You've probably consumed your fair share of infographics at this point, but you know what would make them even more compelling? How about using real photography:

"The stories told with graphics and infographics are now being visualized through photography. Photoviz shows how these powerful images are depicting correlations, making the invisible visible, and revealing more detail than classic photojournalism.

Photoviz explores the intersection of photography, infographics, and data visualization. Combining cutting-edge technology and classic photographic techniques enables us to tell stories and visualize information more powerfully and compactly than ever: a full day of flights all at once, invisible Wi-Fi networks, global trade, intimate psychology, movement, time itself, and more. The concept of Photoviz invites us to simultaneously reinvent our collective reality and demystify our surroundings.

Within this mesmerizing photographic world, striking images reveal the power of tools ranging from long exposure and slit-scan photography to post-processing, collage, and metadata. Photoviz is a source of inspiration and a crucial resource for designers and photographers alike."
