Alex Prager

The first thing that came to mind when I saw Alex Prager’s photography, was Hitchcock. As far as I’m concerned if you make anything that reminds anyone of Alfred Hitchcock, you’re doing something right. This is some faaantastic work.

This last one isn’t so “Hitchcock” but it was too good not to include.

    this is really really cool

  • Nice, I like these a lot.

  • these are sick… I’m infatuated with the 60’s & 70’s. Your right Jeff; these look like stills from some of Hitchcock’s work.

  • Jenny

    also reminds me of Cindy Sherman’s Untitled Film Stills, no?

    The photo with the plane in the background looks familiar. I think The Stranger used it on one of their covers, but I can’t be positive.

  • Jonny

    These are an exact copy of Cindy Sherman’s work, who did them 25 years ago. These are not interesting or original in any way. This makes me so mad to see.

A Camera Made from 32,000 Drinking Straws

Photographer Michael (Mick) Farrell and Cliff Haynes perfected a way of capturing images using a wooden box filled with 32,000 drinking straws. Started in 2007, and undergoing several different versions, the Straw Camera basically works by processing the light collected through each straw (as opposed to a pinhole camera which creates an image from a single point).

Due to the multitude of perspectives the resulting image looks a bit like a pointillist painting made up of many, tiny dots. See more images below or click here to check out the book recently released about the project!
