It’s a small world after all

Site Specific -- Olivo Barbieri

Site Specific -- Olivo Barbieri

Brilliant stuff at the Morning News.  Olivo Barbieri utilizes a technique called “selected focus” using a tilt-shift lens to make aerial photographs look like snaps of miniature models (scroll down for a brief interview with Barbieri). He currently has a show at the Yancey Richardson Gallery in Manhattan (address below the fold) that runs until December 22nd.

You can check out more of Barbieri’s work here, here, here, here, here, here and here.

Great photos & scans from the past

A retro junky from Amsterdam has posted a stunning collection of photos and scans from the early-mid 1900’s at Flickr and it’s a treasure trove.  You can spend hours trolling through everything she’s posted.  Enjoy.

The Sunday Selector

image

  • WORTH A PEEK: Worth 100 asked its photoshoppers to recreate classic paintings to show what happened moments after the artists completed them.  Great stuff.
  • PICK TO CLICK: Arcade Fire’s new interactive flash video for “Neon Bible” is pretty effin’ cool...
  • I DON’T KNOW ARCHITECTURE BUT I KNOW WHAT I LIKE: The NY Times has a nice peek at the oddball architecture stylings of Ben van Berkel. (And NYC’s Marianne Boesky’s home is gloriously bonkers as well.)
  • MORE GREAT OUT-OF-PRINT AFRICAN: Matsuli delivers with an MP3 download of the 22 Band’s outstanding and extremely rare—even AllMusic.com doesn’t have a listing for it—Venez Voir!!..
