Mesmerizing and gorgeous. There is beauty all around, and it just takes a true artist to highlight it. 

Flying Over LA is on view at the Benrubi Gallery in NYC and the Kopeikin Gallery in LA until August 22.

It's amazing when a video game (Grand Theft Auto V) is so detailed and well thought out that you could put together a beautiful montage just from the quiet moments in the game...

"When you’re in the right seat and in the right place at the right time, a really good photographer doesn’t miss, and I guess if you wanted to summarize why I’ve been successful -- I haven’t missed a lot when I’ve been lucky." —Neil Leifer

And of course, the photographer with his subject:

August Landmesser (1910 – presumably killed February 1944) was a worker at the Blohm + Voss shipyard in Hamburg, Germany. He appeared in a photograph refusing to perform the Nazi salute at the launch of the naval training vessel Horst Wessel on 13 June 1936. 

“He had been a Nazi Party member from 1931 to 1935, but after fathering children with a Jewish woman, he had been found guilty of “dishonoring the race” under Nazi racial laws and had come to oppose Hitler’s regime. In February 1944 he was drafted into a penal unit, the 999th Fort Infantry Battalion, where he was declared missing in action and presumably killed.”

Gorgeous photos above by Laura Glazer

PHILMONT, N.Y. (AP) — In the beginning, Phillip Patterson decided to write out every word in the Bible.

On empty pages, he wrote of Adam, an ark, locusts, loaves, fishes and the resurrection in his neat, looping cursive. Four years of work begat more than 2,400 pages and left a multitude of pens in its wake. Now, as he copies the last words of the last book, Patterson sees all that he has created.

And it is good.

Trailer for the forthcoming documentary In No Great Hurry - 13 Lessons in Life with Saul Leiter.

"When you consider many of the things people treat very seriously, then you realize they don't deserve to be treated that seriously. And many of the things people worry about are not really worth worrying about. If I didn't do anything more than my little book, wouldn't that have been enough?"

Saul Leiter could have been lauded as the great the pioneer of colour photography, but was never driven by the lure of success. Instead he preferred to drink coffee and photograph in his own way, amassing an archive of beautiful work that is now piled high in his New York apartment.
