    (Old but brilliant) supercut of people in TV/movies unrealistically “enhancing” videos, which happens in almost every show and makes me laugh every time.

    There is a lake in Tanzania with a pH level so toxic, it essentially turns any animal that touches it into stone. Photographer Nick Brandt captures the horrific beauty of these petrified animals in his book Across the Ravaged Land.

    9/11/01, as viewed from Brooklyn. Union Square memorial shortly after. The World Trade Center site one month later.

    Every year on this day I’m reminded of these photos I took in New York on and around 9/11. When I think objectively about 9/11 now, I can’t help but associate it with how much worse it’s made the world - our foreign policy, our morals, our wars. It’s become a blanket excuse for attitudes that have led to more innocent deaths than the attack itself…

    But looking at these photos reminds me solely of that day - stripped of all future context - and how immensely bizarre New York City was in the weeks that followed. It was a strange, confusing, scary day for me and for many others, and the time that followed was a New York that no one will ever (hopefully) see again. It was a quiet, united, terrified but strong New York. A place haunted by “MISSING” posters, tensing up at the sound of airplanes at night, and actually wondering when it was okay to make jokes again, or to go back to work/school like everything was normal. A city well known for its unfriendliness became one giant family, if only for a short time. Strangers on the street were your brothers and sisters. We were all in it together. It was probably the most surreal experience of my life.

    Happy 20th birthday to probably my favorite TV show of all time, The X-Files. It premiered 20 years ago today, in 1993. I was watching.
Sadly there isn’t an X-Files blu-ray release yet, but the excellent DVD sets are only $18 on Amazon right now, which is a steal. View high resolution

    This is me on the actual Iron Throne on the Game of Thrones set in Belfast last month. My mind is still blown that we got to do this and they took these badass photos for us. Photo by Helen Sloan. View high resolution

    A few photos I shot of Nine Inch Nails during the recent tour. I’ll trickle out more on the NIN Tumblr over the coming weeks.

    A nice behind-the-scenes feature about the creation of the current Nine Inch Nails tour production, with commentary from Trent, the band, our production team, and me.

    Here’s a video teaser (with some previously unreleased music) our record label put together for the artwork/packaging of Nine Inch Nails’ new album. I did the layouts and photography for the album, utilizing artwork created by the brilliant Russell Mills. The album comes out September third.
