Here is a fairly large gallery of images from found film, taken during WWII. They were developed by The Rescued Film Project. Now, normally when you see these galleries, they are images of things happening in Europe, where the fighting was taking place; pictures of destroyed street corners, blown-up equipment, etc. These, however, show what was taking place on the homefront, a perspective that can go unnoticed. That is why these images are interesting to me.
As if Dennis Hopper wasn’t already practically the epitome of the word “cool”, here is a gallery of his photographic work to enjoy. Dennis’ “counterculture cred” allowed him to get into some unique situations for a photographer. He perfectly captured images of all aspects of life – fairly straightforward street scenes, bullfighting, and lots of Hippie acitivities, but most notable are his photos of people like Andy Warhol, Ike and Tina, The Grateful Dead, etc. His work behind the lens rivals the work he did in front of it.
Someone has uploaded an incredible gallery of production stills from the film 2001: A Space Odyssey. If you’re a fan of the movie, or of Stanley Kubrick, you will love this set of photos that cover everything from the primate monolith war to the rotating space station to the inner components of HAL himself.

Louis Daguerre invented the photographic process that bore his name in the late 1830’s. Today, Dan Carillo is still using the process to make stunning images. Here is a short article that profiles Dan along with a beautiful video in which Dan talks about his creative process – but he doesn’t get very technical. It’s very cool that he is making images with this technique. It is a unique process that creates a beautiful image that will last for generations.
The always entertaining retronaut has an amazing series of photos of the daily life of Neil, Buzz and Michael. This is a very unique look into the lives of the astronauts and their families.
