The 16 Best Photo Essays Of 2013 One of the best things about writing for a website dedicated to art and design is you're never short of great pictures to look at. Even by that standard, though, 2013 was an embarrassment of riches when it came to fantastic photography, and Co.Design was particularly lucky to be able to play host to some of the best photo series and photographers of the year. As we head into 2014, we've chosen 16 of our favorite photo essays of the year. The photographers here explored the crumbling ruins of Tatooine, the inside of an Amazon fulfillment center, and the tunnels beneath New York City. They looked at the faces of twins, of juggalos, of plastic surgery patients, and of face-painters. Enjoy our picks for the 16 best photo galleries of 2013 in the slide show above.

The Best Films of 2013: Our Critics Choose Their Favorites - Page 1 - Movies Sherilyn Connelly 1. Spring Breakers Nothing about Harmony Korine's film should work, and shame on him for using footage from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic without giving credit, but what looks at first like a Pedobear fantasia is actually the most relentlessly inventive film of the year — and the most divisive.

The dialog is clunky and the too-pretty astronauts' back-stories are extraneous, but that doesn't detract from Alfonso Cuarón's fluid filmmaking, which veers breathlessly from agoraphobia to claustrophobia and back, all in perfect harmony with Steven Price's beautiful score. 3. Josh Johnson's documentary is an elegy for the one-dominant VHS format, a celebration of those keeping it alive in defiance of the march of progress, and an occasionally chilling rumination on the non-physical future of media. 4.

This Family Took The Same Photo Together For 22 Years And The Results Are Incredible (Photos) Being a graphic designer isn’t easy at all, but once you’ve mastered the art, the possibilities are literally endless. An awesome GIF was recently posted by Reddit user, Pqjp, showing the process of photo compositing. We often walk right past advertisements and flip right through magazines without thinking about all of the work that was put into […] If you’re looking for new ways to spend your money, you might want to put $100 toward the world’s most expensive grilled cheese sandwich. If you were to hop in a time machine and go back in time about seven years, you’d probably be watching ESPN coverage on Michael Vick being indicted for running a highly illegal dogfighting ring. When it comes to advertisements, it can be quite tedious to come up with ones that actually get your brand’s message across in the smoothest way possible. I’m not sure why anyone would want to do this, but it turns out that it makes for a pretty awesome art series.

About Dream Till Green | A Place for Big Dreams and Dreamers 312 Beauty | living pretty in the second city Meet The Real Walter White: The Meth Dealer Who Inspired The Show 'Breaking Bad' (Video) Way before Bryan Cranston embarked on what is considered by some as the greatest bit of acting of all-time, portraying meth dealer Walter White in the hit show “Breaking Bad,” a man actually named Walter White was selling the best meth in America. Walter White sold methamphetamine in Alabama from 1988 until 2012, and was notorious for having the best meth available. Despite selling a massive amount of the addictive drug, Walter White managed to maintain a low profile, until he was eventually arrested in 2008, and again in 2012, both for trafficking methamphetamine. White was initially given a $2,000,000 bail for his second arrest, but for some reason, the judge had a change of heart and lowered it to $10,000, so White could enter “The Foundry,” a faith-based methamphetamine recovery clinic.
