Amy Stein

“Domesticated” is a brilliant series by photographer Amy Stein. If the photos look a little unnatrual to you it’s for good reason, most of the animals are stuffed (rented from a local taxidermist)! Stein is interested in the transition between wild and domesticated and she constructs moments where one encounters the other. The series comes out of her fascination with hunting culture and our desire to domesticate wild things by taming them or killing and stuffing them.

I first came across Amy Stein back when her “Halloween in Harlem” series was popping up everywhere and I didn’t immediately identify her as the same photographer. Definitely head over to her portfolio, she ain’t no one trick pony.

    I think the woman who got attacked by a black bear while gardening in her yard in poco wouldn’t find this beautiful, but I sure do.

  • harsh! yea her work really is some of the best i’ve seen in awhile

  • Jessie Cacciola

    i have such a love for this series. so nice to see it again! i especially love the birds at McDonalds’ — it’s bad enough we eat like that, but then animals end of eating what we discard.

  • Jolin

    these are sick.. but man a desire to kill animals or stuff themmm – bit much.

    The first photo in the set actually happens (at least once) annually when the Rossland public outdoor pool is open.
    Better not to smell like coconut or a “banana boat” in that situation.

  • my god, this is exraordinary fine;

  • Wild!

    I love it

35mm Camera Made Entirely with 3D Printing

slo2

SLO is a 35mm camera created by 3D designer Amos Dudley, every part of which is 3D printed, including the lenses (although those took about 5 – 6 hours to be sanded down by hand). Designed with a modular lens and shutter system, the lenses can be swapped in/out and longer exposure photos achieved using the shutter buttons along the top. More images of SLO below! You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
