Based in Copenhagen, Denmark, Kim Høltermand is a photographer with an interest in architecture, structures, and design. Much, though by no means all, of his work is black and white, including this photo, which is part of a stark, yet alluring, collection titled “The Greyness”, which you can see in full here.

Perhaps the idea is to view certain perspectives with an “outside eye”, so as to better appreciate that which might always be in front of you?

With photos taken in California, New Zealand, Santorini, France, and China, to name a few places, Tokyo based Viktor Chan is a photographer who has been going places in recent months. I somehow think I’m in the wrong line of work here.

It is estimated that in just three years, forty percent of the US workforce will be independent contractors. They will source much of their work by way of the gig, or access, economy. As a simple example, we’re talking about Uber drivers, or Airtasker workers.
I dare say the situation will be similar elsewhere, as more workers are forced, or choose, to seek employment away from conventional, or nine-to-five, workplaces. And while people may be busy working, they will find themselves performing a number of different tasks.

Some one million people in Beijing, China, call the maze of Cold War era atomic shelters that lie below the city’s streets, home. Not because a nuclear conflict is, touch wood, imminent, but because the residents, most of who have come from rural areas, looking for a better life, have no where else to go.
Local authorities have been trying to put an end to practice, but are thwarted by the lack of affordable accommodation elsewhere. Italian documentary photographer, Antonio Faccilongo, recently visited some of the shelters, and photographed those living there, and the conditions they must endure.

Polish photographer Maciej Leszczynski recently visited China, and spent some time in the south west city of Chongqing. The city, together with the surrounding municipality, is home to some thirty-two million people. No surprise then to learn it is also China’s most populous municipality.
Check out his Chongqing: Old City photo collection though, for glimpses of a side of the city that perhaps only locals are familiar with.
