That led us to Harbinger, an older Rugen Flickr set with a much different tone. Set in stark black-and-white, the photos offer ominous perspectives of Earth from land, water and sky.

Aerial perspectives from Phillip Kalantzis Cope

At SHFT, we're not shy about admitting our love for aerial photography.

They're actually screen grabs from Google Earth. But that doesn't make them any less freakishly amazing. From eastern......read more

Edward Burtynsky: Oil Spill

read
Award-winning photographer continues his documentation of our dependence on oil.

In 1997, Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky had an epiphany: "It occurred to me that the vast, human-altered landscapes that I pursued and photographed for over twenty years were only made possible by the discovery of oil and the mechanical advantage of the internal combustion engine. It was then that I began the oil project." For the next decade Burtynsky set himself to......read more
