Researchers inflate healthy lungs and the lungs of a smoker. The difference is astonishing…

And the fact that horrible images like this don’t motivate most smokers to quit just speaks to what a powerful and terrible vice it is…

You can tell by the nervous faces of the people at the start of this video that they might be starting to regret the decision they made to participate in photographer Patrick Hall’s “Taser Photoshoot.”

And then the tasering begins, and all that nervous regret is confirmed…

To capture the following portraits, as you see in the video above, Hall gathered over a hundred subjects and zapped them with a stun gun in his studio…

Cops run stop sign, break woman’s neck, arrest HER for DUI, then cover it all up. But not anymore…

This is a crazy story, but justice is on its way…

When a police cruiser t-boned her little Toyota in February of 2013, Tanya Weyker broke her neck in four places and required surgery to fuse her vertebrae. As it turned out, her physical injuries would be among the least of her concerns.

Seeing her red eyes after the accident, the police ignored that this might be because she was crying, having just broken her neck. Instead, they arrested her for driving while intoxicated, though they were unable to perform a field sobriety test due to her injuries. Toxicology reports quickly proved Weyker was stone cold sober, but it took ten months before the Milwaukee County prosecutor officially declined to press charges against her.

This inventive photographer wanted to amuse his kids, so he built a camera for his tonsils

August 18, 2014 | No comments

Photographer Justin Quinnell‘s take on pinhole photography is more than a little out of the ordinary.

First, he built his own camera…using tinfoil and a film cartridge. “I originally invented the camera for its indestructibility,” he says, “throwing it off buildings and things like that.”

But then things got interesting.

It was after a few months of using it this way I for some reason pushed it into my mouth. Three years of degree-level photographic theory rushed through my brain and mouthy imagery evolved.

That’s right, he takes pictures out of the back of his mouth. Basically, he gave his tonsils a camera…

What’s the point, you ask?

He enjoys the challenge, since to get just the right exposure sometimes means standing still with his awkwardly placed camera for up to a minute. But more than that, the father-of-two considers his work a success if it can make kids laugh. I think you’ll agree that, by that standard, this is photography at its best…
