After spending a few decades shooting high-concept high-fashion spreads for the likes of i-D, Vogue, W Magazine, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen and Christian Dior, photographer Nick Knight has recently launched a body of work in London, nearly 10 years in the making. Inspired by paintings from the Baroque period, Knight’s altered large-format photographs of elegant floral arrangements take on a psychedelic, gorgeously twisted liquidity. By exposing the prints to various combinations of heat, chemical and water treatments during the printing process, he’s able to interject each piece with an intriguing, painterly flair. (Via)

Nollywood is said to be the third largest film industry in the world, releasing onto the home video market approximately 1000 movies each year.

Gronsky travels all over Eurasia taking pictures that explore the notion of borders and dividing lines – both mental and real. The borders between suburbs and cities, personal and public space, life and death. Inside his snapshots people are part of the scenery like plastic figures in the architectural scale model. However he confesses, that there are two countries he is eager to photograph – Russia and China, because these are the places where people are as insignificant as pawns on the chess-board.
