these photos are by Carmen Marchena, another wonderful flickr discovery. they were taken in Greenland, some with expired film, giving a strangely warm quality to this cold beautiful place. i want to go to there.
Tamara Lichtenstein is one of those talented people on flickr whose dreamy photographs get fav’d a thousand times over. i have followed her for a long time and always like seeing a new image pop up in my feed. quick facts: she’s 23, from Houston Texas, and she also does commercial work. you can see more of her work at her website & flickr, and also buy her prints at etsy.
it’s that time of year again where i do my annual post about summer psyching. this has mostly do with all the imagery i have seen on instagram and twitter and in my blog feed from people who live in, or are currently holidaying in, the northern hemisphere. i know you guys have been experiencing some heat waves – even though the news of the heat wave in London made all of us south africans smile, of course. “temperatures as high as 32c!”
continuing with Flickr Fridays! i have noticed and admired the work of Li Hui for years on Flickr, so I was surprised to find that i had never actually done a post about her before (cannot keep track after all these years i guess). she is a self-taught photographer who only uses film. something you might notice is that her subjects never show their faces, and she gives a reason for that in this interview:
i thought it was great timing to show you the work of Ren Rox since Flickr has just been given a design update (and everyone gets 1 terabyte free storage, which is pretty cool). so now you can browse her work with lovely big pictures and endless scrolling – the way all photostreams should be viewed.
