Illustration, Tattoo, Photography and other things
When French illustrator Thomas Lamadieu looks up at the patches of blue sky between city buildings, he imagines fanciful characters existing in the geometric gaps formed by the neighboring buildings. Lamadieu shoots photos of those patches of sky and illustrates them for an ongoing series entitled Sky Art. Thus far he has drawn pictures on the skies over streets and enclosed courtyards in France, Germany, Belgium and Canada.
Scattered around our world, hidden in the deep jungles and rugged outback places, are hidden a few native tribes that have not ventured forth into modern times. These fascinating cultures are quickly fading away as modern man encroaches into their territory and changes their lives and beliefs forever. Jimmy Nelson has traveled the globe with his camera in hand to document these tribes before they vanish from our planet. His photographs capture them dressed in their colorful celebration outfits, prepared for the hunt, and dressed for war. His book “Before They Fade Away” chronicles their lifestyles, cultures, art, and tradition in a attempt to preserve their memories before our society washes it away. via indulgd
