Facity

March 12, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Facity (face + city) is a daily portrait photography project that started in Berlin in 2008 and opened its doors to internationally in early 2010. Any photographer can submit a portrait photo provided that it’s taken in a manner that meets the Facity manifest guidelines. The resulting body of portraits now numbers in the thousands, all taken with natural light without visible clothing, and with an aperture of 2.8 with a 50mm lens. Take a look!

Wind

March 3, 2011

Wind is a new 15-photo series from Cincinnati-based photographer Jonathan Robert Willis. Via his web site, “The idea was to use a hi-powered wind source to misshape and contort the face, as we captured various moments on camera, leaving what is usually completely in our control to chance. […] The sessions were brief (15 minutes each) since the experience was relatively uncomfortable.” Probably an understatement, but what hilarious results. These will be all over the internet in the next few days I’m sure. (via behance)

Hideyuki Sawayanagi

Japanese artist Hideyuki Sawayanagi creates incredible halftone photographs by drilling hundreds of small holes at variable widths into sheets of aluminum. Or at least that’s the only way I can imagine it. Click on the photos to see the detail, but also squint your eyes or back away from the monitor to see the photos emerge more vividly. A couple more images over at the ex-chamber museum.
