12,000 NY Times Front Page In 7 Mins Timelapse

Thu July 21, 2011


From phillmv

The front page of a newspaper shows what the editor believes are the most important news items of the day. Apparently “due to an errant cron task that ran twice an hour from September 2010 to July 2011,” Phillip Mendonça-Vieira collected about 12,000 screenshots of the front page of the nytimes.com and decided to put them together into a timelapse video for our enjoyment.

Airsick Nominated For Emmy Award

Tue July 19, 2011

Created with 20,000 photographs and a haunting soundtrack, Airsick plays out like an unsettling dream. Photographer Lucas Oleniuk examines our addiction to fossil fuel – and its consequences.

In Airsick: An Industrial Devolution Toronto Star Photographer Lucas Oleniuk tackles the global issue of climate change through a local approach.

With the exception of two images, all 20,000 photographs were shot in Ontario, Canada. But they illustrate a global problem.

With a haunting original score by Randy Risling and evocative quotes, Airsick plays out like an unsettling dream.

“We’re addicted to fossil fuels and our infrastructure reflects that,” says Oleniuk. “My hope is that one day this film will be seen as the way we used to do things.”

The Shameful World of Child Brides Thru The Lens

Sun July 17, 2011


From PulitzerCenter

If you get a chance, read The Blue Notebook. It’s not a happy story and not for children, but it reveals a not-too-hidden world that still exists in our modern society. It’s an unpleasant world, one we’d rather relegate to the dusty streets of a developing country. Truth is, child brides, child prostitution and child abuse exist in all societies, including our own. Sadly, it’s happening right now somewhere in the world even as you read these lines.

Photography by Stephanie Sinclair.

Too Young to Wed by Cynthia Gorney.
