Urban decay, pigs on mopeds, & other good photos
- Art collective Henry VIII’s Wives uses elderly Glaswegians to re-enact iconic photos of the 20th century. Triiippy… My wife says she’d really like to hear the conversations between the photographer & the pensioners. ("Yeah, so there was this little girl who got burned by napalm, and we want you to play her!") [Via]
- Also in the vein of photo reinactment, check out these classic photos done via Lego. (Presumably the conversation with the Legos is shorter.) [Via]
- I’m loving the portfolio of Diane Varner; I especially like this leaf bagel. Her site talks about some of her Camera Raw & Photoshop post-processing techniques, and on PhotoshopSupport.com she discusses her work & ideas.
- I can’t tell you much about it, but I like this neat panoramic timelapse image. [Via]
- Henrik Kam captures urban decay in images from Hunter’s Point . His work appears in Photolucida’s list of Top 50 list of photographers for 2006.
- "Sleepycity is photographically deconstructing your city." I like this nifty bit of light painting in what looks like some sci-fi set.
- If that’s up your alley, see also these ’70s light paintings. [Via]
- My friend Khoi just returned from Vietnam, where he captured this pig riding a moped (so to speak).
