1/7 Silent Night. (by Amy Spanos)


Last weekend, Kendrick Brinson visited Sun City, Arizona, an age-restricted community for retirees, near Phoenix. The city was built over a ghost town, in 1960, and was the first of its kind in the U.S. Brinson, who is based in Atlanta, first visited Sun City three years ago, in advance of Sun City’s fiftieth anniversary. On this, her eighth visit, she brought her iPhone, and posted a selection of her photos to The New YorkerInstagram feed.  Click-through for a slideshow:


Mary Ellen Mark’s four year documentation of proms across America is fascinating, to say the least.

anythingphotography explains:

Over the course of four years Mark took portraits at 13 high school proms held across the country using one of only five existing 20×24 inch Polaroid Land Cameras. The results are exquisite, formal, and composed portraits illustrating a wide diversity of couples (and solos). Emo kids. The young-rich-fashionable. Survivors. Charming geeks.

The project was published in the book Prom and documented by her filmmaker husband Martin Bell as interviews on camera. Mark’s work is currently on view at New York’s Janet Borden gallery until January 19; see some of our favorite shots of kids these days below in our slideshow.

Photography by Martin Klimas

Photographer Martin Klimas was born in 1971 in Lake of Konstanz, Germany. In his pictures Klimas breaks recognizable objects so they become something else, and stops us just at the moment of transformation. The aspect of destroying is not the most important one in his work. Let’s say it is a catalyst to unleash and study this transformation. The hardest part of his work is to smash so many figurines until he finds one that truly is showing him something new. He is in that sense a sculptor, but he has only a 5000th of a second to build his sculpture.

Photographer Stephen Wilkes creates remarkable images of night and day at once by setting up his camera to take pictures of a single scene over and over for 15 hours. He then blends the images to get this time-defying effect…
