There was a man that photographed everything, all the time.

Don Mueller has left this world, but his photographs remain.

Pictures of family or everyday life can become documentary insights to our culture when viewed in the right way.  

In the spirit of all things interesting, these are some of those photos.

About halfway to Christmas seems like a good time to take in these curious images of Christian youth in the 60’s.

Vintage photography, contemporary design

Vintage photographs are beautiful in their original form, although there is something special about discovering them and bringing them into a current context.

Joshua Allen Henry is a Seattle based artist, photographer, graphic artist and painter. He has a running series comprised of graphic-based, digital collages. They show exceptionally tight composition and super clean lines. His use of color keeps the work feeling modern, while recycling vintage photography creates a dynamic aesthetic.

Cactus world!
Cactimundo is a botanical garden in Los Cabos, Mexico that conserves, promotes and reproduces desert plants. Species of cacti and succulents in the garden are from the local area as well as other parts of the world. Jim Mueller visited the garden in 2006 and photographed some of his favorites. The color and form of the desert flora make for textured and gripping images.

Mary Hart will depart...

...the set of Entertainment Tonight on Friday after hosting the show for 30 years. So, it seems like a good time to visit our photos of young Mary Hart (Harum) during her early years as a beauty queen in South Dakota.
