This gorgeous series of images of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina by Jennifer Shaw caught our eye, not just because they were shot with a Holga camera but also because of the visual impact they have in conveying the sense of awe and fragility.
Lastly, these stunning black & white images of surfers are gloriously shot - they are by photographer, Wayne Levin who has been capturing underwater and sealife images for the last 30 years primarily in black & white.
