AUGUST INSPIRATIONS

Most of this month’s inspiration comes from art work – so get excited!

I done a lot of research this month for a project I’m working on for a class (yes even though it was summer…). One of the things that I found was this website, and they had really cool articles under the “Photography” page, featuring many interesting artists. Here are some of my favourite articles that I’ve come across:

New York in the 70s/80s: http://mymodernmet.com/new-york-street-photography-70s-80s/

Asian metropolises at night: http://mymodernmet.com/nightscape-marcus-wendt/

New York Subway: http://mymodernmet.com/willy-spiller-new-york-subway-photography/

Illustrations of what it’s like living alone: http://mymodernmet.com/living-alone-illustrations-yayao-ma-van-as/

So the next artist I’ve found this month is Jim Goldberg… This guy’s work is the definition of nostalgia. He combines photography with documentary film making and through that he creates magic.

I’ve came across a poetry journal from 1920’s while doing some intense research for my photography class. You can find work from iconic artists like Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway and Berenice Abbott. I found this so beautiful, so I thought you might enjoy this too! It blows my mind how something can survive for so long and how lucky we are to be able to access things like this that hold a piece of history.

This month I’ve came across this video of celebrities talking about the Law of Attraction and fear and it just gave me another push of motivation and belief in this concept. I wasn’t surprised when I saw Jim Carrey in this; he’s someone that I consider really successful because I remember watching his films while growing up and looking up to him. So when he was talking about visualisation, I knew there must be something to it.
