So Astro Zombie and KokuRyu - in your humble opinions, what do you find great about the photography here?

Why does dried mud fracture as it does?

Yeah - Rate Limit Exceeded. You can view some through the Google cache. There are some extraordinary images there. Angels and old people with dirt on them. I like it. I'll come back later.

Angels and old people with dirt on them.

And here I thought Tube was trying to get in a nonsequitor before the thread was closed.

We all dive off of an old board into a smudgy oblivion every single day, but most of us don't know that yet.

Nice. Reminds me of Connie Imboden. (Check out second page of "Water Images" portfolio, "untitled 6256.26", fourth from right.)

The surrealism and that aged look reminds me of Robert and Shana Parke-Harrison's Architect's Brother series.

Your favorite photographer wants to pay homage to Joel-Peter Witkin.

(no link 'cause J-P W. creeps the shit out of me - you should see the pictures 'live' too, in a book or on a wall - the size of them and the technical proficiency makes 'em all the creepier. These look to be similarly technically proficient, I'd be interested to see them in TRW, as they say.)


Totally odd in a much smarter way than most, thanks.

Very nice! Love this. (if the page won't load directly, it's "il bambino e il suo bosco 4" from the ανα χρονοϛ series)

If you are seeing a Rate Limit Exceeded notice on the first link, try going through the main site (second link in the post) and navigating to ανα χρονοϛ. Worked for me.

I'm not a photographer, have no clue about composition or lighting or even what any of this stuff means ...

Maybe it's the fact I'm coming off a night shift, but I've never straight up Laughed out Loud at photographs like these before.

Stunning.

I just wrote "I don't know if it's art, but I like it" which means I have finally turned into my dad. ARSE!

Laughed? The evil videotape from "The Ring" was what I was seeing. Beautiful images so bizarre and disjointed as to unsettle the mind, or unsettle my mind at least.

That "Rate Limit Exceeded" could save your life. Me, I've only got seven days...

These pictures are blowing my mind. I only wish I could see the Rate Limit Exceeded pictures that everyone else keeps talking about.

"Why does dried mud fracture as it does?"

I believe it is because dried mud is smaller than wet mud.

I'm going to make a photo essay called Rate Limit Exceeded comprising photographs of people sitting in front of their computers, frustrated and despairing.

And it will be the subject of a front page post on Metafilter. When you all click on it in your glee, you will all get the error "Rate Limit Exceeded". And your webcams take a picture of you right then, and add it to my photo essay.

You are nothing to me but art.

This is what a lot of Blood Meridian looked like in my head.

Is this one of those posts where NSFW means "might contain a nipple, artistically photographed"?
posted by Catblack at 1:43 PM on March 11, 2009


Yes, particularly in the other galleries.
