Land of the Free. A great series of portraits by Steve Schofield. I never really got into Star Wars but I did secretly watch Star Trek: The Next Generation quite a bit (You did too, YOU LIAR!). These days I’m not into Sci-Fi all that much, but I do love finding photography and other documentation of people that are totally emersed in very specific sub-cultures!
I have finally started a Facebook Group! I originally started a Fan Page but Mark Zuckerman (aka the world’s youngest billionaire) really didn’t make the Fan Pages easy to promote so the Group will replace the old Fan Page. If you’re looking for a quick way to promote your own work or share interesting links, join the group and post to your heart’s content.
I have never met William Lamson but I feel like we would really get along. He takes pictures and makes wonderful little videos, and really seems to enjoy what he does. He has had solo exhibitions all over the world and currently resides in NY. What I like about his work is that there is as much humor to it as there is beauty. Some of them made me laugh and others were surreal to the point they became almost meditative. William was kind enough to upload a few of them to youtube just so I could post about them!
This first video is called Tundra. There is something really beautiful about this piece. It’s so quiet and simple. It’s like haiku poetry for your eyes.
The Big Picture has some spectacular photos from the opening of the Beijing Olympics. With over 15,000 performers and a budget that made Water World look like my grad film I think it’s safe to say it was the most amazing Olympic opener to date. The fireworks may have been fake but these photos are 100% real.
