Linkage: BLDG BLOG

Here is a superb blog that speaks for itself.



Of particular interest among the many treasures to which BLDG has introduced me, though, is this series of long exposure photographs of crowds in St. Petersburg, Russia, by Alexey Titarenko.  Overcrowding has been on our minds a lot as of late, and the images in Titarenko's "City of Shadows" are striking in their unsettling depiction of human masses, making crowds seem utterly creepy.   As BLDG puts it, the series "has the effect of transforming these assemblies of people into demonic blurs, black masses moving through the city."
