Mt. Selfie

September 5, 2014

I went to Oktoberfest at Snowbird with every intention of photographing the alphorn players at the top of Hidden Peak but due to possible lightening, the peak was closed. So I went back the next day and managed to catch the gondola heading to the top of the mountain, and also spent an exorbitant amount of money on beer and oh-so-delicious German food. But I didn’t photograph the alphorn players. Instead, I noticed something very common at the top of the mountain and decided to photograph it instead: people taking selfies. I don’t know why I was so obsessed with taking pictures of people taking pictures on their phones, but I got a few snapshots. Not all of them are selfies, but for some reason, people look so distracted when taking photos on their phones. And, no, they really aren’t the best photos in the world, but I had a great time taking them.

Other than that:

A series of photos by Jeremy Harris, who photographs abandoned American mental institutions. They are sure to give you the heebie-jeebies.

Really cool work from Hengki Lee, who was recently featured in Adore Noir.

Thomas Herbrich’s monumental effort to create 20 beautiful images of smoke took him three months, more than 100,000 shots and one dead camera.
