Earlier this week, 1.5 million people filled the streets of Berlin, Germany to watch a several-day performance by France’s Royal de Luxe street theatre company titled “The Berlin Reunion”. Part of the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Reunion show featured two massive marionettes, the Big Giant, a deep-sea diver, and his niece, the Little Giantess. The storyline of the performance has the two separated by a wall, thrown up by “land and sea monsters”. The Big Giant has just returned from a long and difficult – but successful – expedition to destroy the wall, and now the two are walking the streets of Berlin, seeking each other after many years apart.

Tons of pics after the jump.

This is something like what my Halloween costume is going to be. Minus the half-nakedness. And speaking of half-nakedness, much of Kristi Ropeleski’s work features models in various states of undress.

London based photographer, Dan Tobin Smith, would appear as a man who has successfully managed to avoid any and nearly all main stream publicity.  In fact, if you were to Google his name, maybe one or two actual written articles would come up and the rest would be blogs which feature his work and chat about his visual genius.  And, as your search proves unsuccessful, you might find yourself wondering why it is that a man who captures with his glass eye some of the most tangible,poignant, and visually stimulating photos would choose to remain an introverted mole; a modern day Degas, constantly developing and molding his craft.  But, the truth is, that in this case, a picture does tell a thousand words…

richter 585x397 Overpainted—not overrated.

Gerhard Richter is a well-regarded German painter—perhaps best known for Sonic Youth‘s use of one of his paintings as the cover for Daydream Nation—who has been using photographs as guide material for years. But it was only recently that he noticed the interesting effect of paint dribbled onto the photos themselves. He ran with it, and the results are impressive indeed. [ Continue Reading ]

c2 360x400 In comes the Clowns!

OK, so I’ve never been one to be afraid of clowns, but I have to admit that when I first saw Varial‘s, a Canadian Studio, clown photographs it made me step back a bit!  The image seems to pop right out of the page and if you aren’t expecting it, it almost frightens you for a second.  Or, perhaps, I’m just a scaredy cat!   [ Continue Reading ]
