Critic’s Pick: Ansel Adams in a New Light

The National Parks are in partial shutdown. But America’s wilderness shines in a show at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston that reveals how human intervention has changed purple mountains’ majesty.

This Photo of Shanghai is Made of 195,000 Megapixels

Shot from 750+ feet above the city, this 360-degree panorama by BigPixel is made from 195,000 megapixels—for reference, the new Google Pixel shoots at 12.3 megapixels. Since it is one of the most detailed photos ever taken, viewers can zoom from the perch it was taken from all the way down to street-level where faces and license plates can be seen clearly. Though the photo …

After Party

From kitsch to classy, François Prost‘s After Party is a 300-page exploration of French nightclub façades. The collection of photographs was shot during the daytime, offering a strangely alien element to the images—with their neon unlit, doors closed, and void of humans. In contrast, the cover boasts a holographic foil which will stand out on bookshelves or coffee tables. With a poster included, this book is available in an …

The Getty Digital Archive Expands to 135,000 Free Images: Download High Resolution Scans of Paintings, Sculptures, Photographs & Much Much More

J. Paul Getty was not a billionaire known for his generosity. But since his death, the Getty Trust and complex of Getty museums in L.A. have carried forth in a more magnanimous spirit, ostensibly adhering to values that transcend their founder: “service, philanthropy, teaching, and access.” A collection first gathered for private investment and consumption (sometimes under a cloud of scandal) has expanded into galleries that millions pass through every year; a Conservation Institute dedicated t...

Maud Veith's best photograph: a migrant dinghy fleeing Libya

‘The rubber boats are always overloaded and fragile. But at sea, if you don’t take photographs, there will be no evidence’I’m employed by SOS Méditerranée and Médecins Sans Frontières to document humanitarian rescue missions in the Mediterranean. But I’m also part of the team of sailor-rescuers – I received the same training, and learned the same drills and first aid techniques. As a photographer I’m a witness, but there’s always the possibility that I’ll need to put down the camera and be hands...

Stockholm’s Artistically Accessible Photography Destination, Fotografiska

We speak with founder Jan Broman about the brand's DNA, an NYC expansion and more Rising from the northern edge of Södermalm Island in Stockholm harbor, an Art Nouveau building bustles with Swedish cognoscenti. It’s early evening and the former customhouse, built at the turn of the 20th century, crackles with the sort of anticipation a marquee exhibit opening promises. The nearby quay overflows with well-dressed …

Photographer's secret weapon: how to make your pics standout

When you see the work of great photographers, you possibly wonder how do they manage to do it. What magic is enabling them to create these masterpieces?

But the truth is that behind every great photographer is a huge amount of passion, hundreds of hours of practice, and some simple secrets. So obviously, it's not about expensive gear (some photographer...

An Old-School Film Trick Finally Brings Color to the Game Boy Camera

The Game Boy Camera was one of the first truly cheap digital cameras, but the trade-off was that it could only snap grainy, 128x112-pixel black and white photographs. Despite its abysmal image quality, there are still a few photographers who love the Game Boy Camera’s lo-fi aesthetic, including Matt Gray who …Read more...

Trump portrait: you couldn’t create a creepier Yuletide scene if you tried

The formal smartness of the US president and the first lady adds to the emotional numbness of the scene.The absence of intimacy in the Trumps’ official Christmas portrait freezes the heart. Can it be that hard to create a cosy image of the presidential couple, perhaps in front of a roaring hearth, maybe in seasonal knitwear? Or is this quasi-dictatorial image exactly what the president wants to project? Look on my Christmas trees, ye mighty, and despair! If so, it fuels suspicions that it is onl...

After Saving Polaroid, Florian Kaps Wants to Give Its Competitor Another Shot

Polaroid probably wouldn't exist today were it not for Florian Kaps. (Most people know him by his nickname, Doc Flaps.) When Kaps discovered the company's analog instant film in 2004, he started selling it online and built a community of 40,000 instant photography enthusiasts. In 2008, when Polaroid announced it would stop producing its iconic instant film materials, Kaps bought the factory. And in 2012, he rallied a new generation of instant film enthusiasts with his Kickstarter campaign for a ...

An Inexpensive, DIY Automated Dolly for Smartphone Video Capture

We've seen a fair amount of dolly hacks for smartphones, but this has to be the lowest-cost one yet. COOPH, a/k/a the Cooperative of Photography, uses a toy car, a piece of plexi for the "track" and a simple egg timer to provide the motive force: We imagine you could get fancy with it by using pulleys to adjust the speed.

Pantone’s Living Coral In the Spotlight — Time to Spread Its “Life Affirming” Qualities Around

Graphic designers and art directors know a lot about color and how it moves people to believe and to buy. Designers know these things because people who study color help them make informed decisions about the use of color for brands and products. For instance, the trend luminaries at the Pantone Color Institure just announced […] The post Pantone’s Living Coral In the Spotlight — Time to Spread Its “Life Affirming” Qualities Around appeared first on Adpulp.

Breakfast Tray

Serve breakfast on breakfast with this Martin Parr tray. The beloved photographer’s blend of dry humor and anthropology is apparent here—and while the Melamine piece is entirely functional, it’s a shame to cover up the 1995 photo. The image was included in Parr’s book British Food, and is just one of the many culinary-focused pictures in the brilliant photographer’s vast body of work.

Why comparing yourself to others is the WORST (and BEST) thing you can do

Stop me if any of this sounds familiar: You’re lurking a peer’s social media account, and what started as a cursory browse quickly takes a detour down the rabbit hole of self-doubt and envy: “S/he is so much better at X or Y than I am – I’ll never catch up! Look at his/her amazing X or Y and s/he’s always hanging with X or Y celebrity and nobody even knows who I am – ugh, I should just quit and do something else, I’m just not cut out for this” – and so forth. If the above scenario rings painfull...

Uncensored Berlin: iHeartBerlin’s New Exhibition Challenging Social Media Censorship

photo: Majdi Laktinah.  Censorship in digital spaces is pushing against a zeitgeist of sexual diversity and sex positivity. It establishes a dangerous moral code, especially among younger users. iHeartBerlin’s latest exhibition #UncensoredBerlin centers those representations of the human body that are affected by digital censorship and offers the participating artists a unique platform to express themselves freely. “Your post has been removed as it doesn’t follow our community guidelines.” – F...
