Pet Death by Emir Ozsahin

A photographer is taking pictures of dead animals which look like they are happily sleeping to help owners deal with their loss. Emir Ozsahin said when he lost a close friend it made him think about death and ways in which he could use photography to help him and others through a difficult time.

After completing the project he buried the animals himself and says the photographs act as a memorial to the animals that passed. He said: 'By humanising deceased animals and showing them as if they were sleeping, I tried to briefly touch death and create a series of photographs about pushing away the feeling of disappearing before it hits us hard in the face.

Koyashskoe Salt Lake

Koyashskoe lake in Kerch, (Crimea). Located in the Opukske Reserve, Lake Koyashske is considered to be the saltiest in Crimea – a liter of its water contains 350 grams of salt. The lake’s main highlight is its changing-colour properties that depend on the season(when it's hot, the water is pink-coloured). The unusual color of the lake is due to the microscopic algae living in the water. Another reason for the lake's red color is the high population of brine shrimps that live there.
