Vu 8/30/07 Description:
a daily, digital photoblog by Andrei Zmievski
Start with an amazingly colorful night shot, then hit the "random" link and you might end up seeing red with an oddly placed door that makes for an interesting shot. Big photos. Andrei apparently launched the photoblog just this month and the vu is beautiful from here...;~))
daniel jacoby 8/27/07 Description:
works by artist Daniel Jacoby Krateil
A short stopmotion video done when Daniel was 20 looks at "two completely different things that have analogical behaviors." It's surprising what those two things are and in the end, I was able to understand his perceived connection between them. Unusual insight. Pixels. Textured color. Short film. Exquisito...
Back2Mine 8/25/07 Description:
travel and documentary photography
It's been listed in the zone for over 5 years – back then, it was Joanna's personal playground for graphic design. It's now become focused on her photography and I love it. There's travel photos from England, Cuba, Morrocco and Sicily, plus series taken with Lomos and other toy cameras – beautiful images!
R&MC's Lomo Gallery 8/22/07 Description:
a showcase of some interesting results using the Holga 120 camera (Flash)
They call themselves Mc and R and say they "recently discovered their passion for Lomography with the beatiful simplicity of Holga 120." Just this week, they got back to showcasing their lomography experiments with a brand new version of the site, sharing some interesting results indeed... [Newstoday® PBS]
The Art of the Photogravure 8/21/07 Description:
celebrating the beauty and history of the photogravure process and its role in the evolution of fine art photography
An "all but forgotten art," the photogravure
printmaking process originated back in the 19th century, used to produce some of the first photographs ever made. Known for its "unique tonal range" and "rich depth and texture," the process became an "effective tool" of the Pictorialists, playing an integral role in the "evolution of fine art photography." There's still some active practitioners of the art of the photogravure around the world and today's pick certainly lives up to its claim of being a comprehensive resource on the topic...
Sutemos 8/17/07 Description:
subjective IDM (intelligent dance music) e-zine and net label based in Lithuania
I'm sitting here typing with some cool minimal techno by Monolake playing in the background – sweet! Today's pick, a net label, recently updated with its 18th release, a CC-licensed album by Lithuanian music creator Leon Somov, featuring singer Jazzu (what a voice!). In addition to its downloadable releases, the site's also an e-zine of sorts with reviews and articles pertaining to IDM and other musical genres, plus a virtual gallery of related artworks. "Enjoy. As you always do." Ditto...;~)) [Newstoday® PBS]
art-pics.de 8/16/07 Description:
photography by Angelika Klauser (Flash)
I know, it's the third photography site in a row, but Angelika Klauser is so gifted when it comes to architectural and portrait photography (in my opinion) that I just couldn't resist! Hopefully you'll feel it too...
Zach Vitale 8/15/07 Description:
"With The Binary Series, my goal is to explore my ability to communicate aesthetically through color, shape, and form, while at the same time incorporate messages that are inherently mine, which the viewer may or may not notice." While photographer Zach Vitale realizes how important effective communication can be in life and relationships, he finds it challenging, saying the images "might serve as metaphors for the complexity of our daily conversations." There's 2 other sections of great photos besides the ongoing Binary Series, including some of my favorite photo subjects, like tasty walls, doorways, and decay...
Last Night's Garbage 8/12/07 Description:
documenting garbage on the streets of New York City
Today's pick has something to say about garbage. "Each day the United States throws away enough trash to fill 63,000 garbage trucks." The photographer behind the site has been busy snapping trash in New York City since the middle of last month and I doubt he'll run out of subject matter any time soon.

One Stone Eye 8/7/07 Description:
photography by Stephen Blackstone
Many of Stephen's photos feature frogs, snakes, and turtles, but the cute critters (cute to me, anyway) are just one element of the unusual subject matter in any given shot. Spectacles, old keys, and feathers are among the other objects you'll also find in Stephen's incredible photo compositions. Definitely filed under cool creativity...
onVertigo 8/2/07 Description:
"When things aren't quite going my way, I like to think back and reflect on this, comparatively my problems seem trivial." That shot from a recent trip to Africa certainly makes one think. Beautiful critters and accidental gems also came out of that trip, along with colorful memories of a stopover in Amsterdam. Back home in Montreal now, with its own special color and opportunities for adventure, new memorable moments are sure to be captured...
