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.

“Reely and Truly” features (in order of appearance): Mark Lebon, Dick Jewell, Juergen Teller, Jack Webb, Sean Vegezzi, Jason Evans, Nigel Shafran, Fumiko Imano, Charchakaj Waikawee, Lina Scheynius, Nobuyoshi Araki, Takashi Homma, Ari Marcopoulos, Jill Freedman, Nick Sethi, Asger Carlsen, Arne Svenson, Petra Collins, Tim Barber, Renee Cox, Mario Sorrenti, and Lele Saveri.

      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.

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
