Arcadia, CA artist Craig P. Burroughs uses ultraviolet-induced visible fluorescence photography to capture what the human eye fails to see: the longer wavelengths of light certain plants reflect.
Behold the Bee Balm blossom, in all its fluorescent glory.
The Blanket Flower, baring its true colors.
Hawthorne flowers, plainly prismatic.
Ice Plant realness.
And the Kangaroo’s Paw, bold and beautiful.
Take a look at more of Craig P. Burrows’ incredible photography. You’ll never see the world the same!

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness;
Only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate;
Only love can do that.”
American artist Harry Everett Smith is mostly known for his experimental film making in the 1940s. But he also composed music and painted. From 1961 to 1983, he picked up every paper airplane he found on the streets of Manhattan. The survivors of his dedicated collection have been photographed by Jason Fulford and published in Paper Airplanes: The Collections of Harry Smith, Catalogue Raisonné, Volume I.
Harry found this colorful plane on October 29, 1980 at Broadway and East 23rd Street.
He found this slim flyer March 17, 1979 at West 28th Street, between Fifth Avenue and Broadway.
This newspaper plane was picked up on January 20, 1968 at Fifth Avenue between West 34th Street and West 35th Street.
And where did Harry find this polka-dotted beauty? You’ll have to buy the book to find out!
I think I’ll make an eye-catching paper plane and leave it on the street for some present-day soulmate of Harry to find and pick up. Maybe you should, too!
