Michael Kenna

Photography by Michael Kenna. I have become a bit obsessed with this kind of dead silent, meditative, photography lately. I can’t remember where I first saw Kenna’s work but something about it felt very Japanese, like reading a haiku. Later I found out that most of the images I was looking at, had actually been shot in Japan.

Jemapur – Maledict Car

Japan’s Jemapur have a fantastic video for their song Maledict Car, directed by Kosai Sekine. To say this music video is a stunning exploitation of the kaleidoscope effect would be an understatement.

The band is on myspace as well:

Johan Willner

More photography from Sweden. Johan Willner. Especially love his black and white work, some of which is more than a decade old! Photography, like a fine wine, only gets better with age (or so I’m told, I’m the guy who always buys the “house” wine cuz its usually the cheapest).

Your Face Blog

A couple months ago I wrote excitedly about Damien Weighill’s Your Face Blog. Send him a photo of yourself and he whips up an illustration of you! Well guess whose mugshot showed up on the site yesterday.

That’s me, in the pink.

David Fincher for Nike.

Director David Fincher (Fight Club, Se7en, The Game) teamed up with Emmanuel Lubezki (Children of Men) for a Nike Football (American football) ad that lives up to its billing. The ad is simply titled, Fate.

The cherry on top for me is the fact that the music is a remix of Ennio Morricone’s “Ecstasy of Gold” (The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, aka the best movie ever made and my favourite soundtrack to draw to).

Todd Hido

An absolutely stunning series of photos by Todd Hido simply called Homes at Night. Low quality internet jpgs definitely aren’t doing this work any justice. Downright eerie, I love it.
