Salt is an ongoing new project from David Burdeny, a Canadian photographer hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Reminds me a lot of Edward Burtynsky’s Australian Mine project (link). Aerial photography exploring human environmental impacts is disturbing, yet never ceases to awe and amaze me.
More of Burdney’s work can be seen on his website, as well as in person at various gallies around the world (see ‘representatives’ page).

Rural China must be an absolutely amazing place to visit and photograph. A sentiment Thierry Bornier must have said to himself before leaving his job as a Chief Financial Officer at an international fashion company in New York and traveling to China to start a new life.
…deep down I knew that number crunching could never satisfy my thirst for natural beauty and my love for photography.
And so, I gathered my courage and decided to see what my life would become if I did something I truly loved. I’ve never looked back.
Theirry, a French photographer specializing in capturing the landscapes of China, has been documenting the cascades of rice terraces in Yuanyang every year since permanently moving to China.
The winter temperatures here, although never freezing, are such that the terraces can only support one rice crop a year. After the harvest, from mid-September until mid-November depending on the elevation, the terraces are filled with water until April, when the planting begins.
From elevations as high as 6,500 feet, the terraces undulate down into the valleys, forming intricate patterns that mirror the clouds and the sky. The fusion of man and nature creates awe-inspiring beauty, and I love the patterns and the diversity of colours that can be found at each site.
You can see more of Theirry’s work on his website: thierrybornier.net where he offers week long photography workshops in rural China beginning in February of next year.

I first bumped into a bubbly CHVRCHES at Firefly Festival in 2013 on a shoot with SPIN Magazine. After this random encounter came countless live shoots and I even had the opportunity to spend a day with them in Brooklyn.
Throughout the tour, photographer Rachael Wright captured some great, intimate footage including a snippet from the Star Wars shoot that can be seen in the video for “Get Away” above.
As they head into the studio to record the followup to ‘Bones’ – here’s a look back at some of my favorite moments from the past couple of tours.

A few months ago, I was asked this simple question: “Would you want to shoot their portrait?”
Looking back, this is the moment when all the dominoes started to fall. I’ve always had something to say, but I felt as if the message wasn’t getting through. Shooting portraits has finally given me the platform to vocalize my vision, and since then it’s been pretty insane. I’ve been fortunate enough to collaborate and share experiences with some of the most amazing people. The best part? I’ve made lifelong friends, all because I just took someone’s photograph.
2014 – An unforgettable year, revisited here.

Happy holidays to everyone. So much to be thankful for this year and so much gratitude for all the love and support you’ve shown us.

The visual mood of the blog these days, especially the black and white images in Tim Navis’ new portfolio made me recall a post I saw on WIRED a few months ago.
Between 1966 and ’67, five Lunar Orbiters snapped pictures onto 70mm film from about 30 miles above the moon. The satellites were sent mainly to scout potential landing sites for manned moon missions. Each satellite would point its dual lens Kodak camera at a target, snap a picture, then develop the photograph. High- and low-resolution photos were then scanned into strips called framelets using something akin to an old fax machine reader.
View the complete set of photos and read the interesting story behind how the images were restored by the Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project here.

“Black Beach” by Deru – Outliers, Vol. I: Iceland from ScenicStudio.tv on Vimeo.
Bored with your current Netflix subscription and tired of trying to find something you actually want to watch? Look no further because the Outliers Vol. 1 film has been fully released into the wild. A few years ago, a group of amazing creatives along with myself traveled to Iceland to create a beautiful documentary about Iceland. We teamed with musicians like Shigeto, Loscil, Eskmo, Son Lux, Heathered Pearls and Ryuichi Sakamoto to help us create a visual and sonic piece of art.
Head on over to the Outliers Vol. 1 website to watch the movie in its entirety in HD to bring some inspiration to your weekend.
And if you helped support this project on Kickstarter: THANK YOU!
