Worldwide Photowalk

June 24th, 2009 by LG Blog UK
I recently became aware of the Worldwide Photowalk, it's a brilliant idea - Photowalks are "a social photography event where photographers get together, usually in a downtown area or trendy section of town, to walk around, shoot photos, and generally have fun with other photographers" they are free to take part in and open to anyone - although, for practicality all walks are limited to a maximum of 50 people per walk. Q. How many cities and people participated in last year’s Photo Walk? A. We had: 1. 8.324 photographers register for local walks 2. 47 Countries had participating cities 3. 44 States in the...

Andy Goldsworthy

June 16th, 2009 by LG Blog UK
I've been a big fan of Andy Goldsworthy's sculpture for many years, and have recently rediscovered his brilliance. Goldsworthy is a British artist whose collaborations with nature produce uniquely personal and intense artworks. Using a seemingly endless range of natural materials—snow, ice, leaves, bark, rock, clay, stones, feathers petals, twigs—he creates outdoor sculpture that manifests a sympathetic contact with the natural world. Before they disappear, or as they disappear, Goldsworthy records his work in photographs. Goldsworthy deliberately explores the tension of working in the area where he finds his materials, and is undeterred by changes by changes in the weather which may...

May 14th, 2009 by LG Blog UK
If you're a regular reader you may have already noticed my penchant for aerial photography and this is arguably as aerial as it gets!* yes, yes, technically it's not air in space so it probably doesn't count as aerial.. The BBC have a great collection of some of the best photos taken by the Hubble telescope to date, including 'cat's eye' nebulas and the "Pillars of Creation": The Daily Mail also have some photos from Hubble and there are probably hosts of collections doing the rounds this week! - According to a friend this is all to celebrate the release of a...
