Foundphotos The Selvedge Yard The Wonderful World of 2D and 3D Fractal Geometry Fractals are shapes that can be split into several parts and every part is a reduced size of the whole. They usually have fine structures at arbitrarily small scales, being too irregular to be described in traditional Euclidean geometric language. Fractals have an infinite complexity and it’s almost impossible to reproduce such a complicated image. In the last decade fractals gained a lot of popularity, especially that now they can be generated with special software or created in other digital manners. For the ones who don’t own such software or haven’t learned how to use it yet, know that fractals can be quite easily found in nature too, and artistically expressed through photography. The following article presents 50 amazing fractal art pictures, expressed on 3 levels: 2D digital manipulations, 3D images and photography of natural fractals.

Found photography Found photography is a genre of photography and/or visual art based on the recovery (and possible exhibition) of lost, unclaimed, or discarded photographs. It is related to vernacular photography, but differs in the fact that the "presenter" or exhibitor of the photographs did not "shoot" the photograph itself, does not know anything about the photographer, and generally does not know anything about the subject(s) of the photographs. Found photos are generally acquired at flea markets, thrift and other secondhand stores, yard sales, estate and tage sales, in dumpsters and trash cans, between the pages of books, or literally just "found" anywhere. Looking at found photography[edit] Much of the appeal of found photography is the mystery regarding the original photographer or subject matter. History of found photography[edit] Found photography actually falls underneath the umbrella of found art, which has its origins with Marcel Duchamp and his readymades in the 1910s.

La concrétisation d'un rêve À l'approche du célèbre festival Burning Man 2014 qui se déroule chaque année dans le désert du Nevada, le voyageur photographe saute sur l'occasion et achète un ticket d'entrée avant même de savoir comment financer son billet d'avion.

观复文化基金会官方网站 Photos trouvées Photos trouvées Les collections de photographies en tout genre fleurissent de toutes parts en ligne. Les collections des grandes institutions y côtoient les plus improbables. Ainsi peut-on dénicher avec un peu de chance des ensembles auxquels il aurait été impossible d'accéder avant l'Internet. Comment dès lors regarder ces photographies, produites pour être accompagnées d'un commentaire, d'une légende écrite ou orale, ou tout au moins d'un ensemble permettant d'identifier, de comprendre, de leur donner du sens. Ces ensembles relèvent de la culture photographique plus que de la photographie elle-même, et plus particulièrement de la culture du photographe amateur imprégné de ses propres codes et de son propre réseau de significations. Pour en savoir plus sur l'auteur de cette rubrique : Chronique par Guillaume Ertaud Flowers Frozen In Ice Cubes Look Like Watercolors Photographer Kenji Shibata works with the incredibly poetic media of ice cubes and vivid flowers that he freezes into them. The photographer’s visually arresting work captures the everlasting beauty of flowers stuck in time. In his latest photo series “Locked in the Ether,” Shibata actually plays with flowers’ life and time – not only does he capture the already frozen flowers, but also their first post-thaw breaths and their eventual death.
