    pretty. modest. i like the forest, and the folded lawn chairs on the roof.

    • yea i like the chairs on the roof and the first photo looks even better seen larger on her site

  • P

    made me smile.

  • Love all of these but the first one is particularly gorgeous

  • the picture with the chairs on the roof – amazing!

  • Ian McAllister

    I must say, this first image took me by quite a surprise. Why? Because that walking ramp is right outside my bedroom window. Here in Reno, NV we don’t have art. It’s more like aren’t than art. And as I curl up in my cube every morning and throw another blog on the fire, it is quite a rarity that the pretty pictures don’t come from culture catastrophe’s like NYC. Thank you Megan, I did not know my old school library, where the youngdumb once festered wild hormonal possibilities, had turned into such a depressing piece of shit.

    • i think that photo of the ramp is beautiful

  • emily

    you have to look for a while befor you notice all the little small things – ian you sound a wee bit like a complete philistine.

  • Laura

    It’s a photo of a RAMP. And a photo of a window a 6 year old could have taken, with minimal thought put into composition or even subject mattter. It’s photographers like this that make the art world a joke.

    • sceneitall

      It is what you make of it Laura, as is LIFE.

  • Kelci McIntosh

    Dear Laura,

    if you are going to criticize photography by plainly saying that anyone can compose that image is completely irrelanvent. i want to see your work and as a photographer i want to maturely discuss viewpoints rather than just give a negative critique cause in reality you aren’t showing anything better or bringing any new feedback to what could evolve her work or good points you see.

    dont be bitchy cause your jealous.

    Laura, instead of jumping to some rude conclusion and using the cliché phrase that child could’ve taken that photo, why don’t you make an educated critique as to why you don’t like the image. We’re all respected and respectful artists here (for the most part) and it’s out of context to give such a useless critigue. Take your sassy, unhelpful remarks elsewhere, it’s people like you we need less of in the “art world”.

  • Emily

    These have proved a pretty controversial set of photographs
    I know this is a cliché, but beauty really is in the eye of the beholder, so the way you interpret these is, in the end, up to you. But normally a photographer dose not create what they photograph but translates the mood and aesthetics of a place into an image, something that Megan Matthers has done very well. Even if you don’t like the subjects/scenery to which she has chosen to apply her talent, maybe you could see it as a dry comment about life… maybe… or something like that

    Emily,

    Beautifullyand perfectly said.

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.
