Hastings Park, 16 July 1955 (2008) is from Stan Douglas’s project Humor, Irony, and the Law, in which the artist re-stages historic moments of unrest in his native Vancouver. This particular image recreates a scene at a Vancouver horse track in 1955 using models dressed in period clothing selected to match the look of color film at that time. The models were photographed between takes while they were off guard. This image is composed of 30 separate shots.

berlin

my stupid feet and den's kaiser chief high tops

i didn’t take a lot of photos in berlin, so i guess this isn’t an accurate description of what i saw & took in on my trip there. when you travel so much you sometimes get lazy on the photography front, thinking it will be all good & you’ll just remember it all. but you don’t! you should take pics all the time.

Paris 48°50N 2°23E

in each city ami asks 50 of its inhabitants to hand-draw a map to a place of their choosing, a place that is significant or important to them personally, for any reason. she then uses the maps to navigate to each location and take a photograph to represent each location. the ° books portray a side of each city as interpreted by those who live and work in it every day. its not a “guide” to the new café or club, but rather, a unique way of discovering different parts of the city.

it looks like SO much fun! photos from the big picture.

my sister-in-law is german, and her entire family & all her friends came from germany to south africa for their wedding, and i have never ever seen anyone drink like the germans can. and not fall down drunk either, they just keep going and going. they were like the energizer bunnies of drinking and revelry. in fact, the wedding was a 3 day affair in probably the hottest february weather i have ever experienced, and while i was lying in the shade somewhere fanning myself, the germans were sitting in the full on sun going lobster red and drinking beer and wine like it was going out of fashion.
