Romka Magazine

I’ve written (gushed, maybe) about Romka magazine a few times in the past and it remains one of my favorite photography publications.

If you’re not familiar with Romka, here’s what you need to know: each issue asks 50-100 photographers to choose their favorite photos and write about them. What you end up with is a publication almost completely devoid of any pretense and let’s be honest, that’s pretty rare with these kinds of things. Some photos and their stories are funny, cryptic and personal or just fully heartbreaking. I’m always eager to land one of these in the mail.

You can pick up a copy at Romka’s website. More spreads below the jump!

hi friends. Back from my hiatus!

And OMG check out this incredible project by Tokyo-based photographer Ariko. Erna and Hrefna are Icelandic identical twins that Ariko began to photograph and document in 2009 (when they were nine). The project will be ongoing until they are 16.

In the background info, Ariko mentions the twins saying that they sometimes dream the same dreams. MAGICAL.

I had never heard of Susan Worsham before.

Now, after having taken the time to look through her beautiful, honest and eerily nostalgic photographs—her stories are all-encompassing.

This particular series, “Some Fox Trails in Virginia”, is meant to be a “metaphorical map, of the rediscovered paths of my childhood home.”

Rhinestone Cowboys.

ok. you guys all know I’m from Germany. We don’t have cowboys there (or at least I don’t know of any). Having lived here for quite some time, I’ve become accustomed to this facet of American culture. BUT! This is new to me—as seen on Oyster—Gay Rodeo. Photographer Mike Piscitelli offers up this photo essay. I love this so much.

And: bookmark Oystermag. Ok Bye.

Happy Friday.

Akos Major

I think it was the deafening stillness of Akos’ work that grabbed me in this week of absolute chaos in the office. It’s not hard to lapse into a place of tranquility when staring into some of these incredibly framed images. And tranquility is what this dude needs. What’s also awesome, and somewhat unique I’ve found these days, is that some of his work is available for purchase as limited edition prints – ya just gotta ask him.

I remember when I graduated design school (yes, a long time ago), we had a Portfolio review. Dutch design studio LUST created an app for the inaugural electronic version of  Items, titled Items Dutch Design Graduates 2011.

Included: 47 featured graduation projects from a dozen design schools of the area, plus opinions on the designers by some experts. Oh and there is also two essays on Dutch design education. The reader can filter by designer, school, discipline, medium, etc..

BRILLIANT. The future is here.
