My creative agency is looking to build a photo library of certain words printed out or otherwise manifested in the real world. So we're offering a cash bounty for photos of said words if they get posted on our FaceBook. I came up with the campaign, I hope it does well. I think it's a pretty cool way to crowd source this task. More details through the link. If it falls flat we'll probably send an intern around the city with a camera, but we're hoping this works. It would be much cooler. Let me know what you guys think!
My current pet project is Marlowe, a sculpted webcomic/picturebook. It follows the life of a well meaning, slightly misguided, slightly shy, rather blobby monster with six eyes and two tentacles. Topics covered include asexual reproduction, (monster) civil rights, depression and lesbian sex(all SFW). Updates Wednesdays.
I've put up a Flickr set with 36 photos that I've selected, and written a small paragraph or two under each photo explaining what's going on, or a lesson I learned, or just how that photo happened. I hope to expand it as time goes on, and I invite critique and questions.
This is a short video I made of this mantis I found yesterday. I like taking pictures of mantids and sometimes they pose beautifully.
Retired vaudeville novelty dancer George Mann took up 3-D photography later in life, and shot incredible color images of the soon-to-be-demolished Bunker Hill neighborhood in downtown L.A. They were displayed in 3-D viewers of his own design, then boxed away. Fifty years later, his family unpacked George's archives and decided to share these unseen images with the community of obsessives who cluster around my time travel blog OnBunkerHill. Today, we're thrilled to announce the launch of an online shop making these beautiful vintage photographs available as archival prints, the first in a series of George Mann's mid-century California photographic portfolios. Learn more about George's unusual life here.
FT Marinetti's 1932 'Futurist Cookbook' was one big practical joke filled with bizarre dinners composed of even more bizarre recipes. The photographer, prop stylist, and food stylist all set out to recreate the not just the dishes but also the feel of the cookbook and just how radical it was at the time. This is our 3rd shoot in a series exploring hunger through photography. Previously, previously.
On Oct. 10, my birthday, I will be running in the Portland (OR) Charity Half-Marathon, in affiliation with the American Cancer Society. I am selling photos I have taken in New Orleans, where I have lived for the past four years, in order to help raise at least $1,000 and hopefully reach my goal of $1,500 (and am also accepting direct donations). I will be officially running in memory of the late Emilie Lemmons of St. Paul MN, a dear friend of mine who died in Dec. 2008 after a long battle with sarcoma. She was 40 years old. [more inside]
I've been wanting to do a photo essay of drivers that sit too close to the steering wheel for over a decade. When I finally got around to rigging something up, the moments of serendipity were way too fun to limit the project to such a narrow theme. I give you Passenger Window. [more inside]
Breaking my years of MeFi silence (but I've been lurking all along!), here's a photocomic made up of conversations added to my own photographs. I'm making some efforts in my life to be less neurotic about certain things, and I'm in hopes that sharing these photos and dialogues with y'all will not only entertain a little, but also help me stop being such a hermit and maybe deal with some Stuff.

After 5 years of digital photography as a hobby, I realized I'd spent a lot of time buying and selling gear online. Hopefully this will be helpful to others who find themselves in the same predicament.
Essentially this comprises much of my final year work at Edinburgh College of Art, but will be ongoing from now on. It's also a taster for our college group show at Trumans Brewery, Brick Lane, London July 1st-5th (opening july 1st @6pm) [more inside]
London, Italy, Morocco, Romania, Turkey, Iran, SE Asia: Our journey isn't exactly linear, and traveling on one way tickets has meant our plans have already changed more times than I can count, but it's been pretty good so far. Plus we have some really good photos. [more inside]
I am a visual artist in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, and this is my photoblog. I have been posting fairly regularly over the past year (233 photos so far). I think of my photoblog as a photographic notebook, a tool I use to record and develop visual ideas over time. It is also a good excuse to wander around with a camera. [more inside]
55 pairs of shoes. One pair a day. Photography by me, feet by my girlfriend. [more inside]
Morels, daggered lettuce, fiddlehead ferns, rabbits, and tender, tender lamb. Part morality tale, this photoessay on foraging and seasonal food was shot over three days as part of the ongoing project 'The Voracity,' exploring hunger, consumption, and beauty. Previously. [more inside]
This has been a photographic project over the last 18 months that is still a work in progress. It is a response to the rapid development of the central areas of Shanghai. The project attempts to capture the vibrancy of a small 15 square block community behind some of the most expensive on-going redevelopments. The link is to a six minute slideshow containing 45 images focussing on the people living in the community. There are additional images in the WIP galleries taken from around Shanghai. I am continuing to work on full collection that will be placed in its own section in the next month or two.
I'm finally coming out of the closet and calling myself a photographer. This is my new portfolio site with a range of photographs in different categories including food, people and places. Please note that I can't be held responsible for any weird sensations you get from licking your screen.
A tumble log of stuff I find I like on Google Street View. There are some other things thrown in , but that's basically it. [more inside]
