- The NYT profiles photographer Nikola Tamindzic. “He uses long exposures, then shakes the camera while the shutter is still open, causing colors to blur and lights to streak. ‘I’m not recording what is really happening, but it’s something like what the brain is seeing late at night, especially if maybe you’re drunk or very excited,’ he said.” [Via] On his own site he offers one of the more punishing self portaits I’ve ever seen.
