How do lovers sleep?

sleep of the beloved 4

In a project called The Sleep of the Beloved, photographer Paul Schneggenburger captures a couple’s most intimate moment: their sleep. Using long-exposure photography he creates these ethereal, haunting, black & white images, where faces and limbs are combined in a single aura.

The beloved are photographed inside Paul’s studio, from midnight to six in the morning, in black sheets, under candle-light. The project is ongoing and you can take part by contacting the photographer.

Shiro to Kuro means Black and White

March 9, 2011 § 3 Comments

With tumblr-like, curator websites being the fad in the internet at the moment, you see a lot of content and concept recycling out there. But once in a while you come across something either truly original, or truly beautiful. Shirotokuro lies in the latter category. In its own words it is “a curated gallery of exquisite design, illustration and photography distilled to it’s purest monochromatic elements of black and white”. It sure is.

London diorama

March 9, 2011 § 3 Comments

File this under: incredibly amazing.

Sohei Nishino is a very persistent photographer, to say the least. He roamed the streets of London by foot, took 4000 photographs printed them in his dark room and created this collage by hand (with a little help of the old scissors and glue). The end result looks like an aerial view of London, faithful to its topography, although it is made up from street view snapshots.

And I repeat: incredibly amazing.
