Can’t believe this is the first time I’ve ever done this. I posted this on the wrong blog. It was intended for you nonetheless!

Obviously what stuck out for me, about Binh Danh's work is that he is using chlorophyll to produce prints…on leaves! Chlorophyll! Leaves! But I’ve been working my way through a lot of the projects on his site and many of them are quite compelling. I encourage a flip through!

Today’s Flickr Friday features the work of a one BryanKonietzko AKA half of the brains behind the animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender and the upcoming, The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra. 
I love his photos because they’re all so real. They aren’t overly processed. (It actually doesn’t appear they’re processed at all, for the most part.) As with all great photographers, he masterfully controls the light and focus to make the photograph interesting, rather than needing to force some interest into a sub-par shot using Photoshop or other editing tools.

I love these “Puppets from Pamplona" photos taken by Maite Hernandez. Motion, color, story. They make me wish I was there enjoying the fun. Maite’s portfolio is quite impressive. She shoots with a sociological eye. I love that.

Photographer Judy Gelles has a lot of interesting work on her website, but I found the 4th Grade series most compelling. 
Taken at two different schools in Philadelphia, one in China and one in India, the photographs show the backs of the children and include a brief “blurb” about the respective child’s life. Gelles writes on her site:
Fourth grade is a turning point for children, a place where the pathways of their lives are shaped. One can learn about a culture by tapping into the mind of a 9 year old child.

My flickr friday photog this week is Cinco_Mom. I’ve been following her flickr stream for quite awhile and enjoy it for several reasons:
1.) She shoots a lot and doesn’t seem to always go for the *perfect* shot. It’s clear that photography is a hobby she loves not a means for her to assert her cool photographer persona.
2.) Her photos rarely, if ever, seem to be staged. She’s a mother of five and a lot of her photographs are images from her life. She seems to understand that a photo of a captured, real moment can tell more of an authentic story than a staged photograph ever can.
3.) She never over produces. Whatever she’s doing in post is minimal and her pictures seem to always come out great.
I hope you enjoy taking a look around her sets. See you next week. Happy weekend.

I love Ronen Goldman's Surrealistic Pillow Project for two reasons - 1.) I’m a sucker for photographs that include objects “floating” in space and 2.) I’ve seen some weird shit in my own dreams so I can entirely understand why someone would want to explore those things in their preferred artistic medium.

The Atlantic offers a host of photographs (taken by various photogs) of the eruption of Chile’s Puyehue Volcano. Proving yet again that weather/natural disaster are often the most gorgeous of subjects.
