Moses Hacmon Photographs Water in Motion

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 27, 2015
Israeli artist Moses Hacmon has found a way to capture water in motion through an analog photographic technique using a fluid film made out of nanoparticles that retains a liquid layer of iron. This registers the water's movement first and then allows it to be imprinted on any surface in any shape. The resulting photographic negative is then transformed into a positive image. The process is the result of eleven years of studying and investigating the physical characteristics of the flow of water. Watch a video after the jump...

The Rescued Film Project, an online archive gallery of images that processes undeveloped film from all eras, recently came across one of their biggest finds yet: 31 rolls of film shot by an unkonw WWII soldier.

Taking artistic immersion to another level, photographer Sean Hawkey photographed Peruvian mine workers with glass plate negatives using the same silver nitrate used in the mining process. The wet collodion method of photographing that Hawkey used required incredibly heavy equipment including a large format camera and over 30 pounds of glass used for plates. 

Weston's Westons

Erotica // Thursday, January 22, 2015
We saw this series back in 2009 at Danziger Gallery in NYC, some stunning iconic and rare Edward Weston prints from the Cole Weston Trust. The balance of nudes and nature, the shadows of sand formations versus the model's bodies make for some striking pairs. From the gallery,"Focusing on Weston's obsession with sensuous form, the show gets to the heart of Weston's work and his passion. As Huntington Curator of Photographs Jennifer Watts has written: 'Weston never cropped his photographs. He's really about finding the form and honing in on it in a clear, concise, framed way'."

The Darkness: Photography by Bill Henson

Erotica // Tuesday, January 20, 2015
Australian photographer Bill Henson has long been a staple in the photography world, sometimes with controversty attached (see wikipedia). But this series is dark, mysterious, a little creepy, as you go in and out of the light and see subjects emerge and fall back into the darkness. Yes, Henson has an odd track record of picking models, but these photos are arresting to say the least.
