Martin Usborne

“I was once left in a car at young age. I don’t know at what age or where or for how long, possibly at four years old, perhaps outside Tesco, probably for 15 minutes only. The details don’t matter. The point is that I wondered if anyone would come back.” – Martin Usborne on the inspiration for his project ‘Mute’ (a project completely comprised of dogs in cars)

“Since 2006 I have traveled throughout the southeastern United States, befriending, photographing, and interviewing a network of people who left cities and suburbs to live off the grid. Motivated by environmental concerns, religious beliefs, or predictions of economic collapse, my subjects build their homes from local materials, obtain their water from nearby springs, and hunt, gather, or grow their own food.

All the people in my photographs are working to maintain a self-sufficient lifestyle, but no one I found lives in complete isolation from the mainstream. Many of my subjects have websites that they update using laptop computers, and cell phones that they charge on car batteries or solar panels. They do not wholly reject the modern world. Instead, they step away from it and choose the parts that they want to bring with them.” -Lucas Foglia

Maurizio Anzeri

It took me all of 2 seconds to fall for these pieces by Maurizio Anzeri. So so pretty.

Sally Mann

Photos from Sally Mann’s series “Immediate Family.” As far as I know she doesn’t have a website, but I definitely recommend searching her name. (Although as fair warning to those who may be offended, there has been a lot of controversy over this series, as some consider the photos child pornography.)

Melinda Gibson

Photo Montages by Melinda Gibson. Her blog has many more, plus a collection of interesting artists and inspiration.

“I came upon twin fawns in the display case of a mom and pop toy and science store in kansas city, missouri. it took me two years to win the trust of the shop owner and save the money to buy them. a taxidermist spotted a dead deer by the side of the road. he stopped to properly dispose of the body and realized she was pregnant. he opened her and found near full-term twin fawns, he removed and preserved them.

Deer rarely have twins and the taxidermist retained the uterine gesture of their bodies. i built them a vitrine with a light blue base. their prematurity exaggerates the delicacy of an incredibly sweet thing. the points of their hooves, the length of their lashes, the spots of their hides, nose to small nose in an ur-cartoonish realism … viewers’ eyes trick them into believing the fawns are breathing. the tragedy of beauty is its transience.”
