Our friend Brendan Monroe’s show “Mammatus” just opened at Curator’s Cube in Tokyo. We stopped by the space last week and it all looked fantastic — a nice mix of drawing, painting and sculpture (especially loved the ceramics). The shows up until the 29th so if you happen to be in Japan go go go. Have a look at more images below!

A Selection Of My Favourite Images Found In 2016: 75 Photos By 75 Photographers

75by75-in-2016-1200

This week I took a look back through all the amazing photography we featured this year and wittled it all down to a selection of 75 photos by 75 photographers (actually 80 photographers as there were a few duos). If you’re a newer Booooooom reader and haven’t seen our previous year-end posts, check them out here: 20152014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009.

I wanna clarify that not all of these photos were shot this past year (many of them were), they are simply images I discovered during the past 12 months. Hope you enjoy this collection of images! I’d also love to hear from you which photographers and images you discovered this year (on Booooooom or elsewhere). Which images stuck with you, what did your 2016 look like?

Extremely Good Shit

seinfeld-2000

Extremely Good Shit is my new favourite online magazine. For each issue they ask a creative person to gather together a bunch of random Internet stuff they like. Issue Two was definitely my favourite so far as it was curated by @Seinfeld2000.
