Sacha Goldberger’s Joggers

Cre­ative and inter­est­ing project by pho­tog­ra­phy Sacha Goldberger.

Last sum­mer, Sacha Gold­berger decided he would take on a very inter­est­ing project. He assem­bled a team who helped him cre­ate an out­side stu­dio at Bois de Boulogne, a park located near Paris that’s 2.5 times the size of New York’s Cen­tral Park. He stopped jog­gers, ask­ing them for a favor — would they sprint for him and then pose right after for his cam­era? Many obliged. Out of breath, these jog­gers showed an over­whelm­ing amount of fatigue on their faces.

Gold­berger then asked these same peo­ple to come into his pro­fes­sional stu­dio exactly one week later. Using the same light, he asked them to pose the same way they had before.

I wanted to show the dif­fer­ence between our nat­ural and brute side ver­sus how we rep­re­sent our­selves to soci­ety,” Gold­berger tells us. “The dif­fer­ence was very surprising.”

Snow White and The Hunstman

Very inter­est­ing take on the tale. Can’t wait to see it next year based on these char­ac­ter pho­tos.1 There should be some good action and eye-candy.

Masked Beauty

Sharbat Gula's 1984 portrait by Steve McCurry for National Geographic magazine.

It all started with her being pho­tographed by Steve McCurry in 1984. Prob­a­bly one of the most famous por­trait in mod­ern times. What strikes the most are her eyes. You’re just drawn to them right away (at least I am).

I’ve been notic­ing some new por­traits that focuses on this style per se. So I fig­ured to make a list which I’ll con­stantly update as I get hypnotized.

How-to Map Photos on Flickr with Pinpoint Accuracy

It seems that I haven’t (in the time of writ­ing) added a geolo­ca­tion to one of my favorite pho­tographs, as well as Life-moments.

Breathless Balcony

Truly a “Breath­less Bal­cony.” Taken on the third day of a recent Inka Trail trek at Intipata in Peru.

Mean­while, back to the sub­ject. If we’re talk­ing about Flickr, Yahoo! comes to mind. The only thing that sucks about map­ping on Flickr is the lim­ited cov­er­age and sub­par details of Yahoo! Maps (in this case). You get results like these:
