Lou Mora is a very talented portrait/lifestyle photographer.
It can sometimes be easy to forget that behind some of your favourite photoblogs are some very talented photographers in their own right. One such person is Doug Stockdale who writes the excellent “The Photo Book“.
The always excellent Lens Culture recently featured the work of Hungarian born photographer Adam Magyar. Magyar uses a slit-scan camera, which he designed and built himself, to capture several hundred one-pixel wide vertical images of busy streets in Hong Kong, Tokyo, London and New York. These images are then stitched together on his laptop to create long panoramas with odd effects such as everyone appearing to walk in the same direction.
The results are superb and quite unique. Lens Culture and Adam’s website have much more detail on the process. Also on Adam’s website you can zoom in on parts of the image (look at people’s feet). I’d love to see these images in a gallery.
