Woman in laser burqa by Seamus Murphy



“I took this picture in February this year. I had been working on a project about Afghan women’s poetry and was trying to find images that were not the usual misery pictures of women in Afghanistan. I discovered this underpass in the city; a dark area with a little shop that was pumping out these lasers, and I wondered how they would look on a woman walking by in a burqa. I think the shot works because of the element of surprise. It’s trying to subvert not the burqa itself, but the image of the burqa, because I’m bored of the clichés around it.”

PhotoBot by Tommy Dykes is an alternative to the ‘point and shoot’ photography, building on people’s desire and passion to document aspects of their lives by taking and sharing photos online.  Using ultrasonic sound the product detects the location of people within the vicinity and then automatically takes a photo of them.  This automation allows people to enjoy an occasion, such as a party, in the knowledge that the occasion is being documented photographically without the need for them to do it themselves.

Wow, how my husband would HATE this :)

Nebulae, Beautiful Outer Space Photographs Shot in a Studio
Space photography, or, more accurately, the beautifully edited images that are obtained from telescopes like Hubble, seems to be everyone’s favorite sciencey thing to share online. For good reason, too.
Swiss photographer Fabian Oefner was able to make nebulae in his photo studio that you can barely tell from the real thing. Check the link above to find out how he did it, and for more awesome shots.
