wednesday and Saturday becoming a daily in 1855, when the abolition of Stamp Duty on newspapers permitted a subsequent reduction in cover price (to 2d) allowed the paper to be published daily.

A visual artist with a passion for refractography, time-lapse and light painting photography, is without any doubts Rob Turney, a very talent photographer for refractography. He has made the refractography a beautiful art. See here below some of his pictures:


This style of photography needs no retouch, no enhancements, as it’s the reflective light that does everything.

Do you want to learn more? Watch this tutorial of Rob Turney. It shows how to create beautiful and interesting photos with a camera, a tripod, a light source and a refractive object. This is something you can try next week-end if is still raining….

Refraction is the change in direction of a propagating wave, such as light or sound, in passing from one medium to another in which it has a different velocity, as per Collins dicctionary definition.
