Some of you may already know, but we have been developing and maintaining a little image blog/community called Buamai since late 2008. We recently did a little spring cleaning on the code and layout of the site, making for a much easier and quicker experience when searching and browsing for images. Also, be sure to check out the iPhone app if you enjoy the site. At only 99 cents, app purchases help us raise funds to continue working on the site and keeping it alive.
Word of warning, some images might not be safe for work (nsfw).
We came across a very nice Flickr group today, all dedicated to Polaroid Type 80 film. With loads of retro like imagery on here, it makes for a fun little area to browse.
Stumbled upon Esther’s work a few weeks ago and was inspired by her commitment to serve others through her creative giftings. Esther Havens is a humanitarian documentary photographer who focuses on social-awareness campaigns with non-profits around the globe, capturing stories that transcend a person’s circumstance that reveal the strength of an individual regardless of the situation in which they find themselves. Esther has traveled extensively to over 40 countries and seeks to open hearts and minds to see the third world conditions in a way that might challenge them to make a difference. Her photographs have been displayed in various exhibits across the country. She currently resides in Austin, Texas and New York City and continues to travel on assignment.
I love seeing what people’s houses look like and how people live. It shows their personality in many different ways. The Selby is a collection of peoples interiors. Worth a visit. If I had time I could spend an hour on this site… easy!
Visual Acoustics is a documentary film about the Modernist photograher, Julius Shulman. Once you have seen his images, they will be engrained in your head forever. He has a wonderful gift to be able to capture a building’s personality and setting a tone. If you have never seen this book, it is a luxury worth having.
Leslie Miles is an online curator of sorts whose mission is to not be everyone’s tenth favorite blog, but rather ten people’s favorite blog. From what I’ve seen so far I think he’s put together some gorgeous image collections that he bases around a single word. While he’s not my favorite blog I do think I put him in my top ten. :-)
