“Levitation?” Photo Series

In the “Levitation?” photo series, Maryland-based photographer Bairon Rivera explores what might happen if earth’s gravity let loose. His conceptual photography renders outdoor scenes in bright colors to match the surreal situation. People and objects seemingly jump, pedal, or drift into the air and don’t come down. There’s a natural look to their posture and gestures that makes their suspension all the more uncanny.

FotoFest 2014 International Biennial

Photographers Wendy Watriss and Fred Baldwin founded FotoFest after visiting Les Rencontres d’Arles in France. Inspired by the wide-ranging exhibitions, they sought to create a similar experience and dialogue in the United States. They launched FotoFest as a creative and socially engaged platform to foster cross-cultural connections in what they had previously found to be a rather nationally-focused arts scene. This year, the festival celebrated its 15th anniversary of cultivating ...

GBlog Meets Jasper Morrison in Times Square

GBlog got the chance to speak with Jasper Morrison before the launch party celebrating his latest book and his most recent designs for Swiss furniture company Vitra. The event took place inside the rooftop bar of the newly opened citizenM Hotel at Times Square, an artistic venue in itself. The book, The Good Life: Perceptions of the Ordinary, could be found stacked beside the hotel’s baubles and paperback novels. Drawing ...

Traveling Cars Adventures by Kim Leuenberger

London-based photographer Kim Leuenberger created “Traveling Cars Adventures” with miniature cars and vespas and forced perspective. Placing the figurines in any number of weathered terrains, from sand to snow to rainy city streets, Leuenberger makes it seem as though the charming models are exploring the world. A great decor idea for a children’s room, the bright series is sure to inspire little people. The colorful images are fuel for a ...

Moon Games by Laurent Lavender

A playful photo collection by French photographer Laurent Lavender, Moon Games makes it seem as though people are directly interacting with the moon. The series juxtaposes human subjects and ordinary objects alongside the moon in various phases. Captured on film beside anything from a ladder to a lampstand, earth’s biggest satellite seems just a reach away.

Lytro, the Silicon Valley startup and first line of professional-quality, general-market light field cameras, recently unveiled their second product, the Lytro Illum. A new camera and software platform, the Illum captures multidimensional,  “living pictures” by seamlessly combining digital photography with interactive computer graphics manipulation. Illum pictures can be adjusted for focus, tilt, perspective, and depth of field at any time after the shots are taken, allowing photographers and viewers alike ...

A Personal Look at the Smile! Photo Exhibit

I recently visited SMILE! A Photo Anthology by VII on behalf of GBlog. After traveling through a couple of under-construction corridors, I found the exhibit underneath Winter Garden’s palm trees. There, VII’s display contended that the smile is considered a low-brow taboo in the world of art photography, and that, through collecting photojournalistic shots, they hope to challenge this view. SMILE! represents people from around the world and of various ...

What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets

Photojournalist Peter Menzel and writer-editor Faith D’Aluisio are a husband and wife team based in Napa, California. Together, they have published several books, including Hungry Planet, Material World: A Global Family Portrait, and, most recently, What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets. For What I Eat, they travelled to more than thirty countries over a span of three years, documenting the diversity of eating habits across nations, classes, ...

“Case Sospese”
 / “Suspended Homes” Photoset

“Case Sospese,”
 or “Suspended Homes,” is a visual exploration of landscape and architecture by documentary photographer Ettore Moni. Capturing scenes along the river Po, the Parma-born photographer delved into architectural and anthropological ideas of how people transform the banks of Italy and how their lives are in turn shaped by nature. Moni’s pictures take in the greater landscape while centralizing unusual houses on stilts, boats, and barges: the man-made forms ...

Justin Poulsen Still Life: At Play

Justin Poulsen, 24, is a recent graduate of the Alberta College of Art and Design whose beginnings in photography came about through filming skateboarding videos in his youth. Poulsen specializes in still life photography, but also dabbles in architecture. “The two tend to complement one another.” In the about section of his Facebook page one will find the terse summary, “I shoot dead things,” perhaps an ironic play-on-words as his ...
