No, these photos are not processed with an Instagram filter and characters are not involved in a historical re-enactment.
Pictures were taken between 1909 and 1915 by the Russian photographer (and chemist) Sergey Mikhaylovich Prokudin-Gorsky to document the country’s lifestyle for educational purposes.
Prokudin-Gorsky used an experimental technique with color-sensitive glass plates, collecting over two thousand pictures that remained forgotten until 1948, when were purchased by the United Staes Library of Congress, which from year 2000 oversaw the digital restoration.4 hearts
The events of these apocryphal sagas are rural migrations, airplane disasters, shipwrecks, from which all the pain was sucked away, leaving on the ground the museum of a rebuilt memory, that flits on the Sacred Island of the northern polar helmet, floating in the subtle planes of the fourth dimension.
The poems of the ancestors, that were the guiding stars of rough Scandinavian sons in search for light in ancient Iceland, are repeating transfigured in total stasis, such as creative primordial acts of souls who grow Chaos, producing Cosmos.4 hearts
A short selection of recent gorgeous remixes:
I’m late on Parra for Cuva, just followed recently. He manage to have slight flavours of gospel in his tracks. Much appreciated this elegant Jonas Woehl interpretation.
Downtempo version by Clara Moto of a great Samaris ballad. Could listen in repeat for hours with this in background.
What a special mixture. Is it only me or should Jon Hopkins have a featuring on all of his tunes? Here some feat. with Purity Ring.
Sun Glitters is just pure summer, plus he makes me discover new artists with his remix choices.4 hearts
UK photographer Rebecca Bathory and the love for abandoned buildings.
Unseen to ordinary people who pass their boarded windows and fenced walls, the no trespass signs refrain society from seeing the hidden world behind closed doors. These locations are imbued with a wealth of meaning and wonder and a history of their own. There is considerable aesthetic beauty in things decayed and the objects that remain, but will soon disappear forever.4 hearts
The scene is presented in isometric view and based on optical illusions and changes of perspective.
Visually, the color palette and the architecture of scenarios creates a peculiar aesthetic, which contribute to maintain a high level of ludic fruition.
Narration provides many references to sacred geometry and epic tones, having the rare merit to create poetic interludes between game actions.
Also enjoy the inspiring behind the scenes above.5 hearts
Do you like modern drones and love to see your action cam or DSLR flying here and there across the sky? You should be grateful to people like George R. Lawrence.
This genius, creator of projects such as the world’s largest camera and giant tripods, devoted to aerial photography and used a train of multiple kites to lift his panoramic cameras up.
He took spectacular photos, some of which are of great historical value as the aerial view of the city of San Francisco just six weeks after the terrible earthquake of 1906.
I suggest this link if you want to know more of his techniques.4 hearts
