From the photographic project No worldview faces by Chinese artist Dong Wensheng
“My impressions of people in my life are an amalgamation of every experience that I have shared with them. No person is perfect, and no memories are all one sided. These images represent the overall idea of a person. The good and the bad, an entire lifetime of knowing someone in a fraction of a second.
This imagery takes the myriad of experiences and expectations and blends all of them together. A single image is created by layering hundreds of images of a single person in order to create a ‘sense’ of that person, and how I see them. Some of the images end up being representational, while others become more ethereal, which is illustrative of the variety of people in my life.”

World’s major cities as they would appear at night without light pollution from the series Villes Enteintes aka Darkened Cities by French photographer Thierry Cohen
Cohen’s method is original and precise and harkens back to the methodologies employed by early 19th century photographers like Gustave Le Grey. He photographs the world’s major cities, seeking out views that resonate for him and noting the precise time, angle, and latitude and longitude of his exposure. As the world rotates around its axis the stars that would have been visible above a particular city move to deserts, plains, and other places free of light pollution. By noting the precise latitude and angle of his cityscape, Cohen is able to track the earth’s rotation to places of atmospheric clarity like the Mojave, the Sahara, and the Atacama desert. There he sets up his camera to record what is lost to modern urban dwellers. (source)
