Photography seems to be a dying art in the digital age. I have never been a photographer of any skill, but I've always appreciated the art of composing shots, and of course, the occasional accidental shot that becomes sublime. I used to love going to photography-oriented exhibits at art museums when I lived in Los Angeles.

So I thought I would start a thread dedicated to the art of photography, and invite you all to share some of your favorite images. I'll start with one from Annie Leibowitz, who made a name for herself photographing celebrities. Here is one of David Lynch and Isabella Rosellini from the 80's.

Iíve always appreciated Phillipe Halsmanís Jumpology series. In the early 50's and early 60ís, he photographed a lot of celebrities and politicians in the act of jumping. His assertion was that "when you ask a person to jump, his attention is mostly directed toward the act of jumping and the mask falls so that the real person appears." That is fascinating to me, as if to say that jumping is the real window to the soul. Here are some examples.

The Duke and Duchess of Windsor:


Richard Nixon:


Audrey Hepburn:


Dick Clark:

This isn't pure photography, since the artist does use Photoshop, but all of the elements are built from photographs.

Some examples:







And a link to his blog where he details the making of each picture (set construction, make-up, etc.).

330X magnified water bear in it's natural habitat, which is moss. they are the only known animals that can survive unprotected in space. obviously this isn't an 'artistic' photo but the title says interesting and I think it is,just because it looks so weird. it's mouth almost looks man-made

Yusouf Karsch


Robert Capa



he was mostly a war photog.  But if you can find John Steinbeck's "A russian journal" he did some amazing images of Soviet life in the 1940's.  Its a good read too!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
