Gueorgui Pinkhassov's "Sidewalk"

Photography // Thursday, March 20, 2014
Gueorgui Pinkhassov is not a standard documentary photographer; he has a strange minimalistic aesthetic and explores the outside world with an introversion that makes the work abstract and slightly absurd. In his book “Sightwalk” he presents twenty-five candid images of Tokyo. The book is bound in a strange textural purple material, which makes me think of a prehistoric animal’s skin, it also utilizes artisan-made paper.

Photography // Wednesday, March 19, 2014
A few weeks ago we shared an entertaining video of Garry Winnogrand walking around Venice Beach as he takes photos and discuses his approach to photography.

The Photographic Worlds of Anne Hardy

Photography // Tuesday, March 18, 2014
For years, photographer Anne Hardy has been creating intricately detailed interiors that she constructs herself and then photographs. Her use of bold colors and unique object placement often make her images resemble a set from a Wes Anderson film or a scene from an episode of Twin Peaks.

Mishka Henner’s book “No Man’s Land” is a photographic project of roadside prostitutes in Italy and Spain. The book was produced entirely by searching on Google Street to find the images. A book like this shows the vast amount of information accessible today, one only has to research in order to produce a photographic book. 

Kahn & Selesnick's "Mars: Adrift On the Hourglass Sea" Series

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 18, 2014
We love a good conceptual photo series, and the Kahn & Selesnick's fantastically visionary Mars: Adrift On the Hourglass Sea photography series is one of our favorites we have seen in quite some time. Envisioning an expedition and civilization on Mars, the work focuses on societies in crisis and on the brink of major change, and although the work appears alien, the DYI and recycled nature of some of the materials in each photo makes everything appear familiar.
