Check out the Lovely and talented Christy Chaloux’s Photography and her new revamped website.
The first email to pop up in my box this morning was from the amazingly talented Mr. Letchworth. This is his awesome new site.
With a visually appealing layout for those creatives who want to know what the different functions of your camera actually do. Seriously, take the camera off auto and make the photo your own. Check more out at Living In The Stills.
the team at Swanson studio take you behind the scenes of the making of their art show!
I feel inspired!
These two have taken on a huge project. They are going to begin an archive of previously unseen and unused music/band photos. Check out their site and donate if like what they are doing!
Here at Nemo we love anyone that represents Portland well. After checking out local photographer Anthony Georgis’ new work for Levi’s “Go Forth” campaign, we’ll admit we’re pretty stoked. 30 days of road-tripping for Levi’s doesn’t sound like too bad of a gig! Check out Anthony’s photos here.
Heres some highlight shots from the HCSC Photo worksop week of adventure!
When more than one person emails me the same link in a period of 4 hours, my interest will surely be sparked and i may decided to take the time to check it out. In this instance I will lower my head and sheepishly admit, the thing that sparked my interest was the second of two short emails containing this guy’s link, that read and i quote,
“this stuff is radical. plus there are boobs. enjoy Kari.”
Now, let me tell you. That email was right. His stuff is radical and yes there are boobs.
So to quote my dear emailer,

Was just treating myself to a peruse of some of his amazing work and thought I’d post a photo (or two) of the day!
These shots are from his Istanbul series…and they are seriously breathtaking.
Our April First Friday show was a hit. Tyler Kolhoff showed his fantastic photography and the installation collaboration with Justin Gorman was incredible, as well. Special thanks go out to musical guests Guidance Counselor and Breakfast Mountain. Here is a sneak peak into Exhibit A. Come by for more…
Olivia Bee Photography has shot for Converse and has some magazine covers under her belt already, and she is only 15. (record scratches, back up, rewind) 15 FIFTEEN. Yep. Holy cow. I’m speechless.
So, I wish I had myself even a 1/8th as much together at 17 as this kid. HOLY %$((#$%&($#&%!!! Mike Bailey Gates, you are super cool. Can I meet your parents? Do they have a book on how to raise a super creative, driven, savvy kid? Do you want to come work for me?
These amazing photos are documentary images from a project called These Americans which is a collection of archival footage between 1950 and 1980.
China Design Now opened this weekend at the PAM. I was lucky to see a preview of the show last week and it was incredible. Here is a little bit about it…
China Design Now is an immersive, multi-sensory exploration of the graphic design, fashion, interior design, and architecture emerging from China today. By focusing on the creative output of three distinctive cities, China Design Now presents a rapidly changing cultural landscape that is transforming China and our collective definition of urban life.
NEMO is super excited to be a part of this event through community programming. We have a fantastic surprise for November’s First Friday show. Save the date for November 4th. Check out more here… www.chinadesignnowportland.org
Landscapes aren’t always my thing, but these are incredible…
Way better than the crazy clownmobile that parades around Portland! These Pakistanis have some style!
I received my new copy of Aperture today and was struck by a series of photographs the presented from Rob Hornstra. The series precipitated from a an article the Dutch photographer read about Russia’s super rich. Horstra traveled to the peripheral towns untouched by such proseperity and explored the limited choices most people in Russia are facing. His rich work captures tensions between past and present amongst a crumbling nationalist landscape.
You may think I’m referring to Michael Jackson and our sick obsession with watching his downfall and death, but in fact I am talking about the first moonwalk, the OG moonwalk. The NY Times has a fantastic slideshow of David Burnett’s photography of the first shuttle launch to the moon. Rather than focus on the actual launch, Burnett covers what makes it a spectacle, the spectator. He turns his lens on the people watching the launch and succeeds in capturing a piece of history as interpreted by its participants. Interestingly, this act of turning the gaze upon spectator reveals certain power dynamics of the time, such as who was allowed to gaze and how. Burnett captures only white, middle class american subject and reveals that men capture the moment on camera. His snapshot of time carry so many interesting dynamics and touching scenes evocative of the moment, but it is also important to consider what is missing in these scenes that also tell a story.
