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.
Since when did the goth kid in school get so cool? The work of Alexander Binder.
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.
I have always been attracted to Italian Botanical Illustrations, and recently saw more of Karl Blossfeldt’s photography here and here. I really enjoy seeing people’s ‘collections’ and this would fall under art and collecting which is always a couple of steps up in my book. The backgrounds are also amazingly rich. I dare you to not to look at all of these!
