Great collection online here. Via MeFi.
Here’s a great 3-page photo gallery of the Star Trek: The Next Generation cast palling around on set. I love set photos.
Fred Lebain took photos of NYC locations, then blew them up and went back a year later, aligning each print to its location. I love these.
Reminds me of see-thru screen photos, a neat phenomenon on Flickr. Click each pic to see that photographer’s Flickr account.

Barack Obama has a photostream on Flickr. Every day a handful of new photos go up, courtesy the White House photographers. Lots of these pics are of the “People in Suits Sit at a Table” vein you’d expect- not exactly scintillating photojournalism- but some of them are pure gold. For example, recently the son of a White House employee wondered aloud whether Obama’s haircut felt like his own haircut. In the name of science, the POTUS allowed for some exploratory palpitation:
Adorable. Thanks to Reub (link goes to a funny essay he wrote, which is worth a read) for the tip.
Wicked little animated movie by Takeuchi Taijin, made by photographing stop-motion animation, then laying out the photos and photographing them, too. Supa coo.
In some ways this reminds me of Muto by BLU– I like how the characters define the world as they pass through it, and the clever use of space and geometry.
One rainy night eight years ago, in Watertown, Massachusetts, a man was taking his dog for a walk. On the curb, in front of a neighbor’s house, he spotted a pile of trash: old mattresses, cardboard boxes, a few broken lamps. Amidst the garbage he caught sight of a battered suitcase. He bent down, turned the case on its side and popped the clasps.
He was surprised to discover that the suitcase was full of black-and-white photographs. He was even more astonished by their subject matter: devastated buildings, twisted girders, broken bridges — snapshots from an annihilated city. He quickly closed the case and made his way back home.
At the kitchen table, he looked through the photographs again and confirmed what he had suspected. He was looking at something he had never seen before: the effects of the first use of the Atomic bomb. The man was looking at Hiroshima.
