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.

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?
Check out more photos of the exhibit by visiting the Alison Jacques Gallery website and Tiny Vices.
I’m obviously a sucker for a certain kind of photography. I like a bit of mystery, a bit of age, and like my eyes to be able to wander the photo, looking for interesting details. I find all of these things in the photos of Aimee Brodeur, a Brooks Institute of Photography grad who has a really nice eye for landscapes. The photos above all have a similar texture to me, there’s a ton going on and I would love to see all of these blown up to a huge size.
I came across the photos of Johnny Lucus rather randomly on Behance tonight. He’s a photographer living in Monroe, Washington and takes some really creative photos, the likes I really haven’t seen before. I picked my favorite shots which you see above. Two of them came from his Scales series, the other two from his Cinema series. I think they go together rather well, and you can definitely get a sense for the mood that Johnny creates with his photos. Really stupendous work.
At the moment I’m listening to Sigur Rós and looking through the photos of Amsterdam based photographer, Misha de Ridder. The two go together rather well as Misha’s photos are beautifully quiet and eerie. As far as I can see he only shoots landscapes, but he’s has a great eye for it, catching wonderful instances of color and light. I’d suggest putting on Með Suð í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust and having a browse for yourself.
