30 Wildlife Photos With A Near-Death Story Behind Them As Told By Photographer Couple Uri And Helle Løvevild Golman Interview With Artist

They say art is life. Now, while you could view it metaphorically in the sense that art shows you what life actually is, for many artists, it is quite literal—art is their life, and they dedicate it to the fullest.

Uri and Helle Løvevild Golman are a professional wildlife photographer couple who have dedicated their lives to drawing attention to the beauty of the animal kingdom of the world through their photography.

Not only is their photography simply awe-inspiring, but so is the story behind their work and behind their life together. During one of their photography expeditions, they were attacked by extremists, leaving Uri in a wheelchair. But this has never stopped the couple from pursuing their calling—animal conservation through action and photography.

Back in 2017, the two were in Gabon for a documentary. Unfortunately, at a local market, an extremist attacked Uri and stabbed him ten times—in the heart, liver, and several other locations. They fought off the extremist and were immediately rushed to the hospital, where Uri remained in critical condition. A bit over a week later, they were transported via medical plane back to Denmark.

The attack was so severe that Uri was left unable to speak, swallow, or walk—the prognosis wasn’t good. But the two never gave up, and after intense rehab, they were back at home. Uri gradually regained his speech, his ability to swallow, and movement in his arms, and is now relearning to walk. And the fire to help animals never went out.

Uri retells his experience after the attack: “My soul left the dead body and went to a beautiful tunnel starting out light blue, twirling like pieces of soft ice, pulling me up into bright white light. But my soul is simply too tough to die, and I had to return to my beautiful strong wife and wonderful daughters Silvia and Lilya. And, of course, I have to finish our mission—to protect the world’s wild places together with Helle. And I was lucky to be reincarnated in my own body, now a much wiser and more loving person than ever before.”#4

Helle and Uri met and fell in love in the Arctic during one of their expeditions. Since then, they have never parted. The two spend one half of their year traveling and documenting wildlife in the most remote regions of the world—from the arctic to Africa—though photography, and the remainder of the year sorting images, producing articles and books, and working on their conservation project called Project WILD.

Helle and Uri shared what a typical photographic expedition looks like for them: “We start with a one-month planning phase: booking tickets, choosing what equipment to bring, etc. Then we get to our destination, which has to be truly wild, and meet up with our local tracker and get the necessary permissions. And then the hard and sometimes excruciating work begins, but this is then by all means also the best part.”

They continued: “Then starts the waiting game, spending hours after hours waiting for the wildlife to show up. And suddenly some amazing creature shows up! We always try to create a voyeuristic look to our images to show that we are merely guests in their pristine habitat. The shutter goes ‘click click click,’ the adrenaline and endorphins rush through our brains because of the excitement of being so close to a real wild animal.”#7

“We always work by our own mantra: What you love, you will protect! Keeping up to our own standards of wanting to portray the animal’s soul to inspire others to want to protect them. In short, we believe that all animals are personalities that have a role to play in the whole ecosystem. And we need to protect all of them and the places they live in. If we are not ourselves as a species, then we will disappear from this still amazing planet,” elaborated the couple.

“Today we are aware that with this story behind us—we now have got a much more powerful voice for nature and conservation because we have now proved our willingness to fight for what we love because what you love you will protect.”#10

Like any photography project, this one comes with its own challenges, as explained Uri and Helle: “The most difficult part is patience, endurance, resilience, and, last but not least, to recognize a good photo when you see it. Always going the extra mile is of great importance.”

They continued: “We are humbled to say that our project finished one year before the pandemic started, so we were lucky to have finished all our travels before this crazy time began. That said, our Project WILD is a lifelong mission to protect the world’s last wild places and endangered wildlife. We will not stop our work until this planet is completely rewilded.”#13

Lastly, we asked the award-winning photographer couple to elaborate on their favorite expedition. They had this to say:

“Naming a favorite expedition is truly difficult because we love the entire planet and its glorious wildlife. But one special experience was when a wild coastal wolf came wandering straight towards us on a beautiful island bordering the Pacific Ocean in British Columbia, Canada. It walked on a stony beach with beautiful silver-colored driftwood timber. We were completely mesmerized by this wild creature’s confidence in us; it showed no fear. A clear sign that the wolves here are not hunted and are left completely alone.”

“It came up to Uri and licked his rubber boot and we were both crying with tears of joy and happiness. A few seconds later, it stuck its snout into the lens hood of our camera. It was so close and playful that we couldn’t use our big lenses and decided to switch and take pictures with our mobile phone. The playfulness of this lone female wolf is a clear sign of how a man met a dog and they became best friends.”

Be sure to check out Uri and Helle’s website, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube Channel for more wildlife goodness, and the couple has recently published a photo book of their best work which you can also find on their e-store.#16

This Photographer Creates Surreal And Magical Images With Animals (37 Pics)

Simen Johan is a Norwegian-Swedish contemporary artist, photographer, and sculptor living in New York City. He creates magical and surreal images with animals. The pictures look like they belong to a different dimension. Some images look pretty normal, but still manage to cause a feeling of eeriness, like something’s off. It’s hard to differentiate what is real and what’s an edit.

