William Miller's Damaged Polaroids


Photojournalist William Miller bought an old Polaroid SX-70 instant camera at a local yard sale. After a few snaps he realised that the camera was malfunctioning, but instead of tossing it in the nearest river he began to take an interest in the way the camera turned normal shapes and colours and spewed them out into a series of abstract, sprawling landscapes. Below are some of the beautiful images from his Ruined Polaroids series.

Cornelia Konrads


German artist Cornelia Konrads creates gravity-defying site-specific installations in public spaces and gardens around the world. Stacked objects like logs, fences, and doorways appear to be suspended in mid-air, giving the beautiful illusion of weightlessness amongst nature.

Richard Mosse's "Infra" series


Richard Mosse's "Infra" series is as stunning as it is unique. Somebody please order me the book!

"For centuries, the Congo has compelled and defied the Western imagination. Richard Mosse brings to this subject the use of a discontinued military surveillance technology, a type of color infrared film called Kodak Aerochrome. Originally developed for camouflage detection, this aerial reconnaissance film registers an invisible spectrum of infrared light, rendering the green landscape in vivid hues of lavender, crimson, and hot pink."

Nancy Fouts


I love these surreal sculptures by Nancy Fouts. If Rene Magritte had photoshop back in his day, he would've made a few sculptures like these.

Abandoned Hoops


My blog readers know that I love art and photography, but if any of you follow me on twitter, you've probably picked up that I'm also very obsessed with basketball. Austin-based photographer Casey Dunn's series, Hoop Dreams, feeds right into these two loves of mine, as he visits the sites of abandoned hoops and rims on a journey across the American landscape. Dunn writes:

"When I was eight years old my dad came home with a fiber glass basketball goal and put it up in our backyard. After a couple of hours of grunting and swearing he tossed me a ball and said “shoot with your wrist” and walked inside. I spent hundreds of hours out there over the next ten years avoiding family functions and shooting hoops on that rim. As I started to travel a bit more, I started to notice more and more back yard goals that had fallen into disrepair the same way my childhood rim had. I loved the idea that some other kid had spent countless hours dreaming while shooting baskets the same way I did. This series is a collection of their basketball goals."
