‘Dimensionless’ architectural photographs


A photographer has captured Texas skylines in a stunning new series of images.

Nikola Olic’s portfolio, ‘Dimensionless’, examines the interesting architectural facades that punctuate the landscape, showcasing the Reunion Tower and Frank Gehry’s IAC Building amongst others.

By manipulating the facades in his photographs, Olic gives the buildings a dimensionless, disorientating feel.

Striking street photos of NYC in the ’70s and ’80s


RRobert Hermanobert Herman’s amazing photographs of New York have been released ten years after he completed the project.

The photographs capture the lives of New Yorkers from 1978 to 2005, as the city was going through major changes, on Kodachrome color film.

Herman said: “these photos tell an authentic story of New York City: not a series of skyline clichés but real New Yorkers living and working in their own neighbourhoods” .

The artist published a book of his ‘The New Yorkers’ photos thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign that started in 2011.
