Mirimalism: Miri Berlin

There’s a great quote by Charles Mingus that goes: “Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.” In areas like graphic design, there’s a fine line between complex and just plain messy. With photography however, that line […]

Slow Life: Daniel Stoupin

A couple of my favorites include the series showing then and now photos of the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 and a terrific post highlighting changes in classic […]

Nomads Of The Sea: James Morgan

Scientists estimate that the population of planet Earth will top 9 billion by 2040 and 11 billion by 2050. Often, when I think about these type of figures, I am reminded of something Carl Sagan wrote in Pale Blue Dot: “We were hunters and foragers. The frontier was everywhere. We were bounded only by the earth, […]

Faded + Blurred Bookshelf

Since launching Faded + Blurred, we have always received emails asking about books; either titles we have featured in Spotlights or, for the past couple of years, talked about on episodes of On Taking Pictures, or just readers asking for some of our favorite recommendations.
