A nostalgic collection of New York playgrounds that have disappeared. From Jacob Riis and all the way to Central Park, here’s is just a small glimpse back into how carefree the 1960’s were for a child’s playplace.

Nicola Odemann has put together another amazing 35mm film set from her recent trip to Iceland. I first found Nicola’s work through her Cargo Collective site about a few years ago, but just now realized she’s also picked-up an Instagram account. Always loved her use of 35mm film, and I love the story about the camera coming from her father. Definitely follow her, as I suspect much more amazing beauty and inspiration from Nicola in the future @wildsommer
Want more? Here’s some interviews with Nicola and collections of her outstanding work:

Just in time to remind you there’s no snow in Tahoe this year, it’s Capa in Color. Above are some selections from Robert Capa’s postwar photography of Europena alpine resorts.

This is like the archetype for every retro-styled with the synth-soundtracked logo build in and the crackly PBS voice over. Can’t believe this was made in 1980, would have guessed earlier from the quality.
Oil painter Danny Heller is back and has created a new, breathtaking series titled “City Modernism”. I’ve been following Danny for almost seven years now and as he keeps tacking on the years of experience, one can see the subtle growth and maturity in his works. I cannot praise Danny’s work enough. I never really understood what people meant when they talked about finding art that hits your soul in a way that you must own it until I saw Danny’s work for the first time. His work is really something to see in person. Speaking of which…
Danny will be presenting his new works at the George Billis gallery here in Los Angeles this weekend. If you live in the Los Angeles area, drop by the opening reception and check his work out, meet Danny and I’ll be there as well on Saturday. Details for Danny’s “City Modernism” are listed below:
Opening Reception: Saturday October 19, 5-8 pm
October 19 – November 26

Stumbled upon these cool posters by Ahmed Youness. They aren’t actually 80’s vintage but they do look the part.
Great covers from Macdonald Educational series of books for teachers.
These graphics appear to have been from a science-fiction magazine or album art, though I’m not sure exactly. The detail is amazing. Check out many more on Flickr.
