The Krubera Cave, located in a disputed territory along the border of Georgia in eastern Europe is the world’s deepest cave. The official recorded depth of the deepest part of Krubera is 2,197 meters or 7,208 feet. For a bit of perspective that's six-and-a-half Eiffel Towers stacked on top of each other end to end. These stunning photos give just a taste of its real scale and grandeur. Since the Krubera Cave’s initial discovery in 1960 scientists have attempted to explore and catalogue its secrets. The current official depth of the Krubera Cave was recorded by Ukrainian diver Gennadiy Samokhin in 2012. Just imagine six Eiffel Towers stacked on top of each other. Wow. Sc...

What This Photographer Did Will Give You A Brand New Perspective On Where You Live

Entertainment
With the term "wanderlust" becoming somewhat of a buzzword, we often forget that our hometowns can host some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. People in the rolling hills of Ireland long to see the Manhattan skyline, people in Manhattan travel thousands of miles to see the French Riviera, and locals in Marseille want nothing more than to dip their feet in the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean. It seems as though everyone yearns to see all the beauty this planet has to offer without noticing the incredible sights that they pass by every day. That's exactly why Canadian photographer Trevor Pottelberg challenged himself to capture the beauty of his homeland in an eye-opening new series. This visually stunning project was born from a sense of frustration. ...

Have you ever wondered would be like after the collapse of civilization? Personally, it's something I try not to think about. However, urban explorer and photographer Freaktography isn't like me. For his most recent series, Freaktography grabbed a pair of old-style gas masks and brought his daughter to an abandoned building. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); There, the two attempted to imagine what life without all the trappings of modern civilization might look like.

Japanese photographer FUKE transforms the world into a colorful wonderland by just using his camera.. He starts by capturing images of ordinary places around his home in Sanuki and then, as he writes on his website, he "makes his own colors with his feelings and his emotions." In an interview with Life Treasure Collector earlier this year, FUKE elaborates that he was inspired to take up photography in 2003 when friends would visit him and comment on the beauty of his town. It's the kind of natural beauty that usually goes overlooked by those who see it every day. He decided to highlight the features of his town in an incredibly creative way. By shooting snowy landscapes at night, he creates an other-worldy aspect to the otherwise "b...

This Is What Thanksgiving Would Look Like If Famous Artists Prepared Your Meal

Entertainment
Personally, I see every piece of food I'm about to chow down on as its own beautiful work of art. This photographer, however, takes that a little more literally in her Thanksgiving series.Titled "Thanksgiving Special" and "Thanksgiving Special: Seconds," Hannah Rothstein recreates the traditional meal with a whole new perspective. "This series turns the Thanksgiving meal on its head," she explains, "giving people reason to reconsider that which they thought they knew." Channeling the themes of famous artists over the years, she transforms all the turkey, stuffing, and sauce into impressive interpretations of Picasso, Pollock, and more. Each plate took between 30 minutes and two hours to arrange, depending on the artist's complexity. I think you'll agree, she totally nailed it again and aga...

When a young person dies, it's an occasion for us all to mourn and reflect on our own mortality. Someone passing right in the prime of their life, with so many possibilities in front of them, is one of life's biggest tragedies.

June 6 will mark the seventy year anniversary of D-Day, when the Allied soldiers landed on the beaches of Normandy. That operation turned the tide against the Axis powers in World War II. Today, those beaches that were ravaged by war and such a crucial point in the battle are being used by tourists as a place to soak up the sun. They are such beautiful places, it’s hard to imagine what they looked liked on D-Day.
