Some great work by Ukrainian photographers Tania Shcheglova and Roman Noven. Kinda NSFW.
"Animals" is Ryan McGinley's latest exhibition, which features colour portraits of nude models posing with (nude) animals. It's part cutesy and part squirmish, but like most of McGinley's work I find the imagery really captivating. If you're lucky enough to be in New York right now, check it out at Team Gallery.

Photography by South African Pieter Hugo, from two absolutely stunning series called "The Hyenas and Other Men" and "Nollywood"... small slices of Nigerian life that I never even knew existed. A little bit about each series (via Dangerous Minds)...
"In the series “The Hyenas and Other Men,” Hugo documents the Gadawan Kura’ (hyena handlers/guides) who live in the shanty towns of Lagos, Nigeria and make a living by performing on the streets with hyenas that they’ve captured in the wild.
In the series "Nollywood", Hugo evokes aspects of Nigerian films in haunting photographs that recreate the surreality of cultures intermingling - Hollywood pop iconography (particularly horror imagery) mashed-up with Africa’s long and deep traditions of myth-making."
Photojournalist William Miller bought an old Polaroid SX-70 instant camera at a local yard sale. After a few snaps he realised that the camera was malfunctioning, but instead of tossing it in the nearest river he began to take an interest in the way the camera turned normal shapes and colours and spewed them out into a series of abstract, sprawling landscapes. Below are some of the beautiful images from his Ruined Polaroids series.

Some really simple but beautiful digital manipulations by Portuguese artist Luis Dourado.
New Zealander photographer John Crawford's 'Aerial Nudes' series is just fantastic.
