A continuation of Heintz’ series, “The Vows” was recently released, and features Heintz and Chauncey renewing their vows in a satirical-but very real- ceremony.
The Whitney Biennial only happens every two years, yet it is perhaps the most prominent and fundamental celebration of American contemporary art in the world. Featuring works from over 100 American artists, this rarer-than-a-lunar-eclipse event is a must-see if you're in NYC -- and it ends May 25th. Don't think fine art can help your photography?

When I first started to get into photography i came across Joel Tjintjelaar's work. It was because of him I bought a 10 stop ND filter. Joel creates these masterpieces by using B+W ND110 & ND106 filters, and in most of his new work he is stacking the two filters to achieve 16 stops. By doing this most of his exposures are 5 to 10 minutes long. Joel uses a Canon 7D, a variety of lenses, and Lightroom 3.0, PS CS5, Silver Efex Pro 2 for post process.
