Dreamlike Pictures of a One-Month Trip in New Zealand

by Léa

Il y a quelques semaines, le photographe suisse Renaud Kritzinger nous faisait voyager au Groenland. Cette fois-ci, il nous emmène en Nouvelle-Zélande. Il a effectué un road trip durant un mois, en solitaire au volant d’un van. Il est ainsi parti à la découverte des deux îles, entre montagnes, volcans et paysages maritimes, mais également à la découverte de la faune locale.

HUS-1 – The Ultra Tiny House Of Your Dreams

by dmitry

Over the past few weeks we have seen a massive popularity spike in “small space” architecture and design. It seems that design and architecture firms are starting to really think outside the box, creating projects that are targeted toward the minimalist consumer.

More info: Torsten Ottesjö

The beautiful project to come across our desks is this beautiful Hus-1 Residence. The tiny dwelling is just 270 square feet and was both built and designed by the Swedish architect Torsten Ottesjö. The entire objective of the home was to create something that was far away from an urban environment in an attempt to provide an optimal living environment.

”Hus 1 regularly houses two people all year round but visiting friends always have room. Kitchen, sleeping quarters, dinner table, hallway and other functions are well integrated on just 25 square metres of living space.”

These Funny Photos Show A Rather Annoying Crow Irritating An Eagle

by dmitry


Greaves B. Henriksen/Caters News Agency

The crow tirelessly circles the bird of prey and repeatedly lands on his head – much to the crows displeasure. The encounter was spotted by Greaves Henriksen in Tamilnadu, India. The 52-year-old amateur photographer believes the eagle was sitting close to a nest, which the crow was trying to defend. Here: A crow lands on the eagles head much to the eagles displeasure.

Le livre « A Russian Journal », publié en 1948 par The Viking Press, rend compte du voyage de John Steinbeck, écrivain, et Robert Capa, photo-journaliste, en URSS pendant l’année 1947.

Un reportage incroyablement vrai et percutant ayant comme intention d’illustrer la vie dans l’Union Soviétique sous Staline, pendant les premières années de la Guerre Froide. Un document historique de valeur inestimable.

archatlas: The Middle Landscape by David Bernstein In the...



















archatlas:

The Middle Landscape by David Bernstein

In the words of the artist David Bernstein:

There is an image I like to show my environmental history classes at the beginning of every semester. It acts as a sort of litmus test to gage their existing attitudes towards the subject matter we will be spending the next fifteen weeks examining: human beings interaction with the natural world. George Innes’ 1856 painting The Lackawanna Valley depicts a pastoral scene with a lone figure lounging in the foreground, gazing at a relatively innocuous roundhouse and railroad in the middle distance.  The harmlessness of the railroad is put into question, however, by a stand of trees that have been reduced to stumps, one assumes, to provide material for the railroad.  Whether the students see sublimity, nostalgia, pro-industrial boosterism or a lament for destroyed nature tells me a lot about where we are beginning our journey.

image

In 1964, cultural historian Leo Marx famously described the artistic depiction of the tension between the pastoral ideal and technological innovation as “the middle landscape.”  In Marx’s definition, the middle landscape was a “new, distinctly American, post-romantic, post-romantic , industrial version of the pastoral design.” This series builds on Marx’s assessment and pushes it to its extreme. Capturing graphic and clean scenes, often of what might be considered the natural word, I create a calm space for the viewer enter. Yet by placing the focal point—sometimes banal, other times more sinister—in both the middle of the scene and in the middle distance, I ask the viewer to take up the place of the lounging figure in Innes’ painting and contemplate the object’s relationship to its surroundings.

The misty of Borobudur “the history never end” … 

Daniel Tjongari was born in Surabaya, Indonesia, on January 8, 1977. For Daniel photography is about imagination, emotion and trying to put a little of your soul into every picture you take. It really doesn’t matter what gear you have. He always imagine what I want to say in each of the pictures. Creating a real picture becomes unreal in his camera this is what he love about photography.

Borobudur, or Barabudur, is a 9th-century Mahayana Buddhist Temple in Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia. The monument consists of nine stacked platforms, six square and three circular, topped by a central dome. The temple is decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues. The central dome is surrounded by 72 Buddha statues, each seated inside a perforated stupa. It is the world’s largest Buddhist temple, as well as one of the greatest Buddhist monuments in the world.

Ovnis, abducciones, terror extraterrestre y ¿arte callejero?

Atentos a esta esta espeluznante (y surrealista) escena urbano-campestre.

No sabemos si es real, si es un montaje o si, como algunas mentes lúcidas apuntan, se trata de una pieza genial de arte callejero.

Si se trata de ésto último, desconocemos cualquier detalle respecto a su origen y localización. Solo sabemos que lo hemos visto en los twitters del @CamaradaBakunin y de @suddiraval.
