Photographer Captures Moped Delivery Drivers In Hanoi Before Theyre Banned

Two-wheeled vehicles such as motorcycles or scooters are the most popular means of transportation in Southeast Asia. If you ever visited a country like Vietnam, you probably noticed that’s the choice for many locals. In high-density cities such as Hanoi, these vehicles help locals navigate through narrow streets and tiny alleys, save time for parking as you don’t need to park them like a regular car and also are surprisingly useful for transporting cargo.

With the ever-growing hype around cosplay, people are getting utterly creative with the tools they use: from budget-friendly household items to food.

Japanese Illustrator Imagines A World Where Humans Live Among Giant Animals (30 Pics)

It seems the artist likes to indulge himself with illustrations that depict soft and cuddly animals – pandas, rabbits, dogs and the like – although, it’s pretty evident that the cats are the apples of the artist’s eye. The atmosphere in the pictures is almost always etherial and peaceful, complete with story-telling elements in their compositions. Many of the illustrations are marked with soft sunshine filtering through various objects, including leaves and windows. #2 A world where you can surrender yourself to sleep on a giant ball of fur is a world where you wouldn’t be able to get any work done. A perfect world. Fun fact: did you know that in traditional Japanese architecture, a door, window or room …

Lothlenan began his series while doing a study of ‘Mr. and Mrs. Andrews’ by Thomas Gainsborough in his free time as a way to strengthen his painting skills.

Italian Artist Recreates Famous Roman Emperors Through His Realistic Sculptures

What’s the first thought that comes to mind when you think about Rome? Perhaps it’s the iconic ancient Roman gladiatorial arena – the Colosseum, or an excavated heart of the Roman Empire also known as Roman Forum, which was the center of day-to-day life in Rome many centuries ago. And although Rome has all the right to boast about its architectural heritage, today’s topic is not about that. A young Italian sculptor and the person behind the Cesares de Roma project took it upon himself to commemorate three notorious rulers from ancient times of Rome – Caesar, Augustus, and Nero – by sculpting hyperrealistic busts for each of them. The project was borne out of necessity to spread classic Roman …

To Be A Man: My Portrait Series Challenging The Concept of Toxic Masculinity

Toxic masculinity, a variation of masculinity, refers to the socially-constructed attitudes that describe the masculine gender role as violent, unemotional, sexually aggressive, and so forth. It restricts the kinds of emotions and characteristics that are socially acceptable for boys and men to express. Toxic masculinity is a variation of masculinity that has become the standard upon which the “real man” is defined but also by which ones masculinity can be challenged (The Good Men Project). This topic is no more relevant today than it has been in the past, the only difference is that now it is being discussed more openly. My intent with this photo series is not to create anti-male sentiments or attack masculinity but, show that it’s …
