In Abelardo Morell‘s photography series, Camera Obscura, every crevice of the interior space is infused with the New York City. The artist created his series by photographing outdoor cityscapes from Times Square to the Brooklyn Bridge and then projecting these images, with a small lens or prism, onto the walls of rooms.
In his latest book, Things Come Apart, artist Todd McLellan exposes the inner working of 50 objects and 21,959 individual components reflecting on the permanence of vintage objects. Captured in his photography are myriad parts laid flat and organized by function, creating recontextualized images of bicycles, wagons, chainsaws, computers, and phones.

Clever way of getting his features in there
Hannah and I have been planning what we’re going to do when I visit her in probably October
and today we decided that probably the friday we’re going to dress up and either have a nice dinner in her dorm or go to this not fancy at all Italian restaurant and then go back to her room and get super drunk like classy ass adults.
we make a+ life decisions
One of the most effective ways to make an image more interesting is a simple crop. In the case of Jared Lim’s photos above, he was able to transform standard skyscrapers into fascinating geometric patterns.

The World’s Most Beautiful Museums
“In poetically well built museums, formed from the heart’s compulsions, we are consoled not by finding in them old objects that we love, but by losing all sense of Time.” - Orhan Pamuk
