  • YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • hey mr de la hoz!

  • Colin

    I’d never really looked at your work before and its all good but i really enjoyed The Truth Is and Tom Cruise

  • Seb McLauchlan

    Hahaha thats a very inventive excuse, most people would have just kept walking and avoided eye contact!

    • im really interested in awkward situations and what lengths i will go to avoid them and often create a far more awkward situation. Essentially Curb Your Enthusiasm is my life.

  • Hehehehehee, I love your work. How large is this btw?

  • Great work Jeff! You show that honesty can be beautiful and funny in many ways.

  • Sometimes I hold my loose change in my fist because I’m afraid the jingling coins will attract panhandlers, and I won’t be able to bluff my way out with ‘Sorry, I don’t have any.” The downside is that my hand gets all sweaty and then I worry about having to meet someone new and give them a weird, clammy handshake.

  • I like the idea of this project, I’m intrigued to find out more and see the different lettering that comes out of it. I like the effect given with the letters not being straight.

  • Very powerful and mind-blowing work, I like the contrast between the colourful childish lettering and the deep complexity of human behaviour.

    Yesterday I walked past a woman asking for money. While I was saying “no im sorry” I was searching for my Ipod with my hand in my pocket and accidentally threw half of my spare change in front of her..

  • Terrel

    That is terrible… but funny!

    Once I was at the airport and saw an empty seat when every other was taken and sat in it chatting on my phone and eventually realized it said reserved for disabled or elderly so I got up and pretended to limp to the bathroom embarrassed that I had sat there for so long! But yes, relatable, lovely work!

    • hahahahha too good

  • Wybjorn

    one time at work i pretended i was deaf so i wouldnt have to talk to any customers

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.
