The front yard garden at Zoe's place, while not exactly as fussy and meticulous as a French formal garden, is nevertheless an orderly place, one that provides a welcome respite from the hectic city outside. Zoe contrasts her steady, reliable botanical friends with her erratic, hormonal classmates at high school, who never seem to do what the teachers want. With plants, she says, all she has to do......read more

During a full moon in Tenerife, the biggest of the Canary Islands, Barcelona-based filmmaker Iker Elorrieta headed into the surf with his camera to shoot a moonlit shred session with surfers Adam Melling, Julian Wilson and Kolohe Andino.

Exploring Agua Prieta, Mexico after dark

Like many people, I have an innate fascination with international borders --  what they represent and what they separate. Perhaps driving across the border into Mexico at dusk for a scenic drive isn't the best idea, but I have had worse.  These images were collected through an evening in March 2013 across the US border at Douglas, AZ. Once across the border, I took off rambling through......read more

For his 2009 Light After Dark project, UK photojournalist Toby Smith used extremely long exposures to shoot England's 32 coal power stations at night. We wouldn't normally use the word "beautiful" to describe coal stacks, but in Smith's capable hands, they become just that. Portrayed in a soft, tranquil light, the maligned industrial complexes become spaces of serenity,......read more
