I miss my fisheye lens. I really need to get it fixed or buy a new one. Too bad those things aren’t cheap :(
I’ve been sorting through some more of my photos tonight and I cam across this one. This is somewhere off the Pacific Coast Highway in California. I’d like to be back on the road again please and thank you.
Dutch tourists Ed Sijmons and his wife Louise visited New York City for two weeks in 1980. They came away with rolls and rolls of 35mm film, and had only found the negatives of one. Until this month, when they rediscovered the rest, digitized the entire treasure trove, and put it on Flickr in four sets for the world to enjoy
Earth can be absolutely beautiful as seen from the ground. But, as wonderful as it is from our point of view, certain scenes just can’t be appreciated unless seen from a bird’s eye view.
The Wakhan Corridor is a rural and wild area between Afghanistan and China. It is home to both the Wakhi and Kyrgyz, each living on different ends of the corridor. Though historically used ad a trading route between neighboring areas, the route is rugged and not an easy path to travel. Photographer Frédéric Lagrange explored this route in 2012 to document the landscape and the communities living there. All of these images were shot on medium format film.
Peruvian photographer Paccarik Orue’s There Is Nothing Beautiful Around Here depicts the city of Richmond, California. To many, the city is considered an eye-sore, but to Orue, the beauty is there, in subtle moments and in the people themselves. The series shows the these contrasting opinions side by side, a city beautiful despite itself.
Cable Release recently received an intriguing submission from Cleveland-based artist, Amelia Maslen. In her body of work “A Different Way”, Maslen creates uniquely energetic and disorienting compositions by manipulating the color registrations of each image. Maslen explains that her work “is a symbolic narrative of spirituality and perceptions of reality. The photographs transcend perception, questioning reality by flattening “natural” space through mis-registration of color layers.
If you were like many kids, you probably spent much of your childhood in a hybrid world where reality and imagination fused into an indistinguishable whole. Magical creatures walked the streets, everyday-objects transformed into priceless relics and your favorite movie characters walked down the street opposite you.
For photographer Thomas Dagg, this meant one thing and one thing only: Star Wars. And so for his recent series by the same name, he recreated this imaginary world by creatively inserting Star Wars characters and objects into the real world around him.
Johan Lolos spent an entire year traversing Australia’s diverse terrains, documenting all of his findings on film.
