This Dark and Gripping Time-Lapse Captures San Francisco Like You've Never Seen it Before

DL Cade | Posted 02.17.2015 | Arts
DL Cade

Roiling fog, cars speeding across iconic bridges, late night cityscapes, all of these are commonplace in a city time-lapse. What makes Gotham City SF different is that all of this happens in black and white -- almost unheard of in time-lapse these days -- with an original soundtrack worthy of the next TRON movie.

Traditions - New Orleans Second Lining

On January 11, 2014 I had the pleasure of participating in a Second Line Parade, back in my home town of New Orleans, Louisiana. Though I'd seen hundreds growing up there, this was the first I've actually ever taken part in. Second Lining is an old tradition in New Orleans and considered a part of our cultural heritage.

Trespass - Exploring Centralia, PA

When I found out I would be taking a trip up to Pennsylvania to shoot a few locations, one of them that immediately popped into my mind was Centralia (not spelled Centrailia, the sign above is misspelled for some reason). For those who don't know of this place, Centralia is a borough in Columbia County, PA. which in 1962 had a population of around 1,100 and as of now has only 10 residents who refuse to leave. It has been stripped of a zip code, mail does not run, buildings and homes have been demolished and roads now lead off to nowhere. There are no stores, no schools... nothing. It is a ghost town with a few exceptions.

Over the last ten years as a photographer, it's been a beautiful pleasure to work with incredible dancers from around the world. The following images from my ongoing series Dancers in the Dark feature two extraordinarily talented couples: World famous and Redbull-sponsored BBoy, Neguin, with his enrapturing wife, Amy Secada, as well as the uniquely brilliant Leandro Silva and Janete Silva from the Silva Dance Company, both featured in Kiesza's viral Hideaway music video.

Franz Kline: The Forgotten Abstract Expressionist?

Matthew Israel | Posted 12.08.2014 | Arts

Many people remember Kline because his large-scale zoomed-in gestures resonate at both four feet and hundreds of feet away. This has led to the view that his works are just big black-on-white gestures, akin to big details of a de Kooning.

I admire Smith's impulse to expand his film-making palette and was a fan of his Red State. Tusk, however, may only be for Smith completists. It was so disheartening that I bailed a little early in order to make a screening of The Reach.

Chao Le seems to live their lives as the day comes. They rather use trading instead of money. They fish, hunt for pearls and sell their handcrafts to tourists. Like the local Thais, they have a calm, respectful way about them.

So, naturally, I kept my eyes peeled to photograph some of the amazing cropped tops, bold jackets, black and white moments and prints during SXSW.
