1. Daniel Shea - Plume

Shea On Shea:
I am a photographer and teacher based in Chicago, IL. I am a founding member of Dreamboats Collective, a photography collective and agency. For print, commission and editorial inquiries please contact me directly. To help fund the second trip to photograph Plume, I am continuing this print sale.

Plume, 2009-ongoing:

Plume is a photographic exploration of Southeast Ohio and its unusually dense concentration of coal-fired power plants. It serves as a follow-up to the work I made in 2007 in Appalachia, Removing Mountains, which focused on mountaintop removal, a particularly pervasive form of coal mining. Plume follows this coal up river to Ohio, where it is being burned to generate electricity.

Plume is a work in progress. To help fund the second leg of the trip, I am continuing this print sale.

Plume was funded through a print sale fund-raising effort. I would not have been able to make this work without the generous support of the following people: Zachary Allen, Caitlin Arnold, Alis Atwell, Jake Berry, Ramsey Beyer, Toby Blyth, Timothy Briner, Erin Chrest, Matthew Cox, Chris DiPietro, Sahadeva Hammari, Peter Hoffman, Ben Horns, Cesar Llacuna, Kurt Mars, Shawn May, David Schalliol, Bryan Schutmaat, Brian and Martina Shea, Patrick Sheehan, Christopher Simpson, Martial Soucaze-Guillous, George Slade, Rafael Soldi, Mel Trittin, Katherine Zeltner, Jin Zhu. Thank you!

4. Dido Fontana

Born in Italy in the early 70s Dido Fontana grew up surrounded by his dad’s camera and art works, doing himself art with different media, readying the big giants, lifting weights and looking at every kind of imagery. In this way in his mind increased an extraordinary heterogenic plethora of images you now can find in his photos which represent not only a figure and where there’s no message but a world. His soul is baroque and his eye is damned and voyeuristic but his style is raw and sexual, fashion and anti-fashion at the same time. But first of all it is direct and pure, without alternations or embellishments.

5. Old Spice I Flex

More insane, awesome Old Spice work from Wieden + Kennedy. This time, we get a bodybuilder who punches, kicks, blocks and generally destroys odor—and everything else in his path—in the service of Odor Blocker Body Wash. This guy's on something, and it's not a horse. Plus, he has these crazy talking abdominals. Two more ads after the jump.
