"Eat Shit and Die" by Danielle Tunstall

The zombie phenomenon has slowly gathered steam over the last few decades, culminating in hundreds of movies, comic books, and TV shows. The fanatical zombie fanbase produces a staggering amount of content every year – fan fiction, films, web series… and photographs. “Zombies” are an ideal subject matter for the exploratory photographer: they …

Sony F5 and F55 announced

Well it looks like Sony hasn’t been asleep at the wheel after all…  truth be told they’ve continuously been releasing some pretty incredible still cameras (Alpha series) and some extremely strong contenders in the video/film business as well (FS 700, FS100 and notably the Sony F3.)

With the utmost respect and humility I wanted to share this collection of images of the devastation wreaked upon the East Coast by Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy.

Ecocide Photography – Tar Sands and Destructive Beauty

Even as I write that title, I cringe. To call the destruction of a once lush wilderness “beautiful” is to walk the line between neutrality and complicity. And to be clear, I am neither.

The Tar Sands project in Alberta has claimed 141,000 square kilometers of Alberta, Canada, and turned forest into a toxic landscape of oily ponds and scarred …
