Photography Speaks: 150 Photographers on Their Art, by Brooks Johnson.
My favourite photos from the book are:

Thomas Carlyle, 1967 by Julia Margaret Cameron (p 67)

Moencopi Strata, Capital Reef, Utah, 1962 by Minor White (p 195)

And I couldn’t find a picture of this one: Shimizu, Japan, Summer 1969 by Jun Shiraoka (p 235)

There is an interview / studio visit with Parra (above) over at Fecal Face. You may recognise his work if you are familiar with Stones Throw Records. Also see Parra’s work over at Rockwell Clothing.

Also, off topic, you can generate Rotational Ambigram’s here. A Rotational Ambigram is a word that looks the same upside down, below is an example of what james looks like as an ambigram:

There is a fantastic exhibition on at Sophie Gannon Gallery: Rob Mcleish & Chris Hanrahan: Good Mood. You can see it on the Gallery website, but it is so much better in person. My favourites are Chris’ Souled Out (which is the above image) and Rob’s Running Jokes.

If you own Think Tank on CD you should be able to rewind from track one and discover the secret track Me, White Noise. But, if you are lazy then you can download it here, as well as the alternative version off the Good Song single, also known as My White Noise.

Think Tank is by Blur, the cover artwork is by Banksy.

The above piece is by Pascal Blanchet. His work is amazing, and it can be seen in animated form in the video for Carlos (my name is not) by Maxime Robin, see it on youtube.
Digg* talked to Terry Gilliam about everything, and he makes reference to a new project on the go soon.

“Everyone wants to understand art. Why don’t we try to understand the song of a bird? Why do we love the night, the flowers, everything around us, without trying to understand them? But in the case of a painting, people think they have to understand. If only they would realize above all that an artist works of necessity, that he himself is only an insignificant part of the world, and that no more importance should be attached to him than to plenty of other things which please us in the world though we can’t explain them; people who try to explain pictures are usually barking up the wrong tree.”
- Picasso
