Michael Tittel: Behavior This week we are sharing work submitted to Lenscratch… It does not happen often, but every now and then I will catch someone sneaking a candid of me in public. It is the photographer in me that relates to the strides taken for the perfect image, and because of this I always pretend I cannot see them. I shake their presence off in hopes that I embodied what they needed, that in some way I managed to help them in their quest for a perfect image.

Louis Vuitton Pumpkin It was a Louis Vuitton ice cream cone earlier this week and with Halloween just around the corner, we present a Louis Vuitton pumpkin. Love the tag detail! This was posted last October on a blog called Contentinacottage, which has nothing to do with fashion but is so worthy of a visit because almost every post provides a visual delight that feels like the exact right tonic for those in need of a bit of an escape from the world of fashion. And who doesn’t sometimes? Rune Guneriussen These dream-like installations are assembled, and then photographed by Norwegian artist Rune Guneriussen. Just imagine being out for a walk in Norway’s countryside, turning a corner and discovering a magical forest of lamps, a tangle of chairs, or a river of books. Sadly, once the photograph is taken, Rune removes the installation, the only proof of it’s existence being these images… sort of like waking up from an amazing dream that you could have sworn was real. As an artist, I believe strongly that art itself should be questioning and bewildering as opposed to patronising and restricting. As opposed to the current fashion I do not want to dictate a way to the understanding of my art, but rather indicate a path to understanding a story. Rune Guneriussen’s site

Non-Candid Photographs of Strangers in Non-Place Places “Non-lieux,” or “non-place,” is a term coined by French anthropologist Marc Augé in a 1995 book titled, Non-Places: Introduction to an Anthropology of Supermodernity. It refers to places that lack history and tradition, places that people pass through, places that are solely meant for transactions, places where people are largely anonymous faces, and places that aren’t significant enough to be considered “places.” Since 2007, photographer Benoit Paillé has been going to these non-place places, talking to random strangers, and asking them to pose for a portrait. Here’s what Paillé says about his “Strangers Project”: Questioning the modern world in which we are living and trying to break this individualism and the anonymity of the big city.

Stunning Collection of Abstract Art Paintings Top Home » Illustration • Inspiration » Stunning Collection of Abstract Art Paintings Abstract art is an interesting form of art that makes use of visual language of form, color and line. These elements create an interesting work of art that stays alive with a scale of independence from visual references in the world.

Égarements by Cerise Doucède With application, precision and humour, photographer Cerise Doucède created the series ‘Égarements’ (aberration) consisting of installations which represents each of our dreams and obsession or even fears. By shaping her own visions, she reproduces her version of reality and sublimates the most ordinary moments. Objects thus come to life around one or more figures, in intimate locations, at key moments of everyday life.

Audrey in Rome — Cooltery by Pepe Jeans London By Lidia Mariotti October 24th, 2011 Only a few days are left until the in­au­gu­ra­tion in Rome of the ex­hibit ded­i­cated to Au­drey Hep­burn and the years she lived in Rome. In cel­e­bra­tion of the 50th an­niver­sary of the pre­miere of Break­fast at Tiffany’s, con­cur­ring with the Rome In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val, from 26th Oc­to­ber to 4th De­cem­ber the Museo dell’Ara Pacis will ren­der homage to this icon of our time with un­pub­lished pho­tos, videos, and per­sonal ob­jects that in some way rep­re­sent the ac­tress’ 3 lives in the eter­nal city: as an ac­tress, as a mother, and as a UNICEF col­lab­o­ra­tor.

Artist Book Series + Daily Art & Design Blog Gabriel Moreno does beautiful work with such basic materials: a pen and a brush. His illustrations begin in black and white, upon which Moreno builds, adding layers of color and images of other places and people tattooed into their skin. Flowers, birds, and faces organically expand from his subjects, as if a rush of creativity, or a dream, is escaping them.

Portraits of Strangers on the Street Taking nice portraits in a studio setting requires a great skill set and understanding of how to set up lights. Doing the same thing, but on the street with complete strangers takes the skill one step further. Benoit Paillé, Quebec based photographer, recently released images from his latest project titled, “Stranger Project” in which he breaks the norm of “not speaking or disturbing” strangers in order to create stunning portraits on the street.

The Flop Box A bad beginning makes a bad ending 4/14/2014 Peter Saul curated group show @ Zürcher Studio Austin Lee Taylor McKimens Karl Wirsum Judith Hudson Contemporary Photography I made this series with the desire to build a set of symbolic portraits inspired by my background of double cultures. I'm French with Middle Eastern origins. I worked by using the pictorial tradition of still lives. I chose to put forward characters where the nature and objects they carry come from different rites and customs. The photographs can be grouped into three metaphorical categories: Firstly the "mark", with elements of uncultivated land, evocative death and rebirth.
