Award-winning Spanish photographer José A. Gallego creates stunning images that entrance us through their technical virtuosity and timeless themes. With his modern sense for composition combined with sensitivity for lighting that nods to the great Spanish Baroque painters, Gallego crafts incredible portraits of exotic animals, lonesome vistas, and intricate scenes of urbanity. Employing high contrast lighting, forms seem to protrude from the abyss, focusing our attention on the fine articulation of detail captured by Gallego’s adept camera. Many of his photographs convey a sense of isolation or loneliness.
Gallego is an active professor and has exhibited his photographs frequently throughout Spain and in the United States. His works have appeared in major publications such as National Geographic, El Pais, and Digital Photo.

In Cambodia, a family has a curious pet. A child of the family has made friendship with a Burmese python with 5 meters long and weighing 100 kg. The images of the boy with the reptile are incredible.
The Burmese Python (Python molurus bivittatus) is the largest subspecies of the Indian Python and one of the 6 largest snakes in the world, native to a large variation of tropic and subtropic areas of Southern- and Southeast Asia. They are often found near water and are sometimes semi-aquatic, but can also be found in trees. Burmese Pythons are dark-coloured snakes with many brown blotches bordered in black down the back. In the wild, Burmese pythons grow to 3.7 metres (12 ft) on average, while specimens of more than 4 metres (13 ft) are uncommon. Individuals over 5 metres (16 ft) – like a specimen from Cooch Behar with 5.8 metres (19 ft) and 91 kilograms (201 lb) – are very rare. Source: Wikipedia. See more:
