Photographs, words and sounds


Over the last little bit, I have come across several projects where photographers sort of “collect” a large number of photographs with a single motif – very much along the lines of my holga corner stores collection. One of those supreme collectors is David from lowrevolution whose flickr stream is a real treasure trove of collections. I love his signage stuff such as this set called high street.

Another collection I just discovered is Stefan Fürtbauer’s set on Vienna diners. I particularly like his decision to photograph them at night creating these little islands of warmth, colour and light.

[UPDATE]: Also check out this fabulous collection of drive-by portraits by Andrew Bush.
