  • This is so much more than skateboarding, the first video is my favourite for the video editing in slow motion, it has great flow but I can’t quite touch on the word for how it makes me feel, it’s almost like ballet with a sort of power about it. Martin is an incredible skater and an artist himself, they way he moves and uses his surroundings, it’s so free. With some of the moves he pulls, combined with the slow motion, he is almost turned into a moving sculpture, I’d love to see someone make something like that, a whole area filled with sculptures of skaters pulling different moves.

  • tess

    truth be told, i was getting pretty excited as soon as i recognised park guell in the photograph.. but woah! and the music is magic aaahh! and all of the giant WTF’s kindof reminded me of the way they shoot martial arts own giant WTF’s, anyway.. amazing yeah.

  • absolutely brilliant !

  • diogo

    omg!!!!!
    simply amazing

  • Kilian Martin is an amazing skater. I have had the oppurtunity several times to photograph him. All amazing films from Brett Novak.

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.

A portion of proceeds from each event go to a girl-positive organization, and this year’s festival (Jan 27-29) will support Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls LA, a 501c3 social justice organization using loud music to nurture self-esteem and self-expression in young girls.
