Unless you’re one of those cool people who makes a daily trip to space via NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day, you might not have noticed that the long running and much loved site is currently down. The site has been running consistently for over 18 years in a co-effort between NASA and Michigan Technological University… but due to some unexpected budget cuts amounting to a 97% cut in workforce (and in other news much of the US federal government), we’re not getting our daily dose of fascinating imagery from outer space.

Once Upon a Time: Intimate Bathtub Images from Javier Campuzano

Friday 10.04.2013 , Posted by

Javier Campuzano

It’s intimate, it’s emotional, it’s helpless. These are some of the words to describe the photos that Javier Campuzano captures in his series focusing on nudes curled up in the bathtub. Campuzano raises himself above and shoots a birds eye view of the subject in the tub. Upon looking at the final work, one could be moved to identify with feelings of helplessness, hurt and sorrow.

National Beard & Mustache Championships by Greg Anderson 1

Think you’ve got facial hair? Nope. I thought I had a mustache until I saw these absolutely ridiculous portraits from the 4th Annual National Beard and Mustache Championships in New Orleans. There are up-do’s, out-do’s, loop-d-loops… well, I don’t know what to call them. It’s basically face-based sculpture, it’s bizarre and wacky. We’re thankful Las Vegas-based photographer Greg Anderson was there to capture the majesty of these growing works of art. [Read more...]

Heavenly Bodies: Bejeweled Roman Skeletons from Europe

Saturday 09.21.2013 , Posted by

Heavenly Bodies 4

It’s a case of mistaken identity, but one that has bizarrely left skeletons across Europe adorned with masses of ornate jewels and gold. These macabre skeletons are part of a group taken from Roman catacombs in the seventeenth century and completely decorated with jewels by teams of nuns, mostly from German-speaking lands. Why go to such great lengths for the dead of another country? These dead, known as ‘the catacomb saints,’ were often mistakenly identified as early christian martyrs put to death by the Romans.

Make Like a Tree and Leaf! The Tree People by Marko Prelic

Thursday 09.19.2013 , Posted by

Tree People 8

I couldn’t help the cheap joke in the title, but these Photoshopped images from serbian photographer Marko Prelic are truly tasteful… if not a bit whimsical too. In each, we see a normal human figure, photographed in black and white, complete with a tree for their head. This unusual vision could have a number of symbolically tree-based meanings.

How Creatives Work: Reinvigorating Analog Processes with Nick Brandreth

Wednesday 09.18.2013 , Posted by

Car_field_Scottsville

Nick Brandreth is unusual in today’s Great Recession professional environment. He gave up a lucrative career in the world of New York City advertising photography in order to follow his passion for art. He came up to the George Eastman House (the foremost museum on the history of photography) in Rochester New York, home of the once-prosperous Kodak Corporation and the world-renowned photography school at Rochester Institute of Technology, which he had previously attended. Here, he apprenticed with Mark Osterman, Process Historian at the Eastman House, in order to learn about alternative and historical methods of creating photographs. He gave up shooting digital in order to try to reinvigorate analog processes which have all but disappeared. Now he teaches at the Eastman House and will be trying to finance his new project through Kickstarter. It consists of photographing areas that would be affected by fracking and natural gas drilling in Upstate and Western New York in order to bring attention to the issue, using the alternative methods of photography he has taken as his medium.
