Strangely Compelling, Constantly Inspiring.
There is one site that I consistently go to for inspiration . No matter how stuck I may feel or how many projects may demand my attention when I visit this dark and ominous page of collected brilliance I always leave refreshed. It may not always be safe for work, that part is pretty tough to predict as the work is always changing, but in my opinion the risk is worth it for the ideas and executions there. Not lighting diagrams, no explanations, just photography…lots and lots of amazing photography.
I’m talking about StrangelyCompelling.net, the tumblr style photo blog created by Simon Engström, a professional photographer from Sweden. Not only am I a huge fan of the work on the site (which sadly I can’t even try to credit as it’s pulled from all over) but I’m always impressed by Simon’s dedication to consistently finding new content. If you need a breath of fresh air…go get it.