Simen uses different pictures to create a collage. He places animals in unexpected environments. Some images are so detailed, you don’t notice everything the first time you see them.

Photographer Documents The Bizarre Peculiarities Of Russia Using His iPhone (40 Pics)

Russian photographer, journalist, and social worker Dmitry Markov is known for his gritty images in which he depicts the macabre peculiarities of Russian life, mostly of those that are less well-off. The photographer explains that the reason why he’s drawn to the “ugly side of life” is because he considers himself to be a part of it. Half of the people he photographs he knows personally, and it shows since his photos always have an element of intimacy.

Born in Pushkin and currently residing in Pskov, the author has worked as a social worker focusing on youth problems and has been volunteering at an orphanage for 7 years, where he began to amass his body of work. But unfortunately, his camera got stolen there, and he decided to switch to something more comfortable, so he started using an iPhone. He says he doesn’t care about the quality, and if he could, he’d sketch everything by hand.

As strange as it may sound to some, the author likes it in his hometown of Pskov. He believes that for creative areas especially, a person can learn everything online, and there’s no need to get bunched up in an expensive megacity. But he travels all over Russia as well, with some of his photos being from Saint Petersburg, Moscow, Krasnoyarsk, various villages, and other places in the country. Regardless of the place, they all have Markov’s signature style to them. His photos always tell a narrative or two about the photo itself and what’s “outside” the photo: the everyday reality of people living in Russia. Markov has a great eye for composition, and his photos are always structurally sound, contrasting against the chaos that pertains to life seen in the pictures.#2

Even though the content of the imagery is self-evident, one struggles to find the exact words to describe what’s being seen in the picture. They have a little bit of candidness and intimacy, and a little bit of harsh honesty of realism, while at the same time, they’re bizarre, uncanny, and magical. It’s as paradoxical as the way of Russian life that he’s so immersed in capturing. It’s reminiscent of a painting genre known as magical realism, the only difference being the medium. This distinct style may one day be called “photographic magical realism.”#4

Photographer Uses A Pressure Washer To Create A Beautiful Mural On His Driveway

During the quarantine, many of us were forced to come up with new ways to entertain ourselves. Some people watched all the seasons of every TV show ever made, some started learning a new language, some learned to play the trombone, and some, apparently, “drew” a gorgeous piece of art on their driveway using a pressure washer. Well, at least one person did and his name is Ron Burkett.

Ron Burkett is a photographer and a YouTuber from Trussville, Alabama. A few months ago, the artist uploaded a video in which he showed the whole process of him “sculpting” an impressive wildlife-themed masterpiece on his driveway using a pressure washer. Let’s take a look!

More info: Instagram | youtube.com | ronburkett.zenfolio.com

The mural features giant trees, majestic wolves, rolling hills, and elk

“During the ‘stay at home’ order of the coronavirus pandemic of 2020, I decided to catch up on some projects around the house, including pressure washing the driveway,” reads the description of the video.

The mural features giant trees, majestic wolves, rolling hills, and elk. After Ron finishes the artwork, he captures it from a bird’s-eye view using his trusty drone.

Ron also took some creative pictures with the artwork using a drone

And it absolutely isn’t the only incredibly creative project Ron has realized. There are quite a lot of them. To see more of his creations, you can visit his Instagram profile.

Ron Burkett is a photographer from Trussville, Alabama

Since Ron is a photographer, most of his creative projects are photography-related. “My passion for photography goes back to my high school years (let’s just say late ’70s) and is something I continue to enjoy in my semi-retirement years. I do mostly commercial, news, and sports photography now as a job, but love travel and nature photography when I can choose my own subjects,” the artist writes on his website.

It seems like Ron truly enjoys taking photos using his trusty drone

“Nature and sports photography are challenging and great fun, but the opportunity to work with people to create images that will grow more precious with time is a special thing,” the artist writes on his website.

Sometimes, he even uses his drone to draw these gorgeous aerial light paintings

“Flew to the moon tonight”

Here’s what people on Instagram think about this impressive pressure washer art

20 Creative Tricks This Photographer Used To Capture His Incredible Photos

Jordi Puig Batlló, aka Jordi Koalitic, is a Barcelona-based photographer whose creative images have recently been taking the internet by storm. And even though the photos might look like they’re created in Photoshop or manipulated in some other way, the behind-the-scenes footage that the photographer always shares proves that all you need is some creativity and a little help from your friends.

In the past, Jordi used to work as a filmmaker and this reflects in his photos, which often look like screenshots from a film. In an earlier interview with INSIDER, the photographer said that everything can have an artistic point of view. Jordi says he can photograph just about anything and that the main point is finding the angle, the impact, and the perspective. Check out some of his incredibly creative photos in the gallery below, and if you want more, see our previous post here!

