Francois Prost is a Parisian graphic designer, art director and photographer. Today, we’re sharing a series of images he shot specialising in, you guessed it, strip clubs in America’s South. We love the composition of these shots and the stillness he’s managed to capture, despite the goings on inside.

When is a wedding photographer not a wedding photographer? It sounds like one of those crazy riddles or jokes, but this is something photographer Ian Weldon has asked himself and we feel, answered very well!
He began his career photographing weddings, as many budding photographers do, but rather than fall into the cliche and expected style of wedding photography, he turned the genre on its head. His photographs show the real things that go on at weddings, the crazy moments, the mess, the fun and the love. Speaking for ourselves, we would love to see more wedding photography looking like this!

We’re loving the trend we’ve noticed lately of web design taking cues from classic publication design. It creates a unified way to understand and take in content that we think is really useful. Yes, multimedia design means you can do literally ‘anything’ you want – but there’s something to be said about paying homage to traditional design to give your work a feeling of gravitas.
This website for photographer, Elena Iv-skaya, has the best of both. Not only is the design classic and believable, it also uses some really nifty scrolling and animation effects that you need to see for yourself to appreciate.

Cengiz Yar is a photographer based in New York city. For the last few years, much of his focus has been on Iraq and the aftermath of all the fighting that has taken place there. This series of work Safe Home, looks at the efforts of the local people to remove mines and other Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) from their surroundings, creating a poignant set of documentary photographs that stay with you long after you’ve seen them.

What a fun idea from TBWA Zurich! This is as simple as advertising gets – no copy whatsoever and only the logo.
We love how this uses the idea of eating something ‘boring’ and thinking about something tastier or more rewarding (like McDonald’s of course) can be communicated using just the logo. It shows what you can do when a brand is as entrenched as McDonald’s is in consumers’ psyches.
This has definitely been a bit of a theme this week, as Monday’s post where we highlighted an outdoor campaign by Coca-Cola is using a very similar visual approach: Taking iconic parts of your branding and creating minimalist, powerful marketing messaging. You can see that post here.
Leonardo Scotti is an Italian fashion photographer based in Milan. If you’re looking for striking, bold imagery – he is the man you speak to! Whether it’s slightly abstract compositions or powerful images of women standing in front of burning branches – you can feel Scotti’s work immediately.

We love this work by Jimmi Ho, a photographer based in Hong Kong. This project, Laundry Art, takes a look at a very specific subject: The way people dry their clothes in Hong Kong. Being such a populous city, space is obviously at a premium. This means people have to find inventive ways (and inventive places) to dry their laundry. It’s so interesting to think that details as mundane as laundry can really say a lot about a city.
