Photographer Theron Humphrey adopted Maddie, a 1yo Coonhound before setting off a year-long trip to document everyday life and people in all 50 states. During the trip, Theron noticed that Maddie had the peculiar ability of unwavering patience and balance and he began to document Maddie as well. He collected his Maddie photographs on a blog he setup entitled, Maddie on Things. Little did he know that this dog would change his life and push him forward in a new direction and purpose. After completing his year long trip across the United States, he’s heading out again, this time with a new project, focusing on rescue dogs for Why We Rescue, and a book tour of the now famous Maddie on Things photographs.

Photographer Jessica Eaton’s images have a beautifully geometric feel to them and when you learn that all of the effects and color separations in the images were done in-camera, they really become amazing. Be sure to check out Jessica’s website to see more of her work and a glimpse into how some of the images were created.
The unsettling 1/2 series of portraits by Venezuelan artist & photographer Jesús González Rodríguez mashes up multiple photographs of the same person to create and image that is both profile and head on at the same time. The effect created by collaging the images together is unsettling, taking your eye a moment to really understand what it is looking at.
Oldenburg, Germany based photographer Klaus, aka Leontjew on Flickr, takes some really amazing photos that skirt the line between minimalist and pure pop. His amazing eye for finding bright geometric patterns in everyday life amazes me almost as the beauty of his shots.
Being the OCD person that I am (things are at right angles on my desk) Ursus Wehrli‘s new book, The Art of The Clean Up, is right up my alley. The book contains Ursus’ photography of everyday life reorganized as if ready to be cataloged.
Spruce branches pulled apart with the sticks and needles individually lined up by size, a parking lot full of cars organized by hue, and so on. This is one book that will definitely end up on my shelves.
You can purchase the book, Kein & Aber’s website for 16.90€ (about $25.00) but its so far only available in German.
Lakes & Reservoirs is an amazing series of photographs by Los Angeles, Californa based artist Matthew Brandt. The really cool thing about these images is the process that Matthew uses to print the images. The traditional C-Print process is augmented by using water from the lake or reservoir that image was taken at. Its this impure water introduced into the process that gives the series its signature imperfections and beautiful colors.
Dear Photograph is a really cool new tumbler. Its all images submitted by reader of what they describe as “a picture of a picture from the past in the present.” The concept of the image in an image isn’t new, but I glad to see a blog dedicated to it. Check it out for yourself, there’s not much content right now, but I’m guessing it will be chock full in a few days!
In the amazing Bronson Caves series by photographer Brice Bischoff, Brice uses large pieces of colored paper to create ghosted images that range from bold and vibrant to subtle and washed out. The caves, located in Los Angeles, are famous for their use in the movie industry but are rarely the focus of the shoot.
