Work — Logan Zillmer Photography The Preclusion of Comfort The Chase Family Untitled The Crew Why Nikola Tesla was the greatest geek who ever lived Additional notes from the author: If you want to learn more about Tesla, I highly recommend reading Tesla: Man Out of Time Also, this Badass of the week by Ben Thompson is what originally inspired me to write a comic about Tesla. Ben's also got a book out which is packed full of awesome. There's an old movie from the 80s on Netflix Instant Queue right now about Tesla: The Secret of Nikola Tesla. It's corny and full of bad acting, but it paints a fairly accurate depiction of his life. The drunk history of Tesla is quite awesome, too.

Launch trailer Interview: Extraordinary Up-Close Photos of Kenyan Wildlife by Anup Shah Acclaimed wildlife photographer Anup Shah brings us a new, timeless series of images captured in Kenya's Maasai Mara National Reserve. The black and white photographs bring us up close and personal with the wide range of animals found on the reserve—from elephants and zebras to tigers and crocodiles. Having grown up in Kenya, Shah brings a unique sensibility to this fragile world, which translate to photographs that demonstrate the unflinching power and beauty of these wild animals. Shah's new book, The Mara, contains 100 original black and white photographs. "The images tell stories of anger, death, hope, arrivals and departures," writes Natural History Museum Publishing, "and provide a startlingly fresh and rarely seen view of the cycle of life in this world famous reserve."
Emails Show How Hawaii Stiffed Arizona Secretary Of State's Birther Investigation On Monday, TPM filed a public records request for the correspondence between the Hawaii government and the Arizona Secretary of State's Office.

Sarah Small ARTIST STATEMENT: The Delirium Constructions (as a titled photographic series) was born in 2003, though its thematic content has figured in Small’s work since she began photographing at thirteen. Up-close examinations of emotional authenticity resonate throughout Small’s images as a teenager, in her life-long diaristic Polaroid-of-the-Day project, and through her past and current endeavors in fine art, fashion, advertising, and editorial photography.

Through this process, Small has amassed a body of photographs that feature amplifications of distilled affect, ranging from elation to rage to sorrow, to lust, fear, joy, anxiety, confusion, and peace. The Delirium Constructions grew from Small's experiments with layering these previously discrete experiences together into a simultaneous
MATERIAL WORLD (in progress) : Photography by David Welch Material World takes influence from the Marxist concept “Objectification”.

In case of poor geographic location or general Sunday laziness, here’s a time-lapse video showing the celestial event in its full glory. Created by amateur astrophotographer Cory Poole, a math and science teacher, the video gives a great overview of the entire eclipse from start to finish. Poole watched the event from Redding, California, which was directly in the path of the moon’s shadow, allowing him to capture the full extent of the “ring of fire.”
