There are times when I am very jealous of other people’s photos. This is definitely one of those times. I love Martin Stavars’ black and white images. Well done. Lets see if I can afford a print now…

Unique colourization from Mert & Marcus for Versace. Helps that Giselle is the model.

Here are some great pictures from Andrey & Lili. They are from Russia. Beyond that, I have no idea who they are. Incredible portraits, though.

I have seen a lot of Hedi Slimane photographs over the years. I wasn’t much of a fan as I feel his photographs don’t have much to them. They are often great, black and white studio shots but they seem to have no soul. But, he is quite popular with the magazines (no doubt due to his whole other life as Creative Director at Dior Homme). So I checked out his site and tried to grab a nice cross section of his work. I definitely like his location shots a lot better than his studio shots. What do you think?

Some great architectural and interior shots by Christopher Morlinghaus. How do you find these places??

I love these “photos of photos” by Laura Plageman. Her series “Response” are images of altered, enlarged prints of her own photography. Some work better than others, but very original and kind of tricky on the eyes.

I have always enjoyed objective images that have have some sort of metaphorical overtone to them. Check out J. Bennett Fitts’ "No Life Guard On Duty" series and see what I mean. Love this stuff. Also really like "Industrial Landscap[ing]."

Cindy Sherman for MACHow strange. Beyond the obvious question of WHY is Cindy Sherman doing this, is WHY would MAC do this? Do enough people even know who Cindy Sherman is? Does it matter? This whole this is just weird to me. Have a read…

Infra, a project by photographer Richard Mosse, uses colour infrared Kodak Aerochrome film (discontinued in 2009). Photographing the lush landscape of the Eastern Congo, the film turns all that is green to a pink/purple, giving the images of war a fashionable and surreal look.

Shamefully, I have just discovered Vancouver photographer Stan Douglas. How did I not know of him before? Actually I thought this print was a Jeff Wall image (no offense to either photographer). I really do like Douglas’ images, though. Especially since so many are so close to home. Now he just needs a website so I don’t have to visit annoying gallery sites.
