If you have time to watch one video today, this is the one. “Reely and Truly” is a fantastic experimental short documentary featuring over 30 contemporary photographers. Director Tyrone Lebone shot on almost every film format available: 65mm, 35mm, super 16mm, 16mm, and super 8mm. The result is a beautifully layered visual essay on the practice of photography.

      i think it’s also valuable to note although this is a short film about visuals and photography the audio bites are amazing and in tune with the imagery. i was distracted by something and stepped away from watching momentarily but even in the next room i was being entertained by what i was hearing.

  • I feel so charged now. Thank you so much for sharing this one.

    seriously the best film on photography I’ve ever seen. Brilliant !

    • ya it somehow feels more like a photo than it does a film

  • Nicholas J Hosking

    cool

  • I needed this. Thank you for making this film. Brilliant!!

  • lovely!! thanks for sharing!!

  • An interesting short film. I’m new to the art scene and appreciated the exposure to photographers that were previously unknown to me.

    I can’t help feeling it lacks context but as a visual thing very satisfying. More personal than constructive but thats what photography is like. It leaves you asking more questions than it answer which is a sign of a great photograph.

“Happy Breakfast” is a psychedelic zine by set designer and artist Gary Card. Filled with colourful and chaotic images that blur the line between cute and creepy, what began as a commission for Japanese magazine Them, has turned into something of an ongoing experiment thanks to London-based publishers Katie Bagley and Ferry Gouw of New World International.
