The project was created by Netherland’s Lindley Warren. The photos here are ones that my friend Jennilee Marigomen contributed to the project. This first one is her favourite (and mine too) – it is the photo for the word, Lost. If you are a photographer, they are currently accepting submissions! Head on over there.

  • I found Jennilee on Flickr and have been following her work ever since… she has an incredible eye to discover the fantastic in the landscape of the everyman…

  • Ugh. I hate it when designers use graphics to render all the text for a web site. Ever hear of font-family: Garamond? Slow load times. No ability to resize the tiny type. Must be a nightmare to maintain.

    Pretty photos though.

  • ^you should send them some helpful tips, some people just dont know those things – good feedback

    Tiff – yes she is incredibly talented! find her series of monstrous looking hedges

  • what a delightful project! it’s going under the “poetic” folder of my bookmarks.

  • woah!
    thanks for the bloggage jeff.
    thanks for the kind words tiff, you are so nice.

    happy new years to you both. :)

  • I’m in love with the deer!
    check out jennille polaroids…very cool!

Are the Similarities Between Trump and Hitler TIME Covers Purely Coincidental?

trump-hitler-time-cover0

TIME Magazine has just announced their “Person of the Year” is Donald Trump. Twitter users were quick to point out the striking similarities between this cover, shot by photographer Nadav Kander, and the Adolf Hitler cover from April 1941. Hitler was also named “Person of the Year” in 1938.

Many are also suggesting that the “M” in TIME gives Donald Trump the appearance of having devil horns. Are people reading too much into this or were these intentional decisions? Have a look at both cover images below.
