Depot series from photographer Branislav Kropilak.
I don’t know how many times I have fallen asleep with my face in a book, although lately I’m falling asleep with my laptop. I know I’m gonna kill it that way and have to go back to reading books before bed.
Check out this whimsical series of photos titled Get Back in Your Book from Canadian photographer Lissy Elle.
I love these photos from French photographer Denis Darzacq. I’ve seen suspended motion photographs many times before but what makes these stand out is the supermarket and it’s vibrant color as a backdrop.

San Antonio Texas artist Ansen Seale uses slit scan-photography to capture what he refers to as a “hidden reality” . All in camera work and no manipulation using Photoshop or darkroom tricks. Creepy and cool.
Portland Oregon photographer Robbie Augspurger’s series of head shots remind me of those awkward high school photos that no one ever wants to see again. The outfits and hair styles in these shots, do resemble the hipster hot mess retro styles often seen in the Mission district of San Francisco, except the phones aren’t as cool.

From the book, Sound Affects by Brooklyn artist Christian Patterson. 2005

There is a strange calmness I love about these photographs from Amy Stein’s Domesticated series. For anyone who lives in the American west, close to the foothills or in the mountains, there is probably sense a familiarity with some of these images.
Crazy Horse photos by Julian Wolkenstein.
This brilliant photo by Gainsbury & Whiting for designer Alexander McQueen humorously references Damien Hirst’s fetishized dead animals suspendend in formaldehyde filled vitrines. There’s a subtle irony with the deer gazing at a posthumous floating Hirst and and yet the indirect irony of this photo lies in the fact that although the artist has made a fortune off the dead, he would be even wealthier if he himself were dead. Hirst is a master a self-marketing and understands the value of the Damien Hirst brand. He was recently able to circumvent his galleries and go directly to auction with his work and the payoff was huge even with a global economy in dire straits.
