    I like the simple contrast there is used.
    Also the systematic way the pictures are shot in.

  • yeh really brilliant, lots of small victories!

  • Brilliant!

  • Takes my breath away!

  • These are all great finds!

  • Erin

    These are wonderful. Ghost bike makes me sad though.

  • so good! some of the better stuff i’ve seen on this site in a while, which is saying something

  • kim

    like this guys sense of humour.

  • I love the one with the tree growing through the fence. Nature is more powerful than metal. haha

  • lapetitefaon

    All brilliant though the ghost bike is by far my favorite so beautiful and eerie, even if I had not known what it was I get the feeling I would have found the photo very special no matter. It just has something about it.

      The Ghost Bike is not this artists invention The Ghost Bike is a widely known and used emblem all arund NYC and oher cities to commemorate cyclists that died in traffic accidents the Bikes are usually located at the site where the death occurred

  • Kelsey

    for most, if not all, of these photos, i feel like she’s poking quiet and gentle fun at how we don’t quite have full control over the things around us.

    and the mocking (not a great word to use in this case) is so easy and non-judgmental, it feels as though it’s coming from our mother or an old friend.

    i find the experience pleasing, to say the least.

    • ^agreed

      i can tell so much about Ariel’s sense of humour from just a few images

  • kevii

    awesomeness! they all are fun and cool, nicely done.

  • they seem to get better as they go along

  • zdx

    this is inspiring!!!

  • BOOOOOOOM!/Jeff, thanks for posting this! You always find the most inspiring artists.
    I really love how playful his photographs are. He has an amazing eye for pattern and colour, no? I will definitely have to keep an eye on his Flickr feed.

    • my pleasure – yes! do it, you will be continuously inspired!

Collection of 80 High-Res Textless Movie Posters


Not sure how this exists??? Someone has uploaded a collection of 80 high-resolution film posters stripped of any text. Can’t tell if they have next-level Photoshop skills or some other kind of voodoo that made this possible. In any case, thank you, Internet. Have a look at them all here. I included a bunch of my favourites below (there’s a common thread to the ones I picked).

*Edit – just discovered that the link I posted was actually a repost and this was originally posted by Reddit user Join_You_In_The_Sun, so I’ve updated the link in the post.

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
