Marc Janks had a special remedy for his severe shyness: Go out and take intimate portraits of complete strangers. The idea turned into a Tumblr blog that catelogs his experiences photographing randoms in NYC. He writes:
I had to confront my fears and insecurities, but that didn’t mean I couldn’t do it on my own terms. I’m comfortable behind the camera and am connected to my cameras like a cowboy is connected to his horse. From that comfort zone, I could slowly chip away at those fears and insecurities.

Erik Johansson is a Swedish photographer with a special skill for retouching images in fascinating ways. His latest work is an optical illusion outside the Skrapan shopping mall in Stockholm.
