To continue my Copenhagen yet one step further, commenter Jeppe suggested I check out the video above as they parkour at a building in Copenhagen which I think is called VM Mountain. I watched the video and it’s pretty cool, as most parkour is, as is the building they’re running through. But then I checked it against Kim HÃ¸ltermand’s site, who I just posted about below, and it turns out he took photos of the building as well. So it’s kind of neat to be able to see the building with people moving around in it, as well as from an beautifull photographed angle as well.
After posting the previous post about Copenhagen I already received a ton of comments, you all are so good to me. But I had to single out one commenter in particular because he’s not only quite skilled, but helps exemplify the Copenhagen I would love to see. His name is Kim Høltermand and I’ve posted about him before, almost exactly 11 months ago to the day in fact.
Kim’s photos are absolutely stunning to me, showing the most beautiful angles and environments. They’re always quite moody, oftentimes run down, but he always portrays these scenes in a really creative and fresh way. So when I dream of Copenhagen, the images on his site are exactly what I’m thinking about. Awesome work Kim, and thanks for commenting!
I’m pretty sure that I spotted one of Will Govus’ photos on FFFFOUND! a couple weeks ago, the one you see up there, and since then I’ve had a tab of his Flickr photos still open. His work reminds a lot of Todd Hido’s, with lots of long exposures of houses and residential neighborhoods, but there’s a different sensibility to Will’s work.
I have a little photo boner for Jeurgen Teller, I’ve posted about him and his work several times on here. So getting to post about his upcoming exhibit at the De Hallen Haarlem is quite a joy. The exhibit is a partial continuation from his previous show MÃ¤rchenstÃ¼berl, and features a lot of beautiful but weird images. There’s Bjork with plates of black spaghetti looking like something out of a Japanese horror flick. Or there’s William Eggleston playing piano in a dark parking lot at night, which is just frigging beautiful.
Typohpile has a new Type Battle up, this one centered around creating a book cover, with the subject of the book chosen by the random Wikipedia article chooser. But that’s not all! You then have to search the keywords from your title through the LIFE magazines photo archive that Google put up, and use one of the images that come up using those parameters… does that make sense?
Anyhow, I thought I’d try it out and I ended up getting Horns of Ock Street, which was from an incident in the 1700′s where a bunch of crazy guys roasted an ox and then had a fight over the horns. The Ock Street guys beat the Vineyard Guys, so they got to keep the horns and put it over their bar, er something. So I found this sweet photo of horns and made it colorful. Ta da!
You can still enter, I’m not really sure when the battle ends, but if you do, leave a description and link to your entry in the comments, I’d love to see what everyone else does.
