Matt Bower aka Terrapin Dawg (raddest alias) has a wonderful collection of photos that he’s taken around the states in places like georgia, alabama, michigan… i love the feel of them, it reminds me a bit of William Eggleston’s work. also be sure to check out his trip to India and a great collection of vintage family photos.
perhaps one day if i’m lucky enough i’ll get to do a great american road trip, but for now i can live vicariously through the photographs of Kevin Russ. you’re probably thinking that these were shot with some rad medium format camera – but they were actually all taken with Kevin’s iPhone… i know. you can follow Kevin on instagram, view his mobile photostream, and see his professional work on his flickr and website.
randy fox is an american photographer, whose work frequently concentrates on the decaying beauty and loneliness of the fraying american dream. based in western pennsylvania, fox’s work celebrates the hope and ingenuity that once existed in the rust belt area of the united states.
my brother sent me a link to national geographic’s feature on montana, which subsequently lead me to montana’s official state travel site. such a nice, clean website that makes me want to visit that part of the world even more now. i still think being a national geographic / travel photographer must be the best job in the world.
i want to go to there! it looks like what i imagine summer camp to be… photos by sean marc lee
i agonized for about 5 seconds over whether i had posted about peter baker before (i’m pretty sure i haven’t, but my tagging can be sporadic). even if i have – these photographs warrant a second look. and a third & fourth etc. i just love them, especially his images of iceland (what is with me and iceland?). i could hardly pick my top photos to feature, so please go over to his flickr and have a gander.
hey dorks, it’s art history time. if you’re not familiar with the classic frontier paintings by albert bierstadt – you will be now. you owe it to yourself to stare at these bad boys. that light! that detail! oh wow, i could just imagine a million reproductions hanging in thrift stores & seventies living rooms the world over and not getting a second glance (shame).
i decided to rent the first season of true blood and watched it pretty much in 2 days (the only way to watch a series, really). i absolutely love the southern / louisiana setting (obviously romanticised, this is television after all). anyhoos, who wouldn’t want to live in an old plantation home surrounded by giant live oak trees, sitting on the porch in just shorts & a vest, fanning yourself, drinking home-made lemonade and eating pecan pie?
