Large Selfie Stick

There are selfie sticks and then Jesse Chehak's custom LFSS (Large Format Selfie Stick), which is essentially a 4x5 Graflex press camera attached to the end of a thick 8-foot-long pole. You use a shutter release cord to expose a sheet of Polaroid Type 55 film. Now if you happen to have on of these press cameras, each package of Type 55 film will run you at least $275 since it was discontinued in 2008, and no other manufacturers have stepped up to continue production.

Hyper-Realistic Liquid Oil Paintings By Sarah Harvey

1

Sarah Harvey‘s paintings tap into a deep connection that we have with water. Through an almost hyper-realist approach she captures the water’s hypnotic fluidity, along with the suggestion of unexplored depths that might lie beneath its surface. This sense of a mysterious element in constant flux is the perfect place for memories and emotions to be let loose, where they can become encrypted in colour and light. Sarah’s paintings are all about this process: about our emotional affinity with the unknown.

Sarah appears in most of her paintings. In her recent works, however, she has increasingly focused on the abstracting nature of water, where the figure dissolves and disappears, or blurs into indistinctness. In these paintings figures are only suggestions, and fleeting ones at that; rather than being portraits, they serve more as imaginative prompts to lure any viewer into the pool. They could, in essence, be anyone.

The play between definition and ambiguity is carried through on many layers in Sarah’s work, right down to the painted objects themselves. They are faithful renderings of her source materials – arrangements of photographs that capture the water in motion – but there is big difference between the two. While photography may document the liquid, it is only through Sarah’s distinctive handling of paint, light and colour that the paintings gain their lustre and glow. This personal touch is what triggers the sense of escape.

See How This Woman Tranformed Herseld Into 15 Iconic Women

1-Frida-Kahlo__880

After her visa didn’t come in time, Yolandi Jacobsz was looking for a different method of spending now-free time. Instead of whining, she took up the camera she had been given by Fujifilm to document her vacation, and used it to shoot 15 portraits of herself donning the clothes and mannerisms of 15 women who had been inspirations at some point throughout her life.

Everyday Objects In Color Gradients By Emily Blincoe

colorful-every-day-items-food-arrangements-emily-blincoe-15

While there’s a meaning in “creative chaos”, there’s fun in purposeful arrangements, too! And that’s how Emily Blincoe rolls. She loves arrangement things in square shapes, united in theme or color and taking beautiful photographs. They tickle the organized bone in all of us. Autumn leaves, lollipops, colorful cereal, burnt matches – nothing is off-limits.

“I consider myself to be visually sentimental,” Blincoe said. “Photography, for me, is remembering someone or something as it was on a particular day, forever. Of course, I do enjoy giving that moment a little art-direction, and I can’t promise that person won’t be up to their neck in a bush.”

Emily Blincoe comes from Austin, Texas. While her brother had tried to teach her photography, her real love for the subject blossomed when she got her first digital point-and-shoot. Satisfied with the instant gratification of digital photography, she finally felt ready for a DSLR camera in 2009.

Idiot Box: Eye-Opening Portraits Of Kids With Eyes Bounded To A TV

Idiotbox_Cassidy

The average US child watches more TV than recommended. This question is the focus of a new photo series by photographer Donna Stevens titled Idiot Box. It’s a series of portraits showing vacant expressions on kids faces as they watch television in a dark room.

“TV is just one of the ever-present Black Mirrors through which we negotiate our lives today,” the Australian photographer tells PetaPixel. “Idiot Box hopes to explore the darker side of our love for technology.”

“Should we exhibit more caution about the role of technology in our children’s lives? Is our techno-paranoia warranted? No matter what gadgetry we may possess and blame for our undoing, do our problems still just remain human?”
