Women in photography: Jumana Jolie and the rise of Dubai

Photojournalist and aerial photographer Jumana Jolie grew up in Dubai in the 1980s, when it was a developing desert town – long before it became a synonym for futuristic cityscape living and air-conditioned luxury.

With more than 250 posts on Instagram, as @pixelville, Jumana has attracted a global audience of more than 100K followers thanks to her vertiginous photographs from city rooftops. She shoots in what look like terrifyingly dangerous places, between impossibly high-mirrored towers, using her Canon EOS 5D Mark III. “I play with angles – it’s all about perspective,” she says. “It started out as a hobby – off the back of my love of architecture. I’d look up and think, ‘Wow, that building is beautiful from here, but I wonder what it would look like from up there?’ It’s so different, seeing the world from above.”

Shanghai From Above

These magnificent views of Shanghai from above were taken by drone by German design director Mark Siegemund, who presents the juxtaposition of tradition and modernity of this dynamic city in a series of breathtaking images. A river divides the old center from the new, and we are treated to views of the ancient winding streets, mid-level housing, temples and dizzying bridges of Puxi, as well as the soaring high-rise buildings and towers of the Pudong business district. Whether shot at night or bathed in morning light, Siegemund’s photography captures the energy and vibrancy of his adopted city.

Infrared Chernobyl by Vladimir Migutin

Infrared filters are known for creating a weird, eerie mood in pictures, no matter what you’re capturing. That is why taking a filter like that to an already haunting-looking place like Chernobyl might make the scenery pictures you take look even more impressive. Photographer Vladimir Migutin did just that on his trip to the town in Ukraine that suffered the infamous nuclear disaster.
