James Charles – Pop Cultured Currency
Repurposing existing objects for other uses is always cool. Repurposing them for pop culture references though is even better. James Charles has been doing just that with United States currency for the last year or so. Many more after the jump.

Awesome Minimalist Disney Posters FTW
Something about minimalist art just looks great on movie posters. Combine that with Disney movies and you get a whole new edge. You might think most of these posters are for some dark, avant-garde indie film, not a cute animated kid’s flick. Also, be sure to check out: Minimalist Posters of Cult Classics and Awesome Minimalist Book Covers FTW (image) Liverpool graphic designer Rowan Stocks-Moore designed these. The above (and others) are all available in poster form on Rowan Stocks-Moore’s Etsy account He has recently had a lot of requests for his stuff so expect to wait about 14 working days for a print, longer for United States customers.

Day view of Manhattan, New York, USA
In 2006 I shot our very first spherical aerial panorama, from which the AirPano project started, in the beautiful place of the Colorado and the San Juan rivers confluence (USA): The result was overwhelming – by looking at the large screen one had a total illusion of flying over the canyon. And so we decided to continue our experiments. The next attempt was made in 2007 above the island of Manhattan. After that incident, when hiring a helicopter I always ask: Do you have passenger headphones in the cabin? Despite of all the difficulties, this photo shoot was accomplished, delivering world's first virtual photo tour above Manhattan. There were many more flights after this one, and many like-minded people joined AirPano project in the process. In 2011 we returned to New York to once again photograph Manhattan: this time making it much better technically and artistically. New York is the most famous city of the USA, and Manhattan is the most famous part of New York.
