Beer: A Genuine Collection of Cans

I already have an ever-expanding collection of coffee table books (I’ve always wanted to make one myself someday) but here’s yet another one that I love: Beer (A Genuine Collection of Cans) by Dan Becker and Lance Wilson. The two came upon Becker’s stepfather’s extensive antique beer can collection in his basement in the midwest (the cans dated back as far as 1975!) and photographed all the cans to make this book. I love the idea of this because I always think beer labels are so interesting!

America in Color from 1939-1943

Check out some of these pics from this site that my friend just sent me. The photos were taken by Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information photographers, and they are some of the only photographs that captured the effect of the Depression in rural or small towns. All photographs are now property of the Library of Congress.

Blow-Up

Michelangelo Antonioni’s “Blow-Up” is one of my favorite films. It is Antonioni’s first English-language film, and is in the style of 60’s mod London. The photographer’s character is based on David Bailey, a British Swinging London photographer. The story follows the photographer’s stroll through the park and accidental involvement in a murder which he photographs there. A classic.

I came upon this project (Blow-Up in reverse) by photographer Per Zennström in collaboration with Berlin menswear label So Popular.
