I love this still from the movie "Royal Tenenbaums": Richie Tenenbaum (Luke Wilson) has a meltdown at a tennis match, takes off both his shoes and one sock and sits down. He loses the match against Ghandi.
So far this series has mostly featured “real” people – but let’s make an exception. First because this scene and the movie are just great, second this photo hangs framed in my apartment (which inspired me to use it here).
Every year, just a few weeks before summer, I dedicate a series of photos to the joy of living outdoors in this good season. One of the most common pleasures is taking one's socks and shoes off to feel the first warm rays of sun on our pale feet, which were prisoners inside shoes throughout the long winter season. So, it's time to take off your socks and shoes and relax barefoot! Where? Of course, on the walls surrounding the beautiful lake! Take a look!

Before he became a professional photographer, Cor Jaring loaded and unloaded ships. On his off-hours, he photographed fellow Dutch laborers. When he left the docks to pursue photography, he still sought the underdogs and created little cinemas of the marginal life—all the way in Japan.
Not long after Alex Timmermans purchased his first digital camera at the turn of the century, he quickly realized the trappings of digital photography couldn't fulfill his personal photographic desires. He then began searching for a more challenging process — one that wasn't so predictable. His journey eventually landed him back at the roots of analogue photography, specifically employing the wet plate collodion process using original Petzval lenses. This antique photographic process found in him a renewed inspiration and has since become his passion, which is evident in both his words and his images.
Even great photographers need help in making their prints as brilliant as their artistic vision. In this video, Robin Bell talks about developing and printing the pictures of David Bailey and Terence Donovan the old-fashioned way.
Joel Byron is a long time fan of Lomography who uses analog methods at his video and film production agency, BigPlus. Back in 2010, he painstakingly put together the Lomography Caterpillar Matrix video which made over 60,000 hits. This time around, he captures video footage of London with the New Petzval Lens, delivering stunning results.
These photographs, recently digitized through the efforts of the Cushing Center at the Yale School of Medicine, come from the collection of patient photography of Harvey Cushing, M.D., the father of neurosurgery.
