Sarah Allegra is a fine art photographer whose ethereal work evokes images of the mythical, sometimes laced with sensuality and mystery. Her images explore the inner recesses of the subconscious through various depictions often in pastoral landscapes and forest backgrounds.

One could say that her style is a kind of visual poetry, and is a world uniquely its own.
São Paolo-based photographer Adriano Alarcon has a thick beard, even though it is just half of a whole, and that’s exactly what makes his facial hair unique.

With centuries of hindsight, it seems perhaps rice was not the ideal choice as the most popular food staple. Growing rice is, for a fact, water and labor-intensive, and it needs a flat field that farmers can saturate with water during the planting season. So how have mountain dwelling folks dealt with this? Highland farmers need to create a flat field by carving floodable terraces into the hillsides. If we sit down and think of the work involved, a single rice terrace requires overwhelming labor and it typically is done by hand. Therefore, to behold multiple rice terraces, stacked atop each other as if to form a colossal staircase, is truly magnificent. This is perhaps the reason why Sarawut Intarob’s images of rice terraces has nearly two-million views on his 500px page.
