In 1996, Gerardo Nigenda became one of the early pioneers of the seeming oxymoron, “blind photography.” He had been working in a library for the blind in Oaxaca where they had also built an adjacent center for photography. Proximity led him to pick up a camera and what was first a game or experiment soon […]

Engineers at FliteTest have mounted a medium format Lomography camera onto a remote-controlled tricopter, finally bring all the fuzzy, light-leaky, vignetting and grain that super secret spy footage has been begging for. The “Lomo-Copter” comes equipped with another first-person-view camera mounted to the Lomo-cam’s view finder, transmitting real-time footage to the drone operator’s stylish goggles. […]

Here’s Brooke Candy aka the Marina Abramović of sexually agressive cybergoth rappers posing for Terry Richardson. First spotted in the mainstream via Grimes’ desert freak-out, here’s Candy in the acoustic form, that is… sans some of the “ghetto gothic” opulence and glitter, stripped down — still strappin’ the warrior alien princess suit, sometimes. Richardson brought her down to Earth a bit. And the […]

Also, boobs. The NSFW vines can be easily located and so, yesterday, the app slapped itself with an NC-17 rating, oooooh. And so, ANIMAL is proud […]

Damn. PetaPixel found one that looks like Leonardo DiCaprio — complete with mad DSLR gear, laptop, Bluetooth headset, water bottle, flexible little arms for flashing a little press pass and a slick black sweater and shades for when he wants to be sexy […]

ANIMAL’s original series I Should Have Shot That! asks photographers about that one shot that got away. This week, Brendan McInerney talks about a moment in Moldovian hospice care he just couldn’t shoot.  I’m in a town called Taraclia in Moldova of the former USSR. I’m currently an English teacher. It’s alright. It pays the bills. I live in […]

We’ve all snuck photos of fellow subway commuters, but photographer Rebecca Davis went beyond your pedestrian Instagram snap. She calls her project New York Underground “an update” to Walker Evans’ Many Are Called.  Davis turned some of her work into this narrative short that plays out like a photo flip-book of interactions. Some sequences of nuances are fantastic.

Snapshots, portraits, landscapes — for about 175 years, most photographers have used the camera to depict what we can see. “But another tradition exists,” writes gallerist Jeffrey Fraenkel: a parallel history in which photographers and other artists have attempted to describe by photographic means that which is not so readily seen: thought, time, ghosts, god, […]

The latest project from New York-based Libyan photographer Jehad Nga is a huge step away in style from his well-recognized crisis and conflict photojournalism. The Green Book‘s title refers to a 24-chapter quasi-philosophical propaganda tome of the former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. The book was issued to all Libyans during his reign as “required reading… an inane […]
