Ooooooh, came across My Parents Were Awesome a few days ago and meant to blog it – essentially a lovely little photoblog with user-submitted pictures of their parents, back in the day, looking…AWESOME!
My favourite photograph at the mo. Bless.
Gorgeous (mostly) black & white photographs of impossibly cool people at http://theimpossiblecool.tumblr.com
Check out this lovely set of phormagraphs from Russia here (thanks Sell! Sell! for the link) using creative lighting and mega-long exposure.
As a lomo fan I give this a big thumbs up.
Loving the Master Hands pics from Russ and Reyn.
More of their lovely photography at their website here.
Thanking Super Punch for the link.
Cutesy blog documenting the tales of Milk Toof.
Read and love at My Milk Toof.
Just come across this lovely bit of photographic work – a collaborative Flickr project of photos tagged with ‘looking into the past’ where photographers have rephotographed a location with a image of it from years gone by overlaying part of the scene.
Lots more to see here.
Today I am mostly loving the work of Platon. More of his work here…
Thanks to the Sell Sell blog for the heads up.
There’s a lomography event a-happening in Viccy Park this weekend.
Getting the coloursplash out, might just see you there…
The Bubble Project’s manifesto appears to be based on the concept of resisting our culture’s predominance of advertising bombardment by defacing ads all over the world with speech bubbles.
Kind of reminds me of the work of The Decapitator…
Have I written about this one before? It seems VERY familiar… loads of cameras left all around the world, people encouraged to take a photo, blog the camera’s whereabouts, then leave it somewhere else until it’s finished, send finished cameras back to be developed and blogged, yada yada yada… Whilst I like these collaborative projects, the idea is getting a bit stale.
Linkypops: the disposable memory project
What a nice concept:
- Go to a ‘lost luggage’ auction (these do actually exist – in Tooting, I think)
- Purchase someone’s missing suitcase
- Take photographs of the contents
- Post it online and try to find the owner
Take a look at the isthisyourluggage.com project and see for yourself…
New Website Alert: Look at this fucking hipster
A photo/video blog which, like Ronseal, does exactly what is says on the tin.
Incredible piece of stop motion animation using photographs. With over 440k views in just 6 days, I am not the only one that loves it.
Came across the photographic work of Peter Funch yesterday, who takes daily photos of the same place in the same spot for 2 weeks, then fuses them together to one image. Nice work.
More of his lovely pics here…
It’s quite macabre but I like playdeadpics.com, a site dedicated to photos of people ‘playing dead’.
That is all.
Yesterday it was dogs in dresses, today it is horses with hairstyles. Loving this alliteration…what’s next? Cats in corsets? Rabbits who row?
Advertising photographer Julian Wolkenstein has teamed up with hairstylist Acacio da Silva to coiff some ponies. See the trio bigger here.
Thank you morning Metro.
Came across some really nice arty bits on Sell! Sell! this morning, one of my new favourite blogs. They picked up on some awesome photography by Michael Hughes who goes to tourist spots around the world and photographs them, replacing the iconic features with souvenirs.
Tres clever, examples below and tons more here…
Thank you .meh, for showing me Dulce Pinzón, a Mexican artist who, amongst other things, photographs immigrants going about their daily life dressed as superheroes. More here…
On my meganet travels today I stumbled across Things I’ve Seen, a rather nice little blog about being out and about (and even in) London town with some sweet photography. I am liking the Columbia Road pics, pretty.
As a bit of a fan of lomography photography (I love saying thoose two words together) I was very excited to read about the Lomographic Society’s new store and gallery in New York. If I ever happen to find myself across the pond, this will most definitely be my first stop.
I’d love to cover my staircase in lomo prints. This weekend I shall be mostly dusting off the old coloursplash and get snapping.
