Photowalking with Miss Aniela in San Francisco

The smothering, by Miss Aniela

For a long time now I’ve been a big fan of the photographic work of Natalie Dybisz, better known on the internet as, Miss Aniela (pronounced ‘Ann-yella’). She’s a fine-art photographer based in South East UK, who originally received a lot of notoriety on Flickr for her self-portraitrs. She took multiple shots of herself in the same space and then combined them. Since then she’s primarily stayed in the self-portrait genre, but has expanded her work quite a bit.

I just read on her blog that she’s coming to Seattle (Jan 31st), San Francisco (Feb 2rd & 3rd), and Los Angeles (Feb 4th), and she’s inviting all who want to come, to a studio shoot and some photowalks. She’s posted her full schedule, here. Although I’m not normally one for group photography, I’m going to try and make one of the photowalks here in San Francisco. It would be great to get the opportunity to meet her.

If you live in the Bay Area, and you’re into photography, you should try to make it out. Maybe I’ll even see you there.

If you’d like to know what other photographers I like, I have a long list over at my photoblog.

Homer Every Day

This is another one of those things that I totally forgot to blog about when I first saw it. In this episode of the Simpsons, they parodied a video called, Everyday, by one of my favorite photographers, Noah Kalina.

Noah took a picture of himself everyday for 6 years to make his video. It’s actually a work in progress, so he’s continued to take his daily photos. He’s now up to 9 years. Since then I’ve seen several other photographers take on projects like this. I’ve considered doing one of these myself, but I would probably lose interest after the first week.
