Links Lundi: stress and creative outlets

Science has discovered, officially, that living in a city stresses you out –  not only that, but how it happens.  Sounds like urban dwellers could use a creative outlet!

How about this amazing new camera that will never need to focus?  No, I don’t understand it either, but somehow it captures all the information needed in one shot, and you select and edit your focus digitally later.  Check out a few of the examples on the Lytro’s website – click anywhere on the picture to focus, and double-click to zoom in.  It’s pretty spectacular.

In other photography wonderfulness, here’s Dear Photograph, which somehow I had never seen before.  The project takes old photographs and re-shoots them where they were originally taken, which results in some beautifully evocative images.
