Daniel Blackman

Dan Blackman’s portfolio is filled with really amazing work, but I was particularly drawn to his ongoing rebrand of the Pointer Brand of clothing. I love pointers, but I really like his blend of sans serif and serif fonts, with a sprinkling of script here and there. It’s immediately Americana, which make perfect sense because [...]

Sean Fennessy

Some very American photography by Australian Sean Fennessy. By American, of course, I’m complimenting him — his body of work can easily be compared to the likes of Robert Frank, Robert Adams or other early photographers of the American West. It’s just stuff I’m easily attracted to, because it’s so damn good. See more at [...]

Jack Trench Cabinet Makers

One day when I’m rich and famous, or just rich, I’ll be able to hire bespoke cabinet makers like Jack Trench Ltd to visit my home and make magic out of the sad section of my home I call a kitchen. We all know that we are only as creative as our surroundings, which is [...]

Frieze Art Fair Campaign

The thought of fireworks during the daytime never really occurred to me, which is why I really appreciate this campaign for the Frieze Art Fair, in London. Produced by London-based design firm Graphic Thought Facility, the combination of CMYK-like streaks of color combine and clash with the natural white clouds, creating a minimalist abstract painting. [...]

View from the ISS at Night

Stop any of the best movies ever made at any moment, and chances are you will have a perfectly composed photograph. And that’s what intrigues me about this video – each frame is a photograph taken from the International Space Station. I’m not sure that each still is spectacular — there are probably limitations to [...]

Tom Hull

Tom Hull organizes is photography portfolio online in Commissions, Projects, and Series. They each contain excellent work, ranging from perfectly-lit editorial pieces, to voyeuristic snapshots, but it’s the Series category that piques my interest the most. The examples above are from Series Three, and offer a good example of the modern American West. Hull seems [...]

Christopher Payne

Is there a book on the number of photographers schooled in architecture? I’m no anthropologist, just something you notice perusing design and photography portfolios as much as I do. Anyway, Christopher Payne is among the most talented of architect-turned-documentary-photographers I’ve seen. My favorite work of his can be seen in the “Textiles” category, where Mr. [...]

Fivethousand Fingers

If you have a second today, head on over to the online portfolio of Fivethousand Fingers, a design duo from Vancouver, Canada. The first project that I noticed was, well, the first project – Dodge and Burn. According to the website, Dodge and Burn is “is an online boutique selling products based on the fetishized [...]

Simon Harsnet

The title of Simon Harnet’s project, Melt: Portrait of an Iceberg, can be a little misleading. While it is certainly a descriptive title, it might also project global warming as the primary cause. Icebergs are certainly the first thing we think of whenever global warming is the topic, however, it is impossible to know if [...]

Silver & Light

At $500 per photo, you might stop to think about what your next shot is going to be, maybe spend a little more time on composition, and perhaps be a little more meticulous with your development process. And that’s exactly what Ian Ruhter has to do with his bus-sized camera, who makes direct black and [...]
