In honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, we’re celebrating all things British this weekend. However, one aspect of the UK that it’s hard to feel so celebratory about is the rainy weather. That said, we’re loving how photographer Gavin Hammond makes something beautiful out of the remnants of Britain’s often-pretty-crap weather. Hammond takes photos of London’s iconic sights as reflected in puddles.

These photos of Maddie the Coonhound by Theron Humphrey are amazing and totally adorable. Maddie is either a very good sport or a victim of superglue…she’ll stand patiently on anything!
Theron Humprey also has another interesting photo project in progress called This Wild Idea, in which he is currently traveling the U.S. and documenting people lives in photographs.
I would like to introduce you to my brother Tim.
I am in love with his photography and view of the world.
His minimalist approach fascinates me—versus my “maximalism”! I own quite a few of his pieces, which are hanging all around my new house.
The other day I had visitors over from Germany and they kept exclaiming, “Oh, I really like this. Who is it by?”
And the answer was always, “My talented brother Tim.”

Buenos Aires-based photographer, Irina Werning has started an ongoing series of photographs called “Back to the Future” in which she has subjects re-enact childhood photographs. The clothing and backgrounds are amazingly and painstakingly re-created. Faces may change over time, but certain qualities of appearance and personality always shine through.
“I love old photos,” Irina writes on her website. “I admit being a nosy photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… by the way, this project made me realise I’m a bit obsessive…”

This is a really fun website where the artist sees things out and about and then adds in a “scenario” around them…

Renowned South African photographer Jodi Bieber has a powerful series of photos called Real Beauty that is definitely worth checking out!
The photos depict women who live around Bieber’s own community and she encouraged all of the women she photographed to explore their own personalities and fantasies for their shots.
All women have “Real Beauty,” Bieber explains. “Real” is something we all possess just in the fact of our existence. “Real” is every woman in her own uniqueness.
This body of work was “inspired by a number of events,” describes Bieber, “the primary being my own life. My forties have brought a feeling of more comfort within my own skin than when I was younger even though my body shape has shifted dramatically.”
Each shoot was a collaboration between Bieber and her subject. The women were photographed their own homes and were encouraged “to explore their own identity in relation to beauty and to live for a couple of hours in an environment of elements of fantasy.”
No photoshop has been used. Instead the photos gave each woman the space to create a fantasy image of themselves as they are.
