Digital studies, trying to get a good feel for tigers. These are the tidier ones. Mostly done off of deviantart stock photos I looked up under the ‘newest’ section.

'FOOD MAPS' - Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin map the world’s most famous foods.

Brooklyn-based photographer Henry Hargreaves (check out this amazing Tumblr!) and food stylist Caitlin Levinmotivated by a passion for travel, have created ‘Food Maps’, a playful cartography series of geographical locations made out of the iconic foods that best represent them. Painstakingly crafted with real, unadulterated food, the silhouettes are packed with edible materials — corn in various forms fills the United States, vibrantly colored kiwis compose New Zealand and biscuit bits build the United Kingdom.

tsingy de bemaraha national park, a unesco world heritage site in western madagascar, is home to lemurs who, with thick pads on their hands and feet, navigate this six hundred square kilometer labyrinth of three hundred foot tall razor sharp limestone pillars.

photographer stephen alvarez (previously featured) remarked, “it’s an unbelievable experience to watch them [as] they jump like acrobats from the sharp pinnacles” — a feat made more remarkable given the vast chasm bellow.

in the malagasy language, tsingy means “where one cannot walk barefoot,” and alvarez noted that that given the difficulty of the terrain, it takes an entire day to walk half a mile.

nearly impenetrable, the area is described as a refuge within paradise. lemurs, like ninety percent of the species in madagascar, are endemic to the island, and thanks to the isolation of the refuge have evolved into tsingy’s eleven distinct species, including the decken’s sifaka seen here.
