Band Geeks Put A New Twist On Hadoukening

Monday 06.03.2013 , Posted by

1 Vadering

This one time at band camp, some Japanese kids took over the photo meme known as Hadoukening. Sometimes called Vadering in the US, the trend was started by some Japanese school girls imitating manga martial arts moves from Street Fighter that sent their friends blasting through the air, spread through the world, and reached its peak about two months ago. But these young band kids have revived it, blowing their friends away with tubas and calling it “Tuba Gun” (チューバ砲 or “Chuuba Juu”). [Read more...]

All I Own: Peoples Possessions Up Against the Wall

Monday 03.19.2012 , Posted by

What would everything you own look like against one wall? Photographer Sannah Kvist gave her subjects a simple but fun assignment: take all your worldly possessions and build a sculpture in any way you want. In the case of some, that sculpture might look like a mountain, but in the case of these young people from Sweden, they just have a small pile. All of her subjects where born in the 80′s, which is part of the charm of the portraits and an explanation of why they own so few things. [Read more...]

Photographer Peter Lippmann has been traveling the countryside, seeking out vintage abandoned automobiles and creating some haunting, yet stunningly beautiful images. In each photograph the cars, forgotten and parked for years, are overtaken by the surrounding foliage: trees poke through fenders, leaves emerge from old chrome grills and vines make a home out of the machines interior.

Going to Adrian Fisk’s site is like jumping through a portal to another world; a world that will leave you more enlightened.

I looked for young Chinese aged from 16 – 30 years, gave them a piece of paper and simply told them they could write what ever they wanted to on the piece of paper, I then photographed them holding the paper.” Make sure to visit his site adrianfisk.com, and while there check out his documentary about the human hair trade. It is absolutely fascinating. [Read more...]
