    Really love how the traffic flows around the table in the second. I feel a serious travel itch starting

    I feel like there are many city pictures with blurs like these done, but these pictures are great. Theres more that it captures. Awesome photos!

    Beautiful… very similar to Alexey Titarenko’s style…

    muy bueno! alguien sabe como hizo el efecto? si es por una técnica de fotografía, o con photoshop?

    I had the same reaction Colin. However I suspect they are products of photoshop, the static elements are questionable and it is so very clean cut. I could be wrong (i often am) and it doesn’t discredit them or detract from my appreciation… Good work

      i dont know what you mean products of photoshop, that’s how a long exposure works – static elements are more in focus and objects that move around become blurred. these are just perfectly exposed

    they make me really think how beautiful people are

    These are awesome…they have a 3d feel that you don’t get in regular images.

    Amazing use of low shutter speeds. Captures the chaos of the developing world wonderfully. Major props.


    Very nice

The Hateful Eight Roadshow


Director Quentin Tarantino and cinematographer Bob Richardson wanted their latest film, The Hateful Eight, to be the eleventh film ever to be shot in Ultra Panavision (as wide as widescreen gets) and with the help of the film company they were able to pull it off.

The Hateful Eight will be projected in 70mm in select theatres on Christmas day as a good old fashioned roadshow, meaning it will feature an overture, intermission, playbill, and extra footage!

Watch the featurette below and start the countdown.

This Pop-Up Book Folds into a Functioning Camera!


After numerous prototypes, Kelli Anderson perfected a sequence of cuts and folds that could turn an ordinary piece of paper into a fully functional camera. The Book is a Camera is the ultimate pop-up experience: a book that not only explains how cameras work but actually becomes one!

The coolest part is you can support Kelli and purchase the book here but she specifically designed her pinhole camera under a Creative Commons share-alike license so you can also download the template yourself, build it, examine it, and use the knowledge to even make your own variant!

Kelli and I both spoke at Blend here in Vancouver and her talk was one of my favourites. She spoke about a wide variety of her past work including her counterfeit New York Times newspaper (she produced hundreds of thousands of copies and distributed it on the streets of New York), her amazing stop-motion tribute to the Eameses’ iconic film “Power of Ten” using images sourced from Google Images, and her paper record player/wedding invitations.

She’s the kinda person it’s almost hard to write about because she’s doing so many wildly different things. She’s currently working on a music video so stayed tuned for that!

More images and a video of her book/camera below!
