streetart

I got my introduction to ‘street art’, as many people did, from Banksy and his extravagant street installations of art work—however it is important to remember that he is merely one of thousands of brilliant street artists across the world.  He happened to become famous, however street art is one of the newest and most exciting forms of art around.

I think what makes street art most fascinating is that it doesn’t exist in isolation (e.g. in a picture frame hanging from the wall).  It takes the best aspects of installations and art, and inserts them into a live setting where it can interact with its own surroundings and create something contextual, yet still enlightening.  I am a fan of learning how to see things differently; street art shows an alternative version of reality in the mundane, the every day, and the structures we take for granted.

To those into street art, some of these photos may be more ‘popular’ works seen, but i found them to be nicely compiled at this page on Memolition

I really dig these fotos by Mario Pucic.  The stark minimalism, the soft colours, the framing, and the sense of space.

You’re just a spy too, as far as I know.

self portraits by Tseng Kwong Chi.

Today I had some time to kill while waiting for an annual NYS car inspection for the TT, so i walked over to a bookstore and saw a book of B&W photographs by Tseng Kwong Chi and was struck by their coolness.  These photos were taken in the 1980s and published in a series known as East Meets West.

To me, he comes across like a futuristic asian tourist-slash-government official investigator! brilliant.

how a man takes photos…

Relaxing by the side of the track!  This photo was taken by Bernard Cahier.  I don’t know who the relaxing man is sitting at the side of the track.

a week in the life (08.23.12)

As i get ready to pick up a new Camera, i’ve been shooting a lot with my Leica D-Lux 3, a fantastic point & shoot camera i’ve had for over 3 years now.  It still takes wonderful photos, and is super small.  Even after picking up my other camera this weekend (hopefully) i’m still gonna hang onto the D-Lux 3 as my pocket point & shoot.

origins of IEDEI (2004-2007)

Far before IEDEI was turned into a car blog, (then subsequently shut as that) there was a series of photographs I was putting together between 2004 and 2007 for which I was using the “IEDEI” label.  There were supposed to be 1000 of them (youthful overambition), however in the end only 15 or 20 were made.   Photography, however, is about to make its way back to me big time in the next few weeks and months—with a purchase of a very special camera!

Here are some of those “original” IEDEI photos taken between 2004 and 2007….and displayed with various iterations of the IEDEI logo—-some cool, some not so much!  Either way, they are inspiring to the future of this site and remind me of what originally started the site.

the art of size manipulation.

it’s all about perspective, isn’t it!?

This art and photography project by Skrekkogle is great, challenging the perspectives and altering our expectations of size.

fotos of the day. vintage sebring/daytona

Nigel Smuckatelli has catalogued many of his photos from the 60s and 70s on his flickr page, and in his own words: “Most of my photos were taken as a college student who volunteered as a safety official at the 24 Hours of Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring in the late 60’s and early 70’s.”

He has literally thousands of photos on his page….a good percentage of them are photos he took, although mixed in there are also stock and obtained photos…..but well worth sifting through them…so make sure you follow the link above! Here are some of his original photographs i loved:

Motorsports 2011, by Jake Yorath.

2011 was a great year in motorsports—–and I personally had an epic time at Petit Le Mans this year, following one of the most heroic wins ever at Le Mans in france.  But aside from those glorious events—–DTM racing, GT racing, and endurance racing supplied thrills and spills this year.

Jake Yorath takes wonderful photos—and these were shared by him to remember motorsports in 2011

foto of the day. A310.

to follow up the video of the day, a classic pic of an Alpine A310, giving you an idea of its overenthusiastic wheel arches and over the top body kit—-but i still love it so!  this one is from 1978, if my notes are correct.
