See the big picture of how suburban developments are changing the country's landscape, with aerial photos and an architect's commentary

by sbrothier
Even before Google allowed anybody with an Internet connection to see a satellite view of anyplace on the globe, I loved looking at books with aerial photography. A few favorites that focus on natural and human-made landscapes of the United States are Alex S. MacLean's Designs on the Land: Exploring American from the Air, Dolores Hayden's and photographer Jim Wark's A Field Guide to Sprawl and Alan Berger's Drosscape: Wasting Land in Urban America.

Milk Made - From Tulsa to Marfa with Larry Clark

by sbrothier (via)
Larry’s work brings us into the harsher realities of the world. His first ground-breaking photo book Tulsa flaunted his secret life of drugs, sex and violence in an era where going steady just meant wearing a pin. Leaving nothing to the imagination, Larry’s photos showcased the truth about just how perverse and depraved a life of excess can become. Larry first started making images to “show you what you couldn’t see…” or perhaps, in the case of his first film Kids, were too afraid to see.

Breadpig Shop - Buy Geeky Things & Make the World Suck Less! — Balloon Mapping Kit

by sbrothier
Once assembled, this kit -- developed by community researchers from the Public Laboratory for Open Technology and Science -- enables you to collect your own aerial photos from up to 1000 ft. Using the open source MapKnitter web-based software, you can stitch the resulting images into a web-viewable map -- your own "counter-cartography" Google Maps. Use it to tell a different story from the "official" map -- document contamination (it was used to map the BP oil spill) or wetlands loss, or to record a temporary condition like the Occupy Oakland encampment.
