World's First Photo Exhibition using a Car as a Camera

World's First Photo Exhibition using a Car as a Camera

In Photography, you are welcomed to a wide range of a variety of tools to somehow increase your workflow or simply change the game. We've seen things from aerial to drones but how about street photography using a car? Volvo Cars has teamed up with Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and artist Barbara Davidson for a World's First Photo Exhibition using the on-board safety cameras of the new Volvo XC60 to create a special collection of photographs. Connecting art and safety for people to see the benefits of technology such as cameras and on-board sensors in cars. The photographs were first exhibited at Canvas Studios gallery in London’s Shoreditch this week and the exhibition will travel to other countries during 2017. Barbara Davidson is a Pulitzer Prize & Emmy Award winning photographer located in Los Angeles, CA and former staff photographer for The Los Angeles Times. You can follow her tweets @photospice and her Instagram. Video Copenhagen, Denmark. I had an amazing experience collaborating with Volvo Cars to create the worlds first ever photo exhibition using the #XC60's car safety camera. The project played out like a film production and all scenes were created for this commercial endeavor. Was really nice to work on a conceptual body of work which is vastly different from my life as a photojournalist thanks to all the crew for this amazing experience!   Over 1.2 million people die each year in road accidents around the globe. Volvo’s approach to road safety is focused on real-life traffic situations which the company has studied in detail since 1970 through its Traffic Accident Research Team. With this matchless set of real-world data Volvo’s safety engineers have set about systematically working to mitigate or eliminate potential life-threatening accidents. “We take a realistic and practical approach to safety at Volvo Cars. Our vision is to reach a point in time where no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car. We call it Vision 2020,” said Malin Ekholm, Vice President of Volvo Cars Safety Centre.

Mobile Photography: Exploring Dubai & the Burj Khalifa

Mobile photography seems to be easy task because you are using your smartphone, that you carrying everyday but it's not. Finding the right perspective, light setting, subject are all part of what goes through your mind before the shot. What if you're using a 23 megapixels smartphone, would it help? Well, that was Mikael Buck's task during his latest traveling to London, Paris and Dubai for which we are featuring today with the Burj Khalifa. The world's tallest building at 828 meters high, where Mikael explored Dubai for Sony's #NewPerspectives campaign. This photo series has been shot by Mikael Buck who is a photographer based in London, UK. We have featured his work before on ABDZ and you should definitely check out his site for more of his work.

Beautify Photography of 100-Year-Old Houses in Budapest

Beautify Photography of 100-Year-Old Houses in Budapest

Photography is all about capturing moments or subjects. It sounds easy but there's a massive difference between taking a photo and capturing the mood of the scene, or really driving the attention of the spectator to a particular part of the image that makes them think and interpret that scenery in different ways. Hlinka Zsolt has been sharing some beautiful photography collections on his website and the 100-Year-Old Houses is another series of stunning images.  The dominant element of my work is symmetry and the city, specifically Budapest. In my newest series, in the second edition of The 100-Year-Old Houses, I would like to present the beautiful form and forgotten treasures of the capital city architecture by depriving them of their original functions, unfolding them into compositions and focusing on the relationships of their seperate elements. Hlinka also adds that the design of Budapest’s architecture is a major element of his work, and he has already covered this topic in several series. The special thing about this latest series is that it was taken at the place – on the Belgrade quay - where he took the Urban Symmetry series photos, which have won several international awards. "This time, however, I focused on interior spaces instead of facades and wanted to introduce my beloved buildings in a more intimate tone." says Hlinka.  Photography For more information make sure to check out http://zsolthlinka.com/

Production Design & Photography for SGD Newsletter

Production Design & Photography for SGD Newsletter

The BTS of this feature hasn't been done in CGI, it's all production design and photography. This time around it was for SGD for which it stands for: Small Green Door and their set designs. As being a full interactive studio, they are basing their services on a few key words: "design, shoot, develop, and grow". Because of the non-use of CGI, it was definitely interesting to see the work behind and what happened to trick the results into something quite unique. Behind this work, we are looking at the team from Small Green Door who is a creative studio based in Los Angeles, California, USA. They are a small team but it doesn't mean they aren't properous; on the contrary it turned out pretty well. I would suggest to check out their site at smallgreendoor.com. This branding campaign is based on SGD's four basic creative services: design, shoot, develop, and grow. The task communicates the idea behind each category in a fresh and unique way. By using color as an initial focal point, the process began with selecting specific color palettes that could relate and communicate our four pillars. This led to the exploration of objects that could create a harmonious tonal voice.

Architecture: Seoul Brutalist Revival

Architecture: Seoul Brutalist Revival

Let's take a look at this architecture series by photographer Raphael Olivier about the booming scene of the architecture growth in Seoul, Korea. After horrific events that happened about half of a five decades ago, the city has been rebuilding their foundation and structure to offer us a world-class urban design with concrete, shapes and bold angles that made Seoul, the world's fastest developing city. Published on Behance is the work from Raphael Olivier. Raphael is a photographer based in Singapore, you should definitely check out his portfolio. It's filled with a wide range of styles of photography from portrait and case studies. Seoul, capital of South Korea, has a history of 2000 years but was heavily bombed during the Korean War (1950 - 1953) and mostly left in ruins. From the 1960's, the reconstruction of the country, led by former president Park Chung-hee, was marked by rapid economic growth and industrial development. Seoul became a major economic powerhouse and its population grew exponentially, while its urban landscape was shaped by notoriously boring public housing. However, in the past decade the city has been quickly reinventing itself as a super trendy capital and creative urban center with world-class design and architecture. One of the most noticeable trends in construction is a massive revival of brutalist-style architecture, refined with a modern twist. Whether for residential, commercial, institutional or religious buildings, the use of raw concrete, bold shapes and sharp angles is becoming predominant all around the city. Through a personal study on Neo-Brutalism, this photo essay aims to give a small glimpse onto the booming architectural scene of Seoul, one of the world's fastest developing city and Asia's rising stars.