One day, this guy just kind of figured – “I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?” – and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that’s trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that’s too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Photographer Forms Landscapes Using Just Human Bodies And The Result Looks Majestic (13 Pics)

Carl Warner considers himself a ‘photographic illustrator’, one who creates something from nothing or transforms one thing into another rather than simply capturing it. And if you want to find out what that means, look no further than his series called Bodyscapes.

Through inventive and precise composition and lighting, Warner has sculpted monumental landscapes out of a well-built muscular body. That’s right, while most of the scenes appear to be composed out of several models, all of them were actually sculpted from a single person; the images were painstakingly stitched together from multiple shots.

Elbows and knees became mountains, backs and necks turned into valleys and desserts, and the illusions are really impressive. Continue scrolling and check them out for yourself.

This Canadian Photographer Captures The Unique Designs Of Soviet-Era Bus Stops

Christopher Herwig is a Canadian photographer who has been documenting the bizarre and unique Soviet-era bus stops since the early 2000s. The man says that the project began rather unexpectedly during his long-distance bike ride from London to St. Petersburg back in 2002. During the 1,800-mile ride, Christopher challenged himself to snap a photo every hour and soon began to notice the uniquely-designed bus stops on seemingly abandoned stretches of road. They inspired him to start the Soviet Bus Stops project and over the next few years, the photographer traveled over 18,000 miles in 14 different countries documenting the most unique bus stop designs he could find.

More info: herwigphoto.com | Facebook | Amazon | Instagram | Twitter

Canadian photographer Christopher Herwig has been documenting unique Soviet-era bus stop designs since the early 2000s

Christopher has his own thoughts on why the bus stop designs are all so unique. “The local bus stop proved to be fertile ground for local artistic experimentation in the Soviet period, and was built seemingly without design restrictions or budgetary concerns,” explained the photographer. “The result is an astonishing variety of styles and types across the region, from the strictest Brutalism to exuberant whimsy.”

During his travels, the photographer visited many countries of the Eastern Bloc, including the ‘stans (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan), Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Latvia, Lithuania, and more.

In 2015, Christopher published a collection of his photos in a photo book titled Soviet Bus Stops and it sold out like hotcakes. If you’d like to get a copy of the book yourself, you can purchase one here!

After the success of his first book, Christopher returned to the former Soviet Union once again in search of even more unique bus stops. He drove over 9,000 miles all across Russia and published his second book back in 2017. You can find it here!

Christopher’s latest project is a collection of Soviet metro stations, a photography book that he released back in 2019 – get your copy here!

See more unique bus stop designs captured by Christopher below!

Photographer Helps Women Get Rid Of Insecurities By Photographing Them Like Celebrities (30 Pics)

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” is an accurate quote by Margaret Wolfe Hungerford. Everyone views beauty differently: some find it in nature, some in the busy streets of cities. It especially varies when we’re talking about the beauty of people.

Sadly, sometimes people feel insecure in their own bodies. Maybe it’s because of some body issues—scars, age. There are many factors that can bring our confidence down. Then we can’t let our inner beauty shine through.

Emily London is a photographer with the goal of getting rid of any insecurities women have and making them feel like the queens they are. She helps women feel confident in their own skin by giving them incredible makeovers and then capturing their portraits. The women get transformed into models and Hollywood divas that could easily be on the most popular magazine covers or movie screens.

This is some more information about Emily from her website: “I know what beautiful looks like. I can see yours. I know how to bring it forward, and how to capture it with my camera. I also know what it’s like to be a woman who struggles to see her own beauty. That’s why I’ve made it my mission to create the most beautiful portraits you have ever had. I want to show you how beautiful you are; to help you reconnect with the woman you see in your portraits, and be awed by her again.” Emily is based in Salt Lake City. She has two children and a German shepherd. Her hobbies include playing the ukulele.#2

I Quit My Job In Finance And Have Been Photographing Wildlife Ever Since, Here Are My 30 Favorite Pics

One day, while visiting the Natural History Museum, by accident, I wandered into the wrong exhibit hall. To my surprise, I had entered the exhibition for the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year. I was astounded by the winning photographs. I was transported visually to a world I had never witnessed before. I was mesmerized by the beautiful artworks on show—in particular, the winning image, Blue Iceberg by Cherry Alexander.

This wildlife exhibition was an uplifting experience and one I would repeat every year. Little did I know the profound effect it would have on my life in years to come.

After working in the finance industry in the City of London for 15 years, I needed a balance in my life. Wildlife photography became my yang! I quit my job.

And in 2005, Africa became the new chapter in my life. The sheer size and magnitude of this continent were overwhelming. From navigating the forests of Bwindi and climbing the peaks of Kilimanjaro through to meandering along the red dunes of the Kalahari, I started photographing Africa.

It may be a cliché, but it is true—photography has become my life. No matter where I am, my mind’s eye is taking photographs. It has taught me to see the world in a different light, and for that, I am eternally grateful.

We never know what road we may take in life or the catalyst that changes our life forever. For me, it was a serendipitous wrong turn into the exhibit hall of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year, the world’s most prestigious wildlife photography competition, which incidentally I have won an astonishing three times.
