Photography: Playing with food; Retouching; more
A lazy Sunday morning means a chance to catch up with photography around the Web:
- French pastry chef/photographer team Akiko Ida and Pierre Javelle play with food, creating miniature sculptures and tiny narratives. If you’re put off by their site’s dicey navigation, samples of their work can be found elsewhere. [Via]
- Michael Wolf’s Honk Kong portfolio goes exactly the opposite direction, throwing any sense of scale out the window (many thousands of them). [Via] The sense of unreality reminds me of these airborne shots from Mexico City. [Via]
- The NYT features Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin’s portraits of great performers of 2006.
- The Times also offers some great shots from the Olympic opening ceremonies.
- Retouchers at Fluid Effect present before & after samples of famous people. [Via] I’m always amazed that these folks permit their unretouched selves into the wild… See also the work of Glenn Feron, as well as Madonna before & after.
- Fine art photographer David Maisel explores geometry & color from the air. [Via]
