I also run "Take a Photo, Pass it On" as well as several other Tumblr blogs
As the title suggests, Sarah Fuller’s project “The Forest of No Return” could be mistaken for a ghost story. That wouldn’t be entirely incorrect. The series, about the “return” of transported houses to their original setting in an abandoned gold rush town in Yukon does have many of the necessary pieces that help form a scary tale.
Even the techniques Fuller used to turn the photographs into a theatrical experience—once used by Louis Daguerre—helped to create a somewhat spooky environment.
“I think the photographs do have something eerie to them. I think it’s because they create an effect of human presence but they aren’t real,” Fuller said about the work.
Found some old scans of Polaroids on my computer that I took during my first road trip through California. I need to break out the ol’ Polaroid camera again.
One family, 2 cameras, 30 countries, 60 flights, 1000+ timelapse videos, 200,000+ images and almost 20 terabytes of data. An amazing compilation of timelapse videos shot over the last two years by Stan Chang while travelling Europe with his wife and son. (Via.)
The late Jack Leigh may be most remembered for his image, “Midnight,” a 1993 photograph of a sculpture called “Bird Girl” in Savannah, Georgia’s Bonaventure Cemetery. The image was a commissioned for the cover of author John Berendt’s novel, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. But Leigh’s career stretches beyond the single image. “Jack Leigh: Full Circle, Low Country Photographs, 1972-2004,” at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) Museum of Art celebrates his legacy.
Ukrainian photographers Vitaliy and Elena Vasilieva have visualized ‘apocalypse in art’, a series which builds upon the morbid and wide-sweeping contemporary fascination in catastrophe and disaster, particularly theories regarding the end of the world. The spirit of Armageddon ‘holds sway over modern culture and slowly infects everything around us’ describes the artists ‘how will this virus affect art? will there still be a place for an art in society?’
Solitary figures wander through vast, dreamlike worlds in artist Kasia Derwinska's striking images. Derwinska, who is currently based in Spain, combines photography and digital manipulation to create surreal works of art that seem to act as metaphors for life, expressing themes like loneliness, isolation, separation, reflection, and joy.
Just like in Chicago, SF: The Hip will consist of a heavy dose of iPhone street photography mixed with my daily work at the San Francisco Chronicle and some occasional musings about the state of photojournalism.
Montreal-based studio Moment Factory has transformed Quebec’s Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook into Foresta Lumina, an illuminated nocturnal trail through the enchanted forest. After nightfall from now until mid-October, visitors to the park are invited to take a magical stroll through the woods on an immersive, storybook-like adventure.
The video above isn’t a time-lapse per-se, but it is being reported as such because it allegedly condense a full hour of Israeli Army air strikes on a Gaza Neighborhood down to just one minute of footage. In that minute, you see an entire neighborhood vanish into explosions and massive clouds of dust that clear to reveal only piles of rubble.
The video was tweeted by BuzzFeed correspondent Sheera Frenkel, and it’s important to note that the info in her tweet has not been confirmed by anyone other than Al Arabia News, so details are vague and uncertain, but it’s a horrifying ‘time-lapse’ that reminds us of the GoPro video from the front of Syrian tank we shared several months ago.
Sea Fever | David Baker
A series of painterly seascapes using long-exposure to create just enough blur on the crest of the waves while retaining details in the water, sky, and some rock formations on the shore.
At heart I’m a coastal photographer drawn to the flow of the sea and the ever changing possibilities of shore, sea and sky. Coastal landscapes may often offer a simple geography of a beach, the sea and a cloudscape and as such there is a challenge to construct new and inventive interpretations. Sea Fever is my interpretation of those seascapes and of the close affinity between sea and sky.
