I just noticed I have about five Linkoramas lingering in my queue. So I’ll take out whole bunch here.
I think I’ve spent the entirety of this week either on the phone or having a meeting or curled up in bed with a migraine. Sigh. Some weeks are like that.
Not a bad bunch of pictures, if I do say so myself.
I’m doing more long-form posting of links I care to comment on. But here’s a few I don’t have time for.
I love love love photo series like this one, in which five men photographed themselves for thirty years. It’s time-lapse photography on an epic scale, showing just how fast we age and die. WHen my daughter was born, we used to photograph her in the same place every week but unfortunately fell out of practice.
Such projects are not just artistic: I believe they have enormous scientific potential for learning how people grow and age. Given the explosion of digital photography, it’s only a matter of time before someone mines the massive public data set for scientific insight. That is, if they’re not already doing it.
This week’s linkorama is brought to you by my insanity over the last two weeks.
