For the past two years, French photographer Etienne Clotis has worked on a project named ICONIC. This interesting series of photos depicts the iconic people: musicians, painters, actors, fashion designers and many others who marked their era. With great fashion designer and make-up artist, Etienne turns his models into these people, and the resemblance is remarkable.
The appearance of social networks has undoubtedly redefined the notion of friendship. Maine-based photographer Tanja Alexia Hollander decided to get something more from her Facebook friends than just the photos they share online. She set out to photograph all of them in their homes, no matter where they are.
There are 626 people on Tanja’s friends list, and since 2011, she’s been traveling all over the globe to get to know them. She’s been meeting her Facebook friends in person, taking photos of them and sharing real life experience rather than virtual one.
What if you had to the power to bring BTTF’s Delorean into life. Flux capacitor and all? Photographer Felix Hernandez (previously) did just that with a model car. Of course, it’s more than just the model car, I mean, those are around $100 on Amazon, it’s the setting of the car and making it seem as if it hits 88 miles per hour on a table top.
Better yet, all effects were done in camera.
Photographer Rich Johnson is no stranger to Star Wars and space, a lot of his work revolves around space (and some not), but I think it’s safe to say that none of his previous works is as total and as encapsulation as his celebration or Rey portrayed by his daughter.
Rich tells DIYP a little bit about how this wondrous project came to be and how it was created:
Being a huge Star Wars fan, you could imagine my excitement when I took my family to see ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘. As my family and I neared the end of the movie, I realized the character Rey (played by Daisy Ridley) was going to be one of those characters that was going to be awesome all on her own, without the assistance of needless, gender-based dialogue. From start to finish, the focus was on her character, not her own self awareness of reality-based gender limitations.
Since I’m the father of an amazing three year old girl, these characters have become very important to me. I know it’s essential that my daughter focuses on being the best she can be, regardless of the many boxes the world will inevitably try to put her in, and she needs strong female heroes she can look up to. As soon as she watched ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’, she was hooked. When the movie hit Bluray she watched it over and over, and Rey has since become her favorite character, all without any parental coercion from me.

Looking for an innovative way to show off your latest and greatest photos? Try experimenting with personalized jewelry using pictures from your most memorable vacation or outing.
Think: dramatic landscapes, charming landmarks, pets and animals, signage from a great restaurant, or even that one family portrait where everyone miraculously has their eyes open.
For this tutorial, I’m using a photo of an African spotted eagle owl, taken during a recent visit to a raptor sanctuary, along with a picture of a lighthouse, a dead tree on the beach where I live, and a shot of my friend surfing from our last camping trip. Each piece is unique and the possibilities are endless!
Most craft supply stores carry various bezel blanks for resin. For this project, I chose blank pendant and ring shapes, but you can also find bracelet, earring and brooch blanks. If you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary, check out Etsy for some unique shape and size options.
To create these eye-catching charms, photos are fit into the blank bezel and covered with resin. These stunning, personalized pendants make excellent gifts and keepsakes. Impress your friends, and feel great about wearing such a fond memory so close to your heart.
When Rebecca Brown set out on a mission to create a self portrait project almost seven years ago, the photographer knew she had a story to document that would not only serve as a coping mechanism to herself, but also help raise awareness of the multiple mental illnesses she struggles with on a daily basis.
