The venturesome flight of a ladybug, a pleasant shadow cooling the skin, the touching lightheartedness of children playing – Corla Schöner’s (@thelittlethings_love) photographs are like a love song to life. And for her, everyday moments are the melody. “They are pure, fragile and at the same time so incredibly strong that they soak our thick skin and, if we allow it, get up in our soul,” says the special education teacher from Frankfurt, Germany.
Corla lets her images tell little fairy tales beyond words, taking the viewer on a journey. “I think that photography can be a way to reach this well-protected and often hidden place within ourselves. A place that not only shelters our desires and fears, but at the same time is the place where our individual freedom, joy and creativity is born.”
“It’s very unusual to see a bear and a wolf getting on like this” says Finnish photographer Lassi Rautiainen, 56, who took these surprising photos. The female grey wolf and male brown were spotted every night for ten days straight, spending several hours together between 8pm and 4am. They would even share food with each other. “No-one can know exactly why or how the young wolf and bear became friends,” Lassi told the Daily Mail. “I think that perhaps they were both alone and they were young and a bit unsure of how to survive alone…It is nice to share rare events in the wild that you would never expect to see.”
