Investigating selfies and self-portraits using a mix of theoretic, artistic and quantitative methods, Selfiecity compared photos taken in five major cities around the world – Bangkok, Berlin, Moscow, New York and Sao Paulo.
The group recently added London to the mix, analyzing 152,462 Instagram photos, and the results are pretty cool.
Now that he has completed the project and released a book containing high-altitude aerial night-time photos from 10 iconic cities, Leo Laporte of The New Screen Savers interviewed Vince about his experiences up in the sky.
Other than discussing some of the technical aspects of the shoots, Vince also discusses why these photos will never be captured again.

This is one I’ll definitely be filing under the “Why didn’t I think of that?!” category…A U.K. based photographer and professional image retoucher by the name of Barry Craig, had the ingenious idea to attach a plastic Superman toy to his Phantom 3 drone and take it for a fly-about over London’s Victoria Park.
Oh, gosh, it’s hard not to love.
Check out the footage below–or on Barry Craig’s Instagram–while I make a quick run to Toys ‘R Us to pick me up some new action heroes.
As part of his AIR project, which aims to show the world is connected by creating outstanding nighttime aerial photos; Vincent Laforet recently shot some incredible photos of London from a helicopter.
The project began with a set of photos above New York city that went viral, and has since covered several more cities around the world.
Other than London and Barcelona, which were both photographed earlier this month, Laforet will be spending the next few days capturing the scenic night views of Berlin, Paris and Venice.
A behind-the-scenes video of the Los Angeles shoot, as well as a video detailing Laforet’s workflow, have been released and can be seen below.
Photographer and parkour athlete Jason Paul has created a stunning collection of images with his “Man & Mortar” project. The images are inspired by the poses of ancient statues and monuments while using London as its canvas.
Jason Paul photographed a fellow parkour athlete and World Champion Free Runner Tim Shieff. In his review of the project, Jason states:
Last november, at the scene of a deadly collision, a photographer on the scene got into it with an on-duty officer who approached him about his camera. He recorded the chat they had under the officer’s nose, and then uploaded it to the internet. The video gained a good amount of attention, showing the officer acting aggressively, and now the police department he’s from has decided to uphold the complaint put against him.
