JOHN WILDGOOSE

Travel isn’t always glamorous. Travel can be hard. And at times it can be lonely – especially when leaving loved ones. But through it all there’s something about travel that makes you go back for more no matter what the experience – good or bad. That’s what we love about these photos by John Wildgoose. His images remind us of those lonely trips that had an unusual or even unexpected beauty.

As John describes the series, “Trying to capture the harrowing alienation of life flitting from one hotel room to the next, where states, countries, even continents begin to merge into one another. The desperate isolation, jetlag, weekends filled with untrammeled boredom, and weeks fueled by gruesome food and cable TV all combine to induce a miasma of psychotic abstraction. But I still drop everything if it means traveling somewhere.” Click Read More for more information and a closer look.

EASTERN & SOUTHERN AFRICA

Public transportation is a reliable way to get the full experience of any place. The only thing better is walking or riding a bike. It’s spontaneous and it lets you experience a city like a local. So when we came across the photography of Dillon Marsh we had to share it. Over a two month period, Dillon and his girlfriend traveled from Nairobi to Cape Town strictly via public transportation. And while they did it, they photographed the entire experience. The end result is a beautiful collection of images providing the viewer with a taste of eastern and southern Africa. Click Read More to view a sample of Dillon’s images.

VIENNA LIVING

Annabell Ritschel

Annabell Ritschel is a great story teller. We discovered her work yesterday and have been lost in it ever since. Her Vienna series illustrates a quiet and introspective take on the unique European city. As she describes it, Vienna’s urban areas distinguish themselves from other European cities in two ways. On one hand they had numerous social housing programs that emerged from the Red-Vienna policies started in 1923. On the other hand they developed many garden plots to compensate for the food shortage. By dealing with the lack of food and housing, there was a development of two forms of housing that are an integral part of the city. Click Read More for a closer look at Annabell’s Vienna Living. We posted a few samples below. But you can view her entire body of work here.
