A year of self portraits and other art by Brendon Burton

Brendon Burton is now an 18-year-old photographer, who started taking/making a self portrait (almost) each day last April. In the beginning, they started out as simple photos from a young kid in high school. But as the year progressed, some images came with a soundtrack, others were collaborations. The photos became more staged and more cinematic. The series ended April 11th. [more inside]

Women of the Algerian War Unveiled

In 1960, the French military required identification photographs of the people of remote mountain villages. The women were forced to unveil. “I would come within three feet of them,” Garanger remembers. “They would be unveiled. In a period of ten days, I made two thousand portraits, two hundred a day. The women had no choice in the matter. Their only way of protesting was through their look.” [more inside]

"Oh my God, it's orcas attacking sperm whales."

On April 18, a half-dozen orcas battled a pod of sperm whales off the southern coast of Sri Lanka. The unusual encounter is one of fewer than a dozen such recorded conflicts — and the first observed. “We saw the water churning on the horizon,” said Heinrichs, a photographer and filmmaker who was in the area looking for blue whales. He and his colleagues steered their boat toward the patch of white water. As they got closer, they saw an enormous dorsal fin slicing through the water — a killer whale trademark — and then noticed the group of sperm whales, clustered together in a defensive stance. At that point, Heinrichs did what many of us would not do: He jumped in.

Photographer Takes boy with Muscular Dystrophy on an Imaginary Adventure

Photographer Matej Pelhjan collaborates with 12 year old Luka to create pictures of Luka enjoying activities that his Muscular Dystrophy make impossible in real life. "Slovenia-based photographer Matej Peljhan recently teamed up with a 12-year-named Luka who suffers from muscular dystrophy, to create a wildly imaginative series of photos depicting the boy doing things he is simply unable to do because of his degenerative condition. While he can still use his fingers to drive a wheelchair and to draw, things like skateboarding and swimming are simply not possible." [more inside]

We are all individuals

Siphonophores are colonial organisms—they are composed of zoöids, specialised individuals that live together collectively, each performing a function that is essential to the other members of the colony. One well-known example is the Portuguese man o' war, which is actually composed of four separate types of zoöids despite resembling the individual organism otherwise known as the jellyfish. Turns out they are also remarkably beautiful. [more inside]

"Ring it Out"

And now, we finally have an answer to the age-old question, What Happens When You Wring Out A Washcloth In Space? [more inside]

"...the memory of a blue door with a small wired glass..."

"Two years ago, I wrote a post about Rockland County Psychiatric Center, an abandoned insane asylum complex that is easily one of the most haunting places I’ve ever scouted. To my amazement, more than 250 comments have since been left by former patients, doctors and nurses, and residents ... I wanted to share a selection of these with you, to allow those who knew Rockland Psych firsthand to tell its story." (Scouting NY, previously)

Woman Photographs Herself Receiving Strange Looks in Public

Memphis-based photographer Haley Morris-Cafiero has long been aware of strangers making fun of her behind her back due to her size. So aware, in fact, that she has turned the whole concept into a full-blown photography project. Titled Wait Watchers, the series consists of Morris-Cafiero’s self-portraits in public in which strangers can be seen in the background giving her strange looks and/or laughing. More photos at her website.

"Urgent… Have possibility of taking photos… Send film" -Auschwitz 1944

Is looking at photographs like those of the bloody birth of Bangladesh (possibly NSFW? one photo is of corpses) "an ethically and politically necessary act that connects us to our modern history of violence?" In The Cruel Radiance: Photography and Political Violence, Susie Linfield challenges the idea that photographs of political violence exploit their subjects and pander to voyeuristic tendencies. An excerpt.

where the wild things are

Wilder Mann - photos of traditional animal costumes of Europe, by Charles Freger. Also in National Geographic, and in the New York Times' Lens Blog:
“These traditions come from Neolithic times — from shamanism — and they have never stopped,” said Mr. Fréger, 38. “For a few nights you can behave like a goat, drink a lot and forget about being civilized. You can be a wild animal for three days and then you go back to controlling your wildness.”
