Deep within the Grand Canyon’s vast wilderness are secret and intimate tributaries rarely visited by man, hiding some of the Canyon’s most remarkable features. The barrier to entry is steep. A group of film making canyoneers made an awesome documentary of the The Last of the Great Unknown.

Da ist einer, der sich die Sternchen des großen US-Music Biz vorgeknüpft hat! Und – mit standesgemäßem Erfolg: Der gebürtige Brite und heute im New Yorker Brooklyn ansässige Musikknipser Phil Knott hat anscheinend schon so manch‘ einen Musikstar der R’n’B- und HipHop-Szene vor seine goldenen Linse zerren können… Leicht, soulig und aufrichtig sind seine Aufnahmen… Und dennoch mit Knotts persönlichem Etikett versehen – Smoother Content!

Nach seinen Pencil Art-Kunststücken hier wieder kontemporäre Kunst des Brasilianers Federico Uribe! Uribes weltweite Ausstellungen sprechen für sich – und seine Figürchen haben sogar Personality!

From far away they look like brush strokes, but when you look closely you can see that artist Federico Uribe uses conventional shoe laces for his murals. Besides his former fantastic artworks, this one’s exposed in a very creative and unique way again.

While our friends in Europe were freezing their asses off, we managed to get some leisure time on the island of bad-taste patterned shirts and the duke of surfing. This short edit features sights such as the Volcom pipe pro and its crowd plus the beauty of the so called “country”. If you are wondering why this clip got so short, then we have to tell you that bad people like to steal laptops out of hotel rooms and let you lose tons of good looking footage. Filmed on a Canon 7D.

Explosivität und ordentlich Bewegung auf Fotos zu bringen… Das ist wohl der Blickwinkel, mit dem der New Yorker Linsenakrobat Jim Lind arbeitet und auf diese Weise seine Vielseitigkeit zum Ausdruck bringt. Ich konnte es mir nicht nehmen lassen, einige seiner besten Shots zur Schau zu stellen…

„I strongly believe that each person is made up of a collection of the stories they tell. For this reason I’ve always felt compelled to share my stories with others in the form of photography. Whether real, somewhat real, or entirely fictional, these events expose that which is truly important to me. Often the images illicit fabricated narratives that are deeply rooted from the stories I experienced as a child. My photographs are a window into the realities and fantasies that I immerse myself in every day.“

Archi-Tectonics designed the Schein Loft in Manhattan, New York:
“Wrapping itself over and along an existing renovated six-story warehouse, the GW 497 building creates a suspended glass waterfall on the edge of New York City’s SoHo district. Eleven stories in height, the structure defines itself as a reinterpretation of the city’s strict building setback regulations. A process of mathematical inflection of the glass planes was introduced to provide a system that would transform the segmented façade into a more continuous set of glass ripples, thus creating a folded vertical landscape of glass and steel.“

Wenn in der Wüste das größte Festival Kaliforniens steigt, dann tragen die Stars Hippie-Kleider, reiten auf Schultern und knutschen herum. Stil und Lebensgefühl bei Coachella sind so Woodstock! 75.000 Menschen pro Tag feiern dort in der Wüste bei nahezu 40°C einfach nur übelst ab. Das wollen sich auch Stars wie SBTRKT, Justice, Riri, Snoop Dogg oder Justice, Kendrick Lamar, Dre und EM nicht entgehen lassen. Der ganze Wahnsinn hier einmal in kleinen Kostpröbchen genüsslich zur Verfügung gestellt!

Inside his mini-mart in the desert town of Indio, store manager John Stafford is busy stockpiling caffeinated drinks. Monster and Red Bulls mostly. He knows from experience that he’ll need plenty this weekend. Tens of thousands of visitors will descend upon the desert region beginning Friday for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. „Cigarettes and energy drinks,“ Stafford said. „They need to stay awake out there.“ Amidst the deluge of live performance streams coming from the Coachella 2012 festivities, several full live shows have been unleashed. Watch one of the highlights performances!

He became obsessed with photography because of its universal ability to engage our senses and tell a story.

This amazing video OPTIMIST shot by filmmaker Devin Graham and his friends documents color-covered goings on at this year’s Holi Festival in front of the Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork, Utah. The Hindu festival of Holi has various legends attached to it. „…People light a bonfire, called Holika on the eve of Holi festival and celebrate the victory of good over evil and also the triumph of devotion to god,“ the site explains. Color, as can be seen from the video above, play a crucial role in the festivities, the site says. „Bright colours of gulal and abeer fill the air and people take turns in pouring colour water over each other.“ The video is enough to make you want to book your ticket for Salt Lake City in 2013.

Der Kerl hat sich surreale Welten zurechtfotografiert! Kollege Kevin Corrado lebt offentsichtlich in anderen Sphären als ’n guter Rest der Welt und ist in der Lage, sich aus NICHTS auf jeden Fall ’ne skurrile Szenerie aufzubauen: Groteske Motive wie Regenschirme im Wald oder abgetrennte Körperteile, die aus Bilderrahmen herausgucken, etc. Naja, alltäglich is‘ das alles nicht, was der Typ aus Connecticut in seinen Pics zusammenschnippelt, damit Menschen und Artefakte am Ende so aussehen wie sie aussehen. Traum und Surrealismus sind bei unserem Graphikstudenten und „Traum“-Künstler Corrado sicherlich näher beieinander als man denken würde!

These crazy scenes are taken by photographer Kevin Corrado. Based in Connecticut, Corrado creates these wacky images that make no sense but have an interesting and fragmented narrative. Corrado views the world in unusual ways and presents that perspective to his viewers. He says, “We are all artists who love expressing our visions.” His surreal scenes include a body broken into pieces, a beach filled with raining umbrellas, and a body with missing parts walking down the center of train tracks. The visual connection of his photography is the creative disconnect of objects.
