The word "photography" stems from "writing with light." These three projects, pulled from the archives of LensCulture, push that idea one step further: in different ways, these photographers use the direct power of the sun itself to create inventive, wildly varied interpretations of the medium "photography".
Also, here's our highlight of some of the most interesting photo series from around the world. This week in LensCulture:
Guarita: Brazil's Watchers Private sentry boxes, guaritas, dot city street corners across Brazil. A look into the night sentries' lives and how this local phenomenon reflects a universally felt sense of urban isolation. By Stefan Schmeling.
