There's nothing better than using your talents to help out a good cause – especially when it comes to dogs.

One woman, named Sophie Gamand, decided to put her photography skills to good use when she saw how many sheltered dogs (mainly Pitt Bulls) were being put down for unnecessary reasons.

By combining her skills with the desire to help out these pups, Sophie started The Flower Power Series: Pitt Bulls of the revolution.

With her efforts, the artist has successfully re-homed many dogs who were destined to be put down, just because of their breed.

Writing on her website, New-York-based Sophie said: "It's a quiet massacre. These dogs make people uncomfortable, which has led the country to be faced with a major Pit Bull crisis.

"Unfortunately, because of their bad image, they have the false reputation of being more dangerous than other dogs, hence attracting irresponsible primary owners who are looking for a 'scary dog', and seek to develop those traits in them.

"Pit Bulls' downfall is to be exactly the way we created them: strong and loyal. With this series, I wonder if art is a tool powerful enough it can change Pit Bulls' fate."

We're seriously impressed by this woman and her artwork. Take a longer look at her Instagram page, there's some seriously pretty pups on there.

Brooklyn Beckham has quite the CV for a 17-year-old.

He's a pro skateboarder, a model and a photographer, but then again, his parents are one of the most famous couples in the world.

But it seems like his latest venture is one of his professions that he holds closest to his heart – photography.


The full cover of my book 'what I see' hope you like it. Link to pre order and signed copies in bio ^^

Brooklyn announced on Instagram last night that he's releasing a book full of his photographs.

The talented teenager shared the front cover of his book What I See, and told his fans that he hopes they like it.

You'll have to wait a while to get your hands on it though, as it won't be released until May 2017.

The description on the pre-order site reads: “What I See, the first book by Brooklyn Beckham, is a series of snapshots of his life.

“Each chapter tells a different story through pictures by and of Brooklyn, accompanied by captions and passages of text in his own words.

“Unique, authentic and stylish, What I See is a glimpse behind the lens," it added.



Hidden cats, snowmen disguised as pandas… the internet loves a good visual riddle.

And this photograph, posted to Instagram by snapper Tiziana Vergari, is one of the best we've seen in a while.

At first glance, it looks like a row of young girls sitting on a bench, but once you look closer you see that there's definitely some element of mirroring and reflection involved.

The question is though, how many girls really did pose for the photo? Unsurprisingly, the internet is somewhat divided, with close to 1,000 comments each suggesting different answers.

Tiziana has since confirmed that the image is of two sisters – just two – looking into a mirror, but people are still drawing their own conclusions.

Some say four – like this guy who swears he has it all figured out:

Others say three:

The Swiss lifestyle photographer shared the image as part of Instagram's #WHPIdentity project, for which users are asked to submit photos around the theme of individuality.

Already it's racked up over 13,000 likes and counting, and we can see why – it's a stunning piece of photography.


A picture of a muddy potato has been sold to an unnamed businessman for a massive, €1m.

We're not even joking.

The picture of the spud was taken by photographer/artist, Kevin Abosch in 2010, and it is indeed, an Irish potato.

The photo sits alongside other works of art by Kevin, including shots of Steven Spielberg, Michael Palin and Sheryl Sandberg.

Mr Abosch's pictures are usually commissioned for around €200,000, and this potato is the most anyone has paid him. 

“We had two glasses of wine and he said, ‘I really like that’. Two more glasses of wine and he said: ‘I really want that.’

“We set the price two weeks later. It is the most I have been paid for a piece of work that has been bought [rather than commissioned],” Kevin told the Sunday Times.

His work is world renowned and his art has been featured in numerous magazines, including Vogue. 

The photo is called Potato #345, and it's not even one-of-a-kind. There's two more of them; one in Kevin's portfolio and another was donated to an art museum in Serbia.

You might also remember Kevin's work from a couple of years ago in Terminal 2 of Dublin airport. He was the photographer behind the Faces of Ireland pictures.

As of what happened to the mucky potato? Kevin doesn't know, so it was probably turned into mash.
