The Known Universe in One Image

By Gareth Coxon, January 17, 2016

map-1

What an undertaking this is, artist Pablo Carlos Budassi has combined satellite images and NASA Rover images to create one over all photograph of the know universe. This just illustrates the scale of the universe that we know of, which could just be the tip of the iceberg.

A fascinating project which really does show how (as far as this image goes) insignificant we are. Hats off to Pablo.

Photographer Interview 16 – Darren Newbery

By Gareth Coxon, September 2, 2010

1. How long have you been a photographer?
I’ve been a photographer for 13 years. I started out using black & white film and hand printing in the darkroom. I followed inspiration mainly from the American landscape photographer Ansel Adams.

I then moved into hand printing colour photographs and eventually into digital photography. In the last few years i’ve been working in travel & documentary photography and last year started my own Commercial & Editorial business in Exeter. (more…)

Photographer Interview 13: Belinda McCarthy

By Gareth Coxon, August 19, 2010

1. How long have you been a photographer?
Professionally, I’ve been working under my own name for about five years, but I’ve been a photographer literally since I was old enough to hold a camera, for my father was a professional photographer and also ran his own broadcasting company. So, he enlisted my ‘free help’ to work on shoots at the weekends – both still and broadcast. By the time I was ten, I could rig up an entire outside broadcast van in under ten minutes whilst moving at sixty miles an hour! (more…)

You have Beautiful Eyes: Eyescapes

By Gareth Coxon, September 18, 2008

I stumbled across a great set of photography which highlights something which most of us don’t get much of a chance to look at very closely (unless your a Optician!) and thats eyes!

Take a look at the link and I think you’ll agree there are some beautiful colours, you almost forget they are eyes at all. They almost feel like they are moving if you stare at them long enough, its great to take something and really focus on it and this set really shows that.

What do you think?
