Pablo Delfos Photography

I found out about Pablo Delfos this morning through a great post Jonathan did on ISO50. It’s really inspiring to see a photographer still using film and traditional photo processing. Delfos’ work is all in black and white and has a Surrealist touch to it. You definitely need to check out more of his work.

greg pths photography

Loving these incredibly moody photos by greg pths. I found his work during one of my inspiration hunts on Designspiration the other day and I was really drawn to quiet sound and somber mood of his work. Give his flickr photostream a look and you’ll see what I mean.

Modus Vivendi_Sonitus

Modus Vivendi is derived from Latin for the way of living and Sonitus means sound. With the three words together, my translation goes, “The way of living through sound.” I recently displayed my work for a show called Constellation which was put on by some great friends of mine, Jim Sheppard and Liz Simpson. For this show, I decided to showcase my live band photography for the first time. I carefully selected the works that had an overarching mood and similar elements which created complimenting compositions for me to work with. Each selected work was crafted and finalized in post-production using image layering and element elimination in order to create meloncholic-minimalist pieces. One of my main goals for this project was to capture the essence of each artist in the most endearing and obscure way.

Matt Wisniewski

The surrealism present in these fascinating works by Matt Wisniewski is unprecedented. I recently found out about him through Shelby White’s awesome post on the Wanken blog. Matt is a Brooklyn based web developer with a incredible talent for manipulating photos into collage gems. I would absolutely love to get my hands on prints of the top two pieces. Matt’s style is reminiscent of the another inspiration of mine Mark Weaver, who I have posted on before, but very unique in its own respect. I would love to collaborate with him in the future! What do you say Matt?

The New Vhcle Mag

So I have big news to announce. I have recently joined the Vhcle Magazine team! I have always admired the Vhcle vision and I wasn’t going to let this opportunity pass me by. During the process of hopping on board I also brought my friend, colleague, and fellow JetstreamProjector contributor Bruce Mai.

We were given the incredible opportunity with Issue 7 to break down and reconstruct the entire magazine to give it a new and refined look. What really helped us gain a true understanding of the essence of the magazine was doing research and analyzing the past issues with a critic’s eye. Right off the bat, some of the important changes we decided to make were to establish a new grid and to update the typography of the magazine while maintaining the sophistication and independent feel of previous issues.

Another important layer we wanted to introduce was storytelling. Photos can be arranged and cropped in a strategic manner in order to tell a story and we wanted to use this as a tool to engage readers at more than just a contextual level but to bring a level of nostalgia or story discovery aspect. This is not to say that every section of the mag has blatant stories. The photos and other visual elements were arranged in a way to tell simple stories of multiple interpretations and develop a mood using the rhythm. Disregarding the cookie-cutter technique each spread is unique on its own and works in harmony with the other spreads to create a magazine that is not only viewed but experienced.

The cover and spreads featured above are from Issue 7 which was released on September 11th. As from this point forward we will be bringing nothing but progress of the magazine to you. Vhcle Magazine is only available online but with our team stronger than ever we plan to be in print very soon. This is just the tip of the iceberg of the evolution of Vhcle.

Get on over to Vhcle.com to check out the full issue and drop a line because we love feedback.
