Five For Friday #55

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” – Henry David Thoreau We’ve talked about expanding what we cover on Faded + Blurred to include things like art, dance and literature and I’m finding, as I do the research for this new content, I really miss it. I miss being inspired […]

Joe Fig - Pollock

Inside The Painter’s Studio: Joe Fig

Very few get the privilege of seeing an artist at work. The labor-intensive struggle that ensues during the creative process can be such a private and personal activity. We are usually only given access to, what the artist hopes is, the beautiful end result; the finished piece. Artist Joe Fig has created a glimpse behind […]

Tom Carter - China

In one bold stroke you can transform today.” – Marilyn Grey Tom Carter spent two years traveling through all 33 of China’s provinces capturing beautiful photographs using just a 4-megapixel point-and-shoot.

Pictures of Magazine: Vik Muniz

Artist and photographer, Vik Muniz, has made a career out of creating amazing pieces of art from what others discard. In the documentary Waste Land, filmmakers followed Muniz from his home in New York to his native Brazil where he created large-scale portraits of “catadores” – self-designated pickers of recyclable materials in the world’s largest garbage dump, Jardim […]

In His Own Backyard: Joshua Davis

I’ve been a fan of Joshua Davis for more than a decade. Back then, he was one of several developers, like Hillman Curtis, Brendan Dawes and a few others making their mark creating amazing Flash content. Davis was more the hardcore skater than the somewhat hipster-front-man of someone like Curtis. When I first met him at Flash […]

A Compassionate Lens: Pierre Gonnord

Based in Spain, French photographer Pierre Gonnord takes a slightly different approach to his wonderful large-scale portraits. While his aesthetic borrows from old world master painters, his subjects are what really captivate the viewer. Rather than photographing impossibly attractive, overly-styled models, Gonnord photographs those who have often been otherwise forgotten by society. Wanderers, drifters, the homeless and the marginalized find […]

Alphastructaesthetitologist: Jon Contino

While many would call him a typographer, an illustrator or, simply, an artist, Jon Contino calls himself a Alphastructaesthetitologist. Don’t bother looking it up on Wikipedia, you won’t find anything. That being said, the title seems to fit Contino perfectly. His work is a mishmash of analog and digital styles and techniques that blurs the lines between illustration, […]

(Fe)Male: Casey Legler

Androgyny has long been a staple in the worlds of music and fashion. Both men and women have swapped roles, clothing and identities to great effect. One of the latest to straddle the increasingly blurry line is “art maker” and model Casey Legler, who recently landed a contract with Ford Models. But, before you go […]

The Ghost Swift: Kirsty Mitchell

Kirsty Mitchell is having a very good year. This time last year, relatively few people knew of her or her incredible photography. But, over the last several months, her work has exploded and has been seen everywhere from the BBC News, the Daily Mail and the Huffington Post to a number of books, magazines and […]
