In a move that sent shockwaves through a quiet sleepy neighborhood, photos from an iPhone were printed onto photographic paper.
Lynn, a mother of two who refused to tell us her age, uploaded iPhone photos to a lab and within a week received back two bundles of 4x6 color paper prints.

The Whimsically Macabre Scenes of @__remmidemmi
To see more of Sandro’s explorations of “bodies with no regret,” follow @__remmidemmi on Instagram.
In his macabre, tragicomic photo series, Italian photographer Sandro Giordoan (@__remmidemmi) explores the willingness of people to put the safety of material objects before their own well-being.
When conceiving the project, _IN EXTREMIS (bodies with no regret), Sandro drew from personal experience. “Last summer I had a small but tough bicycle accident,” he explains. “I lost 30% of my right hand’s functions because I never let go of the object I was holding as I fell.”
When, shortly after, a friend broke his leg to prevent his smartphone from falling in water, Sandro became concerned. “We live in a time where we risk material things becoming more important than our own lives, and this is really worrying.”
Sandro channeled his concern into crafting meticulous and whimsical photos. “I immediately felt the urgency to capture the moment of impact. I wanted to talk about obsessions, neurosis and frailties of our times through my personal experience.” The resulting photos are at once humorous and haunting.
Many think that the wildly contorted bodies in Sandro’s photos are dolls or dummies. Not so, says Sandro. “I work exclusively with professional actors who are able to position themselves in anatomically impossible poses because they are trained to use their bodies to communicate.”
B&H recently teamed up with South African Airways and ecotourism company Wilderness Safaris for the B&H Wilderness Photo Contest. The goal was to encourage photographers to celebrate the concept of conservation. By capturing beautiful images of nature, you, in turn, help to spread awareness about conservation. Two entrants in this contest received an African safari trip for two, in addition to a $500 B&H Gift Card. Eight semi-finalists each received a $500 Gift Card. Congratulations!
