I can’t remember where I found these photos, but Frédéric Fontenoy is kind of amazing. Made between 1988 and 1990 these photos show these amazing blurred, abstract of photos of a man, I’m guessing Fontenoy, jumping, backflipping and doing all sorts of contortions, but they’re all on one photo. I really have no idea how he did these, I can only guess he left the shutter open quite a while, but it’s pretty rad that he did these 20 years ago.
Check out more of this photos by clicking here, though some of his other work is definitely NSFW.
One of my favorite photographers Ryan McGinley has a new exhibit coming up called Moonmilk, which will be opening September 10th at the Alison Jacques Gallery in London. This time around Ryan took a bunch of sexy naked models into a bunch of underground caves and lava tubes. It’s quite brilliant what he can do with lighting and scenery. I kind of feel like his more recent work has almost shifted to landscape photography, there just happens to be a couple of people speckled into the photos. Plus the colors of these are really amazing. I wonder if it’s just gels on lights set up around the cave?
Atlanta based designer Mark Weaver released a pack of iPhone wallpapers the other day so I thought I’d share them with those of you who may not have seen them. Mark’s distinct style of retro imagery, bold colors and great type design really stand out in these beauties. My favorite two are the ones above, but there are 8 total designs to choose from.
Pogo, that fellow behind the amazing Alice in Wonderland music/video remix, released another new video yesterday, this one titled Bangarang. I think a lof of us have fond memories of the movie Hook. There was that food fight, Rufio, Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell… it was definitely one of Spielberg’s best. It definitely sounds like a lot of his other stuff, but his other works sound amazing, and watching them with the video is always such a treat. On a sidenote, this movie was made released in 1991 and Maggie Smith still looks like she’s 108, even though she was only 57.
The fires here North of Los Angeles are still raging, it’s starting to look a lot like Mount Doom, in fact. The other day Matt mentioned that it would be cool to see a time-lapse video of the smoke from the fires. As crazy scary and horrible as the fires are, watching the smoke can be pretty beautiful and amazing. The video is pretty surreal, I never really knew how smoke reacted on such a large scale.
