Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #210

Start your week off right:

  1. Do you know the difference between cheap and expensive coffee? Dillon Edwards of Parlor Coffee tries various coffees and has to guess which one is more expensive.

  2. Harold Feinstein is another of great photographer that I didnt know before stumbling on this piece. I love the portrait of the girl at the very bottom of the page.

  3. Jason Silva delivers short ideas in an almost frantic and possessed manner that I cant help but watch. He tackles the question of creative block and impostor syndrome in his latest video.

  4. Mustafa Çankaya works at the Atatürk Airport in Istanbul, Turkey and capture portraits of people waiting for their flight. His goal is to take a portrait of someone from every country.

  5. Mia Collis stumbled on the oldest photo studio in Kenya about ready to close after being open for 37 years. She decided to take over the lease and photographed people wearing their Sunday best on their way to church.

  6. “Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is nonexistent.” – Jim Jarmusch

  7. Leah Kennedy’s series, Progress, feels almost dystopian with the brightly colored buildings in sharp contrast to the stark yellow sand.

  8. Dave Rollans sat down with one of my favorite skateboard photographers, Ray Barbee, to talk about his life and work.

  9. Marcie Hancock uses her camera to share the life around her in Appalachia. The picture of the chicken crossing the road cracks me up.
