    I hope you are aware of the fact that Mr Soth is not just an amateur, he is a Magnum photographer…

      Everyone is so proud of needing a Magnum photographer. You can fit a regular photographer over your head, so I can’t imagine why you’d need a bigger one.

      this site is full of people who aren’t amateurs!

    I ADORE his work. No one will ever believe me, but I received an e-mail from him once. I think I deleted it on accident, but anyways- I love him so much. He’s a fantastic photographer.

    His photographs are fantastic, I wonder if he photographs on impulse, or if there is a narrative behind his work.

Elaborate Salt Labyrinths by Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto

yamamoto7

Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto’s incredible, labyrinthine installations are the result of 45 hours of meticulously piled grains of salt, strewn inside a medieval castle in the South of France. I’ve posted about his work several times (here, here, here) but I never grow tired of it.

See more images of “Floating Garden” and “Labyrinth” below or as part of the exhibition Univers’sel at Aigues-Mortes until November 30th.

Google Cultural Institute’s New Art Camera

Google

It took the Google Cultural Institute five years to archive 200 artworks in super high resolution (we’re talking gigapixels). Now they’ve scanned 1,000 in just a few months all thanks to a new camera! The device, dubbed the Art Camera, has cut down capture time from a full day to around 30 minutes. With 20 cameras built, Google has been lending them out to major institutions in cities across the globe free of charge!

It is pretty incredible how far you can zoom into the artworks; have a look here. Watch the video below.
