Photographer Takes Pictures Of Famous Landmarks Facing The Wrong Direction

Whenever anyone visits a famous landmark, the first thing they do is take a picture of themselves standing in front of it or just of the site itself. Imagine how many pictures there are out there of the same places, from slightly different angles, but all showing the same thing. But what happens if you have a different perspective, and choose to do something a little, well... backward? Photographer Oliver Curtis decided to mix things up when he visited famous places and took his photos from the wrong direction. He wanted to "turn around, and see a new aspect of the over-photographed sites of the world - to gaze elsewhere and to favor the incidental over the monumental." His collection of pictures seeks to draw attention to the fact that "It is easy to forget that these attractions are also places of work, staffed by janitors, security guards, cleaners and office guards who have a lack of awe born from daily exposure. Yet, despite not being present, the images are still suffused with their aura."

Check out the incredible pictures below, and see how many you would recognize if the names weren't written in!

Artist Travels To Beautiful Locations To Paint The Pattern of His Own Shirt

Art is a difficult topic to dicsuss because it's all a matter of taste; what one person finds beautiful, another person finds vulgur. It's all relative. But you know what isn't as relative? Humor. OK, it is, but what you're about to see is objectivally funny. Artist Hank Schmidt in der Beek and photographer Fabian Schubert have started a project where they travel to beautifully scenic locations, set up an easel and begin to paint. But Hank doesn't paint what he sees. No, he paints the design of the shirt he is wearing, while Fabiamn photographs him doing it. This hysterical take on classic outdoor painting gave us a laugh, so we thought we'd share it with you. Enjoy!

Photographer With Vitiligo Takes Stunning Pictures Of Women With Same Condition

Unfortunately, people tend to stare when they come across anyone who appears to be physically distinctive in some way. It's just human nature, but we unknowingly perpetuate stigmatization of being 'different'. It's not a good thing! Photographer Elisabeth Van Aalderen is trying to create beauty out of our differences, by capturing pictures of women who have Vitiligo (a skin condition that causes patches of skin to lose its pigment cells (melanocytes), resulting in the discoloration of patches in different areas of the body). Seeing the positivity in all types of physical appearances spreads the message to these women and the general public, that everyone is beautiful, no matter what they look like on the outside.

Photographer Captures Stunning Images Of The World's Only Known Pink Manta Ray

Off the coast of Australia, near Lady Elliot Island, the world's only known pink manta ray has once again been spotted! 

Nicknamed "Inspector Clouseau," after the the main character of the classic "The Pink Panther," was photographed by Kristian Laine

According to Laine, she was original confused when seeing the pink manta, believing the ray's vibrant hue was due to a camera malfunction. Laine told Australian Geographic, "I was in the middle of a manta train with seven other mantas. I was looking through my viewfinder and was thinking it's weird that one of the mantas looks pink. I actually thought my strobes were playing up, making the manta look pink."

When she returned to land, Laine discovered that the sighting was authentic, and later took to Instagram to share photos of the "amazing and absolutely unforgettable encounter."

The last, and first, time the rare manta ray was spotted was in 2015, by diving instructor Ryan Jeffery off Lady Elliot Island (once again). 

The pink coloring on this manta ray remains a mystery. Project Manta's Asia Armstrong said, "The working theory is that it is just a different and very unique expression of the melanin, but that is still to be confirmed."
