  • The first is awesome, and the landscape these are placed in is killer.

  • Very interesting concept!

  • Are these photos of paintings or this some kind of Photoshop voodoo?

    • with the image within image works, he shoots the area (eastern washington), returns home to make large prints, returns to the same scene and constructs the new piece to be photographed. other works involve merely moving parts of the scene, like this pile of dirt which was carefully rotated and rebuilt in place… http://chrisengman.com/index.php?p=dust-to-dust&w=dust-to-dust stellar work!

      • Ok, now it makes more sense. Thanks!

  • I am always inspired by the creativity show on this blog!
    Have a great day.
    Take care,

    rené magritte?

  • Nambo

    BADASS!!!!!! 😀

  • These photos are great and your blog is pure inspiration 🙂

  • These are really captivating, trying to understand them, I love how it looks like the canvases have been painted, it took me a while to see the second board in the first photo. I love that you have to figure the images out, you can perceive them in your own way, as to how they work. My favourites are the first and last simply for the way they make you think about them a bit longer than the other two to understand them. I really like the setting chosen too.

    is anybody else thinking Storm Thorgerson?

  • he kinda rules right now in these parts of the NW, hard to fault that, he rocks it

Collection of 80 High-Res Textless Movie Posters

textless-movieposters30

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.
