Photography inspiration

Looking at: Yeondoo Jung’s website

Yeondoo Jung is a Korean artist who takes wonderful photos. On this page you see the series “Wonderland” where the artist takes pictures after the drawings of children – the results are great, very dreamlike and unreal. Check it out!

Looking at: Solargraphy

Take an image over several with a small pinhole camera and observe the changes to the path of the sun.. the author of this site is happy to send you a kit for taking the image and then receive it back for developing.

I wonder.. he’s a Finn living in Helsinki, maybe living that far from the equator leads to a more observant attitude towards the sun?
