“Earth’s Wonders Like You’ve Never Seen Them Before”: These Angled Satellite Images Are Like Aerial Photos From 280 Miles Up

Satellite photos are generally shot straight down at the Earth and make the world look like flat, detailed maps. But shoot satellite photos at an angle, and suddenly they look like aerial photos captured from impossible heights with the world’s longest telephoto lens.

“It’s like getting a view out the window of an airplane 450 kilometers [~280 miles] high,” writes Robert Simmon, an engineer at Planet, operator of the world’s largest commercial satellite network.

Planet recently used its constellation of 13 SkySat satellites to shoot “a series of experimental, off-angle images that capture some of the world’s most stunning vertical features.” It’s a perspective that makes the real cities look like the computer game Sim City, Engadget writes.

Vivian Maier: Lost Photographs Of 1950s New York

Found after her death, Vivian Maier’s photographs capture New York City in motion.

Two years before Vivian Maier died in 2009 at age 83, 30,000 of her negatives were bought at a Chicago thrift auction by former estate agent John Maloof. He was writing a book on Chicago history. Maier had been unable to pay the rental on a storage locker. So 100,000 of her unseen negatives housed in hundreds of boxes and undeveloped films were sold.

“I was wondering how I would find enough old photos to illustrate the book and tried my luck at a local junk and furniture auction house,” says Maloof, who waited two years to investigate his purchase. “However, I knew to keep them. I thought: ‘I’m resourceful. I’ll look at them later when I have more time. Fast forward two years later, that purchase had unearthed some of the finest street photography of the 20th century.”

Realising the cultural treasure trove he had discovered, Maloof tracked down the storage unit rented in Maier’s name. Before long he owned the former nanny’s sensational archive of New York and Chicago street photography from the 1950s.

A documentary on Vivian Maier by John Maloof and Charlie Siskel, Finding Vivian Maier, was nominated for an Oscar in 2015 and has won numerous other awards.

“Raindrop Blues”: The Art Of Superimposition Photography By Alessio Trerotoli

“The rain washes memories off the sidewalk of life”, Woody Allen said in a old movie. Raindrops, like in a blues song, fall with a repetitive but fascinating rhythm, awakening, as they were called in XVII century, the “blue demons”: a suffused sensation of melancholia. Raindrop Blues Project tries to dip the viewer in a sort of oneiric reality, where the rain seems to fall on everyone, creating evocative images where every element – the street, the sky, the characters, the viewer – is involved in a romantic and, in the same time, melancholic feeling. As Bob Marley said, when it rains some “feel” the rain, others just get wet…

Born in Rome, Italian photographer Alessio Trerotoli graduated in 2009 in Disciplines of Arts and Cinema.

Through his photographs, Alessio Trerotoli tries to catch the real soul of a street or a building, with something that belongs to its history and in the same time to its daily life. The inspiration behind his work come from the daily life in modern cities and the search for beauty in the alienated modern urban landscapes. He sees his art as being “a puzzle, an enigma to solve. The right combination exists, but we have to find it.

Bizarre Hospital Images From A Very Strange Cache Of Japanese Stock Photos

There’s a website called Sukima Nurse that offers pictures of a Japanese nurse holding unusual objects in a hospital and similar locales. The pictures fall generally into the stock photo category, although with a very, very narrow focus.

It’s difficult to imagine anyone having any reason to use a picture of a Japanese nurse blowing through a conch shell, but that is the very thing that makes the pictures so hilarious.
