Photographer Rob Whitworth:

Ever since I first set foot in HCMC I have been captivated by the 
cities energy. Saigon is a city on the move unlike anything I have 
experienced before which I wanted to capture and share.

The Litter Box highly recommends full screen viewing here.

In case Terje Sorgjerd is growing a bit too March, 2011 for you hipsters out there, and for everyone else who can’t get enough of great time-lapse photography highlighting the eternal earth…

Daniel Lopez showcases the cascading Milky Way over desert landscapes, the foaming clouds lapping like ocean shores at the feet of mountains, and more astounding sites from one of the most beautiful places on this pale blue dot, the Canary Islands.


Killer Juxtaposition

Aspiring photographers, take note of Rob Kalmbach. His site is inspiring, but beware… it is also humbling.


Breathtaking Aurora Borealis

Even though the Northern Lights are a common earthly phenomenon, when viewed through time-lapse high definition, and set to “Now We Are Free” from the Gladiator soundtrack, the effect is decidedly otherworldly. The profoundly beautiful and smooth video was shot near Russia by Terje Sorgjerd.

Yes, full screen for ultimate winnage.


Hot Shot Eastbound

Photo: O Winston Link

From Iconic Images:

Although his photos exuded spontaneity, they were often the result of elaborate preparations and darkroom manipulations. “Hot Shot East Bound” was photographed on August 2, 1956, in Iaeger, West Virginia, in an effort to depict small-town American life at the end of an era. As the steam engine symbolically exits the frame, a young couple in Link’s own 1952 Buick convertible takes center stage, both literally and metaphorically. Later, in his darkroom, Link added the U.S. Air Force Sabre airplane on the movie screen to extend this metaphoric power. The photo was a poignant display of a cultural lifestyle in speedy transition. The 50s marked the beginning of excess, decadence, and conspicuous consumption. For Link, no landscape embodied this as effectively as the drive-in theater, a cultural space first created in 1928 by Richard Hollingshead in response to the United State’s burgeoning car culture.

This is the most mesmerizing, unexpectedly educational video I saw today. Shamans and tattoos and Cultural Relativism, oh my!

Arrangement

"Untitled" (Holding Patterns)

Nathan Harger’s photographs could be mundane and meaningless.  When they are arranged and presented the way he does, however, they take on a Gestalt-like depth and purpose.  Consider me a fan.

Series One.

Series Two.
