The European Space Agency's ATV-5 supply vessel docked a couple of days ago with the International Space Station. Not just loaded with cargo for the ISS, the ATV-5 is also carrying newly developed camera technology which will record the final moments of ATV-5's breakup on re-entering Earth's atmosphere. The Break-Up Camera was designed in only nine months and will relay images from the last 20 seconds of the vessel's life to a capsule that can survive the extreme heat of reentry. Learn more

Murdo Macleod shines a light on authors at the 2014 Edinburgh international book festival in pictures
Photographer Murdo Macleod shines a light on authors at the 2014 Edinburgh international book festival.
I made this in 2013 using a well-trained albino python and a model I've worked with for years. Although the model trusted the snake's trainer completely, it wasn't easy for her, but she was attracted by the challenge. Throughout the shoot, the trainer was standing by just out of the frame ready to stop the whole thing if it went wrong.
I think she reached a sort of superior level of meditation, which was good, since I wanted her face to have a very inward-turned expression. That was something she concentrated on, but to maintain it when you have a snake crawling over you is really admirable.Continue reading...

Samsung has announced the Galaxy Alpha - the first Galaxy smartphone with a metal frame. With its 4.7-inch 720p AMOLED screen the Galaxy Alpha is similar in dimensions to the Galaxy S5 Mini but 6.7mm thinner. The device comes with a 12MP rear camera which is unusual in that no other current high-end Samsung offers this sort of megapixel-count but no information on sensor size and technology is currently available.
Jars of frog spawn, newborn pigs, and shopping bags piled high for the harvest festival ... Andy Sewells new photobook shows day-to-day life in the countryside today. While there are major signs of change, commercial pressures and encroaching development, rural England seems as green and peaceful as it always hasContinue reading...
See more pictures from Something Like a Nest
A frost-covered field, rutted with tractor tracks, gives way at the horizon to a blue-grey skyline, but the eye is drawn to smudges of red in the foreground the bloody remains of a small animal torn apart by a much larger one. A box of eggs sits by the morning newspaper on a kitchen table covered with a vinyl tablecloth of chickens walking through a field of wild flowers. A newborn piglet slithers beneath its mother's torso on a blood-splattered metal grille. A figure is spied though a gap in the plastic folds of a vast polytunnel where daffodils are grown all year round.
These are some of the images in Andy Sewell's new photobook, Something Like A Nest, a sustained visual meditation on the contemporary English countryside a place defined by often conflicting social and economic interests, and our reluctantly surrendered received notions of the pastoral and the sublime. Sewell makes us think more deeply about what the countryside means by attending to aspects of the rural landscape we often overlook, either because they do not fit our definitions or because we no longer spend enough time there to absorb the changes that have crept into our still green and pleasant, but increasingly managed and manicured, land. As Sewell shows in his understated way, the polytunnel and car park now define rural England as much as the rolling hill or bluebell wood.Continue reading...

Photographers have grown weary of the peacocks posing outside catwalk shows. Now fashion bloggers are pointing their lenses elsewhere to find authentically interesting looks
In 2013, legendary style editor Suzy Menkes published an essay titled The circus of fashion in the New York Times. In it, she nailed the backlash against the crowds who hang around outside various fashion weeks, suggesting that they the stars of street style were eclipsing what was happening on the catwalks. We were once described as black crows, she wrote, but today, the people outside fashion shows are more like peacocks than crows.
Of course, this wasnt the first time someone had suggested street style had reached critical mass. A few months later, fashion photographer Garance Doré would tell Elle: What we call street style isnt actually street style at all, its fashion-week style. It was clear that if street style were to survive, it would need to evolve.Continue reading...
