Chasing Ice

I’m Not There ‘I’m Not There’ by Pol Úbeda Hervàs is a series of images that displays Hervàs looking at his own shadow. Though the man has been removed from the pictures and all that is left is a pair of sneakers and a dark shape. Hervàs was inspired to shoot this series as he said: ‘I don’t recognize myself any more.’ He leaves the sneakers in the images to remind the viewer that there is still a man somewhere behind the shadow. All images © Pol Úbeda Hervàs | Via: Hypenotice Real Life Tetris Voici l’excellent travail du photographe Michael Johansson qui s’inspire du célèbre jeu Tetris pour reproduire un principe de rangement géométrique dans des situations de la vie quotidienne.

Google's Photo Tours Suggest A Crowdsourced, 3-D World Map Remember how ridiculous Google Street View was the first time you heard about it? One company--an Internet company no less!--was sending cars on every road in the U.S. (and then the world) to build a seamless map of images, a first-person view of what it would look like to be almost anywhere. Of course, there are places where cars can’t go, like into St. Mark’s Basilica or through the Trevi Fountain. “We use state-of-the-art computer vision techniques to organize and position all the photos in 3-D. The result is the view of a place from the hive mind, a collective map created from our inner auteurs. On one hand, we could judge that human tendency as unoriginal. And while it’s a bit of a side note, it is worth mentioning that Google is attributing the photographer behind each and every shot, and they’re not lifting images from private collections (but your publicly shared photos are totally fair game.) As of now, the feature is clearly in its infancy. Except underwater.
