IMAGES OF SOUTH KOREA

south korea by justine chang

Justine Chang is a talented artist and photographer. Over the past year we became friends while she interned at our office. Recently, she traveled to South Korea and when she returned she shared with us a fantastic collection of photos. Naturally I asked if I could share them with our readers. The images are subtle and still, but they suggest an unseen hustle – a work ethic rich with modern and traditional symbols.

As Justine describes it, “This series weaves in and out of the city and the countryside, the modern and the traditional, the clean and the raw. The interesting thing is that sometimes the traditional is in the city, and the clean lines and geometry are found in rural towns. I think South Korea is open and willing to adapt Western ideas while remaining loyal to conventional morals and values. It’s definitely on its way to, if not already, making a huge mark in the global community.” Click Read More to view.

AIRPORT ON TILT

Tilt Shift photography is the filter de jur. Apps like TiltShifGen popularized the effect that takes real life images and makes them look like models or miniatures. The above photo looks like a tilt shifted image of a real airport, but it’s not. Much like life imitating art, imitating life, Hamburg’s Minatur Wunderland spent $5 Million to create a model airport with staggering detail. Earlier this month, the museum opened its model Knuffingen Airport to the public. Click Read More for additional information and a closer look.

SOMEWHERE TO GO

bernd wichmann

We recently discovered the awe-inspiring photography of Bernd Edgar Wichmann. Born in Aachen and now residing in Düsseldolf, his images capture the essence of travel in a refreshing way. Each shot is atmospheric. Yet, they don’t feel staged. In fact, many would be impossible to stage. It’s incredible how he seems to be in the right place at the right time to shoot a thought provoking moment. After viewing his body of work, Bernd has quickly become one of our favorite photographers. If you’re looking for a bit of travel inspiration, definitely follow this artist.

Download Wallpaper: Paris by King Britt

This week’s travel inspired wallpaper comes courtesy of the world traveling DJ and Producer, King Britt. You may remember the interview we did with King for our travel chronicles series. Here he supplies us with a fantastic shot of Paris. We like the everyday non-chalant feel of the photo. As he describes it, “I particularly liked this shot of Paris because itʼs a side thatʼs not often shown in travel photos. Plus thereʼs a peaceful vibe that exists thatʼs hard to explain.” Download the wallpaper here. In the file, we’ve included multiple sizes for your convenience. Also keep up to date with King’s travels here and here. Click Read More for additional information about our wallpaper series.

A FORGOTTEN FUTURE

abandoned yugoslavia monuments

During the 1960 and 70s Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito commissioned elaborate structures to be built in recognition of various WWII battles. He hoped these monuments would represent the strength and longevity of the Social Republic. They were popular during the 80s and collectively attracted millions of visitors. But after the dissolution of the Republic in the early 90s many of them were completely abandoned and forgotten. That is until photographer Jan Kempenaers set out to photograph all the structures for his series entitled Spomenik – The End of History. We posted a few photographs below. While each of them have hyper futuristic qualities, it’s interesting to view them in their lonely and dilapidated state.

ANALOG TRANSIT

Sergey Neamoscou

Sergy Neamoscou’s photography is soothing. In today’s world of high-gloss imagery, it’s nice to see photos that rally imperfection and display something beautiful. His work is like listening to vinyl. There’s a thriving rhythm, but under an analog hum Sergy finds a way to slow things down so you pay attention to every part. This is most noticeable in his collection of subway photographs. We’ve selected a few images to give you a taste of his work. Click Read More to view.

FLIGHT RECORDER

A plane’s flight recorder is an important part of air travel. But it’s also something we hope is never used. Just the mention of a black box summons thoughts of tragedy, so it’s hard to look at the device as a thing of beauty. However, Jeffrey Milstein’s photography finds a way to put the flight recorder front-and-center among our fears, curiosities and fascinations. His imagery shows the object’s durability which unlocks its beautiful purpose to provide information that could be used to prevent a tragedy from happening in the future. We have a few photos from his collection posted below. Click Read More to view.
