DundleDoo’s Hideout

DundleDoo is an artsy-fartsy, lowbrow kind of guy. He’s got a pretty great sense of humor, and is pretty great with a camera. On his blog… he’s got an interesting mixture of stuff, ranging from boats off the coast of Thailand to copulating elephants to high-jumping Japanese guys. Swing by and take a peek. He’s also got a small bio…

The Ballerina and the Nuclear Bomb

So I’ve been researching archival photos of nuclear bomb tests (it’s a long story). This has been going on for a few days, and I’ve been digging around the Internet trying to find both images and videos that are in the public domain. One of the resources I came across was the website of the US Department of Energy’s National…

Scaffoldage: Skeletal Archiporn

Scaffoldage does pretty much what it says on the tin: lots and lots of photos of scaffolding. It’s actually quite the mesmerizing site. There are tons of super-industrial examples, but a lot of scaffolds that seem to be made from bamboo and barely holding together. I’m kind of in awe at how large some of the scaffolding gets – it’s…

Police Shootout in Los Angeles, 1938

This amazing image was featured on Chasing Light, one of a few photography blogs I follow. It was taken in 1938, during a shootout between police and a man who had barricaded himself in his house. Apparently, two officers were at the scene earlier, trying to serve the man an eviction notice when he shot them both. I’m in awe…

12:31 – Executed Criminal’s Body, Re-Imagined In Photos

12:31 is a very interesting, very dark, and slightly disturbing project. Here’s the brief rundown: In 1993, a convicted murderer was executed. His body was given to science, segmented, and photographed for medical research. In 2011, we used photography to put it back together. The creators of the project were able to “re-create” the body by taking long-exposure photos during…

Photos Capturing an Old Tube TV Being Turned Off

Luminant Point Arrays is a small series of photos by Stephan Tillmans capturing the exact moment when an old tube-based television is turned off. I don’t know what it is about these photos, but I find them a little mesmerizing. When I look at them, I get these abstract feeling of mathematics and orderly decay. Lovely stuff, and I’m sad…

I work with some pretty amazing folks. In addition to the fine work they do in the office, most everyone else on the Design Team has their own side projects a-bubbling. Yesterday, both Brian and Justin S received some cool materials related to projects they’re each working on. In addition to being a great writer, Brian also takes some great…

Brian in Bogota

My friend Brian is currently several days into his journey to Bogota, and he’s been taking some pretty fantstic photographs along the way. As with most big travels to other countries, I assumed he would take a lot of pictures and sort through them on returning to the States. I’m extremely pleased to say that he’s documenting his experiences day…
