Study: iPhone Cameras Are Zapping Our Memory, But We Can Do Something About It

Study: iPhone Cameras Are Zapping Our Memory, But We Can Do Something About It

One of the biggest reasons I take pictures on the regular is a fear of forgetting, but as it turns out, all those pictures may be making my memories more likely to go fuzzy. There are so many small, delicious slices of life that I’m afraid will slip away forever or go undocumented somewhere in my head if I don’t snap a quick photo. I worry that I’ll lose perspective on the way I thought and felt during whole chunks of my past, though I suppose we’re all doomed to lose memories to some degree as we get older. What I should do about this is keep more of a written record of things, but instead I resort to the quicker method of taking photos. Thanks to smartphones with cameras and their all-too-easy to access apps like Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook, we’re all falling down a rabbit hole of constant capturing. You know when you go to a concert and everyone is holding their phone up to take a video instead of listening to the live music they paid for? Yeah, I’m pretty sure that wasn’t always normal.

I’m Kind Of Obsessed With These Vintage Street Style Photos

When photographer Joel Meyerowitz delved into his work in the ’60s and ’70s, he aimed to capture everyday life in New York City, but he also just happened to record some amazing street style that has my little vintage-loving heart doing backflips. The New Yorkers in his images wear trends that have since gone out of style and come all the way back around to cool again, and they look totally chic while doing so. You can check out the full gallery here for a little summer inspiration! Keep reading »

This Photo Series Of A Little Girl’s Friendship With Her Cat Is Beyond Precious

The photo “Kate and Cat” is a Russian photographer’s take on his six-year-old daughter’s friendship with the family cat. Andy Prokh has been taking the light-hearted photos since Kate was a baby. The cat, an impossibly friendly-looking British Shorthair named Lilu, is sometimes joined by other kitty friends in the photos, making them that much more fun to look at. Check out more of the series on Prokh’s website and get ready to smile! [Laughing Squid] [Image via Andy Prokh]

 

Kudos To This Portrait Series For Not Erasing LGBTQ Identities While Proving They’re Just Like You

Self-Evident-Truths-Project

The Self Evident Truths Project is an ambitious undertaking to photograph portraits of 10,000 people who identify as being anywhere on the LGBTQI spectrum, or anyone who isn’t “100% straight.” According to the project’s creator iO Tillett Wright, the point of the project is to “humanize a vast community” through these portraits, with the ultimate goal being to print out each portrait and display it on the National Mall in 2016, immediately preceding the next presidential election.

Is There Anything Cuter Than Metal Rockers And Their Cats?

Cats? Metalheads? What’s not to love? In the new book Metal Cats by Alexandra Crockett, metal musicians smile for the camera with their sweet pet kittehs. It’s a pairing I never thought I’d see, but now that I have, I’m head over heels for the adorable weirdness that is rockers with their felines. ”I saw a natural connection between metalheads and cats that seemed to be particularly dichotomous with the look and attitude of men in the scene,” said Crockett. Apparently, even the most hardcore among us have a sensitive side reserved just for their pets. Excuse me while I melt into a puddle. You know, a really badass one.

Photographer Creates Gorgeous Images To Document His Love Of Reading

I’ve been in such a hibernating, antisocial bookworm mode lately that I barely leave my bed except when it’s absolutely necessary. These days (at least until the weather warms up), a stack of books and a hot cup of tea is my idea of a perfect Saturday night. If you share that sentiment, then you’ll definitely appreciate the gorgeous images of Canadian photographer Joel Robison, which are fairytale-esque visual odes to two of his favorite things: books and tea. I just want to climb into that photo above, don’t you? Check out his beautiful Flickr photo set, Chapters, for more of his amazing work! [Design Taxi]
