Alex Passapera is an illustrator/fine artist based out of New York. He has some downright wild, as in pretty awesome drawings in his portfolio. It’s either the stuff of dreams or nightmares. Maybe nightmares. But still awesome.

About photographer Christian Weber from his website:
“Christian Weber (b. 1971) is a visual artist born in Cincinnati, Ohio. A few years after his birth his family moved to Florida where he started taking photographs at the age of fourteen. He later graduated from the Southeast Center for Photograpahic Studies which in turn propelled him to New York City into a career in the arts.

Creating assured images, Weber demonstrates a raw elegance that is at once provisional and precise. His celebrated portraits, architecture, and landscapes reveal a talent equally open to the verve and beauty of contemporary life. His photographs appear regularly in such publications as Life, Details, The New York
Times Magazine, and Interview. “

I received one of those mass ad agency emails from NYC photographers Russ and Reyn today and most of the time, I delete those emails but I clicked the link because they looked interesting and to my chagrin they have some really smart and fun photography in their portfolio. Can’t tell you much about them other than that but their work does enough talking.

If you have been seeing all of the weird pictures of naked people floating today it is all because of the new website for the creative studio Legs. They deserve the attention as well for the work they have produced so far for clients like Diesel and the NY Times.

Vicente Sahuc filmed the above video recently in New York City while roller skating with his inexpensive casio camera. The camera was mounted on a steadicam that was shooting at 300 fps. After color correcting it himself he reduced the frame rate to 24 frames per second to create the slow motion effect. The result is pretty incredible considering the home-made setup. Expect to see more of this kind of thing in the future as video technology gets better and even more affordable.

I can’t wait until people start shooting quality full length movies. I say do it yourself. Hollywood has got to be sweating. I think very soon the  internet will have them on the run.

Goran was kind enough to send his work to me today and I was really impressed. Great work. What talent at such a young age and to have already had experience at Brand New School. Keep your eye on him.

A little about Photographer Graeme Mitchell:
“Born in Manitoba in 1980. Moved with family to various small towns in the Pacific Northwest. Studied Literature. Raced bicycles and raced and coached alpine skiing. Relocated to NYC in ‘05. Currently focusing on fashion and portrait photography. Enthusiastic about traditional black and white work, challenging his subjects, collaborating with his talented team, and not compromising. Is attracted to photography because of the inherent limitations and at the same time the immense possibilities of the medium. Believes in art, and, incidentally, love.”
