Remake Inspiration

There are a bunch of awesome remakes of art at this link.

Cool for anyone checking out the history of photography, painting etc.



The Lytro

I forgot to mention this until now but the camera that takes photos first and focuses later is now a real product. For a starting price of $399, you can own one.



Haunted House "Photo Project"

Hey dudes,

while browsing today, I came across the flickr of a haunted house that at an identical moment in the walkthrough of the house, fires a strobe and takes a picture right as the patrons are most scared. it actually makes for some extremely interesting photographs. the most interesting thing however, is simply how many of these shots there are. they have hundreds from each month of operation. as someone who stages photos, and tries meticulously to get people to look at least kind of scared, im finding this to be some great source material.




JeanYves Lemoigne

i found this photographer whose work really speaks to me, mainly because of its similarities to mine, which weirds me out!



Christy Lee Rogers



Photo Manipulation with Polaroid Zink Printer

Turns out, these gadgets are quite handy.


4x5 Rangefinder

For those who are curious, I finally finished building my portable 4x5 camera. It needs a bit of fine-tuning, but I've already started making images with it that I'll develop when I'm back in Oberlin.




this is fucking insane stuff. Long exposures using body scans of a segmented murderer's corpse. for real. yeah. thats what i said. holy shit.

"How do you photograph one of the most secretive countries in the world?
For Charlie Crane the answer was simple, photograph what they want you to see. If there is no possibility of getting underneath the surface then the answer was to photograph the surface itself. This series is taken from a larger body of work in Pyongyang, the capital city of North Korea."



Roger Ballen

Roger Ballen is an American photographer who works (among other things) documenting rural South Africa. The photographs are stunning, and blur the line between reality and staging: its easy to see his hand in the staging of the photographs, but unclear what elements are his responsibility. Check out his work on his website!



Alejandro Chaskielberg + Underøath

This guy just won the Sony Photographer of the year award. I think this stuff is really unbelievable. Check him out here: http://www.chaskielberg.com/

Jon Rafman - 9 eyes

Hey y'all

I've been getting really into some work by this guy Jon Rafman. In one of his projects, he makes large scale prints of images he captures in Google Street View. This is pretty crazy, considering the nature of this work as photography. He is essentially doing Bresson's work, searching for the Decisive Moment, but rather than shooting it himself, he's using the (literally) millions of images that Google has produced for Street View. The work talks about the beauty of our world through an interesting lens, the nine eyes of the Google camera. The three images I've posted here came from the blog Rafman uses to document the project, which is here:




Andreas Feininger
