A Short Way From Here

I know you all are sick of me apologising for being a bad blogger so I’m not going to :) Instead, I’m going to let you look at my new book!
It’s a photobook called “A Short Way From Here” and it’s published on Blurb books. This is the result of a photographic project on the seascape and documenting it in an unfamiliar way.
Hope you like it :)

Unless You Will issue 24

Unless You Will issue 24

Blogging about this today, it’s an Australian online photo magazine. This issue is concerned with landscape photography and how artists connect to the land and photograph it.

The issue features 10 photographer’s practices on landscape photography and a really nice quote from Seneca in “Letters From A Stoic” –

“Are you telling me

not to investigate

the natural world?

Are you trying to bar
me from the whole
of it and restrict me
to a part of it?
Am I not to inquire
into the identity of
the artist who created
that universe?
Or the process by
which the huge mass
became subject to
law and order?
Or the nature of the
one who collected
the things that were
scattered apart, sorted
apart the things that
were commingled,
and when all things
lay in formless chaos
allotted them their
individual shapes?
Or the source of the
light (is it fire or is it
something brighter?)
Am I supposed not
to inquire into this
sort of thing?”

Broken Flowers by Jon Shireman (Photoshoots I’ve loved #20)

These photos are from Jon Shireman’s “Broken Flowers“. He soaked the flowers in liquid nitrogen and then shattered them for his 2010 series.

What do you think of them? Is it too weird a concept?

Birthday Girls (photoshoots I’ve loved #18)

Apologies for not posting on Friday, I was mega busy over the weekend and just completely forgot. This week in this series, it’s an editorial from “W” magazine in Korea entitled “Birthday Girls.” Photographed by Hong Jang Hyun, the girls all wear colourful wigs and pastel dresses from Louis Vuitton’s spring 2012 collection. The set designs are reminiscent of Tim Walker or David LeCappelle. (which is probably why I liked this so much!)ImageImageImageImageImageImage

What do you think of this? Is all the colour “too much”?

Tuesday post series #4: vidoes I’ve loved

This incredible. It’s a time-lapse of European cities. It’s shot so well, there’s no flicker between shots, the transitions are smooth. Plus it’s shot with the camera I own, so it’s amazing to see what could be done with it!
