“they’re cameras from the 50’s & 60’s that i’ve permanently converted to night lights.

i’ve removed the shutter, film transport, and as much extras plastic as possible to make it light enough to stick in a standard outlet.”

“Lee Jeffries career began as a sports photographer, capturing the beautiful game of football in Manchester. Then a chance meeting with a homeless woman living in the streets of London changed his life forever. He has since dedicated himself to capturing gripping portraits of the disenfranchised.

Shooting exclusively in black and white, Lee Jeffries’ 135+ pictures can be viewed in his Flickr Photostream. The majority are closeup portraits with incredible detail. Each photograph exudes so much raw character and depth, you find yourself studying each shot with great intensity. Below is a sample of his large collection, the Sifter strongly recommends you check out his entire set on Flickr.” – thumbpress Read the rest of this entry »

‘During the 1960s and 70s, thousands of monuments commemorating the Second World War – called ‘Spomeniks’ – were built throughout the former Yugoslavia; striking monumental sculptures, with an angular geometry echoing the shapes of flowers, crystals, and macro-views of viruses or DNA. In the 1980s the Spomeniks still attracted millions of visitors from the Eastern bloc; today they are largely neglected and unknown, their symbolism lost and unwanted. Antwerp-based photographer Jan Kempenaers travelled the Balkans photographing these eerie objects, presented in this book as a powerful typological series. The beauty and mystery of the isolated, crumbling Spomeniks informs Kempenaer’s enquiry into memory, found beauty, and whether former monuments can function as pure sculpture.’

I think this is just gorgeous…
Chris Kotsiopoulos composed this image with about 500 star-trail, 35 sun sequence and 25 landscape shots. The result is a stunning 24 hours shot which you should see in a higher resolution. If you want to know how he did you should read his post here.”

Pre-Photokina 2010: Fujifilm has announced the X100, a large-sensor compact camera aimed at professional and enthusiast photographers. Based around a 12Mp APS-C CMOS sensor, Fuji EXR processor and 23mm F2 Fujinon lens (equivalent to a 35mm semi-wideangle), the classically-styled camera features traditional analogue controls for shutter speed, aperture and exposure compensation. Of particular note is the new ‘hybrid’ viewfinder system which allows the user to switch between optical and electronic viewfinders and project detailed shooting information into the OVF. The spec is rounded off by 720p HD movie recording, a 460k dot 2.8″ LCD, flash hot shoe, and magnesium alloy top and base-plate castings. The camera will be available from early 2011.” Read the rest of this entry »

“Like an MP? Love an MPH.

Pared down to the absolute essentials, the LIKEA MPH does away with the superfluous. Hand assembled by your good self, the MPH dismisses that which is not absolutely necessary. No battery, no light meter, no mechanical shutter, no embellishment – just your eye, a lightproof box and the emulsion.”

“Holga D is a digital camera inspired from the extremely popular cult of Holga and other toy cameras of its kind.

Even though it’s a digital camera, it retains the qualities and simplicity of the original Holga camera and brings back the joy and delayed gratification associated with good old analog photography.”

Concept camera designed by Andrew Kupresanin
“Unlike a conventional camera Nadia has no display of the photographs to be taken, but rather gives the judgment of aesthetic quality to the machine, displaying only a current rating as feedback about when and what to snap.”
