comedie humaine: greg gorman
"Greg Gorman's work documents that peculiar obsession of the 20th century celebrity. [...] Each shot gives a picture of human nature in its infinite range."
slick site for LA based photographer Greg Gorman. it's a shame, though, that the portfolio section is restricted to potential and current clients.
scott haefner's kite aerial photography
"I’ve been interested in photography for as long as I can remember, and kite aerial photography (KAP) seemed like a natural progression. At least it did after my friend [...] convinced me that it isn’t completely ridiculous to suspend an $800 camera from a kite."
...and just as i'm settling for the quicktime VR of bellinzona from the previous post, i stumbled across a great collection of 360 degree panorama of my very own town, lugano.
this certainly brings back nostalgic memories! more great immersive environments over at VRWAY Communication . stunning quality and detail there...
panoramas.dk is a great collection of high quality, full-screen Quicktime VR immersive panoramas, curated by danish photographer hans nyberg.
i was particularly pleased to find a link to bellinzona's world heritage medieval castle, taking me back to my time in tessin (italian speaking part of switzerland).
a soldier in an army of citizen journalists
As journalists, I hope we are drawn to war because we believe in a power

are simply abandoned in sad exhaustion.
david leeson's photographic account of the war in iraq. stunning images with a bitter-sweet quality. more over at in the shadow of a gun.
