| women in photography | shadi ghadirian Qajar 1 Qajar In the series Qajar, I tried to reconstruct the atmosphere of a previous era by using old backdrops. When I was working on this series of photographs, I had just graduated and the duality and contradiction of life at that time provided the motive for me to display this contrast: a woman who one can not say to what time she belongs; a photograph from two eras; a woman who is dazed; a woman who is not connected to the objects in her possession. Qajar 2 Qajar 3 Qajar 4 Qajar 5 Qajar 6 Qajar 8 Qajar 9 Qajar 11 Qajar 12 Qajar 18 Qajar 22 Qajar 24 Bio Shadi Ghadirian was born in 1974 in Tehran, Iran. Her work is intimately linked to her identity as a Muslim woman living in Iran.

Straight From The Curls: Paper Inspired - StumbleUpon I'm always in awe of creative thinkers and innovators. People who take simple, everyday things and make them beautiful. Case and point -- these artists, who have taken their love for words, letters, script, and literature to a whole new level. Spectacular! Who would have thunk it? Such a fun idea! So true. Brilliant idea. I wouldn't even open this gift if it came my way. Love! xo SimiImages courtesy of The Craft of &Then and Now& Photography If you have access to old post cards or other photographs of your locality, it's a rewarding project to make “then and now” documents which compare them to present-day views you've photographed from the same viewpoint. There's more to reproducing the perspective of century-old photos than you might think at the outset; I've learnt a great deal in the process of preparing this photo gallery of Lignières. This document describes the techniques and tricks I've developed, and discusses challenges you may face in accomplishing a similar project yourself. Digitise the “Then” Picture The first step is to digitise the original image, which will usually involve scanning it with a flatbed scanner. Be careful to place the photo on the scanner so the edges of the picture are aligned with the vertical and horizontal. Display the image intensity histogram and adjust the white and black points to include the full intensity range of the image. Process the “Then” Image A Digression on Photo Gear

The Convertible ?Infinity? Dress: How it almost defeated me, and what you need to make one I made this thing. It’s pretty cool. It’s a convertible dress that’s basically a circle and two straps, so it’s really easy, inexpensive, and crazy versatile. I first found the instructions at a blog called rostitchery, and then I came across a second set at Cut Out + Keep. So I bought some material, spread it out in the living room, cut out my pieces, and… …stopped. I didn’t understand the next step. Turn the skirt inside out? And what’s this about making them overlap each other? There’s, like, a band of fabric involved? What? I figured I was just being thick. So I folded up my circle and my straps and I put it all back in the bag it came in. And I went upstairs to watch TV. A couple of hours later, some of the concepts had settled in a bit, and I thought I might finally be able to make some sense of things if I stopped worrying about the words and tried to put the dress together the way it seemed like it should go. I was wearing my new dress after about half an hour. Even me. Good luck!

Go Make Something & Punched Paint Chip Cards I love playing with paint chips. I did a previous article using paint chips that were stamped with black ink. This time around, I’m punching them with some of the many flower punches I have, because if I’m going to pay a bazillion dollars for a punch, I probably don’t have any money leftover to buy fun papers! Here’s how I made the cards shown above and below: I started with one of the large Behr paint chips from Home Depot. They’re large enough to make a nice-sized card front. I removed the print from the card using a white Staedtler Mars plastic eraser. Punch shapes from each colored section. Fold a piece od cardstock in half to create a card. Apply glue to the back side of the punched paint chip, and press it onto the folded cardstock, applying the edge of the chip along the fold. Trim around the unfolded sides to remove the extra cardstock. Apply dots of glue to the backs of the punched shapes, and arrange them on the card front. Here’s the result:
