Missing Persons. Every once in a while, due to the vagaries of Gmail or our own sheer incompetence (usually the latter), we lose track of the artist behind a photo that we want to publish. Fortunately, this is a rare occurance, but we still have a few lonely strays that we would like like to match up with their owners. Check out our "Anonymous" contributions and help us give the photographers the credit they deserve. Let us know if you figure one out, and if you are right, we will give you an exciting prize.

Photographer Rigs An iPhone 4 To Helium Balloons To Take HD Videos Here is a nice concept to compete with Kite Arieal Photography, Helicopter rigged cameras and very long pole photography. A bunch of curious DIYers at Los Angeles rigged an iPhone 4 to a set of helium balloons that helped it rise about 1000 feet and take 720p videos of Los Angeles. The footage is displayed below, while it is not perfect, and kinda shaky, there is also a valuable BTS. Hit the Just for some behind the scenes and my notes of the video here is the behind the scenes video that they took (probably to have some memory in case that iPhone would never be seen again). There are lots of good pointers in the BTS.

Conscientious Articles Contemporary Photographers Diane Meyer Mozilla Firefox Thomas LÉONLIGHT INCIDENT Exhibition from 6 June until 18 july 2009 Thomas Léon expresses his work, for the most part, through the video medium.

Deep Sleep Magazine - This Issue View Photo Stories > Underground. The insomniac metropolis, through tunnels, bunkers and silent spaces. HMAb — HeatherMortonArt buyer One of my favourite things about this show is that it includes so much variety. Subject matter, technique and of course style- the show is a lovely mixture. Plus, it represents photographers in very different places in their careers.

News & Reviews Installation view of Walead Beshty: Selected Bodies of Work, at Regen Projects. Photo by Brian Forrest, courtesy Regen Projects The Saturday after Walead Beshty’s exhibition Selected Bodies of Work opened at Regen Projects, the gallery experienced an electrical problem. Certain lights went down, and Beshty, who happened to be there, asked that all the lights be turned out until the problem could be fixed. So for a little while on that rainy day, visitors viewed his large, multi-colored photograms, smaller documentary photographs, and industrial sheets of folded copper, in dimness. The artist’s attempt to define the parameters of an uncontrollable situation was fitting, given that the show, on view through April 5, reads as a push and pull between competing impulses: to submit to circumstances, to be entirely transparent about process, to follow a thought through to its outer limits — all the while presenting as deliberate, informed, and professional.

Contemporary Art The self-portraits by the Japanese artist Yasumasa Morimura, Requiem for the XX Century: Twilight of the Turbulent Gods, examines an array of historical figures and political events that have been significant in shaping the 20th century. Employing his usual methodology, Morimura uses costumes, make-up and props to create unconventional and bold renderings of iconic images from history. While Morimura’s work has traditionally investigated femininity through iconic depictions of women from art history and popular culture, this body of work examines widely disseminated images of prominent masculine figures from the last century. Each protagonist or event is cast in a moment of apogee, when history is being made and visually captured. Substituting himself for ideologues, dictators or brilliant minds such as Einstein, Lenin, Che, Mao or Trotsky, Morimura reflects on his personal encounter of these images during his lifetime as well notions of masculinity embedded in politics and war.
