the underwater project · alex tipple

“Australian photographer Alex Tipple regularly gets beaten in the head with his 5kg underwater camera but with shots like this one, it’s definitely worth it. He captures split second, stunning images of swimmers and surfers emerging underwater just off the Australian coast.

The 29 year-old captures the precise moment a wave breaks and surfers are drawn under, resulting in images of stunning clarity with an interesting twist on abstract photography. Tipple decided to shoot these kind of images after becoming frustrated with “normal” surf photography.” (




greenpeace design awards 2009

Posted on | April 15, 2009 | No Comments

“In recognition of the strong role visual communication has played in Greenpeace actions we have established the Greenpeace Design Awards. The aim is to motivate the global creative community to develop visually striking artwork that encourages the public to support Greenpeace and take action on critical environmental issues.

The brief is to design a poster that delivers the message ‘Be a Part of the Action’ – this does not necessarily have to be expressed in words. The poster could bear witness to catastrophic environmental damage and in doing so, cause outrage. Alternatively the poster could actively encourage peaceful protest to expose an environmental problem.

Registration and submission may be conducted between 1 March 2009 and 15 June 2009.”

pin-up horses

Posted on | April 13, 2009 | 1 Comment

quite interesting and fun idea the photographer julian wolkenstein executed. he took horses, gave them hair extensions and shot them like pin-up girls. doing one image a day this was a pretty intense shoot he says and it almost took 3/4 of a day to get the horses hair done – poor stylist.

think he has some other interesting shots in his portfolio but this feels unique, it’s something new i haven’t seen before. and, the horses look pretty hot i think.
