Was reminded of this shoot today for some reason.
Been wanting one of these for years. Got this one for Jessina’s birthday. Love her shit.
Vaune Trachtman: zzzzzzbeautiful photographyzzzzzzzzzzzz
Here’s a tip: When dealing with photographers of this caliber look, don’t listen.
This is what Vaune has to say about her photography:
‘Fundamental to my cell phone work is the element of scale: I want to make beautiful, resonant images on a scale that creates a pleasing cognitive dissonance. I want my viewer to have difficulty comprehending that even though the images are large and sometimes seem not to be from our age, they actually originate on the tiny screen of the now ubiquitous cell phone.’
OK. This is what I have to say. This person took my favorite photo ever. Ever. White shoes on an escalator.
More old color photos.
Autochromes of Christina O’Gorman taken by her father. 1913.
These really are beautiful.
Between 1909 and 1912 photographer Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii (1863-1944) undertook a photographic survey of the Russian Empire. The photos from his special camera captured near-to-true color images that succinctly discribe the constant party and tornado of light-hearted gaiety that was Russia in the early nineteen hundreds .
Thanks running enthusiast, tech-writer and all around man’s man dude Bob Parks for the tip on these pictures that (finally!) give me an idea what Russia looked like in glorious color 100 years ago.
Pretty pictures of Mother Russia! Check ‘em out!
