It’s worth seeing these images at larger scale here.

“Many writings on creativity stress the value of play and experimentation. Using techniques such as multiple exposure, camera movement, layering and compositing, this series improvises on the traditional landscape.

Elements of water, stone, forest and sky become counterpoints in much the same way as a jazz musician improvises on the melody. The music is transformed but the underlying chords remain recognisable.

So with Improvised Landscapes the basic patterns, textures and forms of nature are visible yet blend in a web of inter-connectedness.

As Bill Evans said, ‘It bugs me when people try to analyse jazz as a theorem. It’s not. It’s a feeling’.

I believe the same is true of photography.” – Olaf Willoughby

Ansel Adams iPad App

December 15, 2010 | 1 Comment |

The world of ebooks is maturing rapidly.

Recently an iPad App entitled Ansel Adams was released. It contains …

– 40 images (which can be viewed either with or without commentary)
– 3 videos (one includes Adams playing piano)
– 1 interview (Playboy magazine)
– letters (with other luminaries like Steiglitz, O’Keefe, Weston, and others)
– postcards (send your own virtual postcard from the app)
– weblinks
– chronology and bibliography.

The content reveals a great deal about the artist’s art and life.

This ebook/app suggests many of the kinds of content and form factors that will inevitably reshape the very nature of the book, when it is delivered electronically.

This sets the standard for the future of magazines.

Wired magazine has released its iPad edition in the Apple iStore (converted by Adobe from Flash to Apple approved Objective-C).

The June iPad edition of Wired costs $4.99.

The App is a 527MB download.

It’s intended for ages 17 and up. (Note the terms of agreement when you download it.)

Chris Anderson, editor in chief of Wired, says this is what he has always dreamed of. “It has all of the visual impact of paper, enhanced by interactive elements like video and animated graphics.” “We can offer you a history of Mars landings that lets you explore the red planet yourself. We can take you inside Trent Reznor’s recording studio and let you listen to snippets of his work in progress. And we can show you exactly how Pixar rafted each frame of its new movie, Toy Story 3.”

Wired released a video showing off the features of the new digital magazine. (View above.)(The video is encoded in Adobe Flash thus unplayable on the iPad.)

Apple Insider has more on the inside story on how Wired was impacted by Apple’s decision not to support Adobe’s Flash.

Find more on the App and it’s features on Wired.com.
