He took successful people of all races and showed them first as the way people might falsely judge them, followed by a representation of who they are as people, demonstrating how they serve the world.

Christian Lonsdale has a different way of painting the world – he does it from his home, traveling the globe using Google Maps and digitally painting the fantastic places he finds. After locating a suitable place captured in panoramic form (it could be anywhere from Iceland to Tasmania), he selects a good perspective, sits down with Photoshop and a pen tablet, and paints what he sees. It’s a far cry from painting in situ, but it does demonstrate a creative way to get a custom view of the world, regardless of your location or frequent flyer status. [Read more...]

Dillon Marsh For What It's Worth 1

Mining has always been a balance of give and take. On the one hand, precious materials useful for humans are extracted from the ground, and on the other, gigantic scars are left on the landscape. In his latest series, For What It’s Worth, photographer Dillon Marsh (who we’ve covered before) visualizes the quantity of copper and diamonds unearthed at mines around his home of South Africa. Using computer generated spheres to represent the material, he’s given us a strikingly clear picture of sacrifice and gain. [Read more...]
