What you’re looking at is not a discarded cigarette package, it’s a detailed painting by artist Tom Pfannerstill on a carved piece of basswood. His artworks are made based on objects he finds in the street, which he carefully catalogs, noting the time and place of each. These re-created artifacts act as a very personal record of his movements through time and space. For him, creating these 3D memories is “strangely comforting in a world that is increasingly electronic and virtual”.

“Through The Ground Glass” is a stunning portrait of Joseph Allen Freeman, a large format photographer. I imagine there was a lot of pressure on the directors, Taylor Hawkins and Nick Bolton, in trying to capture a subject on video when that subject is someone who shoots large format film. They did it brilliantly though, the footage is gorgeous. It’s also really great to hear Freeman speak so candidly about the process. Watch the video below.
