After our conversation yesterday about the tension between analog and digital/fast and slow, I thought Emma and others would be interested in Bruno Ribeiro’s absurdist interpretation of Instagram.

And while we’re talking about Instagram, it’s worth mentioning, yet again, Dronestagram. And while we’re talking about drones, the theme of this year’s Le Mois de la Photo a Montreal was Drone: The Automated Image. Search the site for better yet, download the program.

They Watch the Moon, 2010“They Watch the Moon” (2010).

“Taken within the National Radio Quiet Zone, in West Virginia, where astronomers use sensitive radio telescopes to photograph distant galaxies. The site pictured here, in Sugar Grove, is widely believed to be an National Security Adminstration eavesdropping complex.” Text from the New Yorker’s website, PhotoBooth.

For those of you interested in politically-motivated, activist photography or conspiracy theories or the overlap between the two, check out the full article and more images at: The New Yorker’s Photo Booth:
