i found myself in a very zen place after a stressful morning by browsing through the photography of Sinziana Velicescu. she is a LA based photographer & filmmaker, and her photography “explores human intervention with nature in landscapes that have undergone political, social, or environmental change”. you can follow her on instagram, tumblr, flickr & facebook.

Nicola Odemann

Nicola Odemann

i have posted about Nicola Odemann before, but somehow the images in the post have disappeared. mmm, i suppose if you have had a blog going for 7 off years there will be some digital casualties along the way (i imagine the internet to eat files like the dreaded sarlacc, to…

The Islands

Claudia Corrent is an Italian photographer whose project Insulae (The Islands) offers a different perspective on Venice. i have been lucky enough to visit Venice twice – though never ventured beyond the main island. it’s interesting to see it like this, more from a local’s point of view (and minus…

Janet Delaney: NYC 1984-1987

Janet Delany: NYC 1984-1987

this past weekend i was having a discussion with friends about how great our parents and grandparents family photos were, compared to the endless and often crappy iPhone photos we haphazardly churn out these days. when i look back at photos i took pre-digital days (i still used a film camera when i…

Double Tap: Matthieu Venot

William James Broadhurst

William James Broadhurst

when looking through the photography of William James Broadhurst all i could think was the light! THE LIGHT! they really are extraordinarily beautiful photos, even though the subject matter is seemingly pretty mundane (actually my favourite kind of photography, and the mark of a great photographer). William is Australian, and very…

Jeff & Kerryn are a South African couple who love travelling, and document said travels on their blog Pass The Map. at the beginning of their honeymoon – a clockwise road trip that would follow the circumference of South Africa, starting and finishing at in Skukuza in the Kruger National Park – Kerryn began documenting each day by overlaying a polaroid with the context in which it was taken.

Gordon Parks

Gordon Parks

i have featured images by photographer Gordon Parks many times on the blog, but have never done a post dedicated solely to his work. which is weird, considering he’s such a legend. he was the first African-American writer and staff photographer at Life, the first African-American photographer published in Vogue, and the…
