Todd Hido is one of my all time favorite photographers. in the entire universe. and thats big.
His new work is up at the Bruce Silverstein Gallery 535 West 24th street, NYC
certainly sticking to his dark and moody feel, these don't do as much for me as the houses series shot at night, but he still rules.... this group sort of feels like roadtrip shot from the car dashboard.
via Conscientious his review = a cold prickly. ouch.
David Burdeny, Canadian photographer started shooting at the age of 12 printing his own black & white prints in a make shift darkroom in his bedroom closet.
He uses unusually long exposures to see that which our eyes can not. Moving beyond the literal, his images have been described as ominous, haunting, beautiful and meditative.

unlike zipcar's mantra, bikes are wheels when you want them and for the best price ever, FREE!!! been riding my 10 speed a.k.a. "Lady Lavender" a lot and absolutely never change gears.... maybe laziness, maybe its that eerie sound it makes when i shift, or maybe i like a challenge.
Linus makes super cute bikes that are crazy affordable. Inspired by 50's & 60's french design. fenders are cute, but breaks are essential. i vote for the cream one on tops.

just learned how to make shapes, change opacity and to multiply in Illustrator. i mean, check the headers, i make em myself ! Chad Hagen's work just blows my little designs right out of the water. just love how simple it is with triangles and squares and the overlapping colors like a silkscreen..... this series is titled Nonsensical Infographics... as described:
"Infographics' level of success is always based on how much and how well they communicate their data—the classic form follows function. In this series, I reversed these roles—form is king and dictates what the infographic communicates. Welcome to the world of fictional visual information."
neat. via 20x200
Sophia Brueckner's paintings are so cute i want to eat them. she paints to fit her pieces inside little vintage frames. they remind me of swirly peacock feathers and a little bit of Dr Seuss.
