Matt Weber12. March 2014
- New York photographer Matt Weber has been pursuing his fascination with the Big Apple for more than three decades. For six years he worked as a taxi cab driver and witnessed the city from a unique perspective. Eventually, he stepped out of his cab and ventured into the streets to pursue his true passion for documenting his experiences through his camera lens.
Sophie Woodrow – ceramics10. March 2014
These crazy-awesome ceramic creations are by Bristol born Sophie Woodrow. Now you know how much I love ceramic creatures, so I was very amped to find these weird and wonderful guys staring back at me from my computer last night - They look like something Tim Burton would make if he took up pottery as a hobby.
- Sophie’s sculptures are not visitors from other worlds, but the ‘might-have-beens’ of this world. She seeks to assemble creatures from the strange notions of what we define as ‘nature’ and of each other as people – as ‘other’.
Cheyenne Randall – photoshopped tattoos10. March 2014
Cheyenne Randall runs a tumblr site where he uploads photos of stars and well known people that he has photoshopped tattoos onto. I think this project is quite fun and I really like it when he takes the old glamours Hollywood stars, like Marilyn and Audrey Hepburn and toughens them up a bit.
- Seattle based artist, Cheyenne Randall, has created a bundle of iconic personalities from a parallel universe. Tattooed that is. Allow your imagination to run wild and enjoy the visual stimuli from the mind of a super weirdo.
Andrew B. Myers05. March 2014
These interesting photos are by Toronto-based photographer Andrew B. Myers. I came across them on this site and I really like his simple yet quirky compositions and his pastel and sometimes bright poppy colour combos. I find his photos fun and different and in no need of a deep insightful explanation, they’re just cool to look at and appreciate.
Warren Kirk25. February 2014
This morning I got a mil from and Andrew telling me about the work of Warren Kirk, he reckoned I would like it seeing as I like Stephen Shore. Andrew, you were not wrong. This type of documentative photography is one of my favourite styles. I myself love taking photos just like these, I used to take a hell of a lot back in the day when my camera used to be pretty much attached to my hand, my iphone has kind of changed that, which I’m pretty bummed about.
Anyway check out the work of Warren Kirk who calls himself a ‘Westographer’, he’s really good and he has shot a lot. Below is just a selection I made, the rest can be seen on his flickr account.
- As Warren Kirk shoots and shoots Melbourne’s western suburbs his Westographer work forms in to loose and low-key typologies. Concrete lawn animals, vintage cars parked in front of houses of matching eras, distinct periods of acquirement followed by stasis, the clumsy signage of small home businesses, topiary, cars cloaked in silvery covers, people posing at their fences and in their kitchens, dated yet carefully maintained interiors, boarded up shops and faded hand-painted signs. This is not a taxonomy of nostalgia so much as time travel at normal pace; the new evolved to vintage in-situ.
Split view mountain lodge by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter24. February 2014
Look at this beautiful wood clad mountain lodge designed by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter. Wood, glass, open spaces, views for days and all beautifully designed into something that would catch your eye a mile away. Imagine driving to this little getaway whenever the fancy took you, I think I would drive there and never drive back.
- The holiday home is located near the village Geilo, a popular skiing destination in the valley Hallingdal. Ski resorts are abundant around the lodge, with a freestyle terrain park right next to the site. Out of winter season, the mountains provide excellent hiking opportunities as well as other sporting activities.
On the same site I found this small prefabricated holiday home called a MINIMOD that looks like a fancy storage container. It has everything that you need all nicely compacted into a small well designed space. I think they should slap some wheels onto these and they should replace caravans. Yes!
