Last year artist and photographer Kien Lam quit his job and bought a one-way plane ticket to London. Camera in hand he embarked on an epic backpacking journey around the world shooting over 6,000 photographs that he compiled in this lovely short video set to music by William Lam. Resisting… urge… to buy… plane tickets. Beautiful work. (via stellar, gizmodo) More

Artist Cassanda C. Jones has just completed a new series where she meticulously arranges long-exposure photographs of stormy skies, using small fragments of lightning strikes to form line drawings of electrified rabbits and circles.

Arno Rafael Minkkinen is a Finnish photographer who has lived and worked in the United States for the better part of 45 years. His work explores an uncanny juxtaposition between the human body and landscapes, where body parts function as integral parts of trees, rivers, skylines, and rock formations. Many of his photos require extreme physical risk, dangling his body from cliffs, holding his breath underwater, or at times facing his greatest psychological fears. More

A new commercial for NTT Docomo’s Touch Wood SH-08C wooden-encased phone, created by Morihiro Harano of Drill Inc. The video follows a small wooden ball that traverses a sloped xylophone “track”, relying only on the force of gravity to gradually play Bach’s Cantata 147. If only more advertising was this brilliant. (via spoon and tamago) More

Generally when I encounter stereographic photos they all tend to look the same to me, or it seems like an overused effect applied at will to any image simply to make it “cool”. I genuinely feel that way about tilt-shift photos lately. However when I saw Josh Sommer‘s work today I knew immediately this was something different, something better. There’s a crispness and intensity to these photos, in that they appear to have been planned from the beginning instead of having an effect slapped on afterward. More
