Reflect: Convicts’ letters to their younger selves.
The captivating portraits offer a rare glimpse into the minds of convicts who will spend much of their adult lives behind bars. Bell and digital retoucher Timothy Holt spent the day at a Maine State prison photographing individual inmates who were also offered the opportunity to write a letter to a younger version of himself. Holt then worked extensively in post-production to transfer the words of each letter into a perfect silhouette around each compelling portrait. In addition to the large, still photographs, live interviews with the inmates were also documented in a powerful video.

Geometric Animal Sculptures
Industrial artist Ben Foster creates life-size recreations of animals in geometric form.
The sculpture, standing at 7-ft-tall and measuring 12-ft-long and 18-ft-wide, was created to mark the launch of Natural Curiosities, a new nature documentary series by legendary wildlife presenter Sir David Attenborough. It took a team of sculptors two months to craft the prickly creature from over 2,000 soft wood spikes and fur made of a coconut and fiber mix. The result is a remarkably lifelike replication of the hedgehog, from its realistic skin tone and prickly build to the inquisitive look on its furry face.
