I discovered these photos by James Pomerantz on Beautiful/Decay, a blog which never fails to inspire.
The pictures were taken in Mexico at the site of a natural sinkhole which connects to a subterranean body of water. Ancient Mayans used the cenote as a source for fresh water and also believed that it was a portal to the afterlife.
Pomerantz says that the caves are not actually as dark as they appear in the photos, but that he intentionally isolates the sunshine in order to heighten the sense of isolation and mysticism.

I love the idea behind these photos. This kind of project could be put to highly effective use here in Winnipeg, where the most beautiful old downtown architechture has been degraded to the point of housing nothing more than Giant Tiger discount outlets or worse yet, nothing.

Photographs by Christian Chaize currently on display at Jen Bekman Gallery. Chaize returns to the same stretch of Portuguese coastline to take each new photograph with the expectation that each new photo will either aid or further confuse his understanding of the space, its meaning, and its personal significance to him.
Some of his prints are available for purchase on 20x200.

Click HERE. Apparently these recordings are used to treat various afflictions such as depression and sleep disorders and are used by psychotherapists around the world.
....cool? Sometimes the world just fascinates me. Humans are a strange, strange species.
The picture above is of Laika, the first living creature in space. She died what was probably a very painful death after overheating occured in the vessel shortly after it entered space.
