This week I’m giving away four camera straps courtesy of Cecilia. A little bit about the straps:
“The full-grain leather is selected from premium Argentinian cowhides. The hides are finished in the USA with surface treatments that give the leather its durability. The alpaca textiles are handwoven by weavers in the Peruvian highlands. The backstrap loom weaving techniques and traditional patterns are a heritage of Andean culture. Sourced from mills in the USA, the reinforced webbing runs through the ends of the straps to ensure strength and reliability. The straps are assembled in León, Mexico. We work with some of the most experienced artisans of leather goods to craft a product of The Americas.”
If you’d like to snag one of these camera straps, leave a comment below and upload a photo you have taken recently. I’ll let the folks at Cecilia pick their four favourite images in two weeks (4 different winners).
These images were created by photographer Taylor Curry without a camera, using a process known as Cliché-Verre.
“The Cliche-Verre, to me, is quite literally Nature as the Negative. The items are placed directly onto a 4×5 or 8×10 glass plate. Using the color enlarger, I project the specimen onto 8×10 color film, RA-4 Color paper or Polaroid film capturing the image.”
Lots of beautiful images below.

Many artists have reimagined famous album covers over the years, but I don’t think there’s been a series as impressive as this. Artist Harvezt has painstakingly created the other side to many iconic album covers, revealing what the reverse shot would look like if a camera had been placed in the background of the original cover. It’s quite remarkable the way the artist matches perspectives, colours, even illustrative styles. Have a look at more famous covers from a completely new perspective below!
