Photos of People Standing By A TV

Old-TV-with-test-pattern--facing-right-

Not so long ago, owning a black and white TV was a status symbol. Then color TVs came along, and someone invented a tinted screen with a parabolic lens that less affluent folks could attach to their b/w sets to simulate color – it had a brown tint on the bottom for dirt, blue on the top for sky, and a bizarre flavor of red/pink in the middle where the actors’ faces usually were – and it magnified the size of the screen. This cheap fixit was often better at rendering hues than the color TVs were, as the latter often gave the actors a distinctive fuzzy green complexion anyway.

At least Spock looked good.

Porcelain Action Figures – In Action

Porcelain Martial Arts Figurines In Action

From a height of three meters, porcelain figurines are dropped on the ground, and the sound they make when they hit trips the shutter release. The result: razor-sharp images of disturbing beauty—temporary sculptures made visible to the human eye by high-speed photography technology. The porcelain statuette bursting into pieces isn’t what really captures the attention; the fascination lies in the genesis of a dynamic figure that replaces the static pose. In contrast to the inertness of the intact kitsch figurines Klimas started out with, the photographs of their destruction possess a powerfully narrative character.
