Out My Window

Out My Window

Living in a big city has its advantages on transportation, being close to needed resources but it has its disadvantages as well. The feeling of isolation in your little space must be challenging too. Being so close to your next-door-neighbor, how often would take a look  Out the Window? See what's going on around you, taking a peek into somebody's life and space. Is it invading their privacy? Trying to know what's going to satisfy your optimistic desire. We are taking a look at the work of Gail Albert Halaban. The title of this photographic project, “Out My Window”, refers to what neighbors see through their neighbors’ windows in the cities of the world. The windows are fragile borders between the familiar and the unknown, between the rushing noises of the city and the timeless quiet of private lives. Set within the context of rising city populations and a global construction boom, the photographs present a portrait of how strangers live amongst strangers and the challenges of creating communities, relationships, and areas of privacy.     The urban experience became the focus of my work, a way to share my realization that even alone, we need never be lonely. The process of making the photographs connects neighbor to neighbor, creating community against the loneliness and overpowering scale of the city. With the evolution of imaging and communications technology, the project has a renewed energy as I expand from my New York home to the cities of the world. About Gail Albert Halaban Gail is a photographer based in New York, USA. She's pretty known for her large scale photographs of women, urban and especially voyeuristic landscapes.

Tokyo Nights: A Different World

Tokyo Nights: A Different World

Around 6 months ago, I spent 2 weeks in Japan with family and close friends. I can seriously talk for days how much I loved my experience and how it affected my daily life now. I would say through all my traveling, my favourite city was Tokyo. With all its glory, there was also its darkness and dark corners but the whole city totally safe but it was part of the atmosphere. I am totally digging Liam Wong series about Tokyo. From the colours, the tones and it almost feel like a painting. About Liam Wong Liam is a Game Graphic Design Director over at Ubisoft currently based in Montreal, Canada. We forward to see more from Liam and his work.

Traveling & Minimal Photography

On Social Media, we all somehow have our own conceptions of the Reality World. Through the photo and editing apps, we go from dark, bright and of course Minimal Photography. Minimal Photography might sound like an easy thing to do but it isn't. It's all about a concept, it's not something you can do spontaneously. In my opinion. Taking the time to find the right angle/perspective is a challenge. How do you see your reality? Let's take a closer look at the work from Matthias Heiderich who totally takes incredible photographs. Architecture, places, and scenes captured in the cities of Tokyo, Seoul, Berlin, Leipzig, Lisbon, Milano, Rome.     About Matthias Heiderich Matthias is a self-taught photographer currently living in Berlin, Germany. Really looking forward to what's coming for Matthias. For more information: http://www.matthias-heiderich.de.

Drone Photography with Dirk Dallas

Drone Photography with Dirk Dallas

I feel we are still in the state of novelty while talking about  Drone Photography. Why? There's isn't that much of it out there yet, I might be wrong but this is my thought. I also a great fan of those who pushes the limits of this tool/hardware to capture different angles and perspective rarely seeing before. It's a totally different vision and we can't help to be inspired by it. We would love to share this might be our first feature on Drone Photography and let's take a look at Dirk Dallas's perspective of the World. I have been shooting at eye-level for years. I needed a new challenge. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); About Dirk Dallas Dirk is a designer, photographer and educator living in Southern California, USA.

San Francisco in the 1940s

San Francisco in the 1940s

There's always an interesting part of looking at pictures from the past. Many factors come to mind about how people were dressed, how they lived in their routine and also the technology around them. This is why I was particularly intrigued by looking through the lenses of Fred Lyon and the city of San Francisco. I personally love this city with its mountain of high streets and what I enjoyed the most about this collection is that Fred has a style of Photography that is quite endearing that makes you feel part of the picture. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); About Fred Lyon Being called the "San Francisco"s Brassai", the Photographer Fred Lyon all started back in the 1940s where his work has been published in LIFE, VOGUE and beyond.

Neon Project, colorful and beautiful photos by Hid Saib

Neon Project, colorful and beautiful photos by Hid Saib

I was browsing some inspiration online when some very interesting and colorful images caught my eyes. The images I'm talking about are part of the Neon Project, a series of pictures by Brazilian photographer and publicist Hid Saib. I loved his compositions and the way he uses the colors on his subjects. The photos are delicate while also super strong and intriguing. Hid's images are truly inspiring and beautiful. Take your time checking out the ones we selected to show here and make sure to head to Neon Project's website to know more. Enjoy! Sensuality and daring has everything to do with art. For years, many artists have used and abused these attributes, small works even in the great monuments. Now imagine tie it all together with the colors, brightness and neon magic. It was precisely the result of the Neon Project, produced by the Brazilian photographer and publicist, Hid Saib. Since 2013, a great work of great impact is reverberating in national and international media. Welcome to the world of neon Hid Saib.

