Fernan Federici’s amazing close-ups of bacteria and plants.

Fernan Federici, a postdoctoral student at the University of Cambridge, is pioneering the art of capturing the split-second process [cell and bacteria reproduction]. And the results are absolutely beautiful.

Federici is part of the Haseloff Lab, at Cambridge, where he and the titular Jim Haseloff work with confocal microscopy to photograph and model the growth of cells in plant tissue.

The YAKUZA

Photographer Anton Kusters:

'YAKUZA is a personal visual account of the life inside an inaccessible subculture: A traditional Japanese crime family that controls the streets of Kabukicho, in the heart of Tokyo, Japan. Through 10 months of negotiations with the Shinseikai, my brother Malik and I became one of the only Westerners ever to be granted this kind of access to the closed world of Japanese organized crime.

‘With a mix of photography, film, writing and graphic design, I try to share not only their complex relationship to Japanese society, but also the personal struggle of being forced to live in two different worlds at the same time; worlds that often have conflicting morals and values. It turns out not to be a simple black versus white relationship, but most definitely one with many, many, many shades of grey.’

I really want this book. 


Things Get Better- Scott Cambell's Prison Tattoo Machines

While working on a project in Mexico City several years ago, which involved documenting aspects of prison tattoo culture, Campbell discovered an array of devices, imaginatively pieced together by inmates. Using a motley combination of items, they had recreated specific mechanisms by appropriating materials that were readily accessible, such as electric razors, guitar strings, and toothbrushes. These reinventions replaced equipment otherwise unavailable to them, exemplifying perseverance over restrictions.
