Elle Muliarchyk has shot a few campaigns for fashion designers Rodarte, but this one in particular, a project called "Rodarte:Fly" caught our eye this morning as a stunning fashion shoot.

Chinese photographer Zhang Xiao studied Architecture at University and it wasn't until he found an old camera that he discovered his desire to pursue the craft as a career and hobby. While working for the Chongqing Morning Post, Xiao would bring two cameras, one for work and one for his personal photos.

Ah, to be 20 years old with really good ideas and execution. Wish we could say that was us, but then we see works like this from Landau and Weimar, Germany-based photographer Lucas Zimmermann, and we know we were still amateur at that age. All these shots were taken of traffic lights in the fog near Weimar, Germany.
