As the photographer Franck Bohbot, I used to go to fair when I was a child. I remember the candies, the colours, the other kids and the excitement of playing, hoping to win the biggest prize.

Franck Bohbot guides us into the fair, with wide, colourful shoots, surrealistically empty of children laughing and running around. The atmosphere is still cheerful, thanks also to the flashy colours and lights spreading in all pictures.

The importance of being colorful.

How do colors affect purchase? This is the question raised by KISSmetrics. I have to admit that in my case, as consumer, it counts, and a lot. Mostly for new products, of course. But how many new products are delivered to (on-line) shops every day? And the competition getting high, a bright color and a nice packaging can help the buyers to make the choice. Check out this infographic if you want to know more:

What Music Would Look Like If It Were a Physical Object?

Photographs by Martin Klimas

Artist Martin Klimas came up with a clever idea: he put splatters of plaint on a scrim over a speaker and played music. As the volume was turned up, the paint popped up in the air and he captured the moments in a photograph. It’s a synchronized cacophony of art and music. It also looks fantastic. Source: gizmodo

Some numbers:

AVERAGE AMOUNT OF PAINT USED PER SHOT: 6 OUNCES
TOTAL AMOUNT OF PAINT USED ON THE PROJECT: 18.5 GALLONS
FINAL NUMBER OF IMAGES PRINTED: 212
SHUTTER SPEED: 1/7,000TH OF A SECOND
NUMBER OF BLOWN SPEAKERS: 2

A little gossip: Canon even made a commercial about it!
