ffffinally!

I ffffinally got myself an invite to ffffound! Hooray. For whatever reason it is next to impossible to get an invite to join the site.

Anyways, I was poking around the site and came across these great images used to promote ffffound’s in-house t-shirts. What do you do when you can’t get a decent looking model for your photoshoot? You force Paris Hilton and Kate Moss to model your gear by ripping up the photos and sticking them together! Brilliant.

And then I remembered I had seen something similar to this recently. Evan over at Curse of the Multiples did something similar in a lookbook for a company called Industry. A little different, and pretty cool as well:

So now you have two options for shooting a lookbook with ugly models. I want to clarify that I’m not saying these models were definitely ugly, I’m just saying you have options. If you happen to be one of the models whose pretty face has been obscured and you want to prove just how beautiful you are, feel free to email me a photo of yourself along with your phone number.

    Man, I’ve yet to get my hands on an invite!

    Hahah…Hate to be one of those models. What’s the point of modeling all these clothes if no one can see you face.

    Oh yeah, the extravagant lifestyle and easy money. I stand corrected.

    krissy if i had an invite to give you i would.

    for anyone that’s looking for one, here’s how i got mine:

    if you post in there you have a good chance of getting one, there’s a guy organizing it so you get one and he takes your invite and passes it on to the next person in line for one (which is why i don’t have an invite to give)

OURO Collective Presents “PACE” and “Kaleido”

OURO-PACE-KALEIDO

 

Heads up for anyone in the Vancouver area, our friends OURO Collective are presenting their new show featuring two works “PACE” (choreographed by OURO) and “Kaleido” (choreographed by Tentacle Tribe). Their work combines street and contemporary dance in a really unique way, and I’m excited to see this show. I’ve shot a couple of their rehearsals and have been planning a project with them in the future!

This is an event for anybody (all ages), and I especially recommend it if you’re a creative person – seeing a lot more dance shows in the past couple years has really inspired the things I’m working on in unexpected ways.

There are 3 evening shows May 5th-7th @ 7:30pm, and 1 matinee show May 8th @ 1:30pm. Advance tickets are available online here.

FYI tickets are slightly cheaper online vs at the door, and their previous show sold out and people were turned away at the door. The show has been kindly sponsored by Converse, with on-going support from Craft Academy SalonSpotlight Dance Centre and Anna Wyman School of Dance Arts.

Mind-Bending Photo Manipulations by Artist Laurent Rosset

Rosset5

A selection of clever photo manipulations by photographer/architect Laurent Rosset, another artist experimenting with the illusion of landscapes which seem to fold back on themselves. You may recall Aydin Büyüktas’ work “Flatland” utilized a drone to create a very similar effect.

More of Rosset’s images below.
