C harming eccentric or tolerated local boogyman? The townspeople of Kyjov in Czech Republic could never quite decide. Miroslav Tichý took nearly a hundred photographs a day with his homemade camera, wandering around the streets of his hometown, often spotted at bus stops, the main square, the park and the swimming pool, although he was frequently arrested for lingering around the local pool taking pictures of unsuspecting women. When he returned to his chaotic and cluttered home afte a day of shooting, he would develop and print his pictures, sometimes crudely frame and decorate them, but ultimately cast them aside into a mess of untitled, undated and unseen photographs.

Cyanea capillata is the largest known species of jellyfish. Its range is confined to cold, boreal waters of the Arctic, northern Atlantic, and northern Pacific Oceans, seldom found farther south than 42°N latitude. Similar jellyfish, which may be the same species, are known to inhabit seas near Australia and New Zealand.
In today’s digital age, it takes fractions of a second to snap a picture and capture a moment. But that is too quick for photographer Michael Weseley. The German-based artist likes to use extremely long exposures in his work, capturing a place over time rather than a place at a specific time. Extremely long exposure is no exaggeration either, as it takes him 2-3 years to take a single picture. The result, though, is hard to argue with. Using special filters, small apertures, an open shutter camera, and a lot of patience, Weseley has been capturing urban development and building projects since the mid-1990s.

Last week, Tunisia's tallest minaret went under the brush of the country's hottest muralist. On the Jara Mosque in his hometown of Gabes, 31-year-old eL Seed painted a verse from the Quran preaching tolerance, a message meant for Salafist Islamists who protested "provocative" pieces at an art exhibition earlier this summer. Because eL Seed works almost exclusively in the Arabic script, that message is tough for any Arabic speaker to miss. In the Western world, the sheer beauty of what eL Seed calls his "calligraffiti" has earned him earnest, if a little lost, fans. But eL Seed himself talks about the script as shape -- ones a viewer doesn't necessarily have to decode to appreciate it. As far as art camps go, you could call him more Picasso than Duchamp .
