So many people get caught up in the fact that "you don't have to register the copyrights to your work because it's copyrighted the moment you create it."

A Photographer's Quest to Document America's Vanishing Roadside Rest Stops

Ryann Ford | Posted 02.08.2015 | Arts
Ryann Ford

For the past five years, I've driven all over the country documenting America's rest stops. With drive-thrus and gas stations at nearly every exit, rest areas are losing the fight and are vanishing in nearly every state. Shortly after moving to Texas from California seven years ago, I was struck by a recurring sight - the humble rest stop. The more of these roadside parks I saw, the more inspired I became - there were tables shaded by faux oil rigs, teepees and wagon wheels, and geometric shapes echoing classic mid-century design.

The Importance Of Polaroid - Why I Still Love To Shoot With Instant Film

Emily Soto | Posted 01.07.2015 | Arts
Emily Soto

My fashion photography is grounded in art. I love the old, painterly feel that a Polaroid gives and the excitement of seeing how it will turn out, and never really knowing. Polaroid film is old, and often that makes it imperfect and each frame is unique - I love that. I also love the instantaneous nature of seeing something coming to life on print.
