There is a shot from Alfred Hitchcock’s movie, North by Northwest, that this image by @cuzsamiam reminds me of. I’ve always been obsessed with that image, and I love seeing geometric and artfully balances frames.
Another Friday, another awesome assemblage of photo-related fascination, including a stunning history of underwater photography, some extra-hot wedding shots, Chris Suspect’s impending punk show photo book, and fund-raising for a scammed photographer. Have at it!
- Photographer Kamaran Najm Ibrahim was killed in Iraq on Thursday.
- Reiner Riedler photographs archived film reels, capturing the beauty of the object while evoking the memory of that movie.
- For World Oceans Day, National Geographic compiled a brief history of underwater photography.
- The Leica Store DC announced their newest Oskar Barnack Wall winning photo. Congrats to Chris Suspect, whose photo was also one of our In Frame selections last month.
- Speaking of Chris Suspect, he has a new photo book showcasing his 30 years of photographing punk rock show available for pre-sale.
- An Oregon couple had to relocate their wedding because of a wildfire, but managed to get some smoking photos. They were taken by photographer Josh Newton.
- “Both Sides Of is a photography project that juxtaposes side-by-side portraits of models whose faces have been photoshopped to be mirror images of the left and right sides of their faces.”
- The BBC has a selection of photos taken by a very young Stanley Kubrick.
- Al Satterwhite spent several weeks following Muhammed Ali at the Fifth Street Gym in Miami Beach in the early 1970’s, and is trying to raise money via Kickstarter to create a book of the photos.
- The terrain of Iceland is always awe inspiring, but these infrared photographs by Andy Lee make the landscape look otherworldly.
- “When Anzalee and Kristain Rhodes look back at their daughter’s first year of life, they won’t be examining blurry, red-eyed camera phone photos. Each month, a team of professional photographers shoots them as they go about their daily lives at home and around New York City.”
- Austin-based photographer Polly Chandler was scammed by a fake buyer, and Wells Fargo is holding her accountable for the cashier’s check they later decided was fake. She’s having a print sale through Friday to help her recoup the losses.
- And finally, in tiger news, researchers in the Primorye region of Russia are using camera traps to document the Amur tiger. They “developed pattern-recognition software that could be used to match tiger skins traded on the black market with images in the database to help identify where poachers killed the animal.”
