“Feathers” Camera-less Photography by Taylor Curry

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.

“The Dark Side of the Covers” Iconic Album Art Reversed by Artist Harvezt

The Beatles – Abbey Road

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!

If I understand this correctly, this work by Rachel Wolfson is made by generating a bunch of texture maps in a 3D program. She splits them up, and uses them to make gouache paintings. The final work is made by assembling these painted versions back together.

“Burning Questions” by James Victore

Designer James Victore has a really great Youtube Channel you should subscribe to. It’s called “Burning Questions” and he uses the outlet to directly answer questions sent to him, about life and making good work. The man definitely knows a thing or two, having some of his brilliant posters remain in MoMA’s collection. I should note the image at the top of this post is not his work, it was drawn by his friend, artist Jon Burgerman, for one of the intros.

James and I emailed back and forth a bit and he was as friendly and down to earth as he is in the videos. I asked him to pick out a few of his favourite videos so far and he kindly obliged, adding that he loves reading the heartfelt comments. So if any of the videos strike a chord with you, leave him a message, I know he’ll appreciate it!

Have a look at the videos James selected below:
