Collages of Birds in Unbelievable Formations

Shaun Kardinal

Shaun Kardinal

I love these collages of found images by Seattle artist Shaun Kardinal. They remind me of M.C. Escher; however, Kardinal’s pieces are made of images taken from Google searches and friends’ Facebook and Instagram feeds. Another aspect of the work that stands out is their mode of display.

Eerie Photos of Feral Parrots in Tokyo

“Parrots should not be in Tokyo,” writes photographer Yoshinori Mizutani of the hundreds of green parakeets that have nested in the city’s trees. He’s right: the birds are not native to Japan. They arrived in the 1960s and 1970s as part of the country’s trend toward purchasing exotic species as pets. The rose-ringed parakeets were brought in from their natural habitats in India and Sri Lanka, and when their owners found them too loud and unsuitable for domestic life, they simply let the creatures loose in the city to fend for themselves. Some of the birds were lost or broke free during importation.

Incredible Moments of Tenderness Found In the Struggling Mill Towns of Pittsburgh

When photographer Dan Wetmore set out to capture the neighborhoods surrounding the abandoned steel mills of Pittsburgh, he was met at times with incredulity as some believe the area to be little more than an industrial wasteland. As a child living in Pittsburgh, Wetmore was drawn to the abandoned steel mills that remained from the city’s industrial growth in the early to mid-20th century, pouring over Becher monographs in search of photographs of furnaces and structures that spoke to his boyhood enchantment. As an adult, Wetmore ventured into the mill towns for his series Jubilee Kitchen I and II, unveiling moments of unexpected rebirth in the struggling neighborhoods shadowed by its industrial history.

Photo du Jour: Miles the Pig

When photographer Mark Peckmezian was commissioned by New York Magazine to do a documentary on the contemporary art market, he never imagined meeting the sassy and fabulous Miles the pig. During the ten-day shoot, Peckmezian spent an evening at the gallerist David Zwirner‘s home. The party was full of collectors and artists alike for the painter Oscar Murillo’s latest show set to open the next day. In the midst of the hubbub, Peckmezian spotted Miles, the pet pig of Zwirner’s daughter and a big hit with the elite crowd present. Miles strikes such a pose it makes you wonder if he’s used to all the attention.

Beautifully poised and gentle, staring into the soulful eyes of these Iberian greyhounds you’d never guess they were ever abused, unwanted or abandoned. Greyhounds are a popular breed of hunting dogs in Southern Europe, especially Spain. At the end of hunting season, if they underperform or are no longer needed, despite their kind spirit, many of the dogs suffer horribly at the hand of their master. French photographer Mathias de Lattre, who grew up with greyhounds, felt compelled to tell their story in his series titled Salvados, meaning ‘saved’ in Spanish.
