from 1x.com. Looks like “artists post their stuff here. Some of the stuff is clearly shopped. Most, but not all is SFW, and you don’t know what is going to load, so I’d have to call the site NSFW.Images on November 3rd, 2010 by GrandAdmiralThrawn | Report This Post | Add to favorites

San Francisco had been eclipsed by Los Angeles in size, but it remained the most important port and financial center of the West.
And Charles Cushman had to take a photograph of his new coupe beside the recently-completed Golden Gate Bridge.
Nearly half of all Americans still lived on farms and in small towns.
The Farmall Tractor had revolutionized farming, but mechanization remained limited.

This dream-like picture shows each phase of the sun over Bristol’s Clifton Suspension Bridge taken during half a year.
The image was captured on a pin-hole camera made from an empty soda can with a 0.25mm aperture and a single sheet of photographic paper.
Photographer Justin Quinnell strapped the camera to a telephone pole overlooking the Gorge, where it was left between December 19, 2007 and June 21, 2008–the Winter and Summer solstices. (That’s a 15,552,000 second exposure.)
‘Solargraph’ shows six months of the sun’s luminescent trails and its subtle change of course caused by the earth’s movement in orbit. The lowest arc being the first day of exposure on the Winter solstice, while the top curves were captured mid-Summer.
(Dotted lines of light are the result of overcast days when the sun struggled to penetrate the cloud.)

This is a photograph of Faro and Doris Caudill, farmers in Pietown, New Mexico.
They lived in a dugout and struggled to survive on Resettlement Administration land.
As the 1930s came to a close, Kodak came out with Kodachrome film – the first commercially viable color film available to the general public. In 1937 and 1938, the colors were still not stable and accurate, but by 1939 Kodachrome was producing color images of remarkable precision.
Now, not just anybody could buy this film. It cost $5 per roll and had to be sent back to Rochester, New York for development. By comparison, in 1938 Congress established the first minimum wage at 25 cents per hour. $5 represented half a week’s work. But the Farm Security Administration sent out about a dozen photographers with this new film. Commercial photographer, Samuel Gottscho, and well-to-do amateur, Charles Cushman, embraced this new technology, as well.
New York City was the metropolis of America.
Times Square was the happening place. Big date. Hop in a taxi.
And go see Night Train at the Globe Theater.

The Rio Caño Cristales, also known as “the river that ran away to paradise”, “the most beautiful river in the world”, and “the river of five colours”. is world famous for its colorful display, located near the town of La Macarena in Colombia, South America.
During a brief span between the wet and dry seasons , when the water level is just right, the many varieties of algae and moss located at the bottom of the river, bloom in a brilliant display of colors. Areas of yellow, blue, green, black, and red – and a thousand shades in between – coat the river.
See more (and bigger) images after the jump.
The part of the river where the colorful blooms occur is quite isolated and is not accessible by road. Adventurous tourists can now fly into La Macarena and then make their way to to the river site on foot as part of guided tours. The site was effectively closed to tourists for several years because of guerrilla activity in the region along with concerns about the impact of unregulated tourist traffic. However, the site was reopened to visitors in 2009. So far, only about 1,000 people have visited Caño Cristales, including around 100 foreign tourists.Images on March 22nd, 2010 by GrandAdmiralThrawn | Report This Post | Add to favorites

Butterflies Trying to Escape Their Shadow, 2005
Acid-free A4 80 gsm paper and glue
About my paper works
My paper works have been based around an exploration of the relationship between two and three dimensionality. I find this materialization of a flat piece of paper into a 3D form almost a magic process – or maybe one could call it obvious magic, because the process is obvious and the figures still stick to their origin, without the possibility of escaping. In that sense there is also an aspect of something tragic in most of the cuts. Some of the small paper cuts relate to a universe of fairy tales and romanticism, as for instance Impenetrable Castle inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Steadfast Tin Soldier, in which a tin soldier falls in love with a paper ballerina, living in a paper castle. Other paper cuts are small dramas in which small figures are lost within and threatened by the huge powerful nature. Others again are turning the inside out, or letting the front and the back of the paper meet – dealing with impossibility, illusions, and reflections.
I find the A4 sheet of paper interesting to work with, because it is probably the most common and consumed media and format for carrying information today, and in that sense it is something very loaded. This means that we rarely notice the actual materiality of the A4 paper. By removing all the information and starting from scratch using the blank white 80gsm A4 paper as a base for my creations, I feel that I have found a material which we all are able to relate to, and at the same time is non-loaded and neutral and therefore easier to fill with different meanings. The thin white paper also gives the paper sculptures a fragility which underlines the tragic and romantic theme of the works.Images on March 19th, 2010 by GrandAdmiralThrawn | Report This Post | Add to favorites
