The Pop-Up Pinhole Project by Kelly Angood
As featured on... It's Nice That - "It produces very high quality, two-fingers-up to Instagram, pinhole photographs" Fast Co. Design - "It’s Angood’s perfectionism for artifice that elevates the Videre beyond mere gimmick to a nostalgic reboot, a celebration of vintage cameras, papercraft, and medium format film photography in one. It’s not designed to make photography simple; it’s designed to make photography fun."
Art and Playgrounds by Simon and Tom Bloor - Playscapes
In London recently I got the chance to meet Simon and Tom Bloor, contemporary artists/brothers whose body of work derives from play and the playground experience. You’ll want to visit their website, which features a great array of found images that inspire pieces ranging from a canal boat with a dazzle-paint inspired exterior and a mirrored interior, to gilded maquettes of mid-century play-features and half-tone prints in play themes, to a brilliant, free-form geometry painted on a boring school tarmac that has prompted the schoolchildren to create new games on its lines. I particularly appreciate that Simon and Tom’s work is deeply historically informed.
