    Before Instagram became everyone’s favorite camera app, Luigi Ghirri was capturing picturesque scenes from his day-to-day life in 1970s Northern Italy.

    Unlike Instagram however, Ghirri used Kodak’s legendary Kodachrome film, giving his work an unmistakeable look and feel.

  6. Israeli photographer Ziv Ish's series feature portraits of people “living on the fringes” of Israeli society, including prostitutes, drug addicts, and transsexuals. The images are raw, fascinating, and sometimes hard to view.

    “There are areas in [Tel Aviv] that drug addicts or many other extreme communities are very easy to find. I used to visit there almost every day and got to know every corner of the streets,” Ish said. “Very rough areas with an environment that is very hard to deal with, especially if you are really getting into the veins of the place and getting to know the people.”

  8. Artist, advertising art director and photographer Weilun Chong’s series, “Please Mind the Gap,” explores the space between the train and the platform in Singapore’s metro system. It’s a place that anyone hardly notices — but where things (like the artist’s cellphone) often get lost. "It sounds creepy, but I prefer to see myself as a quiet observer," Chong said.

  10. Photographer Lara Shipley carefully examines the U.S.-Mexico border and the various towns and their inhabitants in her series titled, “Coming, Going and Staying.”

    "Shipley’s stylistic approach is to use a blend of found and manipulated scenarios; some are staged, and others are shot as she finds them. This blending of actual, real-life documentary subjects with manipulated elements becomes interesting when applied to a region generally covered in a more straightforward documentary fashion."
