The year in photographs

1 Oct

Last weekend, I went to see the World Press Photo exhibition at Marché Bonsecours in Montreal. It was an opportunity to admire and understand via pictures the events and issues that shaped the previous year. The photographs selected by the jury were stunning! If you don’t get the chance to see the exhibition in your city, you can check out all the winning images at World Press Photo.

Also, in the same room, was another photo exhibition called AnthropoGraphia which gathered a selection of the best photo-documentaries of the world’s most prestigious agencies. You can also see the images online at AnthropoGraphia.

Roof Top Lights

5 Jan

So I was going to post something completely different today but instead I discovered Roof Top Lights by Lightboys through CollabCubed’s blog and thought I should share this. I love the idea which is reminiscent of baroque trompe-l’oeil. Quite exquisite!

ceiling light, projected photo, illuminated photo of church dome, skylight, disco ballceiling light, projected photo, illuminated photo of church dome, skylight, disco ballceiling light, projected photo, illuminated photo of church dome, skylight, disco ballThis is such a clever idea, especially ideal for the many dark New York City apartments out there. Roof Top Lights, by Lightboys, are large-format illuminated photographs mounted on an ultra-thin housing that contains LEDs. Suddenly, you not only have an overhead light, but a skylight or church dome or treetops, even a disco ball, right over your head, as well! To quote their website “These are images which not only open up rooms, but also hearts and minds…”

Lightboys also make Lightwalls and Polaboys (backlit large-scale photos with the look of a Polaroid).

Very cool, if a bit pricey.
