Futurists is the name of a peculiar and thought-provoking new photo series, put together by London-based photographer David Vintiner, that documents an array of men and women who are working to push technology beyond its present limits in a bid to enhance human capabilities.

The subjects in the photo series include Neil Harbisson, widely considered the world's first recognized cyborg due to the fact that he has a brain-embedded antenna that enables him to near colours as sound. Also featured is DIY brain hacker Andrew Vladimirov, who uses lasers, magnetic fields and electrical currents to alter his state of mind.

Not all the futurists depicted in this photo series are professionals. Indeed some of them just happen to have a strong passion for the use of new technology and innovation for the improvement of humanity. Futurists aren't soothsayers or fortune-tellers either, but they do believe in using technology to impact the course of human evolution.
