Pulp Art Book

I have been exploring flickr a lot more these days and I'm having a bunch of "what the fuck, this is amazing" moments. I stumbled across Neil Krugs flickr and his stuff is just wow. These photos are from him & Joni Harbeck's Pulp Art Book. I am in love with each and every one of them.

View them all here, & his flickr is here. Prepare to be wowed.

Also look here to see some dreamy/magical photos. I really like the dreamy and magical effects because I think it creates an unspoken and visual story.

I remember in photography class my teacher said in order to become a better photographer you should look at a lot of photos and see which styles you like the best. You should borrow and re create your own version of what you appreciate.

“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to.”
- Jim Jarmusch
