Artist Jon Burgerman thinks there are too many violent film posters greeting us everywhere we go. These posters of movie and TV show characters holding weapons are all too common, and most of them show the protagonist brandishing their weapon right at the viewer.
And so, Burgerman decided to fight back using a little bit of fake blood, a sense of humor and photography. Read more…
Being “journalists” more or less restricted to “facts,” we can only look with awe and envy at New Camera News: a blog that tells the truth about the photography industry by making up witty, insider satire in the mode of The Onion (an apt comparison we owe to the folks over at DIYPhotography) Read more…
