Michio Hoshino, a photographer known for his pictures of bears and other wildlife, was mauled to death by a brown bear on the Kamchatka Peninsula in eastern Russia. He was in his mid-40′s and lived in Fairbanks, Alaska.
This was the last photo he took.


The alleged wildlife photographer’s last photograph of a bear is spreading through internet like wildfire. A lot of people believe the story, But fewer people know that the photo (above) is a fake and has no relevance to the tragic accident that happened on August 8, 1996.
When you look at the ‘original’ in color, it is quite obvious the image was created as a composition of two photos - a tent and a bear ones. If you look at the light, it is clear it could not be done at 4 a.m. (when the accident happened). The light on the photo is more like noon. Also, we see that the bear’s head is inside the tent, but the light on his nose does not support that notion. In addition, notice the shadow from the plants outside the tent, notice the light inside the tent - all points out to the sun being on the right side of a photographer. The bear, on the contrary, is lit from the left - I doubt there was an external flash outside the tent.
And what is more revealing - is that the bear’s foot is also inside a tent, but in a strange way - too sharp line of a tent material, not the whole width of a foot is inside. Putting all the evidence together, we can say that this is clearly a fake photo.

I would have loved to believe this amazing story. Too bad it’s not completely true. Nevertheless, Michio Hoshino is still one of the most accomplished nature photographers of his era.

Sometimes, i just wonder if it is still remembered as “V” from the movie “V for Vendetta” or if it is only recognized as the Anonymous symbol?
Depends on your generation and movie culture I guess…

Actually, it all started with a graphic novel in the 80s, but I guess you’re from a different generation :p

Terry Richardson for Tom Ford Eyewear s/s 2008 - Tom Ford has never shied away from controversy when it comes to advertising. These 2008 images to promote Tom Ford Eyewear do not disappoint, as he returned to what he does best: pictures designed to shock, with a dose of sexuality. Works for me :-)
