When I came across the work of French photographer Denis Darzacq it really struck me. The photos that he takes of his subjects floating in the air are not only baffling, but also quite eerie. The spaces that he chooses really add to the almost supernatural feel of the photos. I almost wish I hadn’t seen how he does it, it kind of spoils the mystery, but it you want to see for yourself check out a short documentary about the process. It’s less of an “illusion” than you might think.

LOOKBOOK.nu is a comprehensive, user driven blog that looks at the world’s youth and the styles that they wear. Users are able to post photos of their favorites outfits and styles as well as view, and post comments about other users’ looks. Surprisingly the site has very few shots-from-above-in-the-bathroom-Myspace-style photos, and lots of shots that look like they were taken right out of a magazine fashion spread. The photos are tagged with information about the user’s clothing, and users can search through different groups, as well as labels, designers and categories. Whether you are looking for inspiration from others, or a exhibitionist fashionista, LOOKBOOK.nu is a site to check out.
Poladroid is one of the coolest little applications I have found in a long time. For those of us who were saddened when Polaroid announced they would be discontinuing the production of their film, Poladroid helps fill a small part of that hole left in your heart. The application, which is only available for Mac OSX at the moment (available for Windows in November), creates very realistic looking “fauxlaroids” of any digital photo. Simply drag and drop your photo into the neat little app and it virtually processes the photo for you. It’s available for free download, and they also have a Flickr group full of cool photos.

24-year old Shunsuke Iwata is responsible for the beautiful photographs found in his website. The photos are in themes, ranging from beautiful scenery to delicate portraits. The photos also have a very clean, immaculate feel to them due to the brightness and use of natural sunlight. Style, solitude, and an understated happiness radiate from the photographs and these will make you want to go back to the website over and over again.