30 Photographers you should Follow on Instagram (Like Now)

As of lately, I decided to step up a notch with my enthusiasm for photography. Not only to snap a picture for snapping but having an idea/concept in your head and trying to figure it out with research and how you would take the shot and etc. To express what you have in mind within the best way possible through the medium of Photography and sharing them. One of my favourite platforms for sharing is Instagram, it's easy to use and you can create a story of every single one of your posts.

NYC Under the Ground

NYC Under the Ground

New York City, a city that always has fascinated me. I always question myself about how can so many people (according to Google: 8.406 million in 2013) can co-lived together in the city with so many possibilities and stories. One thing they do share, it's the subway transportation. 34 Lines and serving thousand of people each day. One photographer decided to take a journey in the underground of NYC. Let's follow Joao Unzer. The subway, on the other hand, is one of the few places in town where social boundaries are dissolved. It's where all races, religions and social classes meet and share not only the same space, but also the same situation. The NYC Under the Ground project seeks to portray this sort of equality and democracy that the NYC subway proposes. It captures true spontaneous moments in the everyday lives of real New Yorkers (the kind you don't see in magazines) in the only place in town where hot dog and stock vendors share the same bench.

100 Year Old Houses

100 Year Old Houses

We posted about Zsolt Hlinka work before on a series of images titled Urban Symmetry but he seems to be always producing incredible work. This time we want to share his latest project titled 100 YEAR OLD HOUSES. It's series of compositions that play with perspective, which is my favorite as you might know. Anyway, check out after the break and you will understand why it deserves to be featured here. The location of the series are hundred year old buildings of Nagykörút which are completely reinterpreted by the chosen perspective, changing our ordinary spatial perception. As the buildings are framing the sky, the contrast is getting maximized between geometric, sealed networks of architectural forms and the unsubstantial, infinite space of the sky. Looking at the accurately constructed, central photographs it feels like the buildings are tunnels driving to the infinity of the sky - and this is where time appears, as if the floors leading to infinity represents time and the age of the buildings. Zsolt Hlinka is a photographer and fine artist with focus on architecture. For more information check out http://zsolthlinka.com/

IN EXTREMIS: Bodies with No Regret

IN EXTREMIS: Bodies with No Regret

It's Friday and we would love to end this week with fun (it made me laugh) project on Abduzeedo. It's entitled:  IN EXTREMIS series by Sandro Giordano and it's basically short stories in a photograph about a person's world falling down. With no chance to save themselves, this is such a creative direction and series that is worth to watch and follow. We live in a distorted world of plastic surgery, which perpetuates stereotyped images that feed a preset marketing model. I believe that perfection is in imperfection. It is in strong contrasts, in frailty, and in the humanity that makes each individual different from the rest. I hide the face of my characters in order for their BODY to speak for them. This fall is the point of no return. There’s a saying “you must hit rock bottom to start over”. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); About Sandro Giordano Before Sandro is devoting his whole time to IN EXTREMIS series, he was originally from Rome, Italy. He graduated from the "Istituto per la Cinematografia e la Televisione Roberto Rossellini" in Set Design. Follow his Instagram for more of his IN EXTREMIS series.

Constructed Series by Pawel Nolbert

Constructed Series by Pawel Nolbert

On Abduzeedo, we love Pawel Nolbert's work. We've featured his series and work many times and again he doesn't cease to inspire us all over again. For this  Constructed series, Pawel create his own reality while being on travel and as I quote: "We construct our reality in our own way. We do that everyday on our Instagrams, blogs and other carefully curated outlets. Knowing that the world around us doesn't look like this, we somehow want to believe that all those often extremely filtered and post-processed images in our IG stream are actually the real thing." I do agree with what he's saying, we'll leave it to you and be the judge of your own World. Series of photos on the topic of perception of reality an the creation of subjective, distorted reality on social media. I took my travel photos and just like we all do before posting it, I messed around with them a bit... trying to create my perfect version of reality...

Cherry Blossoms Series with Kenichi Ueno

In Japan, Spring Time is the time for the Cherry Blossoms. As I started to see many people sharing their pictures and experiences in my feed. It must be just an exhilarating experience to witness.

Silent Night series of the streets of Tokyo

Silent Night series of the streets of Tokyo

With Spring coming into our calendar, those who live or will be travelling the islands of Japan; you'll find yourself immerge in the beauty of Sakura trees. It's the season! Unlike freelance photographer Takashi, he decided to explore another aspect of Japan and it's their streets especially in Tokyo. Not the streets shining with billboards with neons but the eerie, dark and Japanese horror-like ones. Let's follow Takashi on his  Slient Night Series. I went to Naka-Meguro, where there is a river with sakura trees lined up on the side. It looks nice at night with the illumination being done. I got bored when I saw it. Ok, bad habit of mine is that I get bored easily. Sure, sakura at night is pretty, but I wasn’t interested at that moment for some reason. I ended up exploring the alleys around Naka-Meguro. I found something different... (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); About Takashi Takashi is a freelance photographer currently based in Tokyo, Japan.
