A great capture from Moscow-based photographer Vika Palatova.
New works from South Korean photographer Seung Hoon Park as part of his ongoing series TEXTUS. Park uses a process to overlay or weave together film strips, however this appears to be a single print, so I’m unsure of how he’s making these. My assumption is that it’s not digital, but I could be wrong. Anybody venture a guess of how these are made? See more of his work at Sarah Lee Artworks (via ex-chamber)
Static No. 12 (Seek Stillness in Movement) is a video piece by Australian artist Daniel Crooks who filmed a man performing tai chi and used what appears to be a form of video slit scanning to play it slowly back. I tried to get the actual video for you, but it’s technically unavailable for viewing online (ahem, however — awesome right?). Hopefully one day we’ll be able to watch a clearer version online. Thanks to the Anna Schwartz Gallery for permitting use of the still above.
File this under I had no idea this existed. During the early 20th century residents of Fort Bragg, California chose to dispose of their waste by hurling it off the cliffs above a beach. No object was too toxic or too large as household appliances, automobiles, and all matter of trash were tossed into the crashing waves below, eventually earning it the name The Dumps. In 1967 the North Coast Water Quality Board closed the area completely and initiated a series of cleanups to slowly reverse decades of pollution and environmental damage. But there was one thing too costly (or perhaps impossible) to tackle: the millions of tiny glass shards churning in the surf. Over time the unrelenting ocean waves have, in a sense, cleansed the beach, turning the sand into a sparkling, multicolored bed of smooth glass stones now known as Glass Beach. The beach is now an unofficial tourist attraction and the California State Park System has gone so far as purchasing the property and incorporating it into surrounding MacKerricher State Park.

A helpful tutorial showing how to make levitation photographs. It involves lots of jumping and cursing, so you know. (via flickr)
I have probably seen hundreds of photographs made using in-camera lighting effects, some with simple shapes to typography, and even television ads. However this series of animal and dinosaur skeletons from San Diego-based photographer Darren Pearson seem to be on a wholly different level. I have no idea how he can make something so complex in a single photograph.
