Return to Sender is a funny photo series by photographer Tommy Kha that takes a unique approach to self-portraiture. Rather than taking a straight-forward image of himself, the Memphis-based photographer presents himself engaged in a one-sided kiss with dozens of strangers in various locales. Funny enough, it’s the other person in each shot that is fully committed to the smooch as Kha stands motionless.

When approaching strangers to be his potential partner, Kha simply has one direction for them: “They can kiss me however they want but they have to kiss me on the lips.” No matter how they choose to go about it, Kha’s reaction is consistent. The stoic photographer’s unresponsive facial expression and body language stands out in each shot, making for a hilariously awkward collection of photos.

Shot after shot, he continues to lock lips with passionate partners, yet he impressively displays no sign of pleasure, disgust, or any other possible reaction. Instead, he opts to remain unaffected by their advances, even if they choose to carry him in their arms or dip him as a romantic gesture.

The Scar Project: Breast Cancer is not a Pink Ribbon

The SCAR Project is a series of large-scale portraits of young breast cancer survivors shot by fashion photographer David Jay. Primarily an awareness raising campaign, The SCAR Project puts a raw, unflinching face on early onset breast cancer while paying tribute to the courage and spirit of so many brave young women.

Dedicated to the more than 10,000 women under the age of 40 who will be diagnosed this year alone, The SCAR Project is an exercise in awareness, hope, reflection and healing.

Where Children Sleep

Where Children Sleep photographed by James Mollison around the world.

“When photographer James Mollison was asked to do a project on children’s rights, he found himself thinking back to his childhood bedroom and the deep importance it played in his upbringing. Taking that idea with him around the world, he photographed a diverse cross section of children and the bedrooms they call home. His moving images remove the children from their home environment, showing them before a neutral background that mostly hides their economic status as if to say “kids are just kids.” Only when their bedroom is observed, however, does the full scope of their living situation become poiniently clear.”
