Lomography RedScale Film: A Trial Run

The Photorealism of Alyssa Monks

Photorealism began as reaction to modern and abstract art which by the late 60s had finally broken into the mainstream. It's one of those underrated movements that to this day is still written about as some sort of novelty. I couldn't disagree more.

The Digital Children of Loretta Lux

When I first came across the photography of Loretta Lux in an issue of Aperture, I was impressed. At the time I knew nothing about Photoshop let alone digital photography, and I mistakenly assumed a few clicks of the mouse was all it took to achieve [...]

EAI 640 Digital Computing System

These awesome photographs are from a 1966 EAI catalog advertising the 640 Digital Computing System. It's not often that you see huge computer systems sitting right in the middle of what looks like a corporate courtyard.

Blommers/Schumm: Portraiture Taken to the Cleaners

I came across the Blommers/Schumm book Anita and was blown away by their work, particularly the Class of 1998 series where their mastery of microscopic detail and enormous vision are displayed to perfection.

Tom Palumbo: Paris 1962
