Iconication | Anatol Kotte

Not just a façade: what turns a photograph into an icon?
Rihanna, John Turturro, Angela Merkel, Martin Kippenberger, Mario Draghi, and Miss Piggy share two things: they are world famous, and they have all stood in front of the camera of Anatol Kotte. His unique portrait photographs have featured in publications such as Time, Die Zeit, Stern, or L’Uomo Vogue. But what makes Kotte’s photographs special? At first glance they are cool and distant, and at second glance emotional and dramatic. They permit those being portrayed to discover very different aspects of themselves. Kotte approaches them candidly, seeks a special gaze, an unexpected demeanor or environment—preferably in black and white, always moving. The portraits are also interspersed with surprising views of cities and landscapes. The world and individuals become icons, and we can take a very new look at them.

Photographer captures magical images of Cappadocia’s famous hot air balloons

A photographer has shared a series of images highlighting the vibrant beauty of the famous hot air balloons commonly seen in Cappadocia, Turkey.

The images were taken by Kristina Makeeva, a 29-year old photographer from Moscow, and show the balloons flying over the picturesque landscapes and valleys of the region. Known as one of the most popular places in the world for balloon rides, attracting enthusiasts and travellers year round for the experience, Cappadocia features spectacular surrealistic landscapes and breath-taking views, making it a dream destination for photographers. “When my team and I first visited Cappadocia, we were shocked by the beauty of this place. The unique rock formations and underground cities in conjunction with the balloons turn the area into a fairy tale land. Shooting there is really not difficult, it is enough to just set the focus and press the shutter button on the camera,” Kristina told Lonely Planet Travel News.
