Erik Kessels is best known for his running series of books In Almost Every Picture in which he collects found amateur photography, creating unique, and often bizarre collections, to be published in one book. His latest project. an installation on display at Foam in Amsterdam, gives visitors the opportunity to grasp the immense scale of just how many photos are shared on just one site, in this case Flickr, on a daily basis. The installation consists of rooms filled with all of the printed photos uploaded to Flickr in a 24 hour period, which translates into over one million photos. The mountain of photos, even seen in a photograph, is a great reminder of the volume of information and data that is being shared on the Internet every day.

Portraits Scratched into Walls Astonishing #StreetArt. Alexandre Farto (aka Vhils) started with the idea of turning photos into stencils. Instead of using spray paint though, he scratched portraits into walls around Moscow. via Booooom and photojojo


But really, my biggest motivation is the urge to create, not consume. And to do as much as I can, while I am still able.

ReCraft Your Photographs: Hazardous Material by Enomeks
Via Moco Loco - Drawing on his experience on the California street art and graffiti scene, enomeks has been using photography as his more recent medium. Depicting scenes in miniature, this artist tells a story of the bigger picture. Tiny workers in hazmat suits read the levels of radiation emitted from a burning cigarette, a reflection of enomeks’ concerns as a former smoker. Cheeky messages in tiny packages.—————————————————————————————————Displayed on Recraft |  Follow us on Facebook | Twitter
