  • I love these. Is there a site for them?

  • Man, these are so cool. I would love to see someone living in the Western World do this…let’s just say you’d def need a wide angled lense.

  • Peter Menzel did this in the early 90s with families from all over the world in a book called Material World. It was amazing to see a portrait of an American family with all of their things next to a photo like one of these. He also did a book called Hungry Planet which did the same thing but with food. Love the color palate of these.

  • Pam

    I was thinking the same thing as Dave who commented before me. Imagine how long it would take to put all the items in your home onto your front yard..crazy! These photos are awesome :)

  • rod

    These are very interesting photos. I’ve once posted a similar article called “China’s 56 Ethnic Groups” The photos reveal the traditional clothing of the groups in China. Check it out if you fancy http://creativeroots.org/?p=5412

    it’s a good idea, altough not a new one. The German Peter Minzel did exactly the same thing, about six years ago. -> http://www.amazon.de/So-lebt-Mensch-Peter-Menzel/dp/3570190633

Photo of Namib-Naukluft National Park in Namibia Looks Like a Painting

This is not a painting! The image above is a photo by Frank Krahmer (see the image larger). I saw this pop up on Reddit and had to investigate.

The image is from Namib-Naukluft National Park which is part of the Namib Desert (considered the world’s oldest desert according to Wikipedia). I found a similar image on National Geographic which gives you a sense of the scale of the dunes and camel thorn trees. The image below was shot by Frans Lanting.

Book Giveaway: Chromaphilia by Stella Paul

Phaidon is releasing a new book all about colour and art. Written by author and art historian Stella Paul, Chromaphilia invites readers to consider the many ways that colour has been theorized and utilized to express meaning and emotion throughout different time-periods and cultures.

Each chapter of the book covers a specific colour (Red, Blue, Purple, Gold, Yellow, Green, White, Grey and Black), and offers insight, artwork and anecdotes you probably didn’t know. Like how Yves Klein’s obsession with a particular shade of blue led him to develop his own customized (and patented) paint. Or how many crushed bugs it used to take to make the coveted red dye used for royal garments. (The answer is 70,000!)

Check out more images from Chromaphilia below or grab yourself a copy when it’s released on March 13th. We also have one to give away! To snag the book, simply post a link to any Booooooom article in the comment section below and write 1 sentence about the artist’s use of colour.

The winner will be selected in two weeks!
