This is a wonderfully done series that gives you pause to think, about the passage of time and the lives we are living. via [WallToWatch] From Kenn: Do you like what we are doing?

Jean-Marie Vives Come to the The Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles from now till May 28, 2012 to see Digital Darkroom, a brand new exhibit that explores that important intersection between art and technology. Featuring the works of many photographers we've featured right here on My Modern Met, like Pierre Beteille, Jerry Uelsmann and Brooke Shaden, Digital Darkroom shines a spotlight on those who've made the courageous jump from photographer to digital artist, the ones who've manipulated their photos in such a way that they've created something unique and otherworldly. Here's what the LA Times had to say about it: "All the artists but one have used Photoshop and digital to bring their imagination to life. New Photo Exhibit Celebrates Photoshop

25 Abandoned Soviet Monuments that look like they're from the Future These structures were commissioned by former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito in the 1960s and 70s to commemorate sites where WWII battles took place (like Tjentište, Kozara and Kadinjača), or where concentration camps stood (like Jasenovac and Niš). They were designed by different sculptors (Dušan Džamonja, Vojin Bakić, Miodrag Živković, Jordan and Iskra Grabul, to name a few) and architects (Bogdan Bogdanović, Gradimir Medaković...), conveying powerful visual impact to show the confidence and strength of the Socialist Republic. In the 1980s, these monuments attracted millions of visitors per year, especially young pioneers for their "patriotic education." After the Republic dissolved in early 1990s, they were completely abandoned, and their symbolic meanings were forever lost.
Gerd Ludwig's 'Long Shadow of Chernobyl' project Internationally-renowned photojournalist Gerd Ludwig has spent years documenting the aftermath of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. In 1986, errors at the plant in Ukraine led to an explosion that ultimately caused over a quarter of a million people to permanently evacuate their homes to escape the radiation and radioactive fallout. Over the course of several trips to the site and the region for National Geographic Magazine in 1993, 2005, and 2011, Ludwig has amassed a documentary record of a people and a place irreparably altered by a tragic accident. His 2011 trip was partially funded by a Kickstarter campaign.
