Danielle van Ark photographs musicians backstage right after a show, capturing them “as pure as possible, before they start thinking about their image again.” … and somewhat annoyed looking.

This photo was the 1st place winner at the annual Science as Art competition in San Francisco, held by the Materials Research Society.

“Color-enhanced scanning electron micrograph of an overflowed electrodeposited magnetic nanowire array (CoFeB), where the template has been subsequently completely etched. It’s a reminder that nanoscale research can have unpredicted consequences at a high level.”

London: empty

German artist Gregor Graf strips his photography of London down to just architecture.

“The city as a living space is today no longer shaped by the individuals who inhabit it. At the textural level – with words, symbols, logos, directional and traffic signs, commands and prohibitions-the only elements allowed are those that serve the end of law or consumption. Free expression, such as graffiti or the unauthorized hanging of posters in the public space is punishable by law. The real city is increasingly becoming a personality-drained world of corporations and branding, coupled with the proliferation of rigorous regulations dictating how individuals are expected to behave.”
