I recently shared a photo I'm proud of on Instagram. Reactions ranged from very positive to those denying my work the title of “a photograph,” calling it “computer graphics,” or “photo-graphics.” This got me thinking. Do people really understand the concept of photography and why are they so adamantly against photo-manipulation?I became passionate about photography after the birth of my twin daughters Annabella and Juliette; they inspire me every day in my work. Through photography, I strive to enter the world of my two children, to grasp all the childhood whimsies and to recreate these magical moments that we all look back on and smile. This means using whatever photographic tools will get me closest to that vision. Photoshop is just one of those tools.Photography was invented over 180 years…

What does the collapse of the Berlin wall have in common with the establishment of the Kingdom of England? They’re both younger than the Nishiyama Onsen Keiunkan, a resort in Japan that has been INN business since 705 AD, and is officially recognized by The Guinness World Records as the oldest hotel in the world. Over the centuries, it has grown quite a guest list, including everyone from highest-ranking politicians to samurai. Most of them probably came to the resort for the same reason it is visited today: the hot springs, which have been flowing around the complex since its opening.Show Full TextThe main trick behind the hotel’s 1,313-year longevity seems to be family experience and expertise.
