I’m dying to see Waste Land, a new documentary featuring photographer Vik Muniz. Shot over three years, Muniz goes to his native brazil to visit the worlds largest garbage dump to collaborate with the local trash pickers on a massive photo project. A few friends have seen this at film festivals and strongly recommended it. Who knows, maybe i’ll get lucky and get a press copy in the mail (hint, hint, hint). Keep tabs on the movies website for release dates. Looks like a good one.
Phyllis Galembo‘s photos of witch doctors, medicine men, and shamans are creepy, beautiful, and haunting all at once.
Beautiful billboard photographs by Branislav Kropilak.
Fabien Merelle creates surreal drawings that pack a lot of punch into the delicate drawings.
When I’m in SF I always wonder who the hell works in this town. It’s not the crust punks begging for change to feed their dogs, it’s not the new age hippies hugging trees in the parks, it’s not even the bike messengers who were hip to fix gears 10 years ago when Amaze and Twist were painting up a storm. Apparently it’s the worms.
Sometimes life’s day to day bogs you down and you simply need a break from the norm. San Francisco is anything but normal…. so I thought I’d jump on the 5 freeway and head north to the land of new age hippies and dot com millionaires for a bit of fun and a lil bit of business.
