“Trains in Motion”, photos by Aaron Durand. More below.
I got an email and a book from photographer Eylül Aslan recently, and while her book is gorgeous, her email is honestly the best thing I’ve been sent since I started this site. I featured her work several years ago (see the post here) so it was quite a surprise to get an email like this, completely out of the blue:
I felt so encouraged reading this, there are definitely days when I’m not as motivated to work on Booooooom so this kinda thing energizes me to keep it going. Anyways, I’ve posted a bunch of images from Eylül’s beautiful book “Trauerweide” (which can be ordered here) below.
That little guy up on that cliff there is one of the most passionate photographers I’ve ever met. His name is Ian Ruhter and unless you’ve been living under a rock you’re already familiar with his Silver and Light project that’s seen his life savings become an old delivery truck / giant mobile camera. If this is news to you watch this, and this, and read about the time I met him in Vancouver.
Ian’s latest film sees him, and his co-conspirators Lane and Will, return to Yosemite a year and a half after what Ian calls his biggest failure in his life. “Yosemite” is a huge milestone in Ian’s inspiring project. Watch the video below!
