Ghosts.

Pretty amazing images of ghosts. Captured using new graphic techniques, these images are part of the 12:31 project. The story goes in 1993 a convicted murderer was executed, his body was given to science, segmented and photographed for medical research. In 2011 this project aims to put his body back together.

Check out the 12:31 project website for more information. And to see how they captured these images: http://www.project1231.com

nick brandt. photography

Some really fantastic photography. I think these images are so striking and graphic, they really make you stop and look. The images of elephants that he has taken are amazing. The black and white images are very graphic to look at, the main focus point is the animal, each one almost posing for the camera. The composition of each photo is so well crafted you almost forget just how long it must have taken Nick to get the shots he wanted. A really dark, graphic and stunningly well produced set of images.

J.R is the 2011 TED prize winner

J.R is the 2011 winner of the TED prize.

Having seen and posted about his work before I can see why J.R is the 2011 TED prize winner. He is an anonymous photographer and artist from Paris, and much like Banksy his work is filled with meaning. His work features the faces and life of local people in small villages and neighbourhoods across the world. He then posts these photographs very large scale around these villages, on their buildings and transport systems.

Being a Guerrilla artist he remains under the radar of the authorities. A lot of his art and designs are posted in places where the local people do not have access to art galleries. Bringing creativity and art to their neighbourhood. I would love to see some of his work closer to home, in and around Birmingham!

Check out the video and a talk with J.R on the TED web site hereĀ http://blog.ted.com/2010/10/20/meet-jr/
