I am really liking Mary Ellen Bartley‘s photographs of books
I love Johan Thornqvist‘s illustrations.
Chris Wild’s wonderful blog “How to be a Retronaut” pulls together old photos and video in an imaginative and entertaining way. I like these images of London.
I featured tilt-shift photography on here before in the blog’s early days. Since then it has become much more common and there are even apps for iphones now that allow the effect. It is also used in adverts and even on TV dramas. The following are a few more examples of tilt-shift that I like.
David Burnett, photographing the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina:
A google or Flickr search will find many others and instructions on how to take them or use photoshop to create the effect.
Artist Holton Rower creates work by pouring paint over a pedestal. The works are good but the process of creation as seen in the video below is beautiful.
The Nation has a fascinating article about the Mexican Suitcase, a suitcase containing thousands of negatives of the Spanish Civil War taken by Robert Capa, Gerda Taro and David Seymour. The suitcase was carried from France to Mexico in 1942 by the Mexican ambassador to the Vichy government. It then disappeared until 2007.
Excellent work by Annie McAulay.
