Photographer Spotlight: Greer Muldowney

Turbines4

Boston-based photographer Greer Muldowney chronicles the changes to New England’s landscape in light of green energy initiatives. Due to extremely lucrative tax breaks, the abrupt appearance of wind turbines in certain areas can’t help but draw attention to developers’ opportunism more than their commitment to the environment. Some images are so awkward you’d think they were photoshopped. See more from “Urban Turbines” below.

Massive Mural in Cairo Stretches Across Over 50 Buildings

el-seed10

Tunisian-French artist eL Seed’s incredible art piece in Cairo, Egypt incorporates over 50 buildings in a neighbourhood that houses the city’s garbage collectors. Entirely self-funded, the mural features Arabic calligraphy that translates to “If one wants to see the light of the sun, he must wipe his eyes.”

Due to the massive scale the whole thing is only visible from a hill at the district’s edge. The area was specifically chosen to avoid catching the attention of local officials, and the artist and his friends were able to complete the entire work without being arrested or harassed. Check out more images below!

While amusing, the installations are part of a larger commentary on the extreme living conditions in which many people are forced to live, such as the situation in Bucharest where over 600 people are living in the sewer system. More images from “Borderlife” below.
