The Twelves / Ticket Giveaway

The Twelves are comin’ to town!!!! These guys have pumped out some of my favourite remixes of the past couple years and many are calling them the next Daft Punk. I’m not sure about the comparison but their glorious BBC Essential Mix speaks for itself. I’m giving away two tickets to their Feb 4th show here in Vancouver, who wants them?

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.
