With this new work, Barcelona-based photographer Max Esteban turns his camera toward recent cutting-edge technology—utilized in the creation and communication of art—that is now considered obsolete.
Through a time-consuming process, he disassembles apparatus such as film projectors, 35mm film cameras, VHS tape players and record players. Piece-by-piece, the parts are painted white, the machines are then reassembled and photographed at different stages of being re-built. The photographed layers are themselves assembled into a single image, resulting in x-ray-like photographs that are reminiscent of architectural cyanotypes.
Photographer Mark Mawson has published a wonderful series of fourteen new underwater ink photographs entitled Aqueous Fluoreau. The images are stunning not only for their vibrant colors but their almost sculptural appearance. His previous projects from the same family, Aqueous and Aqueous II are also incredible and worth your time. If you liked this, also check out the work of Alberto Seveso. (via behance)

This is an amazing Kickstarter photo project by NEWSWEEK photo editor Cara Phillips — featuring haunting color portraits of the insides of plastic surgery offices, shot using the original lighting setup in each surgery room. Cara was a child model; ultimately, she turned her lens on the beauty industry in an effort to question the role beauty plays in our culture. See her Kickstarter page for Singular Beauty — and donate even the smallest bit ($1) if you can.
