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.

Go to sleep and think

This can explain why even if I desperately would like to sleep, I can’t allow myself to switch off my brain and calmly lay down to bed.

When you lay down to go to sleep at night you are suddenly shutting out most of that incoming data, which means your brain finally has time to make sense of everything going on.
This explains why sleep is so valuable to creative thinkers: taking a break from everything else allows your brain to do what it does best: think.
Science!
It’s also important to note that because your brain is utterly creative before sleep that having a notebook nearby is a good idea.

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

Photographs by Martin Klimas

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

If you want to see more (amazing) pictures form Martin Klimas, visit the New York Times website.

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

Vote for the photographer

How many pictures of candidates have you seen recently? Some of them are celebrative. Others obscure. Others even funny. Pictures are an important element of each political campaign, because Image is. This “making of” the Polka shooting of all French candidates has something extraordinary. Here we see politicians disarmed (in front of camera) and who is actually commanding? The photographer.  If I’ll have to vote for someone, then, it will be for the photographer!
