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...]

Arthur Tress 1

When it comes to vivid and original nightmares, kids can out dream the rest of us. Their imagination runs rampant – during the day and at night – with little filter to differentiate between reality and fiction. These classic images from photographer Arthur Tress drive that point home. He asked children in the late 60s and early 70s to describe their fantasies and nightmares. Then he brought them to life in these particularly unnerving staged images. [Read more...]
