In the early morning of July 1st 1908 in Siberia, there was a great explosion. Eyewitnesses close to the explosion reported the loud thundering sound moving east to north. The sounds were accompanied by a shock-wave that knocked people to the ground and broke windows hundreds of miles away. The explosion knocked over an estimated 80 million trees over 830 square miles. Estimates of the energy of the blast to be about 1000 times as powerful as the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. It is estimated that the earthquake from the blast would have measured 5.0 on the Richter scale, which was not yet developed at the time. Since there was no discernible impact zone, meteor impact was ruled out, theories for the cause range from black holes, anti-matter, to a UFO crash. Today the more popular theory is whether it was a comet or meteor, it exploded 8 or 9 km over the earth’s surface, from immense built up pressure from traveling over 21,000mph into our atmosphere. Later in 1966 Guiness book of world records calculated that if it were to hit earth 4 hours and 47 min later it would have completly destroyed St. Petersburg, Russia! They say the earth gets these mid-sized hits once every 300 years or so. 100 down 200 more to go!

I grabbed the Canon G9 and headed to Brooklyn Projects opening and launch of the Nemo produced book FREESTYLIN’. Nike SB’s, John Martin asked Nemo creative director Mark Lewman if he could do anything for BMX what would he do. Lewman brought the old band together from the Freestylin’ days and put together an amazing historical outline of the pioneering days of freestyle BMX. Spike Jones and Andy Jenkins collaborated in their original roles and put together the book.

BMX racing will debut in China at the Olympics next month and Nike SB has been doing promotions to bring focus to the new event. Michael Lau designed special limited edition Blazers for the promotion and if you were at the party in LA the he also design two special edition toys and a show box that is so unique and original!

Could this be a marketers dream come true?

Install secret (or branded) messages into flash photos. Aparently Julius von Bismarck has McGivered a remote optical slave through a telephoto lens to project a message onto any surface. From the reaction of the people on the video it is a real deal. It isn’t rocket science and he shows you how to do it on his website.

Do you think it is real or staged?

At the Le Book Connections event, I met and spoke with tons of agencies about their photographers. I really feel that overall, the agencies approaches to the event were pretty boring. Very few stood out in a see of books. Don’t get me wrong, I saw some incredible talent represented, but no one seemed to break the mold for their photographers. The one agency that actually caught my eye was Julian Richards. I think their photographers are interesting and I like the slightly irreverent way the agency came across. Here are some photos from their website, work by Chris Buck, Nick Meek and Lovely Perkin.

 

Check out this article with Julian Richards and you’ll see that the personality behind the talent is just as interesting…
