Crazy! There’s this guy who does a Forrest Gump and crosses the USA by foot! Well, not really. But it’s still a nicely done stop-motion shortfilm from… ehrm, it seems like it comes from a major jeans brand. Never mind. It makes us get itchy feet, and that’s still a true feeling. So, in case you wanna follow in the guy’s footsteps, wearing jeans or not, click here for a Goole Map of his journey.
Wow! The Denver Post put together an amazing set of color photographs taken between 1939 and 1943 in post-depression era America. Some of the only color pictures that take a close look at the effect of the Great Depression on rural America. Color photos from times long ago are a treat anyway, but these ones are even more special. They’ve been taken from the archives of the Library of Congress, in particular from the color set of the 1930s to 1940s. Head on over to flickr to browse through them for yourself, but be warned, it’s a whopping 1,615 photos in this set alone.
Photographer Nadav Neuhaus went to the New Mexican desert to document a community of several hundred people that – in a way – revive the old times of the wild wild west. “Life off the Grid” is the title of his short video about self-supporters without water, without electricty. And without law. Unfortunately it’s only 3 minutes long. But if you wanna know more about life on the Mesa you can still check out the award-winning documentary “Off the Grid” by Jeremy and Randy Stulberg.
