Gregory Crewdson

I was thinking about Yo La Tengo’s album And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out over the weekend, and remembering how awesome the album artwork was. I decided to look it up and see who the guy was, and it turns out it was Gregory Crewdson. Crewdson is a New York photographer who takes these amazingly surreal, production-heavy photos that evoke this really surreal and almost creepy feeling to them. The way he lights is photos is crazy, almost like a movie would be set up.

Check under the cut for a video of him talking about his process as well as a behind the scenes of a shoot he did.

Youth in Japan

The Life Magazine Archive has been a consistent source of inspiration for since it was launched a few months back. What’s neat about it for me is that I can constantly run across new photos of something that I really think is cool.

My most recent find was photos from an article called Youth in Japan, which seems to document a day and night in the life of a group of scooter kids in 1964. The photos are so neat to see, and I love everything that they’re wearing. I’m also jealous of their bikes, I wish I had a sweet little scooter like that to run around LA on!

Check out some more photos under the cut.

Tate Millerton

I’m kind of in love with Tate Millerton‘s set of photos called Evolution is Convenient. The photos feature two different images, the bottom containing their upper chest, while the top is some kind of random object, probably something that describes them or their personality.

My favorites were the first two images, which feature red tape as a guide to where the person should stand. Plus the image on the left with the camera head looks amazing. The rest of the set is great as well, definitely check them out.

Neil Krug

Check out the beautifully trippy photos of Neil Krug.. Neil lives in Kansas, taking photos of naked ladies, hippy dudes and beautiful landscapes. He gets these really gorgeous effects to his photos by using expired polaroids, which make them let amazing.

Neil also recently did a mini-interview with Fecal Face, which you can read here.

Monika Bielskyte

Monika Bielskyte is a Lithuanian photographer now living in Paris who takes some really creepy photos. The photos above are from a series called COMINGGOINGSEATCHINGLEAVING and I love the really muted colors they had. The rest of her photos are pretty creepy, but there’s something very simple and beautiful about them.
