Born in Switzerland, Hans Mauli was a graphic designer who worked with Herb Lubalin and designed the typeface for the World Trade Center signage. From 1971 to 1991 he worked as an advertising photographer in Paris, after which he moved to the United States and began to focus on fine art photography. When he began his photographic career he did not have access to a darkroom, so most of his early work was not printed until much later. See more of them here.

Shot at mining quarries and ship breaking yards around the world, these photographs by Edward Burtynsky seem both familiar and otherworldly.
Nature transformed through industry is a predominant theme in my work. I set course to intersect with a contemporary view of the great ages of man; from stone, to minerals, oil, transportation, silicon, and so on. To make these ideas visible I search for subjects that are rich in detail and scale yet open in their meaning.
They almost feel like set photos from the most amazing science fiction/fantasy motion picture from the 70s to me. See the rest here.
Beautiful, lush Kodachrome photos from the 40s. Kodachrome was the legendary color film popular among photographers like Steve McCurry, who shot the final roll after it was discontinued in 2009. See the rest of the set here.
Ever since I first saw The Thing I’ve had a fascination with Antarctica. Something about the brutal conditions, heavy machinery and isolation seem like the ultimate setting for discovery. These photos come from the flickr of John Jacobsen who photographed them while “helping to hunt for neutrinos in Antarctica.” I love the idea that these images could be “just another day at the office” for somebody; even the names for everything sound badass: Dark Sector Lab, Destination Alpha, Autonomous Geophysical Observatory, etc.
