10,000 digital paintings




This brightened my morning when it appeared in my timeline from @MatDolphin.

F'ELD have created 10,000 unique digital paintings for paper manufacturer GFSmith. The bright colours show off the digital sculpture and the printing capabilities of the HP Indigo 7500 digital press at Pureprint in Sussex. Just shows what can be done when you get good things together in one place.

The first destruction of Lower Manhattan


In 1967, over 60 acres of Lower Manhattan was demolished in an effort to regenerate the area and make way for, among other things, the World Trade Centre complex. American photojournalist, and recent winner of the Missouri Honor Medal, Danny Lyon went into the buildings to document their destruction from the inside with his series The Destruction of Lower Manhattan.

Danny Lyon says: "The story here is not about people. It's about buildings. And these buildings were old and it was quite upsetting for me. I like architecture. New Yorker's were destroying their own city."

Check out the rest of my article on Phaidon.com this week, there's even a gallery too.

Life in a bubble


This is one of those photographs which proves that even before the wonders of digital imaging photographers were just as creative, if not more, because they had to find ways to shoot their imagination in real life.

Nowness has a nice little Q&A with Melvin Sokolsky the photographer behind this image /via @WayneFord.

Instagram and the seaside


There's something about the seaside that just asks for photographs to be treated with Instagram. The subject and the medium just work so well together, they bring up our nostalgia for the 'good old days' of buckets & spades, the amusement arcades, 35mm and the warm tones of kodak.

Chemical Brothers light up Glastonbury

So you're the BBC producer for Glastonbury, what do you do when the band's lighting engineer decides to wash the stage with red and green light (two of the least camera ready colours) for their whole set?
