Just outside New York City, there’s a sprawling, 57-room mansion sitting on 6 acres and equipped with a bowling alley, indoor tennis court, two bars, a library, opulent interiors, with spiral staircases and chandeliers. It is also entirely abandoned. Built in the late 1930s and last inhabited in the 1970s, the neglect is allegedly down to an owner who would buy lavish mansions and leave them to rot. While the building itself is in need of repairs, the collections within it remain untouched and have been beautifully captured by photographer Bryan Sansivero – there are dolls, old photographs, plastic flowers, paintings and two pianos, stark reminders of a privileged life from the past. Fascinating stuff! 🙂
With his Flesh Love Returns and Zatsuran series, artist Haruhiko Kawaguchi, aka Photographer Hal, continues to pack couples in vacuum sealed bags, transforming them into pre-packaged, manufactured products, questioning the place and the existence of true love in our society. Slightly WTF but very original creations 🙂
Kids of the 90s, check out Game Boy Camera Man, an Instagram account dedicated to the Nintendo Game Boy camera. This nostalgic feed pays tribute to the forerunner of the digital camera by creating all images using this gadget and posting black and white photos with a groundbreaking resolution of 128 × 128 pixels. Love it! – Happy Friday, everyone 🙂
Created for The New York Times entitled ‘Desktop Dining’, photographer Brian Finke documented the depressing reality of lunches at the office, capturing employees eating in front of their computer, during a meeting or in the lunch area – simple images where the cold and corporate universe of the workplace contrasts with dodgy sandwiches and dripping pizza.
A highly sensual, contemporary, and unbridled short film directed by photographer and director Barnaby Roper, ‘Scratch-N-Sniff’ oscillates between obvious erotic symbols, innuendo and psychedelic sequences. Superb photographic and film production values at work here. Love it! 🙂
We love the creations of British illustrator Yoyo The Ricecorpse who is back with a new series of awesome animated creature GIFs, drawn directly over her own photographs. Very cool…Happy Friday! 🙂
We love these awesome photos of the iconic 1950s Greek cafés & milk bars of Australia that brought ‘exotic’ food and art deco glamour to our suburbs and country towns. Since the 1930s, Greek families had opened cafés & milk bars across Australia at all hours, seven days a week with some having American names like The Niagara, Astoria and The Paragon and decorated in glamorous art deco style while serving coffee, milkshakes, fancy sundaes, steak and eggs with chips. For hundreds of images and stories, check out the website for the new book Greek Cafés & Milk Bars of Australia, which documentary photographer Effy Alexakis and historian Leonard Janiszewski have spent 30 years researching, and as it turns out, were uniquely Australian. Just another reason to love this country! 🙂
We love this selection of architectural photographs by artist Dennis Ramos who captures the clean lines, geometric shapes and lights of an urban environment in dark imagery that plays with powerful contrasts. For more of Dennis’ amazing work, check out his Instagram account – it’s sensational stuff! Happy Friday, everyone 🙂
