TOKYO SLO MODE

tokyo slo mode

Tokyo’s rhythm is hypnotic. The city beats like a metronome. That’s why we love this video by Alex Lee. Armed with his Canon T3i he created a fantastic slow-motion ode to Japan. In the video he highlights everything from architecture and cityscapes, to everyday people and culture. Watch it once and you’ll feel like you visited. It has all the things that make Japan one of our favorite places. And, to top it off, Alex edited these visuals to the beautiful sounds of Flying Lotus and Thom Yorke. It doesn’t get better than that. Click Read More to view the video and a few stills.

URBAN LAND PROJECT

While zooming through the city you might notice a few billboards by Tim Simmons. These aren’t your typical images. Instead of oversized car advertisements, Tim’s billboards display natural landscapes photographed in a way that vividly show texture and detail. Entitled the Urban Land Project, Tim’s work compels viewers to reflect and reconnect with their surroundings. Currently, you can find the large-scale billboards on display in Philadelphia (I-95N) and Los Angeles (N Cahuenga Blvd). Click Read More for more information and photos.

SNAPSHOT JAPAN

We’re excited to present a new editorial series entitled Snapshot. We hope it provides some travel inspiration as fall edges closer and summer’s spontaneity dims. The concept is simple: We ask our favorite travelers to submit photos from a recent trip – no description, no details, no pressure – just photos capturing everyday life and its casual beauty.

Our first Snapshot comes courtesy of Anthony Smyrski – founder of Smyrski Creative. During a trip to Japan, Anthony brilliantly captured those unseen moments that are generally overlooked. Click Read More to view his images from Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka.

CROWD SOURCING

crowd sourcing adam magyar

Crowds can be chaotic, disorienting and strangely beautiful. The images created by Adam Magyar demonstrate this in an unique way. It looks like his overhead photography captures scenes from a busy open square, but the truth is, none of these places exist. All the images are created by layering sets of individual photos over and over until they resemble a bird’s eye view of a busy crowd. It’s interesting to notice how the slightest uniformity in the crowd’s formation suggest that it’s not real. We really enjoyed this series. Click Read More to view.

NEW YORK MAINTAIN

new york sky line

Thankfully New York survived Hurricane Irene with minimal damage. While things return to normal, we’re reminded of a photo collection showing the city’s architecture and skyline. The sheer size of the city and its maze of skyscrapers is awe-inspiring. Sometimes when you’re hustling through the corridors or tending to a busy schedule it’s easy to forget how beautiful the city is. Hopefully these images will help remind us of what is there and what we have. Click Read More to view a few samples of the collection.
