The haunting and breathtaking work of Federica Erra. Her unique perspectives with people and use of color tell stories through the quietness of her photos.

I recently found out about Jimmy Turrell’s work through Jon’s on ISO50. His collage style is beautifully orchestrated by use of photography and illustration. Jimmy’s style is very unique and if you stop by his website you will most likely find yourself looking at everything he has created.

I was tapped into the wonderful work from the master found-footage manipulator Jamie Harley late last year with his work with Memoryhouse and recently included a video he made for their new “For the Years” EP. Jamie simply searches for perfect visual counterpoint to the songs he loves. He does this by deconstructing old films and remolding them to harmonize with contemporary indie music.
I really held myself back from including all of his videos in this post. This video for local Sacramento band Ganglians really brings the visual elements up to par with their stellar music. If you haven’t heard of this band I don’t know a better way than this to be introduced with this remarkable video for “Bradley.” The altered minimal color palette produces a cold feel of the film which, in its beautiful imperfection, projects the music and visuals in a harmoniously. Makes you forget that the film and music were originally separate entities. It is absolutely lovely that almost every frame/scene could be a stopped in any moment in time to create a photographic gem. Now let it soak in your vision and dissolve in your memory.

I’m really excited to announce the early release of Tycho’s new album “Dive.” CD, vinyl, and direct download available over at the to ISO50 Shop. So far, I’ve ran through the album three or four times and I can’t get enough. This new music from Tycho has been long awaited and has far from disappointed. Looks like I’ll have my music set for my autumn/winter design sessions.
Visit ISO50 for more info.
I am also super excited for “The Years” EP by Memoryhouse which was just released late last month. The video above is a full stream of the EP with new and unreleased visuals by Jamie Harley. Jamie does a wonderful job capturing the emotion and feel of the music in the visuals with the dreamy, washed out, and psychedelic imagery. I’m really anxious for the full length LP now.

Here is splendid ad for Gant Rugger. I found out about video by doing a little digging on the work of art director Albin Holmqvist who is also the man behind the amazing typography of the EF – Live the Language videos. Holmqvist really did a great job at creating the typography to complement the subject matter in a nostalgic manner. It really has that old fashioned feel which was achieved by the vintage filmography and type style and most importantly the fashion.
Perhaps by paying attention to this quick tutorial, the viewer may adopt a few pointers on how to gain an impeccable sense of style.
