Bus Stops in Krumbach, Austria

Design // Monday, May 19, 2014
Bus stops are rather mundane, and turning them into public art projects is something cities have done for years to make them more appealing. Mostly, they just become advertisement centers for upcoming summer blockbusters. In Krumbach, Austia, a selection of renowned international architects turned 7 bus stops into mini-design projects. Some bizarre, some functional, some just a nice place to sit and look at a field.

Photography // Monday, May 19, 2014
Taken in the streets, clubs, basements and bars of London between 1978 and 1987, photographer Derek Ridgers’s newest book is a stunning glimpse into the stylish British youth movements from this time. People dressing up and going out have always been central to Derek’s work from the first days of punk through to the fetish and fringe scenes of present day. 

The Victorian Revolutionary of Photographic Portraiture

Photography // Monday, May 19, 2014
In 1863 at the age of 48, Julia Margaret Cameron received her first camera and immediately formed a passion for it, soon joining the photographic societies of London and Scotland. She primarily chose to photograph portraits and utilized the motion blur of longer exposures and carefully guided light to create her highly stylized images. Many of her photographs referenced religious iconography with many photographic representations of angels and the Virgin Mary, as well as visual references to mythology and Renaissance painting.

Hyperphotos by Jean-François Rauzier

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 19, 2014
Paris-based photographer Jean-François Rauzier's images are approximately 10,000 times the resolution of a normal photograph. The image remains extremely crisp even when blown up to 66 feet wide (two school buses). Rauzier began his career as a fashion photographer but had always longed to break out of the constraints of the industry. Realizing he could use digital photography to compose a grid of pictures, the artist went on to create these incredibly detailed panoramas.

Photographs by Rene Burri

Photography // Monday, May 19, 2014
Rene Burri, a Duke of mid-century photography, has had some eclectic images of the last century. Originally Swiss, his career mostly grew during the mid 50’s for Magnum Photos, traveling the world and he has captured many great historical figures portraits, including Winston Churchill and Pablo Picasso. Mostly known for catching the ephemeral parts of life at the right time, his images seem to create emotions of curiosity that are familiar and nostalgic, lasting beyond just the view of a photo.
