Gratuitous Photo: Steve McQueen

1

Steve McQueen is one of my favorite actors, The Great Escape is a movie I never get tired of watching and there are plenty of great photographs of him – reasons enough for a gratuitous article.

The King of Cool

So where to read more about him and see plenty of photographs? Pretty much any article on The Selvedge Yard (where I took this photo from), one of our favorite blogs out there: be it Hollywood’s Anti-Hero & True Son of Liberty, Bullitt – The Grandaddy of Car Chase Scenes or 12 Hours of Sebring Race – Steve Mcqueen's Brush With Victory. Also check out this book by William Claxton, one of Steve McQueen’s close friends.

    Janne Parviainen: Light Magician

    Janne Parviainen is a 35-year-old artist from Helsinki, Finland. He is both a painter and a photographer but sometimes, he swaps his painting tools for light and creates illuminated pieces of art. Abandoned places are his favorite places for shoots because, according to him, "there's so much lived life and stories in abandoned places, they are the lost diaries and photos turned to dust of lives that once bloomed."

    Glastonbury As Seen Through the New Petzval 85 Lens by Taio Konishi

    The Glastonbury Festival is arguably one of the most anticipated and renowned music festivals in the world. It is a joy to be able to watch it, and a privilege to capture scenes on and off stage. Apart from creating beautiful portraits, the Petzval Lens is great for adding an albeit subtle drama to the already spectacular scenes of music festivals. Japanese photographer Taio Konishi photographed this year's Glastonbury with a Petzval 85mm Lens, and here are some of the photos. He also talks about his Petzval-meets-Glastonbury experience in this exclusive.

    A Sunday on Pfaueninsel ("Peacock Island")

    The Pfaueninsel ("Peacock Island"), also known as "Pearl in the Havel sea," is a world cultural heritage and popular destination for Berliners. Loose peacocks, water buffalos and the magical character of the island were also a reason for me to go and spend one Sunday afternoon there, with my LC-A+ and the LomoChrome Purple film.
