1,000,000 pageviews in 30 days!

We are growing at an alarming rate! We’ve had over 1,000,000 pageviews in just the last 30 days, and we’re still less than a year old! The Facebook Group is so big now, they won’t let me send you all messages anymore (good problem I guess).

So I just wanted to take a second to say thanks to all of you for the support! I feel like I know many of you now (especially the frequent commentors), and there is definitely a great creative community forming here. I love running the site and hope to eventually make it my full-time job! Keep your eyes peeled, there’s lots of fun things coming…

Photographer Daniel Ranalli Spends Two Decades Capturing Snail Trails

“Spiral #9” (1996)

 

Massachusetts-based photographer Daniel Ranalli has spent more than 20 years on his “Snail Drawings,” a series which consists of one image of neatly configured snails and a second image of the unique patterns made when the snails were left to their own devices.

While a simple enough concept, Ranalli sees the project as a reflection of the inherent randomness of life and our inability to control the results or elements of a situation no matter how hard we might try! See more of Ranalli’s work below or on display at Classic Photographs Los Angeles January 21-22.
