Guns, kids, and salt

  • Magnum photographer Philip Jones Griffiths knows war.  He reflects on violence & its tools in this Guns and Kids photo essay presented by Slate.  The piece brings to mind these ladies–and these.
  • The subjects of It’s All Good couldn’t be less so–junkies, crackheads, gangsters and their families in NYC, "where escape is one rock, one shot, one Glock away."  Gallery. [Via]
  • PingMag interviews Edward Burtynsky, whose Manufactured Landscapes images chronicle humanity’s impact on the earth.  (Not long ago I kind of harshed on one of Burtynsky’s photos.  It certainly has more impact in the context of his larger efforts.)
  • Chris Jordan (mentioned recently) is using the synthetic world of Second Life to present his "Running the Numbers"–depicting the scale of human consumption.
  • The miniature City of Salt comes from Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick–the photographers behind the similarly amazing Apollo Prophecies.
  • In Salt Dreams, Jimmy and Dena Katz chronicle the racers, rocketeers, and pink flamingos of the great Salt Flats.  More info is here. [Via]
