So comes another edition of Eleven’s ‘Really Great Things’ post, where usually at the last minute, I bring to you creative heads who I find pants-wettingly amazing or truly inspiring. What a grander gift on Christmas day than to share some fellow creatives amongst dashboards of regurgitated riff raff.
James Gleeson (1915-2008) was an Australian Surrealist/Abstract artist. In high school my art teacher gave me a book on Gleeson which has an amazing series of surreal landscapes and forms, which at the time was very inspiring towards my view on rendering.
Nowadays i’ve only ever come to love Street Photography. Every other style I see takes a lot of finesse and skill to impress me. I mean, really, there are a lot of average photographers out there, me included. However, when you can take photos so effortlessly and gracefully as Inès ☆.
Sir Audio 57 is a twisted style freak with some brain melting rendering skills.
Raptius Bloodington takes some amazing black and whites that are super gritty and raw as hell. Clever fella with a laid back ‘tude. Get on it.
These are only a few great shots from Helen Levitt’s (1913-2009) ‘Slideshow’, a series of colour street photos. Not only is coloured street photography hard, it can be amazingly good if pulled of as correctly as this.
