To the closer followers of Marvel, and the mechanics behind their super hero films, Christmas came early last night when Marvel released a short “documentary” about Avengers Infinity War. The video is quite informative, and gives the laymen some news they will be excited about, and the comic book connoisseur some things to be excited about. (Why doesn’t Thor have his Hammer, and are Tony’s new suits automated, or is building them for himself.) Regardless of how deep movie goers get into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the video below provides a very interesting look into the 3rd Avengers installment.
Not too long ago, there was a post about German photographer André Josselin‘s photos during his trip to Lollapalooza. There were so many photos we couldn’t put them all into one post, so in part 2, we’re going to pick up right where we left off. Once again you can tell by the rest of his collection how incredibly talented of a photographer he is.
German photographer André Josselin out of Hamburg took a trip with friends to the Lollapolooza festival in Chicago. This unique collection of amazing shots, was beautifully edited, and really brings through the feelings of excitement and allure of not only the city of Chicago, but how good of a time they must have had. Unfortunately the compendium of photos is so large, we had to split it up into two posts. Check out André’s work below, and expect to see some of the rest very soon.
London-based photographer Roman Sakovich gives us a glimpse of the drastic visual differences that substance abuse can cause in his series titled Half. By splitting his subjects’ style choices and physical appearances straight down the middle of their portraits, the photographer presents a before and after composite image that shows us two timelines—one of the addict (on the right) and one of the non-user who still has the choice to change his or her fate.
While you might think that a great deal of Photoshop was used to produce each image, Sakovich says that most of the effects were created in-camera. The transformations were accomplished with skilled costuming and makeup design rather than post splicing and merging. The result is an eye-opening look at the damaging effects of drug abuse, especially meth addiction which is known to have a considerable amount of impact on one’s physical appearance. While the photographer admits it is a stereotypical and perhaps superficial look at substance abuse, it is, nonetheless, effective.
Clouds are natural canvases and in certain conditions, they can look very picturesque. French artist and photographer Charles Pétillion drew inspiration from the visually limitless variations of cloud formations to create a cumulus cloud using over 10,000 illuminated white balloons. The installation, titled, “Heartbeat”, is featured inside London’s Covent Garden and stretches the length of its entire South Hall.
Describing the project, Pétillion says, “With Heartbeat I wanted to represent the Market Building as the beating heart of this area — connecting its past with the present day to allow visitors to re-examine its role at the heart of London’s life.” Check out some more photos below.
