Due to the pandemic, all concerts, plays, and other events have moved online. But Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona streamed quite an unusual concert last week. On 22 June, UceLi Quartet played a concert for a hall full of plants. Yes, you read that well. 2,292 of plants filled the seats and quietly listened to the performance, and we bring you some fantastic photos that captured this extraordinary event.
I’m not even 18 years old and I’m so far away from my parents. It’s the first time that I’ve gone this far. I’m two-thousand kilometres away from home, in Barcelona. I’m wandering the streets with a couple of friends, unable to concentrate on them and our conversation because I’m completely enchanted by everything I see. It feels like this huge, beautiful city is hugging me, while I smile at everyone and everything: people, buildings, trees, and cars. Everything looks so much better than it does back home. Everything seems idyllic, seems just right.
I have recently acquired my first digital camera. And when I manage to snap out of the delirium, I take photos of pretty much everything – because everything seems worth capturing, everything seems freakin’ amazing!
A year after being sued for allegedly copying its Air Jordan logo, Nike is now under fire for its latest shoes campaign starring FC Barcelona’s Neymar.
While one could usually think it might be a coincidence or argue the point of inspiration vs. imitation, it turns out both artists’ videos were referenced in Nike’s creative brief before the video was even created.
Now that he has completed the project and released a book containing high-altitude aerial night-time photos from 10 iconic cities, Leo Laporte of The New Screen Savers interviewed Vince about his experiences up in the sky.
Other than discussing some of the technical aspects of the shoots, Vince also discusses why these photos will never be captured again.
Think of the least time you sat on a public bench. Did you have lunch with a friend? Were you on a date? Did you have a seat to catch your breath after a run through the park?
Whatever it was, I bet you didn’t stop to wonder what happened on that bench 24 hours before you where there or what experience the person sitting there after you will be going through.
It’s amazing how many moments and experiences, as small and unimportant as they may be, take place in areas like public benches. Just as captivating is how unaware of it all most of us are.
For over a year now Hungarian freelance photographer Gábor Erdélyi has been following one of these modest hotspots, in an attempt to capture the bustling, vibrant and constantly changing city of Barcelona.
After sharing Roy Two Thousand’s Burning Man timelapse a couple weeks ago, I decided that I could probably cut back on my timelapse addiction for a while. After all, it would be pretty hard to top the slick camerawork of R2K. At least that’s what I thought at the time. Then I happened to come across this beauty, Into The Night, which was created by Barcelona based photographer/cinematographer, Jordi de Temple and explores both, Barcelona and California. Jordi throws in some low lying clouds, a little milky way action, sweet motion blurs, some fun tilt shift scenes, multiple holy grails for good measure, and some profoundly gorgeous and cinematic wipe transitions. Even the musical arrangement was spot on.
I know I said I was trying to avoid relapsing back into a timelapse hole, but…Wow. I would have felt guilty had I not shared this one with you all. Enjoy!
Photographer Alexandr Kravtsov did one amazing job capturing the beauty of Barcelona. But not without blood sweat and a broken camera.
We have talked Hyper lapses before, but this video really takes it to the extreme making Barcelona look nothing but amazing.
Now, as with most other timelapses, sit back, go to full screen and push that volume dial all the way to the top. Now, hit the jump.[Read More…]
