Alexia Webster is a freelance photographer born in Johannesburg and based in Cape Town, South Africa. 

Artist Statement:

Tired of a world where photos are so often taken but so rarely given, we created free outdoor photo studios on street corners around the country.

The images in this series are from five street studios that were set up in Hillbrow in Johannesburg, Woodstock, Blikkiesdorp, Du Noon and Cape Town city center. We invited passing families, individuals and groups of friends to pose at this temporary studio, and they received a free photograph on site to take home with them for their family album.

North Korea from the International Space Station: It looks like water. Or an island. Or a real view of how a brutal dictatorship impacts a nation.

Speaking of Jeff Lynne, people were all gaga over that Beatles tribute the other day, but no one ever needs to cover “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” again, because this is the best non-Beatles version that’s ever been performed. Prince is a goddamned monster.

Well, this is creepy. I was literally just showing a friend of mine this video on Sunday night as evidence that Mr. Prince can, without any doubt, shred a mean guitar.

Holy fucking fuck, Prince. My nipples are going to be hard all day after watching this.

WHERE DOES THE GUITAR GO? Look, we all know Prince is a musical genius.  But watch the final moments of the video and you’ll be astonished to discover HE CAN MAKE A GUITAR DISAPPEAR.  

HE THROWS IT INTO THE AIR AND WALKS OFF STAGES.  

WHERE’S THE GUITAR, STRING? WHERE’S THE GUITAR?

The last thing television needs is more serial killer dramas. But when they’re this well made, this smart and creative and unexpectedly funny? Then, yes, more “Hannibal,” please.

'Evil Dead' director Sam Raimi says smartphones should make us cry
Hollywood film director Sam Raimi is at Mobile World Congress today, giving a content creator’s perspective on the future of mobile entertainment. Sound, notes Raimi, is invisible, so “we don’t know what we’re missing” when experiencing a film at home or on a mobile device instead of a fully outfitted theater. Describing the ability of sound to convey emotion at a subliminal level, he asks the audience, “when was the last time you cried at something that was presented on a mobile device?”

Sam Raimi is a “content creator”? Christ on a crutch, what a warped, frigid way of describing a DIRECTOR OF FILMS.
