This video of Dove beauty sketches of women have been circulating the internet. But you HAVE to watch the one for men.
Anton (Hasselt, BE) is a photographer and fond of long term projects. At least, he thinks he is. His very first project: a look inside a Japanese Yakuza crime family changed his life. Or maybe it did not change it. Or maybe a just little. Or maybe a lot. In his talk he will focus on hanging in there, common sense, publishing independently, press attention, feeling lucky, and working hard. It will be About finding out what’s important. And being scared. And growing up. And making a few images along the way. Oh, and about serendipity. You know, those little moments when you suddenly realize that things are falling into place. In fact he will talk about a lot of things and show us some remarkable pictures as well.

Uncommon skateboarding tricks in super slow motion. Filmed at 1,000 frames per second with a Redlake N3 high speed camera.
Another familiar photo to remember another historical event that took place this month a few years back, but I never knew it was so wide. That’s a LOT of tanks!
Check out the video footage too! It looked like he was just passing through on his way back from a grocery store or something.
Lorena Gaillot went to NYC from France and didn’t know what a hipster was. So she set out on a hipster quest.
Holi beauty, Batman! Taken at the Hindi festival of Holi, the film was shot on a Phantom Flex- a camera that can capture up to 2570 frames a second creating super slow motion. This slow motion gives it an almost-photographic feel and really helps me pay attention to the composition and the fantastic lighting.
San Francisco’s Pier 39, with the Bay Bridge in the background.
I was reminded of this song (CD here):
I wouldn’t say I’m a super emotional personal person. I’m not good with using words to describe how I feel or what I’m thinking–pictures and music often do a better job.
