You’ll probably like Curtis Mann’s manipulated photos. He gives ‘em the analog business with bleach and scraping. Mann’s Blog is pretty nice too.

The Real First Class

November 28th, 2007 by Jeff | 0

The best First Class in the air is probably on Emirates planes where they offer private suites in First Class. They come fully equipped with individual storage, a coat closet, vanity desk and personal mini bar. The extra-large seat reclines to become a fully flat bed, and the 23″ wide-screen LCD screen with 600 channels of entertainment. It’s more like a train compartment with a real door you can shut.

Although it won’t be officially open to the public until 2011, you can take a sneak peak inside James Turrell’s Roden Crater in this Flickr set by San Francisco designer Heidi Pollock. Apparently getting into the giant earthwork piece, which Turrell has been working on since the 1970s, has become the hottest ticket in the artworld. Read more stories of how others have sneaked in.

Amazing portraits from South African photographer Pieter Hugo. I especially like he photos of Nigerian men and their animals in The Hyena & Other Men as well his odd family portraits in Messina/Musina. And then there’s Looking Aside. Hugo’s work will be shown at the Yossi Milo Gallery in New York soon.

The Guangdong Museum of Art in Guangzhou, China is showing an exhibition of 45 contemporary Mexican photographers. Curated by Francisco Mata and Pedro Meyer, The Gaze of 45 Mexican Photographers has 450 photos available for browsing on the website. It’s a daunting volume of great work– but just keep clicking, it gets better the more you see. You can also browse by photographer.

Melody Road

When you drive on The Melody Road, ridges in the pavement make your car play a simple tune. There are three of these roads in (where else) the Japanese areas of Hokkaido, Wakayama and Gunma.
