Laurent Nivalle has got some great shots of the Le Mans Classic races.
I discovered these a while back and if, like Dunc and I, you are a bit of a race fan, then you’ll love these shots of the Le Mans Classic races by Laurent Nivalle.| Tags: laurent nivalle, le mans, motorsport, photography, racing
Photo journalist Alec Dudson has been trekking over America documenting his trip on his trusty SLR.
His insistence on using ‘old fashioned’ film rather than any of that modern digital malarky, makes the taking of the photo all the more important. Waiting for the perfect moment, rather than snapping hundreds which have to be whittled down on a computer later, results in photos with soul rather than digital files edited in Photoshop. His recent interview on the Dazed Digital blog gives a great insight into the thought process behind choosing this moment.| Tags: America, americans, beauty, documentary, film, journalism, LA, landscape, liverpool, Los Angeles, manchester, moment, New Orleans, new york, NewYork, north-west, NYC, passion, People, Philadelphia, photo, photograph, photography, portrait, soul, visual, WashingtonDC
It’s a crazy mixed-up world within the 9 mile walls of Worthy Farm, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
So I survived my maiden voyage to Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts 2011 and I must say that I’m still completely blown away by the experience. Yes, there was rain, and yes, that did mean rivers of mud and mountains of poo flowing from the Portaloos, but if anything, these things only made the experience richer. It brings a certain camaraderie to the crowd. A unity that sweeps across all areas of the festival and raises spirits even further.
I’ll post more later about the cool, amazing and downright twisted parts of Glastonbury, such as the fire-breathing, lightning-spewing Spider in Arcadia, and the pre-apocalyptic dystopian wonderland of Shangri-La. For now though please enjoy this picture that I took of a cool looking bloke on Pennard Hill enjoying the sunset over Pulp’s gig on the Park Stage. I don’t know who the guy is but I did like his hat!| Tags: glastonbury, pennard hill, sunset, worthy farm
I’ve been a great admirer of Keith Loutit’s work for a while now and think you should all take a look at his videos if you’ve never heard of him before. Using a load of photographic trickery including tilt-shift and stop-motion animation, Keith manages to turn the everyday world into a captivating miniature version of itself. Mainly based around Sydney, Australia, Keith’s playful ‘Toy Town’ creations are really charming and nice. My personal favourite is Bathtub IV, filmed with the help of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service (which depends entirely on the generosity and support of sponsors and the community to stay flying. Donations can be made at lifesaver.org.au/funding_challenge/donate.html)
Another great thing about Keith’s films are the music. Bathtub IV is set to ‘Clementine’ by Megan Washington which perfectly fits the mood of the video.
What are you waiting for? Go take a look…
