Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Photography on Wednesday 6 November 2013

Sometimes you just need to take selfie. And sometimes you really need to get a selfie with your grandmother’s casket in the background. This shouldn’t be a real Tumblr. But I’m kind of glad it is. Can we just take moment to notice the hashtag use here? “#photoof theday”? Really?

These guys sell a roll of 22-carat gold TP for just US$1,376,900 per roll. Don’t believe me? Apparently Instagram celebrity Kelly Wearstler found a roll and […]

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in Tech on Thursday 27 June 2013

This is probably the most educated form of social media I’ve come across. It’s a sort of Instagram for medical professionals. Known as Figure 1, the app invites doctors to take pictures of ailments and fellow doctors can give feedback and suggestions on their post.

Dutch-Brazilian visual artist Rafaël Rozendaal has a Twitter feed which he updates religiously with tweets of what he eats. It’s perfectly mundane and perfectly fun.

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Photography on Friday 10 May 2013

These photos of residential houses surrounded by SWAT teams and Humvees are a little disturbing. As some of the captions state, ‘It’s not a movie’, and ‘May this nightmare end soon’.

Maria Niarchos Reader Find

By Maria Niarchos in New Photography on Friday 3 May 2013

Say hello to yet another collection of brilliantly put together Pantone porn. Instagramer, dschwen is driving the Pantone Pairings Project, one swatch at a time. The simplicity and constraints around his pairings are the real power-punches.
